Question #1: Are your features sharp and angular or soft and rounded?

If you have a rounded face or softer features, go for angular specs in square, rectangular, or walnut shape.

On the flip side, if you have an angular face, you would want to soften them with rounded frames.

Question #2: Is your face wider at the top half or at the bottom half?

If your face is wider at the top, opt for bottom-heavy frames to strike a perfect balance. Aviators or walnut-shaped frames will flatter you best.

Meanwhile, top-heavy frames will offset the bottom half of your face if this part is the widest feature on your face. Opt for frames with thick top rims or go for ones with a narrower cut on its bottom half.

Question #3: What is your style? Do you prefer a bold look or an understated look?

If you want your glasses to be the focal point of your look, then you'll want thick-rimmed frames to do all the talking.

On the other hand, you can also opt for a subtle, barely-there pair. Try thin-rimmed specs or nude-colored ones for a simple yet polished look.
