How To Choose the Right Cat-Eye Glasses for Your Face

  • BY Zenni Optical

Cat-eye glasses are a huge trend in eyewear right now. With a wide range of shapes, sizes, and colors available, it’s an easy style for almost anyone to wear. The key to choosing the perfect pair is finding the right cat-eye for your face shape.

Cat-Eye Glasses for Oval Faces

This face shape can pull off almost any cat-eye style, from oversized to skinny, narrow frames. Not sure which pair is right for you? As a good rule of thumb, always opt for frames that are slightly wider than the widest part of your face.

Cat-Eye Glasses for Square Faces

Narrow frames elongate the face and the upturned wings of cat-eye glasses create balance for a square face. Try a winged style that has rounded edges to soften your features, and avoid square or rectangular frames.

Cat-Eye Glasses for Round Faces

To draw attention away from rounded cheeks or a fuller jawline, opt for cat-eye sunglasses that are more angular. An oversized frame that curves upwards, or one that is thicker, will also flatter a round face.

Cat-Eye Glasses for Heart Faces

Cat-eye frames that are wider than your forehead work best for a heart-shaped face. For a balanced appearance, opt for light colors or go bold with classic tortoiseshell frames with embellished edges.

Cat-Eye Glasses for Diamond Faces

A rimless or semi-rimless pair of glasses works great for a diamond-shaped face. Choose an angular style of cat-eye glasses with pronounced wings to balance your jawline and soften your overall look.

Pear-shaped faces tend to have a broader jawline and a narrow forehead. Opt for cat-eye glasses that are inspired by aviators or have an angular square shape. And don’t be afraid to play with color!
