For the nerdy freaks, rectangular and wayfarer frames are topping the trend charts. For the hipster ones, it’s the cat-eyes and tortoiseshell frames that are being given the most love these days.

Does face shape and colour matter when choosing frames for prescription glasses?
Yes. A splendid style of glasses looks way more appealing when matched with the right face shape. To know what your face shape is, the quickest way is to look in the mirror and draw lines outlining your face. In no time you’ll be able to tell whether you have a square, round, oval or heart-shaped face.
Once you know, you can match it with the frames. For instance, Round, Cat-eye, and Aviator frames look fascinating on oval, square, and heart-shaped faces. Rectangular, Wayfarer, and Browlines look impressive on oval and round faces.
When it comes to colours, just like clothes, see if the colour of the frames matches your undertones.

Cool skin tones portray a fashionable appeal with silver, blue, pink, purple, and similar ones.
