Knowing your face shape is the most helpful tool in finding your ideal glasses. The width of a cheekbone or the angle of a jaw influences how well certain shapes will read on you. Use the list below as a reference to determine which shape you most closely resemble.
Skin tone is too often overlooked or misunderstood when choosing glasses. The shade of your skin (light to dark) is not as important as the tone (cool or warm). At Fetch we select our frame colors to work with all tones. Black and Tortoise frames are great standbys but don't be afraid to play with color.
Considering your hair and eye color can also be a good starting point to help direct your glasses search. Navigating frame color choices is easier when you know what works well with your assets.
Unlike shoe size or clothing size, frame size is not a hard and fast rule as simple as remembering one number. Frame measurements can be helpful in finding a good fit but there are some tricks to make them more useful. Let’s break down the numbers.
Choosing great glasses is part art and part science. We have been designing, selling and fitting glasses for years and love to help customers demystify the process by explaining what looks good and why. Frame shape, size and color all play a part in creating the perfect look. Use these tips as a handy reference to guide you through the selection process, and remember to trust your instincts. Loving how you look in a frame is the most important rule of all.
