Choosing The Right Frame
The most attractive frames usually counterbalance your face shape and features.
Your eyes should be centered within the shape of the lens
The frame should be wide enough to allow a slight clearance between the temples and the sides of your head.
The top of the frame should follow your brow line. If you have thick eyebrows, consider a thicker, darker frame.
The size and weight of your glasses should be proportionate to your body size and weight.
