These guidelines may help you choose your HOT Spectacles:
- Oval faces have the most flexibility in glasses styles but we suggest choosing a pair that are as wide as the broadest part of your face.
- Square faces complimented by glasses that are slightly curved or wider than they are deep. The top of the frames should sit high enough on the face to downplay the jaw line.
- Oblong faces- are longer than they are wide with a long straight cheek line and sometimes longish nose. They look good with deeper glasses perhaps with decorative arms and a low bridge to shorten the nose.
- Round faces- suit glasses with straight or angular lines. Deep colours such as black or tortoise also minimise fullness.
- Triangular faces- are defined by a broad forehead and narrow mouth and chin. Glasses with a thin rim and vertical lines will help balance the bottom part of the face. They should not sit too high on the face. Avoid large glasses, heavy nose bridges, bold colours and square shapes.
- Large Noses- can be balanced by oversized glasses- smaller designs will accentuate the nose.
- Long Noses- suit glasses with high sidebars that draw attention upward toward the temples and away from the nose. A double bridge helps a nose appear shorter.
- Small Noses- benefit from a high bridge in a colour which lengthens the nose.
- The size of your glasses- should be in scale with your face size.
- Colouring- works well when it compliments your best feature (e.g. brown frames to match brown eyes).
