The Perfect Star-Inspired Glasses for You
Jennifer Aniston in Rounded Frames
WORKS FOR "The soft, rounded angles of the rectangle make this style suitable for angular faces as well as round faces," says Emily Mullé, head stylist of DITTO.com."The top of the frame is slightly curved and upswept, which makes it a particularly flattering choice for oval faces, or heart-shaped faces with high cheekbones."
FIT TIP "It's all about proportions and balance," says Mullé. "Proportionally match the size of the glasses to the size of your face and your features, but choose a frame shape that is opposite your face shape. For example, if you have a round face, choose rectangular frames -- the angles will offset the fullness of your face. If you have an angular face or strong jaw line, choosing glasses with softer lines or rounded edges will balance the sharp features."
Zoe Saldana in Oval Cat-Eyes
WORKS FOR "The beauty of cat-eye glasses is that they tend to fit really nicely across a wide range of face shapes, whether you have a round face shape or something more rectangular," says Classic Specs co-founder Andrew Lipovsky.
FIT TIP "When trying on glasses, you always want to make sure that your eyes are center in the frame horizontally."
Jordana Brewster’s Rectangular’s
WORKS FOR "This is a classic shape with clean lines lending itself to the symmetrical and universal nature of an oval shape," says Joe Cole, the Executive Director of Lookmatic.com.
FIT TIP "Most people have a pair of frames already so I would suggest taking a look at those and using them as a starting point," says Cole. "You can even pull out a ruler so you can match up the measurements with our styles."
Jaime King in Clear Frames
WORKS FOR "Clear acetate frames act as a natural highlighter, instantly brightening up the eye area and removing shadows cast by darker colors," says Jill Gregory of Fetch Eyewear. "A true clear is great for cool skin tones, if you have a warmer skin tone try a translucent color with a warm grey or golden cast.
FIT TIP "Pay attention to your brow line and cheekbones," says Gregory. "The right frames will play up your natural assets, the wrong ones will work against you. Contours of the frame should follow the general shape of your brow. A frame that cuts across your cheek bones fights with the architecture of your face."
