Thanks for submitting your photo to the Robert Roope Frame Style Guide. Based on the photo you uploaded our experts have compiled some recomendations for you below.
This style guide is a collection of tips on how to choose glasses. It has been compiled by Robert Roope, an eyewear designer and dispensing optician.
He encourages his clients to find a frame that ‘feels good’ and ‘finds a home’ on their face. He says “the right frame will ‘feel right’ the moment you try it on”. We hope this simple guide will help you ‘find it’.
Your Profile:
Face:
Oval
You have the classic oval face and I suggest you select a frame that does not take the emphasis away from your face shape, but enhances it. Do not choose strong colours. Choose light shades and frames that are more square than round to add character if required.
Brow:
High
You have a high brow line which is the ideal shape so avoid hiding it away with the top rim of the frame. By choosing a frame with the top rim slightly below the brow will maintain your eye’s high open appearance.
Additional Comments:
Hi Kelly, your well proportioned face structure needs to be taken care of when you choose glasses. Choosing a solid coloured bridge will shorten your vnose vey slightly. To maintain your very feminine look, upswept frames are ideal for you. If you want to clash with tradition, then go for the angular square shapes that will create a more ‘sharper’ character in your appearance.. Please note that it’s important that you choose a frame where the top rim of the frame does not position itself above your brow line as this will make your face look longer. kind regards, Robert
Recommended Frames:
The aim of this Frame Style Guide is to help you create a balanced face ‘architecture’ where the eyes, nose and mouth have a more ‘balanced’ appearance; round frames tend to create a more rounded friendly look whereas square, oblong and angular shapes create a more dynamic/aggressive/assertive look. The bridge shape affects the size and shape of the nose and the overall size of the frame needs to be in proportion to the size of the head. However, the current trend is to wear frames slightly larger than normal.
