How To Choose The Right Glasses For Your Face

Alex Perry has launched his first eyewear collection, Alex Perry designed for Specsavers.

This chic 22-piece female collection contains daring, outgoing styles for red carpet moments, as well as subtle yet sophisticated looks for everyday wear. Designed around three different themes, the range includes: satin black with winter pinks and shimmering crystals; dazzling diamantes on black and silver; and, trend setting nudes and browns.

Alex Perry’s advice on what frames are right for you:

With so many different shapes and sizes to choose from, when it comes to picking frames, it can be a little overwhelming. One thing to remember is that the style of frame you choose can considerably change how you look.

Generally, frames should be no higher than the line of your eyebrows. The lower edge should not sit on your cheeks, even when you smile, and the frames should be no wider than the width of your face at the temples. Below are Alex’s tips for choosing the right frame for your face shape:

Oval: Evenly proportioned and softly rounded. You can be adventurous as this face shape suits almost all frame styles.

Long: Go for wide frames with a strong top line. Avoid small, square shapes and instead opt for a style with all over colour.

Rectangle: Defined by high cheekbones and a deep forehead. Consider a wide frame with a strong top line. Avoid small square shapes and try a frame style with all-over colour.

Round: Fairly short with a wide forehead, full cheeks and a round chin. Consider angular or geometric styles as they draw attention to the top half of the face. Avoid oval or round shaped frames.

: Defined by a broad, deep forehead, a wide jaw and a square chin. Opt for oval frames as they soften the jaw line. Avoid angular frames as these will emphasise the angular facial features.
