Frames and Face Shapes: Triangle

Victor LopesFrames for Fashion


Now let’s look at a triangle or triangular shaped face. This face shape is best described with a forehead which is narrower and a face that widens at the cheeks and chin. Some celebrity examples here would be Jennifer Aniston and Keith Urban, see photos below. Being blessed with a triangle face shape; choose a frame to draw attention up in an effort to make the jaw line appear softer. Consider a frame that tends to angle up and out at the corner, like a cat-eye shape. For men, the shape recommendation is to stay more rectangular. In both men and women, choosing a half frame or a two toned colour frame will emphasize the top half of your face. The same goes for frames that have detailing or bold colours near the top of the frame.

Our showroom at nv have a number of frame models from Paulino, Ganeko Unit and AM Eyewear that fulfill the tenants above. All three lines are exclusive in Winnipeg to nv Eye Care Eye Wear. Come in and see these modern and stylish frames and complete your new fall look.
