Frames and Face Shapes: Square

Victor LopesFrames for Fashion


Square faces are characterized by a broad forehead and strong jaw line where the width and length are about the same proportion. A frame look that is aesthetically pleasing by most others with the square face shape requires one to soften the angles of the face and make it look longer. This can be achieved by picking frames that are move oval in shape or are slightly more angular with curved corners. Similar to the round shape, choosing a higher bridge or a more narrow shape will help to elongate a square face. Some celebrities with this face shape include Selena Gomez and Brad Pitt.

Our showroom at nv have a number of frame models from Vinylize, Jonas Paul, Ganeko Unit and AM Eyewear that fulfill the tenants above. These frames come in acetates (plastics) and in metals with an astounding variety in colours and patterns.  All four 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.
