Perfect Frames for Square Faces:  Find Your Flattering Fit

Choosing the right pair of eyeglasses can be a transformative experience, especially for those with square-shaped faces. The key lies in finding frames that compliment your features while expressing your unique style. This blog will guide you through the best frame styles for square faces and offer tips on how to style them for a perfect look.


Understanding Square Faces

Square faces are characterized by strong, angular jawlines, broad foreheads, and a roughly equal width and height. The goal when selecting eyeglasses is to soften the angles and add balance to your face. Certain frame styles can enhance your natural features while creating a harmonious look.


Best Frame Styles for Square Faces

  1. Round Frames

Round eyeglass frames are a top choice for square faces. The curves of round frames contrast with the angularity of your face, creating a softer appearance. They add a touch of vintage charm and are available in various sizes to suit your preferences.

Check out our VR-19 round frame in Gunmetal Gray below for a chic, neutral everyday look.



  1. Oval Frames

Oval frames offer a similar softening effect to round frames but with a more elongated shape. They provide a balanced look that complements the strong lines of a square face. Oval frames are versatile and come in many styles and colors.


  1. Cat-Eye Frames

Cat-eye frames add a playful and feminine touch to your look. The upward sweep of the frame lifts the face, drawing attention to your eyes and away from the angles of your jawline. This style is perfect for adding a bit of glamour and sophistication.

For a unique cat-eye frame shop our VC-5 collection in red, green or blue shown here. These unique frames offer not only a flattering cat-eye shape for square faces, but also a clipable attachment to transform the frame from prescriptive lens to a prescriptive lens with sunglass clip. 

  1. Brow line Frames

Brow line frames, featuring a bold upper frame that accentuates your brow line, are ideal for square faces. They draw attention upward, balancing your strong jawline.

This retro-inspired style is both fashionable and flattering.

Tips for Styling Your Eyeglass Frames


  1. Color and Material

When choosing frame colors, consider your skin tone and personal style. Warm tones like gold, tortoiseshell, and brown can add warmth and softness to your look, while cool tones like silver, black, and blue can create a striking contrast. Meanwhile, lightweight materials such as acetate and titanium can provide comfort and durability without adding bulk. Our frames are all designed to be lightweight, providing a comfortable fit. 


  1. Size Matters

Ensure your frames are proportionate to your face size. Frames that are too large can overwhelm your features, while frames that are too small may not provide the desired balance. A good fit is crucial for comfort and style. When shopping our collections be sure to use our virtual try on option and see how the frames will look on your face in real time!


  1. Accessorize Thoughtfully

Coordinate your eyewear with your overall style. For a cohesive look, match your frames with your clothing and accessories. For instance, cat-eye frames can be paired with vintage-inspired outfits, while round frames can complement a more casual, laid-back style.


  1. Hair and Makeup

Consider your hairstyle and makeup when styling your eyeglasses. For those with long hair, wearing it down can help balance the proportions of your face. Soft, natural makeup can enhance the overall look without drawing too much attention away from your frames.


  1. Confidence is Key

Ultimately, the best accessory is confidence. Choose frames that make you feel comfortable and confident. When you feel good about your eyewear, it shows in your demeanor and enhances your overall appearance.

Finding the perfect pair of eyeglasses for a square face is all about balance and contrast. By selecting frames that soften your angles and highlight your best features, you can achieve a stylish and flattering look. Whether you opt for round, oval, cat-eye, or brow line frames, remember to choose colors and styles that reflect your personality and make you feel confident. Happy shopping and enjoy your new stylish frames!
