- Round faces are particularly enhanced by big rectangular or square frames. 


- For rectangular faces, we strongly recommend you... rectangular frames! Some round models may fit as well. 


- If your shape is diamond-shaped, "cat eyes" and "panthos" frames will look very good on you. The main characteristic of this shape is rising curves at each end. Round frames are also recommended.


- For square-shaped faces, glasses with geometric shapes are perfect. On the other hand, round or "panthos" glasses will soften the shape of your face. Choose according to your desires.


- Do you have a face with an inverted triangular shape? You need to choose glasses with round edges to highlight your face.
