Yesterday we kicked off the first tutorial from our 50 Shades series, where we touched on finding the right frames/glasses/shades for an inverted/heart shaped face. Today it’s all about the Oblong face which falls in the category of angular face shapes. Dive in! lets find you those perfect frames.


Oblong faces have narrow foreheads, high cheekbones and equally narrow chins. For that reason, women with oblong faces should choose frames that are wide or slightly wider than the broadest part of the face. Glasses with detailed embellishments also look great with the high cheek bones usually found on oblong faces. You can choose a classic rectangular shape for a sophisticated, studious look, a retro cat eye.
