There are pros and cons of choosing large and small frames. If you have a small face, large frames may overwhelm your features and make your face appear smaller than it is. Smaller frames will enhance the overall look of your face. If you have a larger face, smaller frames might make it look more substantial than it is in reality.

  1. Shape

Consider whether you want to choose classic round frames or more modern square ones. If you are going for a vintage look, round frames are the right choice for you; if you like futuristic styles, choose square ones instead. For a rounder look, check out our Katy style frames.
