So, it is time to go shopping for a new pair of glasses, you walk into Swing Optical and are overwhelmed by the selection and not sure where to start. Below is a guide that can help point you in the right direction and our knowledgeable team is always there to help!
Round – when you think of round glasses celebrities such as John Lennon may come to mind. This shape is classic but can also be difficult to pull off depending on the size of the frames themselves. A round frame typically is most suited for those who have square, rectangle or oval shaped faces.
Rectangle - Rectangular eyeglass frames are a good choice for people with oval, round or heart-shaped faces who are looking for an angular-yet-slender frame, though nearly anyone can pull this frame shape off which is why we carry a wide selection of different colors and materials.
Oval - Like rectangular eyeglass frames, oval frames are good choices for people looking for a more modest look. A good choice for people with square, rectangular, oval or triangle-shaped faces. Oval frames are slender and fashionable.
Square - Looking for frames that give you a more intellectual look? You'll find this in a classic square frame. Best suited to people with round and oval faces, square glasses provide the angular shape needed to offset more rounded facial features.
Cat-Eye – These frames make a statement. Cat-eye glasses bring a confident yet playful feeling, making them the perfect choice for any fashionista looking to make a bold and unforgettable statement.
Over Sized - Go big, or go home! From retro elegant to cute and quirky, these extra-large frames are a perfect fit for almost any occasion. When choosing an over sized pair of glasses, be sure that they are also functional. Over sized frames can overpower a smaller face and are a little harder to pull off.
You have found a few pair that you like, and now it is decision time. Did you know that we have a machine in store that allows you to take photos in the frames and look them over without having to take a selfie with your phone? Come in today and let us help you find a pair of glasses that not only look great, but shows your unique personality.
