Just like how round faces will look better with squarish glasses, those with a square face shape will look good in glasses with rounded edges. Soften your features with round glasses and look instantly more youthful!
For long face shape
Squarish glasses help to balance out the length of your face so choose one that is slightly wider than your cheekbones to make your face appear wider and more proportionate. Glasses with a thick frame can be trendy too and because it looks slightly bulkier, it balances out your face.
