Still on the fence about whether or not aviator prescription glasses are for you? Determining how this style works with your face shape will help to steer you in the right direction.
While aviator glasses are versatile and work well with all sorts of features, they do work better with some face shapes than others - like with all other frame styles!
The information below can be applied to aviator glasses for women and men alike.
Aviators on oval faces: The symmetric, striking look of aviator frames brings the bone-structure of an oval face to life. If this is your face shape, aviators are a great match and will bring balance to your features.
Aviators on square faces: Square faces feature naturally sleek angles and broad jaw-lines. If this is your face shape, you might find that rounder frames do a better job of accentuating your features.
Aviators on round faces: If you have a round face shape, you might find that a pair of rectangular or square frames do your bone structure more justice than the slightly rounded look of aviator frames.
Aviators on diamond shaped faces: Aviators do a wonderful job of drawing attention to the strengths of the diamond face shape. They play well with the jawline and do a good job of accentuating the cheekbones of those with this facial structure.
Aviators on heart shaped faces: If your face is heart-shaped, aviator eyeglasses are an excellent choice. The brow heavy design of aviators does an excellent job of bringing balance to the narrow jaw-lines of those with this shape.
Although this frame style is a classic, in modern-times you can find aviator prescription glasses in just about every color and material imaginable. Whether you’re looking for aviator frames for reading, all-day wear, or for the sun there are some tips that might help you to narrow down your choices.
Most importantly, knowing your underlying skin tone.
If your skin has underlying cool tones, silver metal aviator glasses could go a long way to make your features pop. If metals, not your thing, a modernized take on the aviator with acrylic frames in a cool-toned color is another great way to go.
Those with warm underlying skin tones might want to consider a pair of gold-toned metal frames to set off their natural glow.
Looking for something bold?
Try out a pair of thick-rimmed or patterned aviators!
On the other end of the spectrum and looking to keep your look timeless?
A thin, neutrally colored rim or even rimless aviator frames will give you all of the style you’re after without the fuss.
