Face Shapes and Branded Eyeglasses

Many people are concerned with how stylish their glasses are. Eyeglasses aren’t only something to improve your vision anymore. They’re a necessary fashion accessory. A lot of people want to buy and wear glasses that are trendy and chic, but they also want to buy glasses that fit the shape of their face. This is perhaps the most difficult part of buying a new pair of glasses. D&G is one of the best brands to consider when you’re looking for new eyeglasses, especially if you want to splurge a little for a luxury, designer frame.

If you want to look chic and trendy, pick a style that fits your face! There are seven types of face shapes: oval, oblong, round, base up triangle, base down triangle, square, and diamond.


People with oval faces generally have balanced proportions, which makes it very easy to find glasses that fit your face shape. The best frames for oval faces are frames that are about as wide as the widest part of the face. More rectangular frames with rounded edges are usually the best for this face shape.


Oblong faces are longer, with a straighter jaw and cheek line and a longer nose. People with oblong faces sometimes attempt to make their face look shorter and more proportioned. If this is your aim, D&G offers some wonder frames such as D&G DD 5037 that have extensive depth and frame temples that make your face appear wider or frames with a lower bridge that will appear to shorten your nose.


Round faces are, as their name implies, equal in proportion and without any facial angles. The best type of eyeglass frame for a round face is one that will make your face look longer and thinner. The style you should look for is one that has narrow, angled lenses and temples or a frame that has a clear, wide nose bridge. Additionally, frames that are wide work wonderfully for round faces. For men, a frame such as the D&G DD 1188 would be perfect, as it’s a wide frame with a wide bridge. For women, the D&G DD 1199 eyeglass frame is also great for round faces because the temple design is especially wide.

Base Up Triangle

This face style is wide at the top and narrow at the bottom. In order to make the upper part of your face appear thinner and smaller, eyeglass frames that are wider along the bottom rim are perfect. Rimless styles are also very useful, as are frames that come in very light colors such as light grey, light pink, or a light brown. e.g: D&G DD 1216.

Base Down Triangle

The base down triangle face shape is the exact opposite of the base up triangle face shape. The base down triangle shape contains a narrow forehead and a wider chin and mouth area. The best style of eyeglasses for this face shape are frames that include a low of color or frames that have heavy detailing on the top rim. Frames that are in the traditional retro cat-eye shape are also perfect. If you’re looking for a luxury D&G frame, a model such as the DD 1192 will work wonders because it’s the perfect cat-eye style and it comes in so many fun colors, such as blue, black, and tortoise.


People with square faces usually have strong jaw lines and wide foreheads, all of which are equally proportioned. In order to soften the face’s angles, the best frame shape is one that is narrow or a frame that has oval lenses like D&G DD 1192 and D&G DD 1202. Though many models are there, these are the most preferred.


There aren’t many people who have a diamond face shape, which means it’s the hardest face shape to fit for eyeglasses. People with diamond shaped faces tend to have narrow angles around their eyes and jaws and have high, dramatic cheekbones. To make the face look softer and to highlight the area around the eyes, cat-eye, oval, or rimless frames like D&G DD 5059 and D&G DD 5072 are perfect. If you’re intending on buying a new pair of eyeglasses, you should make sure you know your face shape. Remember to fit your face shape to the best D&G eyeglass in order to highlight your best features.

While there are seven distinct face shapes, there are so many different styles of eyeglass frames from D&G.
