    Default Eyeglass suggestions needed

    I'm pretty sure I will need glasses and I don't mind wearing them but what is the current hot look for an oval face?

    Ovals can wear anything. That's the ideal face shape.

    I have a roundish face, so I look best with rectangular frames.

    When you go to pick them out, the salespeople are usually very good about helping you tell what looks good.
    I like to pick out about 3 or 4 different frames, and narrow it down from there.

    The last time I got glasses I tried on probably 40 different frames. The person who helps you choose frames asked me a bunch of questions such as how do I wear my hair, makeup, clothing style, etc. Then she picked all the frames. I tried them on and she would say "yes" or "no". We whittled it down to 4 pairs and I ended up with 2.

    I have a very narrow long face and will usually only be offered 1-2 frames or kid frames. So, I went to a place that specializes in trendy frames and fitting frames to faces. I would try something like that. The eye exam was good and thorough as well. Look in magazines to see what's popular with people that have a similar shaped face.

    When I go to look at new glasses I see lots of square shaped ones. It takes a little time to get used to them but they look good on pretty much everyone.
    ..and I mean that from the heart of my bottom..

    Just try on lots of pairs. You'll instantly know which ones are wrong and the right ones should be instantly obvious too. Just look in the mirror. I wouldn't get too caught up with what's in 'fashion' as they will quickly go out of fashion too. Pick the pair that suits you.
