WHO: For oval shaped face
If you have an oval shaped face, just about any frame looks good on you. Aviators usually have the perfect fit. They’re also a classic frame that’s timeless and can be made casual or dressy.
AVOID: Oversized frames. Frames that are too large for your features will overwhelm your face.

WHO: For narrow shaped face
