Many styles of glasses can compromise your sense of individuality by imposing their own character on your face. For example, cumbersome ‘Ugly Betty’ style frames can limit your make up choices, cramp your features and quickly become dated.

For a truly personal look, choose the freedom of Silhouette’s rimless glasses. Designed to be windows to the soul, Silhouette frames are sculpted to enhance your features, not hide them.

The three rules for the perfect pair of glasses –

Step 1: Forget Fashion, Focus on Yourself

Silhouette’s style consultant, Pauline Voce, believes that many people wear the wrong frames for their face as they are influenced by fashion rather than their personal aesthetics.

“Your glasses are beyond fashion – they are a part of you. It’s fun to have loads of styles to fit in with fashion, but not everyone can afford to replace their glasses with every passing trend. We all need a classic pair that suits every trend simply because they are designed to suit you. It’s this bespoke individuality that makes Silhouettes rimless glasses so popular”.

Step 2: Analyse your face shape

Take a fresh look at your face. The shape of your face will map out which frames will best suit you. There is a pair of Silhouettes for everyone, so work with what you have naturally and your Silhouettes will accentuate your favourite features and detract the eye from any flaws!

Round faces are generally associated with wide foreheads and round chins; angular frames are therefore the best option as they add a flattering contrast. Deep glasses can make a round face appear short, so choosing frames that are as deep as they are wide is an impressive remedy for this.

Square faces have broad foreheads, wider jaw lines and angular chins. Curved frames will soften the structure of square faces so choose round or oval frames. Steer clear of harsh lines as these will accentuate square lines.

Make the most of your eyes with Silhouette

Heart-shaped faces typically have broad foreheads with angular chins so you should look at both angular frames and rounded frames to see which compliments your face best.

The main rule is to avoid styles that are wider at the top than at the bottom as these can make you look top heavy.

Oblong face shapes suit wide frames as they add structure and detract the eye from vertical length. Steer clear of narrow and round styles as these will exaggerate the length of your face.

Oval faces are considered the most fortunate as you can carry off most styles... which is lucky but it makes it very hard to choose!

Step 3: Express yourself with a flash of colour

Rimless glasses are designed to enhance your best feature – your eyes. Framing them perfectly without detracting from their beauty, Silhouette introduces subtle swathes of colour across the bridge and on the arm. Working just like a sweep of eye shadow, Silhouette offers each style in an array of hues to compliment every skin tone.
