As someone who recently went through a bit of a four-eyed catastrophe (broken glasses and an empty stash of contacts), I've spent a lot of time trying on new frames through online try-on programs. I would see a frame on the screen or on another person and think: I like that style. That's totally me. Yet I'd try them on my narrow face and be all, yikes. Not flattering at all. It's interesting how different-shaped glasses can make such a drastic difference to your appearance and how much this depends on the shape of your face. While it isn't an exact science, understanding your face shape - your positive attributes and weaker features - is similar to knowing if your skin undertones are cool or warm or whether or not your body shape is pear or apple. And it just might help you find the perfect pair of specs. Rivet & Sway does an awesome job at breaking down face types and making suggestions as to which frames might be the best picks. - By Michelle Horton
