In the final week of Frame Yourself, we will help those of you with triangle-shaped faces fine the perfectly flattering pair of designer glasses! This shape is exactly what it sounds like – a silhouette that begins narrow around the forehead and widens from the cheeks to the jawline. Minnie Driver and Renee Zellweger are two famous faces with this shape, and they definitely know how to dress it up!
The main idea in finding a great pair of glasses is to create balance. With triangle-shaped faces, you want a top-heavy style, or one that draws the most attention to the upper half of the face.
Minnie Driver wears CHANEL 5207 sunglasses in this photo, which are an oversized pair of shades that are upswept at the outer corners, drawing the eye upwards and giving the illusion of balance. This style features a glossy black, thin, plastic rim surrounding dark lenses, with round, riveted temples that bear the brand’s signature CC logo.
For designer eyeglasses, Renee Zellweger has chosen a pair that brings the focus upwards as well. The flared corners and pronounced top line make it a perfect top-heavy style. For a similar frame, try Vue dc ROB eyeglasses. This has the same round silhouette with a glossy plastic rim. It is available in clear, black, brown, tortoise, and more.
The two actresses have the same idea in this photo. Ray Ban 3205 sunglasses are a great choice for triangle faces. Since the broadening of the face does not typically begin until the cheekbones, these aviator sunglasses do a great job bringing balance to the upper half of the face.
