The type of glasses with which you choose to adorn your face can say a lot about you. Glasses can convey everything from a sense of strong intellect to a penchant for the whimsical, or an artistic leaning. Choosing the proper pair of glasses can be perplexing, but the most important item to bear in mind is that you must choose a frame that fits your face shape. A pair of glasses is like a well-tailored suit. If the size and fit is correct, you will look dapper no matter what the occasion, but you must know what works with your individual shape.
