If you keep track of fashion, you know that oversized glasses have been the key eyewear choice of all celebrities during recent years. In fact, this fashion was introduced long ago (in around 1960s by Jackie Kennedy). Today both vision glasses and sunglasses of a big size are popular again, mostly due to the fact that they flatter all face shapes. That is why, in this article, we will provide you with some useful information regarding them.
The main thing you need to know is that “oversized” does not mean that your glasses should not fit your face. Oversized glasses for people with narrow or small faces will have a different notion of oversized than those whose faces are bigger and wider. There is no standard size you can use as a sample. Just remember that bigger than normal does not mean too large because it can compromise your vision and your comfort.
When you select oversized glasses, always remember ensuring that your pupils are positioned exactly behind the centre of the lenses from both sides horizontally. Even if you opt for super-big glasses, your eyebrows should be visible above the top of the frame.
Oversized glasses can be considerably heavier than normal glasses. That is why it is crucial that their weight is distributed properly over the bridge of your nose. Otherwise, you will have lots of problems because your glasses will crease your skin, press your temples, and cause irritation. Do not be afraid to experiment with different shapes but remember about your traditional style. Oversized glasses are typically chosen by those who want to stand out from the crowd. You can try different shapes and colours to add originality but don’t forget that if you do not look good wearing, say, rectangular glasses, they will hardly make you look better when they are oversized
