Oversized Glasses: Big Is Beautiful

Oversized frames have been turning heads for decades. They exude a Hollywood-star nonchalance, are effortless to wear, and always in style.
 
The tough part is choosing which oversized glasses you want to rock. Glamorous oversized sunglasses? Or oversized vintage reading glasses? At Mouqy, the choice is yours.
 

What are oversized glasses?

Oversized glasses are recognizable a mile off. With their bigger-than-expected lenses and frames, they’re a popular fashion statement that can be pulled off by both men and women. When turned into sunglasses, the larger lenses also have a functional use of providing more protection for the eyes against damaging UV light.
 

How to do oversized glasses the right way

Many people get confused when they hear ‘oversized glasses’ and think it just means wearing glasses that are slightly too big for your face. That’s a big no-no!
 
Just like all regular glasses, it’s important to make sure that oversized frames comfortably fit your face in all the right places. Also, ‘oversized’ can mean very different things to folks with narrower faces and folks with wider faces!
 
You want to make sure that the glasses sit at the right level of your face and don’t constantly keep slipping down – that’s never much fun for anyone.
 
To make sure they fit properly, pay special attention to the bridge measurement of the frames. Making sure this part fits well will stop your glasses from slipping down and irritating your cheeks. This is especially important with oversized glasses because the larger frames usually weigh a little more.
 

How big is too big?

We love the oversized look, but it is possible to go too big. You don’t want your oversized glasses to overwhelm your face, especially if you have smaller facial features. And you definitely don’t want that bug-eyed look!
 
Try to aim for oversized frames that aren’t significantly wider than your face. That can make your head look smaller.
 
Oversized glasses tend to look best when your eyebrows peek through over the top (though this isn’t always possible for all faces). You ideally want your eyes positioned at the horizontal center and vertical top third of your lens.
 

How do you choose the best oversized glasses?

Oversized glasses are loved in every frame shape, but there are ways that you can find the most flattering form for you. The best place to start is by looking at the shape of your very own face. You always want glasses that are able to bring balance and symmetry to your features.
 
For example, if you have an angular face shape, like a square or diamond face, then you should consider oversized glasses in a rounded frame. Oversized round glasses are retro and classic.
 
Alternatively, more curved face shapes like heart-shape or round faces usually benefit from frames that have lines. We love a pair of oversized square frames that are hipster in all the good ways!

As for the color of your oversized glasses – you can have lots of fun experimenting with bright reds and greens, or go for something more muted and sleek. Read our guide on choosing your frame color.
