Eyewear has always been a huge player in the fashion industry.

Whether prescription or sunglasses, you need to pick what suits your face shape, style, usage and season as well as the latest trends in eyewear fashion.

When choosing eyewear it’s always a good idea to take your time and try on as many different

styles, shapes and colours as possible. The wonderful team at Lowes and Partners Optometrists are

experts in their field and take away the stress and uncertainty of finding the perfect pair of glasses

for you.

The 2017 Autumn/Winter range has now being released. This range echoes the beautiful colours mother nature has to offer. The cold season tunes into the reds, browns, greens and deep natural tones that surround us for the ultimate natural look.

Marble or tortoiseshell in these tones are highly sought after and complement these trends and the environment perfectly.

This season you will see some previous popular styles along with some new ones, the cat’s eye is still as popular as ever and vintage shapes are flowing in with full force, however the large, loud, heavy, oversized square shapes are now well and truly on their way out.

Keeping these tips in mind you still need to shop for your face shape. Below is a quick crash course

on what style of glasses best suits your face shape:


The Square shape (broad forehead with a strong jaw line) – round or oval are your ‘go

to’ as they will soften your strong, sharp features. Stay away from square and geometric



Heart (broad forehead that extends down to a small chin) – again round and oval shapes

are perfect for your broad forehead and compliment your beautiful high and angled

cheekbones. Keep clear from top heavy styles or decorative designs.


The Oval shape (lightly curved jawline that is a little narrower than the forehead) – The

ultimate ‘anything goes’ shape. The goal for you is to create a contrast to your facial

curves however stay away from small, short and round frames.


Diamond – (wide cheekbones, a narrow forehead and angular jaw lines) – your ‘go to’

frames are oval, rimless or glasses with a strong brow line. This will create balance and

enhance facial features. Keep well away from narrow or thin frames.


That’s all from me (for now) have a wonderful, wild, Winter.
