Bose Frames Style Guide

The best shape for your face. The best performance for your lifestyle. The best sound for audio sunglasses.

Outlines of Bose Frames Alto, Soprano, Tempo, Tenor, and Rondo

Fashion meets function

Before purchasing glasses or sunglasses — or in this case Bluetooth® sunglasses with Bose Open Ear Audio™ technology, you want to know they’ll look good on you. And it starts with face shape. This style guide will help you determine your face shape, then your perfect pair of Bose Frames. With styles ranging from retro chic to modern classic, let’s find your fit and make a statement.

What face shape are you?

Much like mastering liquid eyeliner, finding your face shape isn’t as easy as it looks. But some fashion do’s (and don’ts) depend on this small, but crucial, piece of information. So, let’s get started. There are three important factors when determining face shape: the widest part of your face, the length of your face, and your jaw line. Your hairstyle, makeup, and brows will thank you later. But for now, let’s talk eyewear.
