Walking down Hayes Drive into Jackson Park is like a living history lesson, especially as you approach The Republic, a replica of the golden statue that welcomed all to the 1893 World’s Fair. Though little of the original Columbian Exposition remains, this Golden Lady implores us to remember the past. So too does this style echo history with its classic rectangular shape, reminding us that some things withstand the passage of time. Timeless colors keep the look relevant- lustrous black, dimensional slate café, moody tiger eye, and smoke.
A square face has defined angles and balanced lines along the forehead, chin and cheeks. An oval or round frame will complement these strong features and soften them.
The width and height of a round face will be roughly similar. In order to elongate and play down the fullness of the cheeks, select a frame with strong angles and straight lines.
An oval face is defined by higher cheekbones and a chin that is narrower than the forehead. Frames that sweep upward complement the cheekbones and slim down the jawline.
A heart-shaped face has a long, pointed jawline, with the chin being the smallest feature. Over-sized frames complement this shape and balance out the forehead and narrow chin.
