While glamour may not be the first word you associate with Chicago, walking through the lobby of the Palmer House Hotel on Monroe Street is like traveling back to the Gilded Age. Originally built as a wedding gift to Mr. Palmer’s socialite bride, the building breathes romance and luxury. It’s these sentiments that inspired the design of our most glamorous style. Sophisticated color combinations modernize the look further, choose from rich amber tortoise with ash, warm tortoise with raspberry, smooth black over tarragon, or crisp navy over aqua and tortoise.
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.
