State Optical Wells

Size Guide

Seeing the Wells Street Bridge raised and lowered reminds us that Chicago truly is a third coast. The bridge is also a study in harmony. Beyond rising to allow the passage of boats, its double-deck construction allows the flow of L trains above and cars and pedestrians below. Originally built in 1922, it’s a prime example of Chicago architectural innovation. This innovation is echoed in the two-toned acetates in this style, where contrasting colors come together in harmony. Dusk evokes the setting sun, shoreline reminds of the coast, both venom/smoke and charcoal/sepia blend almost seamlessly.

Face Shape Guide
Square face
Round face
Oval face
Heart face

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.
