Whenever I’ve gone to buy new sunglasses, I’ve never really thought about the perfect pair according to my face shape. Instead, I’ll stand in front of the sunglasses stand for as long as it takes, trying on different sunglasses until I find the right ones. Sometimes this method doesn’t always work.
Then, I came across a method whereby you select sunglasses based on your face shape. Even better, I attached it to fruits and vegetables to it’s easier to remember!
So, just for you (and me) I thought I’d put together a bit of a fun guide to show you what I mean and so you can keep it in mind on your next shop for sunglasses. I know I’ll be remembering it when I’m shopping in the USA next week!
Cat-eye frames will help to balance out a heart-shaped face and will also help to accentuate it.
Oversized frames offset the roundness of a round face. People with a round face can also try wayfarer and cat-eye sunglasses.
Aviator sunglasses work well for people with a rectangular shaped face because the tear-drop shape helps accentuate cheek and jaw bones. Rectangular faces also suit oversized frames but just make sure they’re not too large or too small.
Wayfarers have soft lines and help to ease the prominent angles of a square face.
Oval shaped face = anything!
Congratulations! If you have been blessed with an oval shaped face, you will pretty much suit any trendy sunglasses, even the ‘lips’ sunglasses at the bottom!
What’s your face shape and your sunglasses of choice?
