Summer will be arriving in just four days over here...so I started my hunt for a brand new pair of sunglasses.
I don't know about most people, but I still find myself questioning what is the right sunglasses for my face shape. I decided to look it up, and here is some information that I put together for you. Hopefully it will come in handy for those that are semi-confused like myself.
The 4 Basic Face Shapes: Round, Heart, Square, and Oval.
Round-Shaped Face should look for angular frames that will draw away from the roundness of the face.
What Works: square, rectangular and glasses with high temples.
What to Avoid: anything round.
Heart-Shaped Face should look for frames that will draw away from the wide temple and pointed chin.
What Works: bottom heavy frames, round or cat-eye frames, delicate frames such as aviators or other types of wire frames, and glasses with low temples.
What to Avoid: styles with a hard straight line across the top, and pointed bottoms.
Square-Shaped Face should look for frames that will soften the angles and make the face look longer.
What Works: oval, curved, or round frames with long lenses.
What to Avoid: square, rectangle, or anything with hard angles.
Oval-Shaped Face is the luckiest of the bunch. Most styles should work, as long as the frames are in proportion to your face and features. So go ahead, and have fun trying on different frames.
If you don't fall under any of these face shape, there's no need to worry. Go explore and have fun trying on as many frames as you want, until you find the right one. Shopping for sunglasses should always be fun! :)
Here are some sunglasses worth checking out, in case you're also looking for something special...or just curious about these sunglasses.
