Hey my beautiful ladies! Being in style and going with the current fashion trends is awesome, but sometimes it’s better to stick with what actually works for you and what will make you look your best. So, should you go with round sunglasses for this summer? It all depends on your face shape. So how do you know which ones are right for you? First of all, you’ll need to figure out whether your face is round, oval, heart, or square. Our easy-to-use guide will help you find the right fit.
Like you can see in the picture there are four basic face shapes: round (circle), square, heart, and oval. Once you’ve determined your face shape, read on below to learn more about which glasses will look best on you.
Heart: Heart-shaped faces, sometimes called triangle, are widest at the temples and narrowest at the chin. When choosing sunglasses for heart-shaped faces, the goal should be to minimize the width of the top of the face and to broaden the chin. Heart faces should avoid frames that could exaggerate the width of the forehead or the narrowness of the chin. Cat-eye styles or glasses that feature rounded edges are ideal for giving the wearer a more balanced look.
Round: Round faces are just what they sound like: Circular, full, and without strong lines and angles. The ideal eyewear should lack curved features while emphasizing sharp angular lines that will help elongate your face and make it look thinner and sharper. This face group may benefit from high-on-the-temple, colorful frames as well. Rectangle, square, wrap and shield are the keys to round-faced sunglasses success.
Square: Square faces typically have strong jawlines and facial features defined by distinct angles. When choosing sunglasses for square-shaped faces, the goal should be to lengthen and soften the face’s natural angularity and to avoid frames that could exaggerate the sharpness of facial features. By adding curving lines, you can make a square face appear thinner and softer. Examples of styles that would work well for this face are aviators, butterflies, or any frame style that favors oval or circular curves. Center or top set temples are the way to go with a square face.
Oval: Oval faces are thought to have the most balanced proportions and, thus, the ideal shape. People with oval faces should consider themselves lucky, as they will look good in almost any pair of glasses. Just don’t get huge frames that block out those pretty symmetrical features; choose sunglasses that cover the face from the eyebrows to the cheekbones.
Now that you know how to find your face shape, and you know which style work best for you it’s time to start shopping for your perfect shades. And we know just where you can find ’em!
