What Style Sunglasses Is Best For You?
The shape of your face doesn't necessarily match that style of sunglasses. For instance if you have a round shaped face it does not mean that a round style of sunglasses if what will look best on you.
So first take a look at yourself in the mirror or ask a friend what they think the shape of your face is. Consider these things in determining your face shape.
Round Face Shape
A round face has noticeable curves and less defined angles. You would want to choose sunglasses that lack curved features while emphasizing sharp angular lines that will help elongate your face and make it look thinner.
Suggested sunglass shapes: Rectangle, Square or Wrap
Square Face Shape
A square shaped face is generally about the same length and width across the face. A person with a face that is square shaped will generally have a broad forehead and a strong jaw line. A frame with round or oval shaped lenses will help round out the sharpness of their square features to give a more balanced look.
Suggested sunglass shapes: Round, Aviators
Oval Face Shape
Features of an oval face are gently rounded, fairly even features and pretty much any sunglasses shape will work well for a person with an oval shaped face. Just don't get huge frames that distract or cover up those pretty symmetrical features. Sunglasses that cover the face from the eyebrows to the cheekbones is a good choice.
Suggested sunglass shapes: All except oversized.
Oblong Face Shape
This type face shape is long and narrow with few angles. Larger wayfarer or rectangular sunglasses with thick frames add width to a long face.
Suggested sunglass shapes: Wrap around, Square, Wayfarer and Rectangle
Diamond Shape Face
A narrow jawline and forehead with the cheekbones as the widest part of the face characterizes a diamond shaped face. Diamond faces should use frames that feature gentle curves and should not be wider than the wearer's cheekbones.
Suggested sunglass shapes: Oval
Heart Shape Face
A heart-shaped face is widest at the temples and narrowest at the chin. Sunglasses that feature wide lower edges with no straight lines along the top are especially good for the person with a heart shaped face. This type sunglasses will shift attention downward and elongate the face.
Suggested sunglass shapes: Aviator and rimless
After you have determined the style sunglass that is best for you then you just have to select the brand and color you like best.
