Finding sunglasses to suit your face shape
Stylish sunglasses are the ultimate accessories to be seen in. From over-sized and glamorous to aviator and understated-chic, everyone needs a pair of funky shades. To help you find the ideal pair we have put together a useful guide so that you can find a style to suit.
Different sunglasses for different shaped faces
Round face - If you have a round face then opt for wide, square or rectangular frames as this will help to elongate your face. If you have a large face then you can wear oversized sunglasses.
Heart shaped face - Avoid wide oversized sunglasses, as these styles will make your chin look pointy. However if the styles are not too wide you can get away with it. Aviator sunglasses suit this shape of face.
Oval face - If you have a small shaped face then anything goes. From smaller to wider frames, oversized to more slender your shape of face can carry off just about any style. However, avoid thick frames.
Small face - Avoid oversized, big glasses that could take over your face. You need accentuate your features so opt for rimless styles that look great on smaller shaped faces.
Long face - Add width to this shape of face and opt for a wide rectangular frame. This will make your face look rounder.
Square face - Square shaped faces best suit rounded sunglasses. Avoid sharp angled frames as this accentuates the jaw.
Triangular face - Triangular shaped face will have a wide forehead, but small chin and rimless sunglasses can really work well and look good. You may wish to select frames that are winder at the bottom.
Find a colour to suit your face is just as important as finding the right size and shape.
Rimless sunglasses and aviators suit most face shapes and are a safe bet if you are not too sure which style suits.
A perfect pair of sunglasses is when the frame follows the line of your eyebrow and you should never be able to see your eyebrow above the frame.
The edge of the frame should be slightly wider than the widest part of your face but make sure it is not too wide.
