It’s officially sunglass season, and with the sheer volume of options available it can be hard to sift through the trends and find which style is the right fit for you. One of the easiest ways to choose the right pair of shades is by using your face shape as a guide. Below find the best frames for the four most common face shapes to purchase now:
Most round face shapes have the same width across the forehead, cheekbones and jawline, usually with full, soft features; think rounded lines instead of pointed angles. Geometrical sunglass shapes like wayfarers and horizontal frames best suit curved faces.
Most square face shapes have the same width across the forehead, cheekbones and jawline, usually with sharp, angular features. Curved frames like aviators, oval and wrap sunglasses work best for square face shapes as they balance out sharper features.
Most heart face shapes are commonly known as an inverted triangle, wider at the top across the forehead with narrow, pointy chins. Light colored frames, semi-rimless and cat-eye sunglasses works best for heart shapes to elongate the widest part of the face.
Most oval face shapes have more length from the hairline to the bottom of the chin and shorter widths across the cheekbones, usually with longer forehead and chin areas. Oval faces tend to be able to pull off any sunglass shape; opt for an on trend pair of embellished or over-sized frames.
