Sunglasses aren’t just a way to block the sun, but also a fashion accessory. You should treat your sunglasses as an item of clothing that is tailored for your body. Finding the right style and size for your face shape can help enhance your features. I am going to talk you through finding your face shape as well as discussing the best style of sunglasses for your face.
Your face is the widest from cheek to cheek and then narrows slightly at forehead and jaw. Your chin is typically in line with your jaw. When it comes to sunglasses, go for square or round frames as they will add definition to your face. The angular lines balance the roundness of your face. Avoid soft lines and rounded edges. When shopping look for sharp edges or all 4 corners with a thinner frame.
The widest point of your face is your forehead and gets narrower at the jawline. Your chin might extend below your jaw line. Unlike other face shapes, the heart shape faces look best with heart shape frames. Think aviators and cat eye frames. Since they are wider at the top and narrower at the bottom they will highlight your best features. You will still want to balance out proportions though. For smaller features choose a smaller and thinner frame. For more striking features go for a thicker or larger frame.
Your jaw, cheeks and forehead are all the same width. You also might have a sharp jawline. Round, rimless sunglasses will balance out the sharp jawlines and help soften your face shape.
Your face is longer than its width. Basically your forehead to chin is longer than the length for ear to ear. For sunglasses you’ll want round with an oversized frame unlike the shape for square faces. Since round sunglasses are typically wider, it will help balance out the length. Oversized frames are super flattering and help give the illusion of more width between cheekbones.
I hope you found this guide super helpful.
