Sunglasses and shapes of faces
Sunglasses should always shape the face into an oval. People with an oval-shaped face have the most choices when it comes to buying sunglasses. To choose the right shape of the frames, firstly you need to answer the question; what face shape do you have? Pictures and illustrations on the internet can help you in determining this. Once you discover what face shape you have, choosing the right sunglasses is really easy.
The square face is the most typical face shape for men. Wide cheekbones and a distinctive jaw. Men's sunglasses should “soften” the face. Avoid sharp-edged sunglasses and bold details. Pilots, round or oval frames will suit you best. You could also consider buying wayfarer models.
Oval face is a win. If you have an oval-shaped face, most sunglasses will suit you. Just don't buy the round or oval-shaped sunglasses and you should be fine. Larger sunglasses with bolder frame will look great – try to avoid thin frames. People oval faces can afford to experiment with their shape of sunglasses!
The round face is screaming for squared sunglasses. The round face is dominated by a distinctive forehead and cheekbones. The sunglasses which fit the best are the ones that create contrast. Try to buy sunglasses larger than your face to stand out. The frame should be more subtle. Pilots, rectangular or square frames are the best for you.
The diamond face has a distinct chin and the widest part of the face in the cheekbones. The best sunglasses for this face shape are retro and pilots. Rounded frames are suitable for any diamond shaped face. Avoid rectangular sunglasses and sunglasses that emphasize the lower part of your face.
The heart shape face is a little more difficult to address. A wide forehead and narrow chin. Sunglasses with a lot of details will not suit you-you should be looking for a minimalistic design. Choose the glasses that outline the bottom of the face. Geometric or rectangular sunglasses fit you best. You can also try pilots.
A triangular face , or face in the shape of an inverted triangle, with broader cheekbones that taper around the jaw. Here you need to narrow your face visually. The wayfarer or pilot model can do just that. Round, geometric or square frames will also be suitable.
