Now that the sun is beginning to show its face and it is really starting to feel like spring, we thought that we would put together some top tips to help you find sunglasses that compliment your face shape.
Which sunglasses suit which face shape?
The first step is to decide which shaped face you have. Pull your hair back off your face and have a good look in the mirror.
A heart shaped face is characterised by a broader forehead with a narrower jaw and chin. The frames that suit you best feature a wider top than bottom so anything like a cat eye style will look great. Rounded edges will also help to balance out your features.
Square shaped faces tend to have a broad forehead, wide cheekbones and quite a square, angular jaw line. To soften your features you could go for rounded frames. Retro style frames look good and you can even experiment with different coloured lenses.
A round face shape is full of curves which compliment geometric style frames. Consider trying oversized sunglasses with rectangular or angled frames.
This face shape tends to be long and narrow and it looks great with oversized frames. Go for a large wayfarer style, square or rectangular sunglasses with thick frames which will add a bit of width to your face.
A diamond shaped face is characterised by wide cheekbones, a narrow forehead and a narrow jaw. Frames with a slight curve look fab so go for an oval style. Ideally you don’t want the frames to be wider than your cheekbones so consider trying rimless.
Oval shaped faces feature gentle curves and they are the luckiest face shape as pretty much any style frame will suit them. Just avoid anything too oversized as these may swamp your features.
