Some of us might carefully match it to our outfit, while others might just borrow their friend’s pair right before a click. What we can all agree on is that sunglasses have become the go-to style staple that most of our posts are incomplete without. However, different styles of sunglasses suit different face shapes.
Here’s how you can understand your face shape and pick the perfect style of sunglasses.
Square Frames For Triangle-Shaped Face
If your forehead is wider than your chin and narrows down with relatively straight lines, the shape of your face is that of an inverted triangle. To complement your face shape, it is best to go for frames that are also wider at the top than at the bottom.
Wayfarer For Diamond-Shaped Face
If you have pronounced cheekbones, a well-defined jawline and if the length and breadth of your face are similar, you have a diamond-shaped face. While most styles suit you, you should choose a pair based on your facial proportions. Avoid choosing frames that are wider than your cheekbones as they will over-emphasise your cheekbones, making your chin and forehead appear smaller than they are. You can choose between classic Ray Ban Sunglasses or Fastrack’s Wayfarer Sunglasses.
Aviators For Square-Shaped Face
You have a square-shaped face if the length and breadth of your face are identical and you have a sharp jawline. To soften the angles of your face, it is best to choose frames that have rounded edges. It’s also best to pick lighter frames over darker ones as they will also soften the edges of your face.
Angular Frames For Round-Shaped Face
If you have a round-shaped face, you need to find a pair of sunglasses that add some definition to your face. While you should avoid circular frames, you can experiment with angular aviators or square/rectangular frames with sharp edges, Aviators and angular shapes suit you best.
Square Frames For Heart-Shaped Face
If your forehead is wider than the chin and face is a slightly rounded at the jawline, you have a heart-shaped face. Avoid sunglasses that are teardrop-shaped or oversized, but choose square frames with sharp corners to complement your face shape. Choose from the square shaped range for a stylish look.
Cat Eyes For Oval-Shaped Face
If you have a long face, wide forehead and rounded jaw and cheekbones, then you have an oval-shaped face. You are luckier than the others because oval-shaped faces are the easiest to choose sunglasses for. While you can choose from a wide range of styles, including geometric, angular and rounded styles, just ensure that the frames aren’t wider than your face. All styles suit you, from Cat Eye Sunglasses for Women.
