The Sunglasses Guide For All Seasons

Sunglasses are a small accessory, but they make a big impact both in a fashion sense and in the way they can change your face, your style and your mood.

A great pair of sunglasses is a must, but the challenge lies in finding the right pair for you. With this in mind, we can offer some help and advice to refresh your look, the sunglasses market has exploded this year, so take advantage of what’s available right now.

Starting with a face shape guide lets look at a perfect pair of glasses for a round face, what is a circular shaped face?

Round Face Shape

A round face has curves and is as it sounds round in shape, no defined angles. The best glasses for this type of face is the opposite, so sharp angular lines to make your face look thinner, avoiding circular glasses at all costs. Consider frames that sit high on the temple and have a square, rectangle or wrap-around style.

Square Face Shape 

A square face has the same length and width across the face with a broad forehead and strong jawline. Without doubt, the best glasses for a square face are round or oval-shaped sunglasses, so aviators or the round John Lenon style are the best for square-shaped faces.

Oval Face Shape 

If you have an oval face your very lucky because all glasses will suit you; Just don’t choose huge frames that cover your face, especially if you have symmetrical features. Choose sunglasses that cover the face from the eyebrows to the cheekbones only.

Diamond Face Shape

A diamond face has a narrow jawline and forehead; the cheekbones are the fullest part on the face. The best shape for a diamond face is a gentle curve or a rimless style and don’t go past the cheekbones with a wide style frame or wrap-effect glasses.

Heart Face Shape

Also called triangle shape, this face is broad at the temples and narrow across the chin. When choosing the right sunglasses, you need a style that will feature a full lower edge with no straight lines across the top. Straight lines accentuate the narrow chin and no-one wants that do they?

The best glasses for this shape face are cats eyeglasses or aviators and shield style and rimless sunglasses.
