Choosing Sunglasses According to Your Face Shape

The key to finding the right pair of sunglasses for your face is balance. First of all, you need to know what the shape of your face is. There are six main facial shapes: round, square, oblong, triangular, diamond and oval. To find the best shape of sunglasses, try to accentuate your features by balancing them out with the shape of the sunglasses.

Oval face
Almost any style works for oval face. Experiment with the latest looks, such as wraparounds or shields. Square shaped frames with gently rounded edges Frame selection: Any frame shape

Round face
Frames should make the face appear longer and thinner. In general, look for frames equal to or slightly wider than the broadest part of the face. Minimize the curves and add definition with soft, angular, rectangular styles or double brow styles. Higher temples will create a longer profile. Sunglasses with brow bars also pull the eye upward, making the face appear longer. Frame selection: Wider frames with angular/ rectangular styles

Diamond face
This face shape has wide or high cheekbones with a narrow forehead and chin. Oval sunglasses will soften the contour of the face, although softly curved square frames will work as well. Make sure the styles are no wider than the top of the cheekbones. Frame selection: Oval, Square

Squared face
This face shape consists of a strong jawline, a broad forehead and wide cheekbones. Reduce the angles with soft, curvy styles that will give the face some definition such as cat-eye styles. The classic ovals also works well for this face shape. Frame selection: Oval or Round, Oval, Cat Eyes

Oblong face
Widen and shorten the face with sunglass styles that do not extend beyond the widest part of the face. Round or square shapes will look great on this face. Frames with short horizontal and long vertical lines also work. Decorative or contrasting temples add width to the face. Frame selection: Round, Square

Triangle-shaped face
This face has a narrow jaw and a wide forehead. Soften the lower portion of the face by accenting the eye area. Styles such as cat-eyes should angle outward at the top corner and be wide enough to balance the jawline. You can also try metal frames with rimless bottom. Frame selection: Frames with a traight top line, Cat-eyes

It is also important to think about the size of your face. If you have a very small face with delicate features, it is probably not a good idea to overpower your face with a dramatically large pair of sunglasses. If you have a larger face with more pronounced features, a tiny pair of sunglasses will look odd and out of proportion. Whatever your face shape, there is a pair of sunglasses out there for you.
