Choosing the Right Sunglasses

Summer is here and the one accessory you should have is sunglasses. Your sunglasses can define your strongest features and downplay those which you least like. For this reason, you have to know what the shape of your face is and what looks best for your type. And you do not have to spend a fortune on sunglasses either. You can be chic and stylish and look your best using shades that are, for all intents and purposes, cheap. Here are some suggestions that best fits the different face shapes.

Heart-Shaped Face

If your forehead is wide and your jaw is narrow, then you have a heart-shaped face. To highlight your face’s shape, choose sunglasses or shades that mimic it. Choose shades that have a wider top and a narrower bottom. A pair of sunglasses with this shape will draw attention to the thinnest part of your face. If you are one who is on the look-out for a classic look, then go for sunglasses in black. But if you want to embrace the spirit of fun, then by all means, try fun colors such as pink or floral stunners.





Oval Face

If your cheekbones, forehead and chin are well-balanced, then you have an oval face. And if you have an oval face, you are so lucky. Almost all sunglasses will work for your face. But stay away from those that are too big or too small. The key is to keep everything in the proper scale. Try a medium-sized cat-eye. They flatter your face shape and add drama to your well-proportioned face. Whether you go for a neutral color or a bold shade, they add a touch of glamour to your warm-weather ensembles.





Round Face

If you have a face that is broadest at your cheekbones and your forehead and chin are narrower, then you have a round face. To make your face look thinner, avoid round-shaped lenses. Choose a style that has a straight bridge and oval bottoms, such as aviators which help to give the illusion of length to your face. The vintage-inspired look of aviators shades work because of the flat-top connecting the lenses. They make the face look narrower.





Oblong Face

If your face is significantly longer than it is wide and it is almost rectangular, then you have an oblong face. Stay away from narrow, round-rimmed shades. These will only make your face appear longer. Make sure the frames touch your cheekbones. If they don’t then they are too small for you. Try a wrap-around style or something oversized to create the illusion of a rounder silhouette. But always make sure that extra-large frames always sit on your cheekbones. If they don’t, then they don’t fit.





Square Face

If your forehead, cheekbones and chin are wide, and your jaw line is strong, then you have a square face. To counteract the angular shape of your face, choose lenses that are oval in shape and have no sharp edges. Choose a frame that is wider than the broadest part of your face to soften the square features. Think of the shades that Jacky O would wear; those are the shades that you should be wearing, too.
