Choosing sunglasses can be a tough decision, and one of the most common questions people ask is how to find the best sunglasses for your face. Here are some quick tips for identifying the ideal sunglasses for your face.
When you pull your hair back, you should be able to look at the outline of your face and tell what shape face you have. Take a step back analyse the shape of your face – it could be mostly round, heart shaped oval or square among others.
Choosing Sunglasses To Suit Your Face
The next step is to find sunglasses to suit. A classic heart shape face will mean a wide forehead and high cheekbones that draw down to a small narrow jaw line. Try on a mixture of angular, aviators and classic wide-frame sunglasses.
A round shape means your face is full and is almost as wide as it is long. If you have a round face, the best sunglasses to suit you will be those which have thicker frames and are wide around the temples. Try angular sunglasses with a wide black frame to elongate your face and not bring so much emphasis to the roundness.
If you have an oval shape face, the length of your face is about one and a quarter times its width. Your chin will be slightly narrower than your forehead and you will most likely have high cheekbones. If you have an oval shape face, try to choose sunglasses that are as wide as the largest part of your face to maintain balance and avoid styles that may have angular shapes and oversized frames.
The best sunglasses for an oval face are likely to have a more square shape to them, but it's all about balance so choose frames that are in proportion to the rest of your face. If you have a long oval face you might like to try thick oval shape frames, but if your face is relatively small stick to thin frames with more of a square shape to them.
If you have square shaped face, you will have an angular jaw line and a wide chin and forehead. Aviators look great on square shape faces, and oval frames will create curve to your square face while elongating.
You are probably best to avoid square or rectangular frames as they will only focus more on the angles of your face and may make your head seem shorter in proportions.
