Choosing the right sunglasses that suit’s your face shape can transform your whole look. First determine the shape of your face and then follow the below tips to choose the right Designer cool sunglasses.
The Square Face – the Square facial shape is noted for its broad features that end in a square, strong and prominent jaw line. The square face requires curved frames, like round and oval frames that would mute the natural angularity of the facial features. The sides should be attached at the top of the frame to make the curve of the lenses visible.
The Round Face – the Round or the all-round symmetrical face is characterized by shorter length and a broad forehead. The roundness of the face is accentuated by fuller cheeks, often with dimples, and a naturally curved jaw line. The frames to go for would be the more angular frames that cut your face in a certain straight angle, drawing attention to the upper part of the face. Squares, top-heavy trapezoids and upswept shades are best for round faces, while shapes that accentuate the roundness are not. So smaller curved frames and large bee-eyed frames are definitely out!
The Oval Face – the Oval or the ‘almond’ shape is symmetrical and well-balanced, and can carry a lot of styles. If you have an oval face, chances are that you’ll have high cheekbones, a delicately tapering jaw line and a lot of chances to go for an adventurous look! The best frames for oval faces are smaller, angular frames, while anything that hurts your bridge or impedes full vision is definitely out.
The Long Face – High Cheekbones, deep-set forehead and yet a rounded jaw line, those are the characteristics of a long face. The best frames to go would be wider frames that accentuate the natural width of the face, and coloured frames would also go well. Do look at square frames that have a pronounced upper-line.
The Heart-shaped Face – the Heart-shaped face is characterized by wider forehead and a tapered chin. Smaller, thinner frames with accentuated lower parts would suit your face just fine, while top-heavy frames should be avoided.
The Triangular Face – Much like the square face, the triangular face has an accentuated jaw line. Any heavy frame style that adds volume and definition to the upper, narrower part of your forehead would be a good match, while slender frames are not really suited.
