Hopefully, you know the benefits wearing sunglasses has for your eye health, but of course we want to look great with our functional accessories too, right? Just like our body shapes, our face shapes differ. What looks great on you, may not work for your friend.
I know it can be overwhelming to go sunglass shopping. A store filled with racks and racks of sunglasses is daunting for sure. How do you choose? If you’re in the market for a new pair of sunnies, or just want a guide for knowing what works for your face shape, I’ve come up with a few tips and tricks for doing just that.
Do – Square, Cat eye, anything with strong lines. Why? These frames will add an angled element that’s opposite of your natural facial shape.
Don’t – Circular frames. Why? Since your facial shape is already round, pairing it with more roundness will cause your face to appear fuller than it is.
Do – Circular and Cat eye, anything with rounded edges. Why? Since your facial shape is naturally angled and has strong lines, pairing it with something softer like a rounded frame will balance your facial shape.
Don’t – Square, Angled, anything with strong lines. Why? Your face naturally has strong, distinct lines, so adding to that will often overwhelm your facial shape instead of flattering it.
