Ever fallen in love with a pair of sunglasses, only to try them on and discover you look like a bug-eyed insect? Here’s how to pick the right frames for your face shape.
SUNGLASSES FOR ROUND FACES
If you have full cheeks, a rounded chin and your face is as wide as it is long, you’re going to want to try a wider shape of glasses. Rectangular frames can help elongate your face – so the wayfarer shape is a great bet. Look for shades that have nose pads to keep the glasses off your cheeks. You’ll find this more comfortable, and glasses that make a feature of the bridge can make your eyes look farther apart.
SUNGLASSES FOR SQUARE FACES
Contrast a face with a strong jawline and wider forehead with rounded or oval glasses. Thinner, daintier frames are also a good idea. John Lennon-style round specs are at the height of fashion and will look great on you, as will aviators and shield shapes.
SUNGLASSES FOR OVAL FACES
The broad cheekbones and narrow chin and forehead of an oval face shape is the perfect opportunity to go with a bold, funky style – and why not splash out and try a fun colour too? You’ll have fun rocking aviators, wayfarers or the over-sized look.
SUNGLASSES FOR HEART FACES
Wearing wider frames will help to bring balance to a heart-shaped face, so cat eyes and sports glasses will always look great on you. You can also try the rimless style for a lighter, classic look.
