Pick The Right Shades For Your Shape
Choosing sunglasses that frame your face rather than what’s currently trending can make the difference between looking hot or not!
Golden rule for everyone: Choose styles that are the opposite of your face shape!
Heart-Shaped Face: Wide forehead and cheekbones, narrow chin
Ray Ban Aviator & Ray Ban Wooden Wayfarers
Goal: You want to broaden the appearance of the jaw line and minimise the width of your forehead. To balance the proportions of your face, go with shades that are wider at the bottom, like aviators, or fuller all around like oversized, rounded Jackie O sunglasses.
Oblong Face: Long face, narrow chin and cheeks
Anna Sui Sunglasses & Diane von Furstenberg Alexandra
Goal: Go for wide frames, such as oversized round sunglasses that create the illusion of having a shorter and wider face. Stay away from narrow or small frames! They only emphasise the length.
Oval Face: Balanced forehead, cheekbones and jaw
Heart Metal Sunglasses & Miu Miu Cat Eye Sunglasses
Goal: You’re lucky – any shape works on you!
Square Face: Broad forehead, square jawline, wide chin and cheekbones
Vintage Chloe Classic Round Frame Sunglasses & Vintage Inspired Round Cat Eye Sunglasses
Goal: Soften and balance a strong jawline. Look for round, oval or curved frames, which will contrast your square face and provide balance.
Round Face: Full cheekbones, narrow forehead and jaw
Dior Audacieuse Metal Cat Eye Sunglasses & Prada Tortoise Shell Cat Eye Sunglasses
Goal: You want to counteract the fullness of the face. Wide frames will balance the fullness and rectangle and square-shaped sunglasses add angles to your round face.
