Finding The Right Pair of Sunglasses?

Hi everyone. Do you often find yourself in great dilemma in terms of finding the right pair of sunglasses to match with the newly bought bikini of yours? If yes, don’t worry as I have some tips to share with you on how to find the right frame style for you. Always remember that the sunglasses size should be in proportion with the face size.

Firstly let’s determine what type of face shape do you have:-

1. Oval Face – almost any type of frame style works for you. Luck you, as you can experiment with the latest looks in town!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Round Face – you should choose frames that make your face look longer and thinner. Look for frames that are equal or slightly wider than the broadest part of your face. Add more definition with soft, angular or rectangular styles. Tried to look for rectangular sunglasses as it will make your face appear longer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Diamond Face – tried to look for oval or square sunglasses as it will soften the contour of your face. People with diamond face tends to have wider and higher cheekbones but with a narrow forehead and chin. Therefore, make sure the styles are no wider than the top of your cheekbones.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Squared Face – the classic oval and round works well for squared face people. It will reduce the strong jawline, broad forehead and the wide cheekbones of yours. You may also tried on sunglasses which have some curvy styles like the cat – eye styles.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Oblong Face – you will look great with round and square frames as it will not extend the widest part of your face. Look for frames which are short horizontal and long verticals to hide those broad areas. Remember avoid decorative temples as it will lead to disaster.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. Triangle Face – seek for metal frames sunglasses with rimless bottom. It will help to balance out the narrow jawline and wide forehead. You may tried the cat – eyes style too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, now that you have determine your face shape, finding the right sunglasses will be easy. Walk down those streets and look glamourous with your new sunglasses now.

Good Luck & Enjoy
