How to choose a pair of sunglasses adapted to the shape of your face?
On the other hand, it is undeniable that some frames are more beautiful than others. If you’re wondering what might work for your face shape, there are a few rules of thumb that can work in your favor.
If you have a heart-shaped face (a broad forehead and cheekbones, a narrow chin)
Avoid: Overly decorated glasses
If you have a rectangular face (a long face with a narrow chin and cheeks)
Try: Oversized wrap styles.
If you have an oval face (forehead, cheekbones and jawline balanced)
Try: Any shape you like, really. You’re in luck.
If you have a square face (a broad forehead and a square jaw)
Try: Round, Oval, Cat’s Eye
Avoid: Clean, geometric shapes.
If you have a round face (it’s full cheekbones; narrow forehead and jawline)
Try: Wide and rectangular frames.
Avoid: Round frames or colored lenses.
In addition to being super stylish, it’s important to wear glasses that protect your eyes.
