Are you one of the many people who cannot exit your home without a significant fashion accessory? Namely sunglasses. The perfect trendy sunglasses benefit your face and outfit in the same way bracelets and bangles do. The number of designs and colors available is staggering..and a bit confusing. Choosing the perfect sunglasses requires careful thought and consideration. However, while some sunglasses appear to look good in the store, maybe it is the lighting or mirror; they fail to complement your best facile features at your home mirror.
My advice- choose based on your face shape! You cannot go wrong!
Base your choice on three points
1. The frame and face shape should contrast each other.
2. Notice the width and length of your face shape.
3. Eyewear should accentuate your best features like a pert nose.
There is a variety of face shapes, differing in angles and length. Identify the category your face is close to and then make a sunglasses selection. The right sunglasses will change your profile, alleviating your allure and trendiness to that of a celebrity.
1. Round Face Shape
The most common face shape, the width and length are of the same proportions. Rounded chin, few angles and full blooming cheeks lend to a roundish shape.
Angular and geometric frames are in cohesion with this shape. They sharpen the face’s features so they are clearly defined.
Alternatively, rectangular and horizontal styles lend a longer and thinner shadow to the face, especially the kind of glasses with temples that connect at the top.
Upswept frames draw attention to the top half of the face, lending you a stronger personality.
Avoid small, dis-proportioned frames.
Embellishments at the edges are not favorable.
Round and large frames are also not good for improving your face length or roundish contours.
2. Oval Face Shape
Most sunglasses will work on oval faces, which have balanced proportions and prominent cheekbones on a soft rounded structure. The forehead is a little wider than the slightly curved jaw.
Experiment with small, geometric styles; shallow but not too narrow.
Eyeglass frames with a lot of depth such as enlarged polarized shades or even walnut-shaped frames will do justice to your attire.
You can have some fun with the different kinds of glasses obtainable.
Let your own comfort level and observations be the judge of what looks good as choosing lovely sunglasses for an oval face is not that hard.
3. Square Face Shape
This face shape is distinguished by its edges; angular structure, square chin, deep forehead and broad cheekbones. The width and length of the face scale is of the same proportions.
The best choice in sunglasses is one that reduces your edges.
Oval and round shaped glasses are preferred as they reduce angles, add length to the square shape and soften the jaw line.
Butterfly frames produce the same effect as do glasses with temples that are either set in the center or the wires are connected at the crest of the frame.
Thin, angular or square glass frames will only worsen the edges on a squared face.
The ones with color accent on the bottom rim or low-set temples are not advised, they tend to emphasis the strong jaw line.
4. Diamond Face Shape
The profile of this face shape is defined by a narrow eye cross section and a small chin. Such people are gifted with high, dramatic cheekbones. It is one of the rarest face shapes. Certain sunglasses are perfectly suited to a diamond-shaped facile as they highlight the eyes and soften the cheekbones
Frames shine in chic detailing on diamond-shaped faces, more so if the frame is narrower than the peaks of your cheekbones.
Upswept styles such as the famous cat-shaped eyeglasses many celebrities are sporting underlines the blooming cheeks.
Other stylish sunglasses have rimless frames to highlight the cheekbones or maybe a pair with distinctive brow lines will be better.
Glam out in the latest oval shaped or an interesting curvaceously square sunglasses to maintain the balance of your elegant features.
Narrow frames enhance the thinness of the eye line. 5. Oblong Face Shape
The oblong shape has more length than its width. A longish nose is matched by long straight cheek lines and a tall forehead.
The unevenness of this face’s features elucidates the importance of choosing a pair of flattering sunglasses.
Frames with more depth than width such as round or squared eyewear, supported by decorative or contrasting temples will impose balance onto an oblong face.
Additionally, these kind of tall frames appear to shorten the facial construct while broad frames with a noticeable top rim heighten the face’s breadth.
Sunglasses with a low bridge are recommended as they appear to shorten the nose.
Rectangular and small frames are must not- haves.
Short frames punctuate the excess length of the oblong face
6. Triangle Face Shape
The triangular face shape is divided into two; Base-Down Triangle and Base-Up Triangle.
The Base-Down Triangle face shape is distinguished by a narrow forehead and eye section, broad cheeks and a flat jaw line.
The Base-Up Triangle face shape has an expansive top half tapering to a small lower segment.
Color and detailing on the top half of the frames to extend the horizontal appearance of the face and invite importance.
Cat-eyed sunglasses will be just as beneficial for base-down triangle face shape.
Also, choose from semi-rimless frames that stress the higher section of the triangular face. Top-heavy sunglasses or oval shaped to harmonize the breadth of the jaw.
Bottom frames that angle inwards or bold styles will act as the balance your face needs.
To minimize the span of the top half of the face, go for wide-bottomed frames or rimless styles.
Light colors and materials for your sunglasses give an airy, buoyant effect, perfect for base-up triangle face shape.
Low-set temples only emphasize the wide jaw.
Small narrow, out-of proportion frames will further distort your unsymmetrical features.
7. Heart Face Shape
This face shape has a wide forehead, tapering to a small, compact jaw. Many different styles will illuminate its angular and rounded features.
The best kinds of frames are curvilinear, bottom-heavy frames. Since their bottom is comparatively wider than their top, such sunglasses will even out your large forehead and narrow chin.
Low-set temples will draw attention at an angle so focus will be on the lower half of your face.
Narrow, rounded sunglasses soften the wide forehead.
Other symmetrical shapes are square, round and slender to beautify your face
Low-set sides will attract eyes to your beautiful cheek bones and petite jaw line.
Don’t trust sunglasses that are too wide at their peaks, the face shape is usually the one reflected.
What’s more, sunglasses infused with decorative frames, colorful lining, and bright temples lay too much emphasis on the large upper face.
Mainly, don’t touch top heavy sunglasses.
