Sunglasses are a style statement. When shopping for sunglasses, the shape, fit, and style are important to keep in mind with consideration of your face shape. Unfortunately, not all styles are going to complement the structure of your face because the frame of the glasses are designed to highlight specific features. When shopping for new frames, following this guide will help finding the best style a lot easier.
Selecting a specific style or shape for your face structure is simple. As a general rule, the goal is to look for styles that are the opposite to your face shape. In this case, opposites attract and help to create balance and definition.
If you have round facial features, go for sunglasses that will draw more definition to the structure of your face. Doing this will make your cheeks appear slimmer. Finding sunglasses that are designed with angles will elongate your temples and add more length to your face.
Square face structures are made up with a strong jawline and wide cheekbones.
In this case, rounded frames will be a better fit compared to sunglasses with sharp angles and lines. You are balancing the straight lines with curved edges.
If you have an oval face shape, it is safe to say that the majority of the styles will complement the structure of your face. It is more universal since you are in the center of the element. Play around with different shapes and styles until you find one that complements well.
A lot goes into selecting the right style of sunglasses. Not only the shape but the color and lens as well. Think about your purpose for wearing these frames. Is it solely for protecting your eyes from UV rays or are they the final accessory to complete an outfit? These factors come into play when deciding the final pair.
