Sunglasses: Finding the best Fit for your Face

When shopping for sunglasses, the key factor should be their shape. That shape, should also be one that flatters your face. Because everyone’s face is different, certain frames will look better on you than others. Yes, we want to wear things that we like, but we should also want those things to look nice as well. Below is a guideline you might find useful when shopping for your next pair of shades.

The Shape: Heart, Reese Witherspoon
Since heart shaped faces feature a wider forehead and cheekbones with a slimmer jawline and chin, choosing cat-eye or round frames will accent the angles of your face.

The Best Fit:
Cat-eye or rounded
The Shape: Oval, Eva Mendes
Because the angles of an oval face are symmetrical: equal forehead, cheekbones and chin- you will look good in any style. Lucky you!

The Best Fit:
Any shape
The Shape: Square, Jessica Simpson
Square shaped faces include a wider forehead with a squarer jaw line. Because of these features, any rounded frame is most flattering on you. Stay away from rectangular or square frames as they can make your face appear wider.

The Best Fit:
Rounded frames
The Shape: Round, Halle Berry
Round faces have narrow foreheads and jawlines with fuller cheekbones. To compliment the roundness of your face, you’ll want to stick with over sized rectangular frames and avoid anything round.

The Best Fit:
Over sized rectangular frames

What's your face shape and best fit?

  1. Sunglasses or sun glasses are a visual aid, variously termed spectacles or glasses, which feature lenses that are colored or darkened to prevent strong light from reaching the eyes. Many people find direct sunlight too bright to be comfortable, especially when reading from paper in direct sunlight.
