Your Best Shades

Sunglasses are one of my favorite accessories and they are the definition of functional fashion. Not only do they protect your eyes from the sun’s harsh rays, they are a chic way to complete your look. The right pair of sunglasses can exude confidence, but first it is important to find the pair that suits your face shape. Here are some quick tips to figure out what you should be looking for in your perfect sunglasses this summer!

#1) Square Face Shape 

– Strong, angular jawline.

– Squared hairline.



Do: Oval & Round Frames

Butterfly Frames

Aviator Frames

Don’t: Square Shape Frames



#2) Oval Faces

-Slightly narrower at jawline than temples.

-Gently rounded hairline.



Do: Most Frames work with this shape


(Oval, Round, Square)

Don’t: Frames that are too large can overpower your face



#3) Round Faces:

– Face is as round as it is wide.
– Rounded jawline and hairline.
– Widest point of face are cheeks and ears.



Do: Angular frames that sharpen curves of your face

Wide, rectangular frames

Upswept frames

Don’t: Frames that are too small or short will look disproportionate



 #4) Heart Faces:

– Wider at temples and hairline.

– Narrow, delicate chin.



Do:  Narrow, round frames

Frames that are wider at the bottom

Don’t: Frames that are wider at the top

Frames with decorative details/embellished at the temple will pull attention away from chin


 #5) Oblong/Rectangular Faces:

– Long, slender face.

– Sometimes have narrow chin or high forehead.



Do: Broad Frames

Frames with decorative details at the temple

Oversized or Chunky Frames (think Jackie O style)

Don’t: Frames that are too small or short will look disproportionate


 #6) Diamond Faces:

– This shape is a cross between heart and oval.
– Widest at cheekbones.
– Equally narrow at forehead and jawline.



Do: Cat eye frames that draw attention to cheekbones

Oval frames


Don’t: Narrow frames
