Picking out the ideal sunglasses for your face shape isn’t as easy as you might think. There are frames that work to set off your killer features, and there are frames that… don’t.
So how do you know which shades are right for you? Luckily our head Frontrow stylist - Steven Luis - is on hand to give you his top tips! Read on to find the perfect pair of sunglasses for your face shape.
First, you’ll need to figure out whether your face is round, oval, heart, or square. We suggest asking a friend. Once you’ve found your face shape, then you can begin picking sunglasses that will complement your features.
- HEART shape face - The narrowest point of a heart-shaped face is at the jawline. Any frames that are wider on the top than they are at the bottom work best.
- ROUND shape face - A round face is widest across the cheekbones and more narrow at the forehead and jawline. Oversized, rectangular and angular frames set off the roundness.
- OVAL shape face - An oval face is longer than it is wide and is the most versatile face shape, which means you can pull off round or square frames. Keep proportion in mind, and try not to go too big or too small for your face.
- SQUARE shape face - This face has a strong jaw, wide forehead and wide cheekbones. To soften these features, choose sunnies with soft lines or rimless edges
