Nothing completes an outfit quite like eyewear. Sunglasses are the ultimate part of your summer uniform, and this season is full of attention-grabbing pieces for the sunniest days. But not only should the perfect pair of sunnies embrace and open up your personality, but they should undoubtedly also flatter your face shape. So check out the basic fit rules and the season’s coolest styles to be sunshine-ready.
If you have a rounded oval face, you’re lucky as you can wear whatever you want. Therefore, you can be adventurous and pick out some really cool, trending novelties such as sci-fi sunnies. Think futuristic frames and make sure they’re metal. However, do keep in mind that rectangular and geometric shapes will look better than round ones, so we suggest going for the timeless classics – Wayfarers. Candice Swanepoel, Megan Fox and Jessica Alba are excellent examples who rock these styles.
The Square shape is characterised by a broad forehead, square chin and wide cheekbones. The goal is to find sunglasses that would soften your sharper features. The style you should go for is the rounded shape. Choose from the classic black or dark lenses that bring some extra ‘cool’ to your look. Or, you can up your game with some colourful lenses and jump right to the trending look. Other options for you are the cat-eye sunnies with rounded edges or a pair of staple aviators. Angelina Jolie is rarely seen without these, while Sandra Bullock and Jessica Biel know how to pull these looks off.
If your face is rounded, you need to balance out your soft features, so go for the geometric frames. D-frames – also known as wayfarers – are an ideal option. We love this classic style as it’s extremely flattering and perfect to finish any look. But if you’re looking to making a fashion statement this summer, get a pair of embellished sunnies! Think floral appliqués or metallic finishes. Follow in the footsteps of Miranda Kerr, Selena Gomez and Mila Kunis.
Those of you who have a wide forehead and a narrower mouth and chin have a heart-shaped face. Avoid frames that are wider on the top, and go for rounded or square styles. However, the perfect option for you is aviator sunglasses. These sunnies will broaden the appearance of your jawline. Put on a pair of aviators for a laid-back look and beachy vibes. Don’t be afraid to be adventurous with the colours of lenses, summer stands for colour!!! Jennifer Love Hewitt, Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Lawrence are face-shapes to go by.
