Let’s Talk Sunglasses

Sunglasses are the definition of a timeless accessory. For decades, ladies have been using them to transform any outfit from drab to classy. When you think of sunglasses, images of classy women wearing dark, over-sized round frames immediately come to mind. However, there are hundreds of different shapes, styles, and colors that sunglasses come in. This variety can make it hard to know which glasses will look best on you but by trying on a few different pairs and using the following tips, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect pair for you!

Face shapes are divided into four different categories: round, oval, square and heart. The names of the categories are pretty self explanatory. If you’re not quite sure which category describes your shape best then ask one of your friends or family members what they think. It’s always best to have a second opinion! Once your sure about the shape it’s time to go shopping!

If you have a round face, try wearing a pair of geometrical shaped sunglasses to give your face a more contoured look. Square shaped glasses and round shaped glasses will look great on you! Wayfarers are another great style to try. They’re classy and elegant and sure to give you a sophisticated look!

People with oval shaped faces are the luckiest when it comes to sunglasses because all shapes are flattering on them. Try a dramatic pair of over sized glasses for some added intrigue to your outfit or the ever classic aviators for an everyday look!

If you have a square shaped face which means a wider jaw line and/or a wider forehead you best off buying round or oval shaped glasses for balance! The softer shape of the glasses will highlight your bold features for a gorgeous look! Cat eye styled glasses are another great style to try for a fashionable and vintage look!

Lastly, if you’re face is heart shaped try some exaggerated frames to play up your unique look!

Never forget to have fun and experiment with all different types of shapes, colors, and styles when it comes to sunglasses! They’re an amazing final touch to any outfit and a great way to add some interest to your look!

  1. I have a round face and square shaped glasses look good on me, however I also like how oversized glasses look on me too. In the end comes down to more than just the shape of your face.

  2. I am a huge fan of cat eye styled glasses…they rock!! I love my pair of Chanel glasses.
