The Perfect Shades
Updated: Jun 7, 2020
Finding the perfect pair of sunglasses is no small feat. Trust me, we've all been there.
A flattering pair of shades is all about proportion. Ever notice how a friend can look amazing in a pair of sunglasses, but you find yourself looking like a bug? Case in point. Certain frame-shapes look better on certain face-shapes.
Whether your face is round, oval, heart-shaped, or square, there's a few simple tips to keep in mind the next time you're on the hunt for the right shades.
Here's to sunglass shopping made simple.
Opt for round or cat-eye to minimize the width of the forehead. Cat-eyes are an absolute classic and always in style. Stay away from bold designs or anything that is too embellished. These multi-colored frames add a pop of color without being too much.
Wide, or patterned frames balance a longer face shape. Really any shades work on an oval shape, but I'd refrain from shades that are more narrow than your face. Oh, and you can never go wrong with gold and tortoise details-- classy and elegant.
Aviators or rectangular shades will help balance the face's fullness. I'm slightly obsessed with the gold detail on these frames.
Curvy frames or aviators will make the face appear thinner and minimize the angles of the jawline. These frames are simple, with elegant details to soften the face.
