The Best Sunglasses for your face shape

What are the best sunglasses for your face shape

Have you ever wondered why sunglasses looks great on some people, while on others you got a feeling like something is missing? 

When it comes to buying sunglasses, determining your face size and shape is important because it will help you find a better fitting, more functional pair of sunglasses. Proper fitting sunglasses can give you a stylish look all your own like a superstar.

To help you pick the most flattering sunglasses for your face shape, we’re sharing our tips on pinpointing exactly what your unique face shape is.

It’s hard to go wrong with an oval face — most sunglasses will look great on you. Oval faces have gently rounded, fairly even features, and pretty much any shade is going to work well on them. Designer to sport, fashion to function, everything works. Just don’t get huge frames that block out those pretty symmetrical features; choose sunglasses that cover the face from the eyebrows to the cheekbones.
The round face has noticeable curves and less defined angles. The ideal eyewear should lack curved features while emphasizing sharp angular lines that will help elongate your face and make it look thinner and sharper. This face group may benefit from high-on-the-temple, colorful frames as well. Just stay away from circles, unless you want to over accentuate the round shape of your face. Aim high with aviators or stick to Rectanglesquarewrap and shield are the keys to round-faced sunglass success.
Rounded corners are key to success if you’ve got a square jaw. Square shaped faces—generally about the same length and width across the face—are characterized by a broad forehead and a strong jawline. People in this category should Look for frames sized to match the face in width, but with soft lines. Choose a frame with round or oval shaped lenses that will help round out the sharpness of their features for a more balanced look. Examples of styles that would work well for this face are aviators, Cat-eye, round or any frame style that favors oval or circular curves. Center or top set temples are the way to go with a square face.
Long or Oblong faces, also called rectangular, are long and narrow with few angles. An oblong face works especially well with oversized sunglasses. Also, larger wayfarer or rectangular lenses and sunglasses with thick frames add width to a long face. Another option is sunglasses that feature tall or deep lenses and vintage style frames because the sharp angles and bold lines will give oblong faces an edge, sharpening otherwise soft features. This group is going to turn heads in wrapshieldsquarewayfarer and rectangle styles. Oblong faces should avoid small frames.
Diamond-shaped faces are characterized by a narrow jawline and forehead with the cheekbones as the widest part of the face. Oval and rimless frames will help compliment wide or high cheekbones. Diamond faces should use frames that feature gentle curves and should not be wider than the wearer’s cheekbones. Anything wider than the cheekbones will make the widest point of the face appear even wider (and, in turn, make the chin and forehead appear smaller than they actually are).  
Heart-shaped faces, sometimes called triangle, are widest at the temples and narrowest at the chin. Sunglasses that feature wide lower edges with no straight lines along the top work especially well for this facial group because they shift attention downward and elongate the face. Avoid anything oversized or teardrop shaped, and reach instead for something with a sharper corner. Cat-eye styles or glasses that feature rounded edges are ideal for giving the wearer a more balanced look. This face shape will be best served with shieldbutterflyrimless, or aviator frames.
