Sunglasses cover a significant part of our face when worn so it is important that we find a pair of glasses that compliment our face. The shape of our face is one of the biggest factors to consider when choosing a pair of shades so I keep this guide in mind when shopping for your next pair.
Guys with a strong jaw line and strong cheekbones are best suited with rounded edged sunglasses like aviators. They want to stick with round or oval shaped lens to round out the sharpness of their features to give them a more balanced look. This type of face can get away with wearing rectangle lens as long as they have soft edges but just remember to keep the details of the glasses to the minimum.
The ideal eyewear for guys with round faces are ones with angular styles that will lengthen your face. These types of frames will make you appear slimmer and sharper and give you a more defined look. Try your best to stay away from round shaped sunglasses as it will mimic your face shape and will just look odd.
This face is also known as a rectangle face and looks best in larger sized glasses, especially the aviator type lens that will take advantage of the tear drop silhouette. Although it is important to look for a larger sized pair of glasses that fit your face, make sure you don’t choose one that extend beyond the widest part of your face.
Guys with oval shaped faces are the luckiest because they can experiment with different multiple styles since oval faces suit almost any frame. To compliment your wide or high cheek bones, stick to oval and rimless frames. Just make sure not to get sunglasses that are to big because you don’t want them to block your symmetrical face. It is best to have them from your eyebrows to your cheekbones.
Diamond faces are characterized having sharp and narrow jawlines and forehead with their cheekbones being the widest part of their face. Diamond shaped faces are one of the few who can pull off the retro, rectangular sunglasses. Rectangle frames work extremely well as it balances out the sharpness in the chin and they can use a bit of color to draw more attention to the eyes.
Before you go start shopping for you next pair of sunglasses, keep in mind that this is only a guide to help you choose which pair of sunglasses is right for you. The most important thing when buying a pair is that you must feel and look confident when wearing them.
