Sunglasses to Suit Your Face Shape?

What Sunglasses will suit your face shape?

We have a fab selection of sunglasses in store, but with so much choice, how do you know which style to go for? First you need to work out the shape of your face. The easiest way to do this is to pull your hair back and take a selfie straight on. Don’t try any fancy angles or it wont work. If you draw round your face, you should get a shape roughly corresponding to one of these 5 categories. Use this as a guide when picking out sunglasses.      


Jaw, forehead and cheekbones are all proportioned similarly; your jaw is rounded and nothing particular stands out. Go for nearly anything! Oval faces are versatile so most sunglasses will suit you. Just make sure they aren’t too big or small and you’ll be golden. Aviator sunglasses


You have a long narrow face; your cheekbones don’t protrude much and are a similar width to your jaw and forehead. Go for oversized sunglasses with rounded frames are a good choice for individuals with a lengthy face. Avoid sunglasses that are narrow, as they will make your face look disproportionately horse-like. round sunglasses


You have fuller cheeks with narrower jaw and forehead giving your face a rounded look. Go for wide rectangular frames like wayfarers. Avoid oversized round sunglasses that will exaggerate your debatably chubby cheeks. Square Sunglasses


you have a broad forehead and a square jawline. Go for round or oval sunglasses to soften your angles. Make sure they aren’t too small and avoid squared sunglasses, as they will make your head look boxy. small round sunglasses


You have a wide forehead, high cheekbones and a narrow jaw. Go for cat-eye sunglasses to accentuate those lovely cheekbones. Sunglasses with chunky arms can also make your forehead look less wide. cateye sunglasses If you still aren’t sure, we have a massive collection of sunglasses in store you can try for yourself.
