Sunglasses are obviously gorgeous and really add something special to an outfit, but they are also important to wear to protect your eyes from the sun. I want to show you how to find your perfect sunglasses for every face shape so that you make sure your pretty little eyes are always covered while still looking stylish. I obviously wear them all the time living in L.A., so I have quite the collection but I know there is a science to the perfect sunglasses and I want to share with you!
If you have a square face, you want to look for a circular sunglass shape. You can do a more rounded out aviator (not the ones that drop at the bottom) or even a simple circle lens shape. Channel Nicole Richie with some oversized sunglasses as well to look super chic because they won’t overpower you or make your face look smaller. Here are some of my favorite styles.
If you have a round face, you can be a little bit more liberal with your sunglass shape. You can wear an oversized pair of sunnies as long as they don’t go too far past the apple of your cheek. Have some fun and opt for a fun sunglass shape, like hearts and stars, or strong, angular frames.
For you ladies with an oval face, once again, you’re free to choose from many sunglass shapes. Aviators, wayfarers, or cat eye will look especially fabulous on you. I wouldn’t go for anything too rectangular because it could distort the length of your face.
A heart shaped face tends to be a little bit more filled out towards the forehead and narrows at the bottom. A heart faced beauty wants to look for a sunglass shape that follows the shape of the face, like a cat eye or wayfarer, that narrows towards the bottom.
Sunglasses really are becoming a statement all on their own, the patterns and embellishments really stand out regardless of the shape or style. No matter what your face shape is, you can find your perfect sunglasses that is a more flattering shape that speaks to your personality and sense of style. What’s most important is that you feel confident and beautiful, AND keep those gorgeous eyes protected!
