I know it’s hard to believe, but the sun is coming back. After a long and dreary grey winter, we sometimes lose sight of the fact that summer will come around again. If you really can’t take it, you can always hop on a plane to a warmer destination for a mini-holiday. Either way, whether you’re waiting it out, or running away to Australia, you’ll need sunglasses! Use this guide to find the perfect pair for your face shape and style!
ASOS Chunky Cat Eye Sunglasses, $21
If you’ve got a face like Reese Witherspoon (I’m eternally jealous!), then go funky! You’ve got a broad forehead, wide, killer cheekbones, and a small chin, so play it up with some wide armed frames. Glasses with a top rim wider and stronger from the bottom will counterbalance your forehead and look amazing. Bold cat eye sunnies are perfect for this loveable face shape.
The easiest face to find frames for, oval shapes are balanced with a chin slightly narrower from the forehead, and high cheekbones. You can basically wear anything you like! Why not go fun and fashion forward with big, round, bug-like shades? Or maybe, throw on a pair of huge cat-eye glasses, or just a simple pair of wayfarers? The sunglasses display is your oyster!
If you’ve got a strong, angular face with a broad forehead and sharp jawline, find soft shapes to balance things out. Avoid anything too sharp (so cat eye sunglasses are out) and opt for something classic, like a good pair of aviators.
Round faces are proportionate, with full cheeks, and few angles. These beautiful faces benefit from sunnies that have a certain edginess. Michael Kors’s Butterly Shapes Sunglasses offer a surprising balance to your face shape, and make you a fashion superstar.
