Once you have decided to pick the pair of sunglasses based on the primary factors that we discussed yesterday and you have already set how much you are willing to pay for your new eyewear, it is time to consider your facial features like your complexion and the shape of your face. You can further narrow down your choices if you know which types of sunglasses will best fit the shape of your face.
Before you finally buy glasses online, it is wise to know the real shape of your face first and the most appropriate frame shape for your face. Not only will this help you get the best fit, it will likewise help you balance your features with that of the sunglasses.
So, let's the ball rolling!
Oval Face Shape
If you have an oval shape face, your chin and forehead are narrower and your cheekbones are broader. People with oval face have fairly even and gently rounded features.
If you are someone with an oval face, you can wear almost all types of frames. However, the ideal pair of prescription glasses is the one with butterfly shape frames or those frames with a top portion that is heavier, thicker, or darker lower part.
Round Face Shape
People with a round face has less defined angles and more obvious curves. The ideal frames for people with a round face are those that can make the face look longer, thinner, and sharper and those with fewer curves. Some good examples of these types of sunglasses are those with rectangular, wrap, square, and shield frames.
Trapezoidal Face Shape
A trapezoidal face is something like that of Olivia Wilde. This shape features a wider bottom part of the face. If your face is trapezoidal in shape, pick the sunglasses with dramatic cat eye frames or those with half-rim style to balance out your jawline.
Diamond Face Shape
People with a diamond face has the widest cheekbone. Their jawline and forehead are also the narrowest. If you have a diamond face, pick a rimless or oval framed glasses.
Oblong Face Shape
An oblong face is long and narrow. It also features only a few angles. If you have an oblong or rectangular face, you will look great in oversized sunglasses. The most appropriate sunglasses styles for you are square, wayfarer, wrap, rectangular, and shield.
Heart Face Shape
If you have a heart-shaped face, your forehead is remarkably broader, your chin is pointed, and your jawline is narrow. For a heart-shaped face, pick rimless or aviator style sunglasses.
Square Face Shape
Do you have a strong jawline and remarkably broad forehead? Are the length and width of your face the same? If yes, then you have a square face.
If you have a square face like that of Selena Gomez, choose a pair of prescription sunglasses that has rectangular or narrower oval frames with round edges. The butterfly, round, and aviator sunglasses will also look great on you.
