How to choose the right sunglasses for your face

Sunglasses are the ultimate style statement. Just about anybody looks stylish with glares perched on their nose. But other than making you look awesome and jazzing up your outfit, sunglasses also protect your eyes and the delicate skin under your eyes from UV rays, pollution and smoke.

However, your perfect glam look could end in disaster if you choose the wrong pair. Yes, choosing the right kind of sunglasses that suit your face takes some work. You need to keep a few things in mind before zeroing in on the right frame.

Here are a few pointers to help you choose the best sunglasses that suit your face.

Finding the right frame

The first thing you need to do is identify your face shape. You need to look for the right kind of glasses, depending on whether your face is oval, round, square, oblong, or diamond-shaped.

Round face

If you have a round face, you should go for angular, square, or rectangular sunglasses. Avoid rounded or oval glasses. Wide frames that extend beyond the cheekbones will suit you best as they will slim down your round cheeks.

Oval face

An oval face is a classic face. Just about anything suits an oval face. You can literally rock any kind of sunglasses.

Diamond face

You should wear small frames; oversize sunglasses are not for you. Your frame should end before your cheekbones. This will make your face look narrow.

Heart-shaped face

Wrap sunglasses will look good on you. You should wear frames that are wide at the top. By carrying the frame around your temples, you will soften the wide forehead and balance the pointy chin.

Square face

Soft, rounded edges, and delicate, feminine designs will suit you best. You need the feminine touch to soften the contours of your face. Avoid squares and rectangles. Ovals and oversized round glasses will also look good on you.

Oblong face

You need wide frames, decorated rims or detailing on the temples. They will make your face appear wider and shorter. Avoid small frames as they accentuate the length of your face.
