Summer is host to a bevy of trends, from maxi dresses to colored denim and straw-infused accessories. A summer staple that continually remains at the top of any fashionista’s list, regardless of popularity, are of course, sunglasses. While styles evolve, the demand for this timeless accessory remains a constant. From aviator to retro, there is a pair of frames that suits every face shape. Following is a guide to your best shady look this summer season!
- Heart-shaped: A heart-shaped face is typically wider at the forehead and tapers downward to a narrow chin. To add width to the lower part of the face and soften a broad forehead, round sunglasses are most flattering. Try a pair of classic aviators, like those worn by Oscar-winning actress, Reese Witherspoon.
- Square: If your face is widest at your cheekbones with a square jaw line, you most likely have a square-shaped face. Sunglasses with oval or round fames soften angular features without compromising the depth of your face. Invest in a pair of aviators or retro shades to complement your face shape!
- Round: Round faces are typically the same width and length with a rounded chin. Choose shades that make your face appear longer and thinner. Angular and horizontal frames, as worn by actresses Kirsten Dunst and Kate Bosworth, add depth and dimension to a round face.
- Oval: Oval faces are somewhat longer than they are wide, with no sharp angles and a slightly rounded chin. If you meet these characteristics, consider yourself lucky; most shades flatter oval faces. From aviators to wayfarers, retro to angular, the world is your oyster!
