Choosing The Best Sunglasses For Your Face Shape

designer_sunglasses-2-2

Picking out the perfect pair of sunglasses can be an overwhelming task. I found myself walking into a sunglass store not long ago only to be greeted by hundreds of pairs with different styles, colours and frames and all I could think was, where do I start?

I’m the kind of person that likes to cut corners and make my shopping experience a least painful one, one where I can walk in to a store and my purchase in my size literally fall in to my hands. Just like clothing, sunglasses can be bought by the shape of your face. Use the guide below to work out the shape of your face and what style works for you.

HEART

If you have this face shape you will have been blessed with lovely high cheekbones and a narrow chin to give that “heart” shape. This shape allows you to go for bolder, playful shaped glasses to enhance your facial features.
