Finding the right sunglasses
to suit your face shape is difficult. You could love the sunglasses
your friend is wearing, but it may not look as good on you. At the Woodgeek Store
, we've come up with a guide to help you find the perfect sunglasses
for your face shape.
How to identify the shape of your face?
* The first step is to identify the shape of your face. If you're not sure of the shape of your face, all you have to do is make sure there's no hair falling on your face and then trace the outline of your face with a bar of soap on a mirror.
* The shape traced in the mirror will help you determine the shape of your face.
* Always check measurements of the sunglasses and compare it with that of your face.
Heart-shaped faces are wider at the top and tapers towards the bottom. So while choosing your wooden sunglasses
, choose sunglasses frames
that contrast the shape of your face. Minimize the width of the top of the face with sunglasses that are wider at the bottom.
People with round shaped faces should opt for sunglasses
with sharp angles as this will elongate the face and make it look sharper. Your ideal pair of sunglasses
will be more in width than in length. Wider frames give the illusion of a slimmer face.
People with oval-shaped faces are the lucky ones as most frames suit their face. An oval-shaped face is pretty much proportionate so the only thing to keep in mind while choosing sunglasses
is to maintain the natural balance of your features. Round and square shaped sunglasses
suit an oval face the best.
People with square shaped faces should choose frames to round out the sharpness of their features. Sunglasses
with round or oval shaped lenses will give a square shaped face a more balanced look by evening out the squareness of the face.
Oblong shaped faces are rectangular, long and narrow with few angles. An oblong face works especially well with wider sunglasses
as they will make your long face appear shorter and wider. Try frames with more depth than width.
