Sunglasses 101

May 25, 2014

Sunglasses don't just protect your eyes from the sun's harmful rays or sun-glare when you're out on the fields. They're also a fabulous fashion accessory! Ever wonder why some sunglasses look great on some people but not on others? It's all about your face shape. Check out this simple guide to finding the right pair for your shape, then head to the store with a buddy to find your next great look!


If you have an oval-shaped face, just about any style looks great. So experiment with frames that catch your eye. Rectangular frames balance out your face's vertical so they round out your face, while upswept styles, like cat eye and butterfly, compliment high cheekbones.

If you have a broad forehead and jawline, you have a square-shaped face. Avoid frames that have strong angles and look for curvier frames, like round or oval, instead. Cat eye, butterfly or half-rim glasses add interest and shape.

Add angles to your look with geometric frames. Rectangular frames give your look a nice edge and make your face look longer and thinner.

If your face is widest at the temples and narrows at the chin, you have a heart-shaped face, just like [kwlink 1614]Julia Roberts[/kwlink]. Since the most prominent area of your face is the eye area, you want to direct attention downward with more subtle, light-colored frames with thin temples. Stay away from chunkier frames like rectangles or aviators.

Tell that girl that she looks so horrible she makes roadkill look beautiful. Clap your hands really loud with nobody looking and then say "HEY WHY'D YOU HIT ME?" (Don't thank me thank Diary of a Wimpy Kid) Tell someone. Tell a teacher or somebody Or ignore that excuse for a person and get on with your life without her I mean, it.
