Cool Shades: Stylin’ of Sunglasses

Jun 20, 2013

We know you want to look chic in your sunglasses this summer. Consider this your go-to guide on how to find the best style to flatter your face shape. Finding sunglasses to suit you can be tricky but if you go shopping armed with the right tips, you won't go home empty-handed and you'll have a cool and stylish pair you can wear to shield your eyes from the sun and give them UV protection year round, not just in the summer! Remember, the size of your sunglasses should be proportional to your face size. Don't swamp your features with huge oversized frames if you have a small face and vice versa. 

Heart-shaped Face

A heart-shaped face is defined by a wider forehead and a narrower jaw line with high cheekbones and a narrower chin like Reese Witherspoon. Go for dramatic cat-eye shaped sunglasses - not only are they retro cool, they will accentuate your face shape the best.

Round Face

Rounder faces like Kirsten Dunst tend to have an equal width and length and features soft curves with few angles and fuller cheeks. Add definition with a pair of angular, square-shaped sunglasses.  Avoid round frames or frames that are too oversized as they will just emphasize the rounder rather than flatter your face shape. You want to highlight your best features, not hide them!

Square-shaped Face

A square-shaped face like Lea Michele's is proportional in length and width and tends to have a defined jaw, square chin and a broad forehead. Try round glasses to balance out proportions! Soft, curved styles will balance the strong angles and soften your look. Steer clear of square-shaped frames and go for something rounded to look your best

Oval Face

If your face is oval-shaped like Kristen Stewart, sunglass shopping should be an absolute breeze because this face shape can pretty much wear anything! An oval face is defined by balanced proportions, a narrow forehead and jaw line, a slightly narrower chin and high cheekbones. Experiment with trendy styles or aviators for a sleek summer look.

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion

Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.
