How to choose sunglasses

When buying sunglasses online you need to look at the size of your face and shape of your face. Smaller sunglasses are for samller faces and larger for larger.

Different shapes & frame suggestions

Oval face

Almost any style works for oval face. Experiment with the latest looks, such as wraparounds or shields. Square shaped frames with gently rounded edges and higher temples also look good on an oval face.Frame suggestions : Any frame shape

Round face

Frames should make the face appear longer and thinner. In general, look for frames equal to or slightly wider than the broadest part of the face. Minimize the curves and add definition with soft, angular, rectangular styles or double brow styles. Higher temples will create a longer profile. Sunglasses with brow bars also pull the eye upward, making the face appear longer.Frame suggestions : Wider frames with angular / rectangular styles

Diamond shaped face

This face shape has wide or high cheekbones with a narrow forehead and chin. Oval sunglasses will soften the contour of the face, although softly curved square frames will work as well. Make sure the styles are no wider than the top of the cheekbones.Frame suggestions : Oval, Square, Rimless

Square shaped face

This face shape consists of a strong jawline, a broad forehead and wide cheekbones. Reduce the angles with soft, curvy styles that will give the face some definition such as cat-eye styles. The classic ovals also works well for this face shape.Frame suggestions : Oval, Round, Cat Eyes

Oblongated face

Widen and shorten the face with sunglass styles that do not extend beyond the widest part of the face. Round or square shapes will look great on this face. Frames with short horizontal and long vertical lines also work. Decorative or contrasting temples add width to the face.Frame suggestions : Round, Square

Triangle shape

This face has a narrow jaw and a wide forehead. Soften the lower portion of the face by accenting the eye area. Styles such as cat- eyes should angle outward at the top corner and be wide enough to balance the jawline. You can also try metal frames with rimless bottoms. Frame suggestions : Frames with a Straight Top Line, Cat Eyes
