The one accessory to rule them all – sunglasses. You are not ready to go outside during the day if you haven’t found your perfect sunglasses. It doesn’t matter if you didn’t have time to put your make-up on, or didn’t get enough sleep, even if your hair is messy – they are here for you. Even as a headband. Now, we are giving you the ultimate guide on how to choose the perfect pair just for you.
How to find sunglasses that fit your face shape in the first place
It is not enough just to say: i want some Lennons. If your head is little bit bigger, you will look like a pumpkin. First, you need to measure your face and write the numbers down.
1. Measure your face length from the top of your forehead (where the hair starts) go over your nose all the way down to the bottom of your chin
2. Measure your jaw line (your jaw starts somewhere below your ears) from one end to the other by going around the bottom of your face
3. Measure your forehead width from one end (where the hair starts) to the other , halfway between your eyebrows and top hairline
4. Measure your cheekbone to cheeckbone distance (cheeckbones are placed right under your eyes)
Now that you have all these measurements, compare them and determine which face shape they fit into.
Round – Angles are almost invisible and your face has noticable curves. Ideal eyewear would be some square or rectangle type to give your face a little bit of sharpness.
Square – Your jaw line is strong, the length of your face is preety much identical as the width and your forehead is broad. Here, you should use round type of shades, like super popular oval carrera sunglasses for example, because they will balance all those sharp angles and make your face look softer.
Oval – This type of face has gently rounded and even features which makes it perfect for any type of shades. Lucky!
Oblong – Long, narrow face with few angles which is perfect for over-sized sunglasses, rectangular ones with thick frames, or the ones with tall or deep lenses and vintage frames
Diamond – Here, the cheekbones are the widest part of your face and your jaw is narrow. In other words your face is perfect for rimless and oval frames which musn’t be wider than your cheekbones
If you want to be noticed wherever you go, theese are the ones for you. They catch everybody’s eye because of their awesome brightening effect produced by a reflective optical coating on the outside of the lenses. I have the big Quay black ones with silver glass, and they are fab!
Cat-eye sunglasses have made a huge comeback and they just somehow add that dose of fierceness and glamour at the same time to basically any outfit
You know what it is, good old irreplaceable – aviators . Developed all the way back in 1936. these old-timers are planning to be worn at least for a 100 years more. And we sure don’t mind.
Go big or go home
Do you know about anything more glamorous than a pair of some big shades? They can really give that movie-star , red carpet note to your outfit can’t they? They just look good on everybody and you know it.
You know what they say: ’70s are comming back. Synonym for love, music, colors and peace. It is a totally normal phenomenon that, when you put theese on, you immediately feel the urge to teleport to some music festival and just dance all night.
