Be it the blazing summer sun or the stark winter sun, shades are our constant pals in fighting away harsh sunlight and that too, in knock-out style. Shades can be the greatest style enhancers of your face once you get to know which type suits your face the most. To help you with that crucial task, we bring you all that you need to know about the matches made in heaven between different types of shades and the various face shapes.
If you have a nice, full, round face; then you should absolutely go for the cat-eye glasses and square frames. A round face is widest across the cheekbones and narrows at the forehead and jawline. Oversized or rectangular frames set off the roundness of your face. You can also opt for sleek aviators to accessorize your stylish summer outfits. So if you want to step out in style, then just pick up a cat eyed frame in unconventional hues like grey or pink to go with that printed shirt and high waists pants.
If you showcase the symbol of love though your face shape; then retro, square or sporty frames are the choices for you. The narrowest part of a heart shaped face is at the jawline so any frame that is wider on the top rather than at the bottom will work well for you. Just pick up a pair of red or blue wayfarers to go with that denim shirt dress and sneakers and you are all set to stun the sun!
For women with oval-shaped faces, aviators or oversized frames are absolute must-haves. Oval faces are longer rather than wide so it can effortlessly pull of any round or oversized frame. Play with colors or patterns to create a bit of quirk. So while planning that brunch outfit, do not forget your aviators be it in pop colours like yellow or blue or the evergreen silver ones to go with that gorgeous off shoulder floral maxi!
Girls with this face shape can blindly go for the round or shield frames. This face has a strong jaw, wide forehead and wide cheekbones. To soften these features, you can opt for rimless edges. So, whenever you are on vacation mode, be sure to pack those cool Lennons ‘coz those beauties, along with denim shorts and strappy halters, make for the perfect beach outfit!
