The Best Sunglasses for your Face Shape
sample from my on-going style column with NewNowNext…
I’m trying to find a good pair of sunglasses but can’t seem to get the shape down. My face is heart-shaped – which lenses would be best? – Tanya L., Jersey City, NJ
Use this guide to frames and faces to find your proper shape:
Square Face: Round, Oval or Butterfly style shape; glasses that connect at the top of the frame.
Oval Face: Square or rectangular shapes add angles to the soft curves.
Round Face: Angular and geometric frames sharpen your facial features while making your face appear slimmer.
Diamond Face: Oval frames will maintain balance while cat-eyes will emphasize your cheekbones.
Heart Face: Bottom-heavy styles will add width to your lower face while narrow, rounder frames will soften your forehead.
Triangle Face: Top-heavy styles will balance the width of the jaw.
