How To Find The Perfect Sunglasses

In preparation for the sunny weather coming up (fingers crossed), we are looking to what accessories are really essential for any man. Dependant on your style the finishing touches may differ, however when the sun hits and all that is on our mind are days out with friends, holidays, partying, and one too many beers, we know that we will be in need of a good pair of sunglasses.

Sunglasses are so hard to get right, of course you can follow the trends but what it really comes down to is what suits you. The best way to figure this out when purchasing something online is working out your face shape – then the rest is up to you!

Let us help you with our guide to face shapes and the perfect sunglasses.

Square Face Shapes

Easily detected by a strong jaw line and wide cheekbones – strong features look good with oversized frames, delicate faces should opt for medium sized styles. Rectangular shapes with soft edges are a good choice, we would advise to keep colours and details minimal and let strong features of the face do the talking.

Round Face Shapes
Men with rounded faces want to create definition with the right frames. Look for a pair that will be slightly wider than your face, this way your cheeks will appear slimmer. Angular styles will elongate the face, so with this in mind we would opt for solid colour frames over metal details.

Oblong Face Shapes
Large round or square frames will become your best friend this summer! Oblong face shapes require sunglasses that will give the illusion of balance, our advice would be to opt for a pair of glasses that are are smaller than the widest part of the face. We would advise going for aviator styles as well as daring something bold and contemporary!

Heart Face Shapes
A defined chin and strong cheekbones lend themselves perfectly to retro styles – think rectangular designs and colour ways. Create a focal point with your accessories, go for bold colours and details, let the sunglasses do the talking! Remember rectangular frames will balance out a defined heart shaped face.
