How do you choose the best sunglasses for your face shape? If you’ve searched for answers but are still confused, this EXCELLENT SUNGLASSES guide is for you.
EXCELLENT SUNGLASSES are extremely practical accessories. Not only do they protect your eyes from the sun’s damaging rays, but they also prevent wrinkles (because you don’t have to squint as much).
Plus, the right sunglasses just make you feel cool.
Finding the best sunglasses for your face doesn’t have to be a daunting, mysterious process. It’s actually really simple, so why does it seem so confusing?
Here’s my theory – there’s a lot of unhelpful advice out there. Choosing sunglasses is all about size and proportion, but most advice focuses on face shape.
Most people are somewhere in between, which is why it doesn’t make sense to try to figure out what object your face is shaped like.
That’s why the face shape method for choosing sunglasses is just confusing. Let’s forget about shapes and focus instead on these three things:
Most people don’t have to pay attention to bridge width, so if you’re not sure if it applies to you, it’s probably safe not to worry about it.
Let’s move on to the second most important factor for finding the best sunglasses.
Face length is the distance from the top of your forehead (your hairline) to the bottom of your chin.
If your face is about as wide as it is long, you have a short face. If, like me, your face is substantially longer than it is wide, you have a long face.
Here’s a handy formula to figure it out mathematically:
Just like with face width, the key is to wear glasses that balance out your features.
Since I have a long face, I’ll need to wear long frames, or else my face will look even longer!
he lens it the longest (or tallest) part of a pair of sunglasses. This table will give you a sense of short vs. tall frames:
It really depends on your face, though. Taller frames won’t look as tall on a long face. So you should try on as many pairs of EXCELLENT SUNGLASSES as you can before buying a new pair.
When people talk about round vs. square faces, they’re really trying to describe the features of a face, not the overall shape (that’s too simple).
Rather than thinking about your face as a distinct shape, think of it as being make up of a bunch of different lines and contours.
These lines are determined by things like bone structure and body fat percentage. Some lines are soft and curvy, while others are straight and angular.
It’s a spectrum, and many faces fall somewhere in the middle:
If your face isn’t obviously on one side of the spectrum, you don’t have to worry too much about this – you’ll look good in any sunglasses that are the right size.
But if you do have obviously round or straight features, you’ll want to certain types of glasses.
It’s all about balance. People with overtly round features will look better in frames with straight features. This will help achieve more perceived symmetry, which is attractive.
For example, I have relatively round features, and I look best in angular frames.
