Frames For Every Face Shape

For SS15, many collections reference the bohemian vibe of the 70’s, with sunglasses in the limelight of the polarizing trend.  This season, designers take us back to a time of our icons like Farrah Fawcett in classic aviators and Joni Mitchell in hippie-chic oversized opticals.  There are some major sunnies with well-thought color schemes, luxurious materials, and iconic shapes that will transform your outfit from cool to super style icon! And don't worry we aren't leaving you hanging! We have sourced the perfect frames for each face shape to make sure you have some new shades just in time for Coachella. 

 

 


SQUARE

A square shape is often characterized by a striking jawline, wide cheekbones, and a well-defined forehead.

STYLE SUGGESTION: Your distinctive look is perfect for a few sunglass shapes. Try curvier features to off-set angular features and playfully balance a striking jawline.

FRAMES FOR YOUR FACE: oval, cat-eye, round, pilot, wrap, butterfly


ROUND

Round faces have a good proportion between width and length: characterized by feminine features that are very soft, contoured angles.

STYLE SUGGESTION: Elongate and add definition to your face with more geometric-shaped frames. Off-setting your contours give you an elegant edge.

FRAMES FOR YOUR FACE: oval, round, wrap, wayfarer


HEART

A heart-shaped face usually means you’ve got a broader brow, maybe wider cheekbones, and a narrow chin.

STYLE SUGGESTION: Direct attention downward or elongate your look to even out proportions with the right pair of frames – opt for light-colored frames, frames with thin temples, or frames with exaggerated bottoms. Flashier frames will give your face a more striking appearance.

FRAMES FOR YOUR FACE: round, cat-eye, semi-rimless, pilot, butterfly 


OVAL

A heart-shaped face usually means you’ve got a broader brow, maybe wider cheekbones, and a narrow chin.

STYLE SUGGESTION: Direct attention downward or elongate your look to even out proportions with the right pair of frames – opt for light-colored frames, frames with thin temples, or frames with exaggerated bottoms. Flashier frames will give your face a more striking appearance.

FRAMES FOR YOUR FACE: round, cat-eye, semi-rimless, pilot, butterfly 

 



NOTABLE RULE: Choose styles that are the opposite of your face shape.
