Finding the Right Sunglasses For Your Face Shape

When deciding on a new pair of shades for the summer, your number one question/concern should always be, “do these fit my face correctly?” Now, sure you could just wing it and grab a pair at random, but if you’re reading this you’ve already proved that your personal style is important to you and you like to look your best at all times(way to go!). That being said, sunglasses are essentially the cherry on top of the sundae, that is your outfit and will either accentuate your overall look or completely kill the style you’ve worked hard to maintain. You don’t want to look like the 4-year old kid at Disneyland with the bottom of his full size “souvenir” aviators well past his cheek bones.  A lot of people claim they’re picky or “sunglasses they like are hard to find.” I’m going to quickly go over how to get over this hump. Whether you have a round/circular face, a more angular face or have a prominent jaw line or any other possible face shape, I can direct you towards the style that suits you best.


With the traditional wayfarer as well as round, wire-frame styles becoming a bigger trend each year, something to keep in mind is not all frames will be the same shape/size just because it says they’re wayfarers on the price tag. Ray-Ban themselves, have re-designed their classic pre-existing silhouette, now offering multiple sizes catering to all face shapes and head sizes.

So, obviously my number one recommendation is to go into a store and try on as many different styles and frame shapes as possible, BUT if you’re more of an online shopping kind of person or don’t have access to an eyewear store, don’t you worry. I was able to find  this helpful “face-shape guide” from the folks at the Beauty Department just for you online shoppers. Use this guide if you’re having any trouble on your search for the perfect pair, and get back to us with the pair you pick up in the comments below.



Stylin’ Shades

Sunglasses For Summer

Here is a super quick “style-guide” on sunglasses for both men and women. Going to go over some popular designs and styles from various brands. I’m not going to go TOO far into detail though, so that the element of surprise helps influence your decision when you’re shopping for your new pair. Here it is…


Nowadays, Ray-Ban and Persol aren’t the only brands doing every possible rendition of the classic “wayfarer” design, made iconic by JFK during his presidency. You can now find similar designs in millions of different colorways from brands like SUPER, Oakley, and even NEFF.


As we see the classic sunglass designs becoming more and more popular today, there’s no way I could forget about the wire-frame shades. Big, small, round, aviator, silver, and gold. The options are endless believe it or not. You could even get on your Johnny Depp/Fear and Loathing steeze and rock the orange tinted lenses in yours.

Choose Your Own Destiny

I have given you guys the two most popular sunglass “genres” to check out when you start shopping, now it’s just time for you to make a decision for yourself. Just remember, when you can’t decide between two, just get both. That’s just double the style points that the ladies will notice in your summer wardrobe, duh!
