Choosing the right sunglasses is more complicated than it may seem. That is why it often seems so hard to find a pair of sunglasses that look good by simply trying random pairs off the rack. This is a trial and error process that leads to many more failures than successes. Follow these tips to help determine the best kinds of sunglasses to fit your style.
Choosing the Right Sunglasses for Your Face Shape
The single most important factor to pick the right kind of sunglasses is to know your face shape. Different face shapes benefit from different styles of sunglasses. In general, you want to go with a shape that contrasts with your face shape.
For example, those with round faces should pick out angular styles of sunglasses. Rectangular frames look great on round faces. A narrow pair of frames will help to lengthen a round face.
People with oval faces have naturally balanced appearances. They will do best by selecting sunglasses that keep this balance. Wayfarers and aviators both look great on an oval face.
A square face needs to be softened with some round frames. Aviators are the best choices for those with square faces.
Those that have faces that are disproportionately big on the top or bottom can offset this by selecting sunglasses that are colored brightly on the half of the face that is smaller.
Choosing the Right Sunglasses for Your Skin Tone
Skin tone is the next most important factor in selecting a fashionable pair of sunglasses. Those with pale complexions will do best to select frames that are silver, gold, pink, blue, jade and black.
Those with olive or darker skin will do best to select frames that have warm colors like tortoiseshell, camel, gold, khaki, peach, orange, red and copper.
In general, pick a warm color for a darker complexion and a cool color for a lighter one.
Follow these steps and you will make selecting a pair of fashionable sunglasses much more of a science, instead of a guessing game.
