Choosing the best shape for your shades

Understanding the right eyewear shape for your face is a heck of a problem! In addition, many of us spend years and years buying hundreds of shades, and in conclusion stacking them all in a closet. Let’s try and understand what shape is right for us.

Oval shaped Face


Like: Jessica Alba, Jennifer Connelly, Julianne Moore

Charateristic: Face has symmetrical features, with jaw tapering evenly to the chin.In other words, oval faces have hit the jackpot! In addition, almost any style will flatter this face. In conclusion, wayfarer style, wrap-around or rounded square silhouettes are ideal choices.

Choose: Most of all, cat eyes, round, oversizes, aviator as well as wrap style… choose glasses that are the same width as you face, not wider

Avoid: In particular, frames that are too narrow for your face


Like: Mila Kunis, Kirsten Dunst, Emma Stone

Charateristic: Face width and lenght are roughy equal to one another. With the widest point being at the cheekbones. In addition, wide-frame and rectangular-shaped sunglasses in deep bold colors add definition and therefore making the face look longer

Choose: In particular, wide, square and rectangular frames

Avoid: Most of all, round frames, that make your face look more round


Avoid: Most importantly, large frames, overly emebllished glasses 

Like: Angelina Jolie, Lady Gaga, Demi Moore

Charateristic: Square faces are slightly wider than they are tall, in addition, with a strong, sculpted jaw. Frames should sit high on the face to balance the jaw-round-frame and cat-eye styles are especially flattering

Choose: Most of all, oval or Round frames, that will balance this face shape

Avoid: In particular, angular frames, thant will emphasise angular features


Like: Reese Whiterspoon, Kate Hudson

Charateristic: Most importantly, face tapers through the cheekbones and is narrowest at the chin. Above all, light-colored sunglasses in cat-eye, aviators and rimless styles are perfect for you. 

Choose: Cat-eye, round and aviators frame

Avoid: In particular, large Frames, overly emebllished glasses
