We all have different face shapes and details. That and the tone of our skin determine which sunglasses suit our face best. Here we give you tips on how to find sunglasses that suit your face.
Shopping for clothes and accessories online has become increasingly common. This has its advantages, but one of the disadvantages is that we don’t have the expertise available that is usually available in physical stores. That’s why it’s a good idea to gather some knowledge yourself before you decide to buy sunglasses online.
Tips for choosing sunglasses
Here are some of the best tips for choosing sunglasses based on your face shape and skin tone.
Face shape with straight lines
If you have a face shape with straight lines, break it up with a pair of round sunglasses. This gives a softer look. Examples of sunglasses you should choose are pilot frames or oval shapes.
Round face shape
If you have a round face shape, you should choose a frame with straighter lines. A round frame enhances your round face and it makes it easy to get too much of a good thing.
Saint Laurent and Tom Ford are two brands we can recommend if you’re looking for sunglasses with straighter lines.
Elongated face shape
You can get more proportion in your face by choosing sunglasses with more depth. For this purpose, sunglasses with cat-eye frames are great for breaking up the lines on your face.
There are no pure sunglasses for men with cat-eye frames. However, both Ray-Ban and Tom Ford have several models with frames that break up the lines of the face with their clearly protruding upper part.
Heart-shaped faces look best with round or butterfly-shaped glasses. You can also make use of pilot glasses with this face shape.
There are plenty of stylish sunglasses with round frames on the market right now. Oliver Peoples model Cary Grant is one of these. Affordable TBD Eyewear is also a brand to look out for.

Oval face shape
If you have an oval face shape, it’s easy to choose sunglasses after most models fit. You can completely focus on finding frames that enhance your personal style.
There are many stylish sunglasses on the market right now for those who want to make a fashion statement with the help of these. Eyevan 7285 is one of the brands that has impressed us with its latest collections thanks to stylish colour schemes on both frames and lenses.
