Picking out sunglasses can be stressful. Since they sit right on your face they are going to be the first thing someone notices about you. Sunglasses can either enhance your overall look or possibly enhance some features of your face shape you may be less than enthusiastic about enhancing.
Below is a breakdown of what shapes to look for when purchasing the perfect pair of IGo sunglasses.
With a round face shape your cheeks are the widest part of your face. The face is outlined by soft edges and is nearly as wide as it is long. For those with a round face-shape there are two routes to consider: round or square shaped sunglasses. Go for a round frame that will enhance the roundness of the face. There will be no harsh contrasting lines drawing across your face as the roundness sweetly compliments your face shape. For men or women, the Oriki-Round Wooden Sunglasses or the Black Lade- Retro Plastic and Bamboo Sunglasses will achieve this look.
While round frames will naturally compliment the roundness of your face, a pair of retro square sunglasses can provide a contrast that also enhances the roundness. Try on a pair of the Black Lewa- Wayfarer Plastic and Bamboo Sunglasses to see how the square shape works for you.
For a heart-shaped faced individual, the jaw is the narrowest point of the face. For this face-shape it is best to stick to frames that are wider on the top than the bottom. This is best achieved by wearing a classic pair of square shaped pair of sunglasses or the ever-trendy pair of cat-eye sunglasses.
For the perfect round sunglasses, check out IGo’s Lewa line which comes in black, blue, gray, red, white, transparent or tortoise. These have a very classic Wayfarer shape that will keep you looking fresh all summer. For a cool cat-eye look, try a pair of the Gato Rimless Retro Cat Eye Sunglasses which come in black or tortoise.
Square faces are strong and impression-making. A square face is one that has a wide jaw, forehead and cheeks. Usually it can be a bit too drastic to put a square or rectangular frame on someone with a square face because it further enhances their already striking features. For the perfect round frame, try on a pair of the Lade- Retro Plastic and Bamboo Sunglasses which come in black or lade.
If you have an Oval face, you're lucky. Pretty much any type of frame will look great on you. Your forehead may be slightly wider than the chin, and the length of the face is about one and a half times the width. Since you can wear anything, try out the Bwiza Retro Wooden Sunglasses or the Urzuri Square Wooden Sunglasses.
