Sunglasses Q&A

Picking The Right Sunglasses for Mens Face Shape

Finding the right sunglasses can be challenging. People look out for trends and decide to buy a certain style without thinking whether it will suit them or not. When men buy accessories like watch or a hat they like to spend quality time choosing them. Same goes with the Sunglasses. They have now become premium accessories and an important part of the man’s wardrobe. Also they are for long term so it is very important to buy a pair that suits the shape of their face.

The shape of your face is the biggest factor to consider when choosing your sunglasses.

Square Shape

The square shape is characterized by a board jaw line, wide forehead and wide cheek bones which gives a clear masculine look. This kind of shape needs to be softened and one should wear sunglasses with soft round lines or rimless edges. So men with square face should go for round or oval shape kind of lenses. One can go for aviator or butterflies. One can choose from models like Ray-Ban Aviators, Ray-Ban Clubmaster or Dolce and Gabbana Aviators.

Oval Shape

Oval shape is longer than is it wide and is gently rounded. They can carry almost any kind of style especially round or square frame. One has to be careful of the proportions and keep in mind not to go for too small or too big frames for their face. Ray-Ban Wayfarers, Maui Jim 293 Legends, Prada Linea Rossa PS 56MS and Oakley 009012 Holbrook are few models one can go for oval face.

Round Shape

It is the widest across the cheekbones and narrows a bit at the forehead and jaw line. It has noticeable curves and less defined angles. So the sunglasses should have sharp angular lines that will help elongate the face and make it look thinner and sharper. One can go for square, rectangle and even cat eye for such kind of face. For this shape Ray-Ban Wayfarers, Emporio Armani EA2001 and Oakley 009135 Jupiter Squared are good options.

Heart Shape

They are widest at the temples and narrowest at the chin. For this shape any sunglasses which are wider at the top and narrow at the bottom will be good, so that the attention is shifted from downward and the face looks elongated. One can wear cat eye style or glasses that have rounded edges. Styles like rimless, aviator, butterflies will suit heart shape. Some models like Ray-Ban RB414756, Versace VE2141, Polo Ralph Lauren PH4064 suit heart shape very well.
