Buying The Perfect Pair Of Sunglasses For Men

Much like any other personal accessory, wearing sunglasses for men and women has a right and wrong way of doing it. With regards to the subject of buying a sunglass, many of us are having a hard time choosing stylish designs and eventually, leaving the shop frustrated and empty handed. That’s the main reason why you have to determine the shape of your face first as this can help you to find the ideal pair of frames to perfectly suit your facial structure.

You have to take a photo of yourself looking directly at the camera and draw along the edges of your face in order to know if your face has an oval, square, heart shaped or oblong shape. There’s a simpler way to do this and it’s by standing in front of the mirror and use erasable marker or lipstick which ever you find comfortable and draw along the edges of your face. It works well most of the time despite the fact that it looks weird.

As soon as you have figured out the shape of your face, you can start in choosing sunglasses for men.

Oval face – here, the face has soft angles that tapers slightly from forehead to chin typically with prominent cheekbones. Those who have oval faces are lucky actually because any frame looks good on them. It will be recommended to wear sunglasses that cover you from eyebrows to cheekbones and as much as possible, avoid the larger frames when it comes to the frames.

Square face – here, the features of your face like cheekbones, jawline and forehead roughly has the same width. For frames of sunglasses for men, it is best to go for oval or round frames similar to butterfly shapes or aviator styles which helps in softening sharp edges.

Round face – if your face’s shape looks like one, it means that the length and width are the same with full cheeks and has less defined angles. Ideally, when wearing sunglasses, go for angular and sharp lines to elongate the face and to make it sharper and thinner. As a matter of fact, square, shield, wrap and rectangle shapes work perfectly for those who have round faces.

Heart face – as for this face shape, it distinctively tapers from temples to the chin. When it comes to the frames of sunglasses for men, you should go for wider lower edges in order to divert the attention downwards which helps in elongating your face.

Oblong face – these people have few angles with narrow and long face. If you’re trying to buy sunglasses for men who have such shape, make sure to go for thick, rectangular and large frames to be able to add width.
