We all know how hard it is to pick out clothes for ourselves, when we’re young. We don’t really have a sense of self, or of what we look like. As we age, we grow into ourselves, and have a much better idea of what fits and flatters us. It definitely helps that we often go shopping more than once a year, or every couple years. This is the problem with finding sunglasses, sometimes. We don’t usually buy sun glasses as often as we do clothing, so we don’t know what to look for. Here’s a simple guide:
If you have a round face, go for sunglasses that are more angular (square, rectangular). These will help balance out your face, and give you angles where you need them. I recommend something like the Picta, by Reptile.
If you have a square face, go for more rounded or oval sunglasses. Again, this balances your face out, and softens some of the harsh angularities in your profile. Try the Lehua, from Maui Jim.
If you have an oval face, you’re lucky. This is considered the ideal face, and you can wear pretty much anything you want!
