How to Find Trendy Sunglasses for Different Face Shapes
Comments Off on Finding Trendy Sunglasses for Different Face Shapes

A few years ago when I got my first pair of prescription sunglasses I cared more about the brand name then I did about how the style fit my face. Big mistake. I found that I only liked them for a short amount of time. They didn’t “grow on me” like I had hoped for. With a need for new trendy sunglasses in my new prescription this has been top of mind. I’m reminding myself how important it is to shop for sunglasses that suit my face shape over the brand name.

I don’t think that I am the only one guilty of this. It’s common we see a friend or someone we follow on Instagram share something on themselves and instantly think that it’ll be just as good for us. Most of the time it works out, but I find for sunglasses you really want to take the time deciding. It’s important to try on all different styles and trends to see what works best, use the tips below to help get a good idea of where to start.

For myself, I feel like my face is shaped between oval and square. While an oval face shape is known to look good with almost any style frame, I also feel that I personally just have a wider face. This encourages me to pay closer attention to the width and size of the frame. I tend to lean more towards a trendy oversized look to avoid having the frames look too small.

I am loving these round Coach frames and were easily my favorite of five different styles I tried on last week at IRIS.

Trendy Sunglasses for Different Face Shapes

  • Heart

    Find styles that have a small rim, something subtle that comes to a downward point. A narrow frame is also highly recommended.
    Styles trending this year: Aviators and a subtle cat-eye.

  • Oval

    Oval face shapes are known to look good with a wide array of different styles. If you are have an oval face, it’s easy for you to shop what you like before trying it on as you can almost guarantee the shape will be a perfect match.
    Styles trending this year: Bold cat-eye, bold oval, classic rectangle, bohemian

  • Round

    Look for styles that are bold and geometric. The geometric edges contrast well with your round face shape. If you are confident in large bold frames, these would be a perfect fit.
    Styles trending this year: Preppy square, classic rectangle

  • Square

    Opposite of what to look for with a round face, for square faces you want to look for curved edges. Soft curls will pair well with the chiseled look of a square face.
    Styles trending this year: Bohemian oval, aviators, round

  • A few months ago when I got my wisdom teeth removed it put me in a work out rut. I felt super unmotivated and just blah. Really, mostly just felt sorry for myself. Sounds silly, maybe. But I was thinking about it recently and how that’s kind of continued to linger to the last couple months. I weighed myself the other day (we don’t own a scale so I don’t weigh myself often) and that was a bit of a kick in the butt, I realized that yes I wasn’t feeling good about myself, yes I’ve gained a decent amount of weight, and yes that aligns with the less positive thinking, less motivation and large lacking of exercise.

I feel funny writing this out but I think it’s important to talk about. I shared the times I’ve felt motivation, excited and energized to get to the gym, attend a workout or yoga class, but I also want to share that things happen.

We can have good days, good months, even good years but then something might happen that changes the course of our daily routine.

I don’t think I’ve failed, I’ve just lost track of the healthier lifestyle that was making me feel noticeably better. So here I am writing things out, to hopefully connect with you all on a level of understanding.

Maybe you are feeling the blah. Uninspired, low energy and making excuses for yourself. Here’s my little motivation to say, nothing changes unless you do. If you want change BE THE CHANGE.

At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself on repeat this week, in hopes to snap out of it.

  • It’s been six years since we lost our good friend, to me he was very much like a brother. Genuine, caring, funny, and such a family guy. This weekend we took time to remember. My heart feels heavy, I’ve never been good with words during times of grief but this weekend encouraged me that lots of words aren’t always needed. Our actions and the intentional moments mean so much. #domliveson
  • He makes me smile, the real full mouth all the teeth smile.

  • It's a crazy thing what can happen when you start doing the things you love but also might scare you. I've been creating content on this space for five years as this past year has presented some of the most incredible opportunities. This latest one with @coquitlamcentre has been so fun! Excited to share that I am their next and final 'Girl In Focus' -- head over to their feed to see the first video that was created.⁠⠀

Also, sending a big kiss out there for all of you, for being encouraging, inspiring and simply for just being you. If there's something on your heart that you have been wanting to start, but you feel like you don't know how.. maybe you are scared.. maybe you are worried of judgement. Trust me, it's worth putting all that aside and just trying. Just starting. Because in all honesty, starting is always the hardest part.⁠⠀

PS my outfit is from @rw_co, shoes @callitspring at @coquitlamcentre — I couldn’t leave without them! #girlinfocus #workingit #stylebyCQC
  • Who snacks more, you or the kids?

I used to think it was the kids, but since getting Invisalign I've realized more and more how much I love snacking, as I am willing to take my liners in and out every time. #worthit

A new snack I've been trying out from @patiencefruitco are their Active Blends, my favourite blend being the Seasalt & Pepper. Check out my stories to see all three flavours. *sponsored #patiencefruitco
