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

  • When James and I first met (at a tight and bright birthday party) the first thing that I learnt about him was that he was a father. I’ve always known him as a dad and knew right away when I saw him interacting and parenting Ezra that he was marriage material. Love how he parents and fathers our children. Happy Father’s Day to this guy ☝🏻 love you babe! (Posting early cause I’m gonna try to stay off the phone tomorrow.. as a little Father’s Day gift) ☺️
  • Has everyone else noticed the overload of mosquitos right now? I can’t even handle it. I’m pretty sure if I wore this @gentlefawn shirt outside right now I’d be covered with bites in two seconds.

  • Believe it or not.. a few years ago I never liked coffee. 🙀 !! Yup! It wasn’t until I had Sophie that I started drinking coffee, and iced coffees were my go to.
•
@nespresso.ca has recently launched these limited edition capsules designed to create the tastiest iced coffees and lattes. I’m sharing how I made this one in my stories. Fun Fact: every Nespresso capsule is recyclable thanks to the aluminum they are made from, which also keeps the coffee so fresh! As of today, Nespresso now offers recycling solutions in all provinces and territories. If you live in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, the territories and Atlantic Canada, you can recycle your used capsules by sending them through the mail using the Red Bag at no additional cost! If you live in Vancouver, use the Green Bag and place it in your recycling bin. So easy! #partner #NespressoMoments #CWJWpartner
  • Just sat down for my last digital marketing class tonight. It’s not the easiest being a student and a mother but it has been so fulfilling growing my knowledge and skills. I’ve had a few of you message me to “teach you my ways” and feeling that with these classes behind me I’ll be able to do just that.
