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

  • Opened up my second Maple Box today and loving the natural and organic products that I am able to discover. The @hollowtree1987 candle and @sealuxe scrub are two of my favourites already.

I’ve loved how each box has introduced me to both self care and wellness products focused on creating healthier lifestyles. Head to @maplemagazinecanada to discover more info on ordering for yourself. Spring box available, while supplies last (and last I heard it was limited) #ad #maplemagazine #mapleboxcanada

  • Looking at the calendar like.... it can't actually be Father's Day this week can it? For anyone still looking for a gift, I have a deal to share! @sodastreamcanada currently has a bundle promotion running on their website until June 16th where you can save $20 when you bundle a FIZZI (your choice of colour), Soda Press Co. Pink Grapefruit flavour and the 'Love Your Planet' Bottle. For everything our Dads do for us, the least we can do is get them a gift we know they’ll love. See direct link in my stories for promotion details!
.
I also created a super yummy drink for you all to try. Inspired by Father's Day, I put together a mixed drink using my SodaStream FIZZI + their Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to create a Pink Grapefruit and Gin Cocktail (or mocktail) recipe. Here's how to make it:

Ingredients:

Flavoured sparkling water using 2 tbsp of the Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour by @sodastreamcanada
1 ounce gin (optional)
Sliced grapefruit
Rosemary Sprigs

Directions:

Use your SodaStream to turn regular tap water into sparkling water in just a few seconds. Once carbonated, add 2 tbsp of SodaStream’s Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to sparkling water and mix. Fill glass to the top with ice. Pour in gin (optional), then fill glass with Pink Grapefruit flavoured sparkling water. Enjoy!
