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

  • Quick day trip to the island, I took a tip from all of you and wore my lulus in anticipation of a full belly.
  • Cheers to Thanksgiving friends 💫 💕 I’ve been so grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to contribute to 8+ of @ilikeherstylevancouver’s print magazine. They’ve created such a great space for women to connect, inspire and encourage. My last contribution shares how I wear summer dresses & rompers in the fall, and I must say is one of my cutest articles yet. Also big thanks to @juliechristinephotography for capturing such cutie shots I can never pick just one.

You can find the print mag at all their rack locations (see details on website) or online.
  • What a joy it was to go out yesterday and show my support to two ladies who are such incredible women, role models, mamas, creators ... seriously all the things.

Can’t wait to flip through the pages of #fraichefoodfullhearts cookbook and be inspired to make some new things. Such a pleasure to celebrate with you both @jillian.harris & @fraichenutrition — you both radiate love and joy.
  • Our family is growing. Not one, not two, but THREE little GloFish are set up in the girls’ bedroom. I can't get enough of their bright, vibrant colours and the girls love that they have new friends that "keep them company" at night.

We love that #GloFish are Born Brilliant™. This means that their colourful traits pass from one generation to the next. Similar to most freshwater fish, these little fishies are super easy to care for. 
Now all we are missing are their names, please help us out and comment below with your best fishie names.

P.S. The best way to show off the brilliance of your GloFish is with a blue LED light which can be used in both light and dark rooms. Visit @mrpetscanada online or in-store to learn more! *ad #GloFish #mrpetscanada #petfish #GloFishPartner
