Shopping Tips for Sunglasses

It’s time to get ready for summer, a perfect time to get out of the box and have fun! Sunshine will soon be here in full blast, and we find ourselves constantly knitting our eyebrows or shading our eyes with our hands.

But what better way to protect our eyes than a pair of really cool sunglasses, which add luster to your outfit too? Now is the perfect time to wear sunglasses that make a statement that allow your quirky and creative personality to shine through.

Alas, finding the perfect pair of sunglasses is no easy job. We often find ourselves wasting too much time and trying on tens of different pairs that don’t flatter our face cut – AT ALL. The secret to shopping for sunglasses is to find the shape that complements our face cut. Below, is compiled a list of different geometrics that will hopefully help you in your little quest.

  • Heart shaped face – Cat eye sunglasses with heavy bottoms to avoid attention to your forehead. For example, these Kate Spade New York ‘Kia’ 54mm cat eye sunglasses come in multiple colors and give a sophisticated look.



  • Oblong face – large sized or tall frames that help shorten the face. Try these Marc by Marc Jacobs 58mm polarized sunglasses for optimal protection and full coverage.


  • Round face – any shape other than a round one. You don’t want your face to look like a saucer set!
  • Square face – round or oval frames work here. They will help soften your whole look. For example, these Fantas Eyes NY ‘Lady Luck’ 52mm sunglasses will be a perfect complement for any square face. The clear frame give it a cutting edge, and is paired with blue lens.


You can match the frame color of your sunglasses with bold colored accessories like an overload of jingling bangles or floral headbands! Happy shopping!
