Let me start by negating the norm of choosing sunglasses based on the shape of your face.
Sunglasses are actually supposed to cover the "sweet spot of your eye". And it's more about your preference, style, vibe that you're going for. All it should do is give you sun protection and well, look good on your face. Don't follow the norms that a round sunglasses won't suit a square face. Hell it does! Have a look.
If we go by the norms of face shape, then all these celebrities are actually wearing wrong shpaes of eyewear for their faces. But it's actually suiting each one of them. So the norm is actually bullshit!
Then how to choose perfect eyewear?
Simple, just keep two things in mind, the lenses should cover your eyewear sweet spot and adjust the frame size according to your head and style preference.
1.What is an eyewear sweet spot
This diagram shows an eyeglass, sunglasses usually have a bigger look, than optical frames.
So it should cover the sweet spot in terms of protection from sunlight and field of view.
Buying frames with lenses within this sweet spot lets you know the frame fits.
Frames in your sweet spot are the most flattering.They’re not too small or too big, they’re just right.
But again as a style preference you can go for eyewear that will fall beyond your sweet spot, just make sure it doesn't fall under the sweetspot as it will not serve the purpose of sun protection and also it will obstruct the view.
2.Adjust the frame style based on your head size or style preference
Rounded frames are a safe bet, but don’t let the recommendation stop you from exploring. In fact, it might be better to try out different styles based on your head size.
Larger heads might need larger lenses, since their features are further apart. This means that square frames could be a better option as the lenses tend to be larger.
You can opt for a square frame because you like the style better. This goes for any other style, from aviators to shields.
As long as you find one that fits your sweet spot, it’ll have the best proportions for your face.
To sum it up
1.Don’t worry about arbitrary face shape rules.They seem to be made up, and don’t hold up in practice.
2.Look for sunglasses that fit your “Eyewear Sweet Spot.” This will result in glasses with the most flattering size, giving you ample sun protection and field of view.
3. Select a frame based on your style and preference. Selection of eyewear should be based on its utility and your sense of style.
