It’s important to know which sunglasses are the most flattering for your look -no matter what look you’re going for. So if you’re looking for what sunglasses look great for your face shape or what sunglasses are matching your outfit, take a look at these flattering frames.
Tip 1: Know Your Face Shape
One of the best ways to select the most flattering frames is to know what face shape you have and what kind of frames look good on that face shape. Round faces, for instance, need square frames or aviators to introduce angles. Square faces need round frames or aviators to soften the look. Heart-shaped faces need a lot of focus high up to look less top-heavy, so the ideal frame is the cat eye. Oval face shapes like Kate Hudson’s (below) look great in almost any sunglasses frames, but it’s best to stick to aviators like these bamboo aviators from Gucci or these square Versace frames.
Tip 2: Be Conscious of Color
Readers of People Style Watch and Us Magazine are going crazy with desire for Gwen Stefani’s recent look. They want the boots, they want the sweater, and they want the frames. Why are the frames so great? Because her speckled frames perfectly match in color to her sweater. Be conscious of color: pick some really funky, colorful frames, and then pick a bold piece that draws out that color.
Tip 3: Go Vintage
Whether you need to rely on Ray Ban’s Wayfarers or if you’re willing to try a Tom Ford cat-eye, the most flattering sunglasses for your 2014 look involves throwback style. You can look like a pin-up princess or you can look like a retro rocker -it’s up to you, but whatever you choose, go vintage chic for a classy look.
