How To Pick Female Sunglasses For Your Face Type

Summer is drawing to a close, but it’s too early to put the sunglasses in the drawer. Therefore, today we decided to figure out how to choose sunglasses specifically for your face shape. 

The shape of the face is generally a very important criterion when choosing many of the main components of the female image: glasses, hats, hairstyles, makeup. The correct definition of the face shape helps harmoniously create your style in accordance with the natural features of the appearance. Glasses are more than just a stylish summer accessory, they protect our eyes from sun radiation, harmoniously complement the image, and reduce fatigue. Unless, of course, you pick them right.

Round face

The task is to visually lengthen the face, so you’d better pick frames of a dark color. They narrow the face and make it look more oval. To balance the proportions of your face, choose a frame with a width greater than height.
