Your face shape plays a key role in deciding what kind of frame suits you best, but we all know that finding the right sunglasses for your face shape and proportions isn’t always easy.
Following on from my previous post, where I tried to give some advice for knowing what your face shape is, today I’m going to focus on square-shaped faces.
Square-shaped faces have a proportional height and width. They are characterised by a strong jaw, a square chin and a broad forehead. If you are reading this, you probably have an angular or square face, but who else can be recognised as having a one?
Who has a square face shape?
Keira Knightley, Sandra Bullock, Angelina Jolie and Paris Hilton.
Because your features are strong, you want to go for soft and round frames to help balance the angles of the face and give an illusion of a longer face. You should avoid choosing square or geometric sunglasses which would highlight your angular features.
G-Star Raw 106S
My recommended shades for you are the fabulous G-Star Raw 106S. These round-rimmed sunglasses have a distinctive resemblance to the classic aviator style. They look wonderful in square-shaped faces and are an unusual but a smart choice for only £100!
For only £85, the Diesel DL0083 are another bargain which will help you achieve the most sophisticated look this year. A contemporary version of the cat-eye, you can choose from four stunning colour combinations to be sure to find the perfect one for you.
Just Cavalli JC490S
This is another pair of stylish, yet casual sunglasses by Just Cavalli. With an elegant round frame, smartly combined with a fine cat-eye touch, this is the perfect accessory for square-shaped faces. The price tag is another advantage as they are just above £75!
Radley RDS Marnie RX
Fans of vintage clothing and the fifties will love this exquisite pair of sunglasses by Radley. The raspberry pastel colour is easy to combine with most colour ranges and the fact that they can also be prescription glasses make them a great choice for those who prefer to wear glasses to contact lenses. Oh, yes, and they are just £80!
