LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT PAIR OF SUNGLASSES?

We know it can be difficult to pick the perfect pair of sunglasses for your face shape. Our mini-guide will help you find which pair of sunglasses is right for your particular face shape.

Our guide to determining your face shape. You’ll need to write the different measurements down and have a measuring tape handy.

  1. Start by measuring your forehead using the measuring tape. Start from the peak of one eyebrow arch to the opposite one.
  2. Now measure from your upper cheek from one side to the other. The measuring tape should cross your face from one side to the other.
  3. Measure your jawline across your face at its widest. Usually, this point is a little under your ears.
  4. Lastly, measure your face length. Start measuring from the hairline and end at the tip of your chin.

Based on your numbers, note which is the largest and use that to determine which face shape you have.

 

ROUND FACE SHAPE

Usually, a round face shape has a larger forehead and jawline, which should be more or less the same measurement. If you have a round face shape your cheekbones and face length should be around the same measurement as well.

For a round face shape, what is key is how you want to frame your face. If you wish to highlight your face shape, then go for a round frame like our NESIA model. If you want to minimize the round look, you should go after a square or rectangular design. Here we can recommend ÆGIR or PASHA.


DIAMOND FACE SHAPE

With a diamond face shape, you will typically have a narrow forehead and small chin. Your cheekbones will be the widest part of your face and sit nice and high.

For a diamond face, we would recommend ÆGIR, which is a classic model. It is a bit robust but will match with anything. For a more subtle look, you could also go with PASHA. A square design will complement a narrow chin.


SQUARE FACE SHAPE

This one is easy, if all your measurements are alike and your jaw is sharp, you probably have a square face shape.

For a square face, we recommend either NESIA or KAI, since a round frame compliments a square face shape best. NESIA is a slightly oversized model with round edges. KAI has a smaller design and is semi-round.


OVAL FACE SHAPE

Your forehead is larger than the jawline and your jaw should be a bit round The face length should be larger than the width of the cheekbones, for oval face shapes.

For an oval face shape, we recommend our model PASHA, which has a fairly oversized look and a little round shape. But most sunglasses look good on oval face shapes.
