Sunglasses are not only essential for protecting eyes, they’re also perfect for adding an instant shot of chic to your look. With so many styles to choose from and new trends each season, choosing the right pair can be a challenge.
The best way to flatter your features is to choose frames that provide balance and proportion:
Look for frames that are the opposite shape of your face: square frames for a round face, rounded or oval frames for rectangular, square or heart shaped faces.
Crisp angles will balance a fuller face, while curvy frames will soften the sharp lines of a square or rectangular face.
Be sure the frames are in proportion to your face and features: larger frames for a large face (like Michelle Trachtenberg, shown right), smaller frames for delicate features and small faces.
Have fun with colored frames – you will be surprised which shades compliment your complexion.
