How to Buy Fashion Sunglasses that are perfect for my face?


First of all, determine Your Face Shape.The right ones will looking flattering on you by balancing out the shape -- creating a proportional and visually pleasing face shape. Like for example, if you have a wide jaw, wide forehead, round face, long face, etc., the wrong frames will only highlight that.
Second, Decide What Complements Your Face Shape Best
Two rules of thumb when choosing sunglasses for your face shape are:
1) Wear a pair that are of the same size of your face, and
2) Choose a pair with frames that contrast with the shape of your face and facial features
Pay Close Attention to Your Facial Features - you have strong features (strong chin, prominent nose etc.), choose a pair that softens them. Or if you have delicate features ( like a short nose, rounded jaw etc.), choose a shape opposite from it to visually sharpen them a little.

How could I know which sunglass suites me?


Well, here are some advices on how to match your sunglass to your face: 1. Suare face: Most complimentary style of sunglasses for a square face: To minimize the width of the face, it is best to choose sunglasses that add length. This can be best achieved by buying sunglasses that are not as wide as the widest part of your face. It is also a good idea to soften the "squareness" of a face by more fluid, rounded style frames, so as to decrease the perception of a broad jaw line. 2.Oval face-Most complimentary style of sunglasses for an oval shaped face: Generally any type of sunglasses suits an oval face, but just make sure that the size of the frame is proportionate to the face. 3.Round face: Most complimentary style of sunglasses for round shaped face: To sharpen a round face, select frames with straight or angular lines that will help make the face look thinner and longer.
4.Diamond face:Most complimentary style of sunglasses for a diamond shape face: Glasses that are oval, shaped or rimless are very complimentary for this type of face.
5. Rectagle face-Most complimentary style of sunglasses for squar shaped face: To compliment this style of face, it is best to choose sunglasses that will shorten the face and widen the face, both at the same time. The best style of frame to choose is one that is round, or deep to help soften the face.
6.Triangle face-Most complimentary style of sunglasses for a Base-Down Triangle face: To compliment this style of face, it is best to emphasis the top part of your face with strong balancing frames. 7.Inverted triangle-Most complimentary style of sunglasses for an inverted triangle face: Choose a type of frame that balances your face and broadens the lower part of your face. Low temples and rimless style of sunglasses are a good style to consider.

Small sunglasses frames? Help? There are a lot of very large sunglasses frames out there. From chunky wayfarers to super-size aviators, and from massive, futuristic wrap-arounds to hulking celebrity glasses... they all fall off of my face or look completely ridiculous. I look like a little kid playing dress-ups. Are there any small, sleek, metal sunglasses frames out there? Name brand/model/where to buy...


It is rather difficult to answer this question without knowing what your face shape is so I would recommend going to the first link to determine that and get started that way. If there is a style that could be recommended for many it would be the aviator and not the large ones. The second link is to a small aviator in Champaign by Serengeti, it has a 53 eye as you can see in the last link (which is small for sunglasses) and a very attractive look. Other than that the best thing to do is go to a quality sunglass or optical shop and try on everything until you find something you like. If that is not an option there are also several online tryon's where you download an image of yourself and can try on the different frames.
