Shopping for sunglasses can be HARD. Especially if you're attempting to do it online.
Do they suit you? Do they make your head look massive? Are they meant to sit on your nose that way? The majority of the time we're left with SO many unanswered questions and so much bloody uncertainty that we end up just sacking them off completely and stickin' with the old trusty faithfuls.
But if you learn which kinda frames suit your face shape - then the rest is kinda easy. So we've devised a handy little guide for reference, to help you see which sunnies are best for you.
Square or Round Face
If your face is either square shaped, or round - stick with a more rectangular shaped frame. Go for a more angular type frame if you want to add shape to a round face, or opt for a slightly rounded rectangular shape if you want to soften a square jaw-line.
