Bespoke style advice just for you.
Q. I hate buying sunglasses, I never know what style suits my face shape and I just want a pair that will last.
A. Getting the right pair of sunglasses is no mean feat, given the plethora of different styles out there, but once you know your face shape you’ll have a better understanding of which styles to focus on; in a similar way to clothing, some styles will work better than others on a particular shape.
For example, if you have a heart shaped face you can wear one of this season’s hottest trends, the cat’s eye, as well as a more classic round shape (think 90s style). If your face is oblong in shape look for oversized or wrap styles (very Victoria Beckham). A round face shape can carry off wide, square or angular frames (a key look for Autumn Winter 2013) and an oval face shape (which is considered to be the perfect shape – lucky you) looks great in most styles but looks best in soft angular frames. If you’re looking to make a long term investment then consider the classic Aviator which works well on most face shapes.
