The Best Sunglasses For Your Face
Find the shades that really look ideal on your face — before you dole out 200 bucks
By Nick Dimengo
Ever wonder exactly why it is that some sunglasses look good on you, and others make you look like a total goofball?
Generally, it has little to do with how much you spend on the glasses — price is more of a factor in determining durability and quality of eye protection. How a pair on sunglasses looks on your face mostly has to do with, well, your face.
Read on to find out which shades looks best with your particular face shape.
SUNGLASSES FOR GUYS WHO HAVE A … SQUARE FACE
It’s angular with a strong jaw line, broad forehead, and square chin, like Brad Pitt’s. And no, having a square face does not mean you can now tell people you look like Brad Pitt.
Your Style: Anything with oval or round frames. They’ll accent a strong jaw line, whereas square or geometric frames would make you look like your face is just a bunch of sharp angles.
First pick: Ray-Ban Wayfarers ($120 @ Amazon.com)
