The Nora’s Short Guide to Men’s Sunglasses

The Nora’s Short Guide to Men’s SunglassesLooking for the right shades that offer functionality and style?

To make your shopping experience easier, your friendly Italian fashion online store provides you with some helpful information on how you can choose the best sunglasses to suit your face.

Sunglasses for Men

For men, the right sunglasses work to enhance the lines of their face while striking the right balance with their sense of style. As such, the styles available for men are designed to let their natural features shine through.

Square Face

Strong jaw line and wide cheekbones are markers of a square face shape. For these types of faces, the best style of sunglasses to suit them would be the aviator style, as the bigger frames are made for such faces. While rectangular faces should stick with sunglasses that have a softer edge to make their features look softer as well.

Round Face

Round faces need definition. For that, you need a frame that makes your cheeks appear slimmer but your temples appear wider. Never wear sunglasses that mimic the shape of your face as they will only draw out the shape. Opt for more solid styles to create a finer silhouette for your face.

Oblong Face

Oblong faces call for balance, so stay away from those frames which appear larger than the widest part of your face. For oblong faces, using square or round frames adds symmetry, but make sure that you use larger styles as smaller frames can make your features look small as well. Oblong faces can be very tricky to buy for, so when you do shop, keep an eye on the right size as well otherwise you might look like you’re wearing someone else’s glasses.

Diamond Face

Much like a woman’s heart shaped face; the diamond face is defined by wide cheekbones, a wide forehead and a defined chin. For these faces, try to go with colorful and rectangular styles to bring more of an edge to your looks. Strong colors are also a good option as they can help detail the softer parts of your face and draw attention away from your strong chin.

Oval Faces

The luckiest of all face shapes, oval faces have the fortune to experiment with multiple styles since almost every frame can suit them. Whether you’re looking for large or small frames, you can choose any in every color as long as you know which accentuate your features enough that they bring definition to your face.

BONUS TIP: When choosing colors for your sunglasses, take your hair color and skin tone into account as well so that you can inject some individuality into your decision.

One of the things that can irk even the most patient of sunglass-wearers is not knowing what style of glasses suits them. But with this to-the-point guide, we hope that you will be able to get the perfect frame to accentuate your face. So click here to start browsing our selection of sunglasses and get buying!
