For me, sunglasses are the hardest items to shop for so today I want to talk about how to find the right pair to flatter your face shape. Everyone needs a pair of great sunglasses. They’re not only a fashion accessory but also protect your eyes and get used nearly every day so it’s worth investing in a solid pair or two.
First off, you’ll need to figure out what shape your face is. The four most common face types are: oval face, round face, heart face and square face. Next, you’ll want to find a pair of sunglasses that fit your shape perfectly. Here’s how to measure:
It’s a must to try on many different sunglass frames to make sure they are comfortable, stay on your nose bridge well, don’t touch your lashes, etc… When shopping for sunglasses, I personally like to order online so I can try them on at home verses in store, that way I don’t make an impulse purchase and end up with the wrong pair. That’s why I always order from Nordstrom! Duh – it’s so easy, I can browse in my jammies, get free shipping and returns? Yes, please and thank you!
Here are my suggestions for each face shape:(click on ANY sunglasses below to start shopping)
Let’s talk about these Tory Burch sunglasses shall we? Umm…they are AMAZING! Like I said, sunglasses are probably one of the most difficult things to shop for. I don’t have the tallest nose bridge and have a pretty small face so my sunglass search is like finding a needle in a haystack. I’ve tried countless brands and styles and these Tory Burch frames are one of my favorites!
They are oversized (which I wanted) and stay in place without sliding down my nose (score and score). The quality is really nice, feel very sturdy, and are made of acetate and are not cheap plastic like the majority of popular sunglasses.
These have a cat-eye frame with polarized lenses that protects against glare and sharpens your view. Like I previously mentioned, you’ll want to pay a little more to invest in quality sunglasses that will last you a long time and these are definitely worth the cost. They come in black or tortoise and you can buy them right HERE.
I think sunglasses are the perfect gift for this Holiday season as nearly everyone will appreciate and will actually use. I love that you can easily order on Nordstrom with free shipping (no minimum) and free returns ALL THE TIME. They make it SO easy and remove all of the risk – what’s not to love?
