04.08.2015 + Upper Canada Mall + No Comments

With the warm weather in full swing getting dressed in the morning is a breeze, but you’re never fully dressed without a pair of great shades! While protecting your eyes from the pesky sun is priority number 1, you might as well look good doing it.

Different activities call for different types of sunnies. We mean, you wouldn’t just wear one pair of shoes all the time? We have the frame shapes that best suit your face, so take note and stock up, that squinty-eyed look is best left to supermodels.

Oval face style guide


Bold, distinctive features make you a head turner. With a prominent forehead and strong jawline, curves look great on square faces. Stick to rounder shapes like cat eye and butterfly for women, these Ralph Lauren cat eyes are one of the hottest frame shape’s this summer! Men can go for sportier styles in oval frames and pilots. Semi-rimless frames, like the Maui Jim’s Manu, work well for both as it accentuates eyes and balances a striking jawline.

With an oval face shape you can pull off just about any look. Rectangle frames work best as they are horizontal and balance an oval face’s vertical, while upswept styles really highlight your amazing cheekbones and shield frames offer better coverage. Go bold this summer with a Dior Audacieuse from EyeStar Optical.

Round faces generally possess a height and width that are roughly equivalent. To add a more distinguished look that will elongate your face, offset the contours of your facial features with geometric shapes like horizontal frames, Wayfarers and rectangular shapes. These Gucci two-tone shades are just what you need to hit up the beach! Find them at EyeStar Optical.

A heart shape face is just so lovely (handsome!). Your broader brow and narrow chin is fantastically suited for frames that elongate your face, even out proportions or direct attention downwards. We recommend light-coloured frames, frames with thin temples and frames with exaggerated bottoms. Invest in a great pair of classics, like these Fendi aviators from EyeStar Optical.
