Your Guide to Choosing the Perfect Pair of Sunglasses, High Point, North Carolina

Selecting a snazzy pair of sunglasses isn’t as simple as it might appear. In addition to trends, budget, and personal taste, shoppers must consider a wide array of factors when eyeing a new set of shades. Below, the experts at Optics Eyewear in High Point, NC, outline some tips and tricks to help you find the perfect pair.  

Frame Size

eye wearShopping for sunglasses is similar to shopping for a pair of jeans—the better they fit, the better they look. As such, it’s important to determine your frame size before hitting the racks. If you have a pair of glasses, whether prescription or otherwise, that fits you, get the sizing and go from there. In most cases, the frame size will be printed inside on one of the arms.

Face Shape

The shape of your face plays a major role in the type of sunglasses you should consider. While you’re certainly free to experiment with styles, if you’re looking for something flattering, the following guide will get you pointed in the right direction:

  • Round: A round face is narrow at the jawline and forehead and wide across the cheekbones. In general, round faces work best with bold angle frames, such as wingtips, cat eyes, and rectangular shapes.

  • Square: If you have a wide forehead, strong jaw, and wide cheekbones, you probably have a square face. Keep your eyes peeled for curved styles, such as round, browline, and oval frames.

  • Heart: Heart faces are characterized by a narrow jaw. Look for frames with a deep base that are wider than your brow, such as cat eyes and Aviator® sunglasses.

  • Oval: If you have an oval face, you’re in luck; as the most versatile face shape, you can pull off almost any style. Experiment to your heart’s content, paying special mind to proportion.
