Flattering Frames

06/07/2013 09:38AM ● Published by Style

THE SHAPE: OVAL

THE SHADES: An oval-shaped face can pull off pretty much any style with its balanced proportions, but wraparound frames can be the best fit. Soft angular frames also play up the shape; just be careful that the frame size is proportional to your face.

Wraparounds, $19.95 at SWAK, 1013 Galleria Boulevard, Suite 190, Roseville. 916-791-7925, shopswak.com.

Wayfarers, $9.99 at Charming CHARLIE, 1005 Galleria Boulevard, Suite 130, Roseville. 916-787-1900, charmingcharlie.com.

 

THE SHAPE: HEART

THE SHADES: To accentuate a heart-shaped face, opt for cat-eye sunglasses; aviator frames also help balance the proportions of a heart-shaped face.

ICU Retro Cat Eye Polarized, $21.95 at icueyewear.com.

Aviators, $9.99 at Charming CHARLIE, 1005 Galleria Boulevard, Suite 130, Roseville. 916-787-1900, charmingcharlie.com.

 

THE SHAPE: ROUND

THE SHADES: Rectangular-shaped sunglasses offset the roundness; oversized sunglasses give your face the illusion of being longer and leaner.

Gucci Large Rectangle Frame with Horsebit Detail on Temples, $345 at Nordstrom, 1131 Galleria Boulevard, Roseville. 916-780-7300, nordstrom.com.

Victorian Trading Company Yellow Square Oversized, $24 at Boulevard de Amelie, 1182 Roseville Parkway, Suite 165, Roseville. 916-787-1606, boulevarddeamelie.com.

 

THE SHAPE: SQUARE

THE SHADES: Round frames add curves to a square face while the rounded edges of cat-eye sunglasses soften the angular planes.
