How hard can it be to buy a pair of new sunglasses? If it’s as easy as it looks then why is it difficult to get the right pair of sunglasses that will complement your face?
Shopping online has never been easier. As more e-commerce stores spring up, shopping online will be almost like second nature.
You may have a particular style of sunglasses you want in mind but it’s difficult to tell if the sunglasses you find online will be a good fit for you. Or maybe you take the risk and order them anyway and they end up looking odd.
Then what is the best way to buy the perfect pair of sunglasses online? Here are some tips that will help you choose the perfect pair of sunglasses.
Check the product description
Items listed in the online store usually come with product descriptions. A product description gives you the specifications of the item you want to buy. This will help you have a good idea of how sunglasses will fit on your face based on dimensions. Some specifications you should look out for are the size of the sunglasses, the frame width and shape
Check the dimensions in the product description and align the measurements on your face. Take a tape measure to make sure it’s accurate.
Mark out the points on your face
There are a lot of trendy-looking sunglasses you can choose from, but the perfect sunglasses are the ones that complement your face.
The shape of your face should be the one that will determine the shape, size and style of the sunglasses you should buy. That means you need to know the shape of your face.
So then how do you know the shape of your face?
A nifty trick is to stand in front of the mirror with your hair pulled back to get a full view of your face. Next, take a marker to mark your brow line, cheekbones and jawline. These dots will guide you to know the shape of your face.
Draw out the shape of your face
Remember the points you marked on the mirror? Those points will help you know the shape of your face.
Faces can come in 5 shapes: oval, round, square, heart and oblong.
If you have an oval face, the points on your cheekbones are the farthest apart, while the points that mark your jawline and brow line are slightly curved. Ideal frames are trendy and classic as most of the sunglasses frames work well on an oval face.
If you have a round face, the points marking your cheekbones have a large space between them. Unlike the oval-shaped face, the points that mark your jawline and brow line have a stronger and more pronounced curve. So go for the square or round shaped frames.
If you have a square face, the points marking your cheekbones, jawline and brow line are equidistant from each other. In that case the round frames and cat-eyed frames work the best for you.
If you have a heart-shaped face, the points marking your brow line are the ones that are the farthest apart, while the points marking your jawline are the closest to each other. In such a case, rimless styles and aviator glasses will look awesome on you.
If you have an oblong-shaped face, then the space between the points marking your brow line and jawline are the farthest from each other. So the best choice of sunglasses for you is the oversized sunglasses.
