Shades with shapes: The different sunglasses styles you need to know
In Singapore, a good pair of sunglasses is just as important as an effective sunscreen. Apart from blocking out the harmful UV rays around your eye region (that doesn’t mean you can stare directly into the sun), a pair of sunglasses will help to prevent you from squinting too much, and henceforth eliminating the risk of getting crow’s feet.
Whether you’re a fan of the classic aviators or sleek cat-eyed, here’s our guide to wearing different sunglasses for your face shape.
Women who have a diamond face shape generally suits almost every type of sunnies. However, we’d recommend the Clubmaster as they are small in width, which would help to taper down your wider cheekbones.
The shield is another sunglasses style that would suit women with heart or inverted triangle features. It’ll help to broaden your cheekbone region, making your overall facial silhouette more proportionate.
Initiated and popularised by Ray-Ban, the Wayfarer comes in different shapes. Some can be round, while others can be more oblong. If you sport rounder features, opt for a rectangular Wayfarer, and vice versa.
