New Delhi: You definitely need shade for your sensitive eyes in this blazing summer. We are here to help you out because it is very important to choose a sunglass which gives you both, style and soothing effect to eyes. Here we are discussing about the sunglasses which goes best with your face.
And unlike trends, your face -- of which there are five basic shapes -- is here to stay. Here’s each kind of mug along with which kind of frames look best.
“Remember this mantra: Round glasses on a round face only make your face appear even rounder,” says expert. Instead, look for boxy or rectangular frames to introduce some lines and angularity to your face.

If you have a prominent jawline, you want to draw attention to the top part of your face (and away from the bottom -- the widest part). “Look for top-heavy frames with some curves to help soften and balance your face,” says Moscot (co-owner of Manhattan’s famed 90-year-old Sol Moscot Opticians). Square-faced men can’t go wrong with Aviators.

You want to visually offset the length of your face, so choose a shape that covers as much of the space between the top and bottom of your nose as possible (known as a deep frame). “And absolutely stay away from small or geometrical frames,” says Moscot. “They’ll make your face look even longer than it is.”Try: Prada Linea Rossa | Polo Ralph Lauren 3039J
“Offset a wide forehead and cheekbones with rimless narrow frames,” says Moscot. They’ll draw attention away from the narrowing of your face (downward toward your chin) and prevent the top half of your face from looking bigger.

Downplay a strong chin and jaw with semi-rimless or top-heavy frames. “They create an optical illusion by drawing the eye up toward the top of your face and away from the widest part, the bottom,” says Moscot.
