Identifying Your Face Shape

Your journey to finding the perfect sunglasses starts with understanding your face shape. This is key to selecting frames that balance and harmonize with your facial features. Here’s a simple guide to determine your face shape:

1. Prepare Your Tools: You'll need a flexible tape measure, a mirror, and a notepad to note down your measurements.

2. Measure Away:
  • Forehead: Measure the width of your forehead at its widest part.
  • Cheekbones: Measure across your cheekbones, starting and ending at the pointiest part below the outer corner of each eye.
  • Jawline: Measure from the base of your jawbone (below your ear) to the middle of your chin and double that measurement.
  • Face Length: Measure from the center of your hairline straight down over your nose to the bottom of your chin.

3. Analyze Your Measurements: Compare your measurements to identify your face shape as oval, round, square, heart, or diamond.

Choosing Sunglasses for Your Face Shape

Now that you know your face shape, let’s match you with your perfect sunglasses style:

  • Oval Face: You’re in luck! Most frame shapes work with oval faces. Experiment with the latest trends or classic styles like aviators and wayfarers.
  • Round Face: Aim for square or rectangular frames to add angles and lengthen your face.

  • Square Face: Soften your angular features with round or oval sunglasses. The classic round frames or even pilot styles are great choices.

  • Heart-Shaped Face: Balance your broader forehead and narrow chin with aviator, cat-eye, or round sunglasses.

  • Diamond Face: Highlight your cheekbones and soften your features with oval frames or cat-eye styles.

Tips for a Perfect Sunglasses Fit

  • Size Matters: Ensure your sunglasses are not too wide or too narrow for your face. The frame should sit comfortably on your nose and ears without pinching or slipping.

  • UV Protection: Beyond aesthetics, choose sunglasses that offer 100% UV protection to shield your eyes from harmful rays.

  • Return Policy: We understand the importance of the perfect fit. La Bohème Sunglasses offers a friendly return policy, so you can shop with confidence.
