If you’re one of the lucky ones to be genetically blessed with an oval-shaped face, we’ve got good news: THE WORLD OF SUNGLASSES IS YOUR OYSTER!
Any frame is going to look good on you – because basically your symmetrical bone structure is what people are generally striving to emulate when they’re choosing their sunnies.
However, we said we would give you advice, not just tell you how beautiful you are – and we have a few suggestions to ensure that the frames on your face feel as natural as a cup of tea and a biscuit.
We would suggest a frame that is slightly more on the wide side. Rectangle shaped frames often look fantastic on oval shaped faces, the horizontal style complementing the vertical nature of an oval face. Conversely, a narrow frame can draw attention to a narrow eye line, so perhaps something to steer away from. However, let’s be honest, we’re being pretty picky here. Pretty much anything goes style-wise, so perhaps get playful with the lenses and colours if you want to stand out from the crowds.
LET’S TALK HAIR
Not to be overlooked, your hair should certainly be ‘ruled in’ to your decision-making process. For example, long wavy hair will already be helping to soften your features which may well suggest the need for a more angular frame, whilst on the flip-side short hairstyles will tend to lead you in the direction of sunnies that soften and therefore counterbalance your more defined features.
OUR RECOMMENDATION FOR THE GENETICALLY BLESSED
To be honest, we’ll throw the you the keys to the shop and let you browse at will – there aren’t any styles that in truth wouldn’t work (although we’ve yet to see any male customers of our cat eye styles… yet!) So, think about your preferences for colour and style to suit your personality and see if we have any flavours that suit your taste.
