- SQUARE faces - you can wear Cateye or Rounded shades.
- OVAL faces - lucky you! Any sunglasses shape will look good on you.
- HEART faces - you can wear Cateye, Round, or Wayfarers.
- ROUND faces - Oversized Cateye shades for the win
So now I generally stick to cateye shapes and oversized shades. Its a big NO NO for me to wear round shades. I've tried it and felt I looked weird.
|Round Oversized Shades. Not wearing that again! I look like a bug. XP
Now I'm not saying that if you don't follow this you will look silly in other shaped shades. I'm just saying that before you buy a pair of sunglasses, try it out first. You have to see yourself in the mirror wearing it and not just order it online or buy it off the rack coz it looks pretty. Some people like to defy the norm and still wear sunnies that isn't flattering to their face shape. Well as long as you think you can pull it off then go for it. XD I mucked it out on my own even if it was unflattering. But I eventually I ended up buying shades that would suit my face shape. Ordering online can be tough coz you take the risk that it might not suit you. The best bet is to choose the shape that you already know fits you. Or better yet, try Firmoo!
If you have been online as much as I have and have been reading blogs, I bet you've heard about Firmoo already. Firmoo is an online optical store that offers a lot of stylish eyewear all over the world. One thing I appreciate about Firmoo is that you can virtually fit the glasses or sunnies that you wanna try. You also have the option to choose the frame by shape, material, or frame. There is a whole different section for sunglasses as well.

Anyway, I won this Firmoo shades at a giveaway contest last year. They let me choose the shades that I want and of course I chose PURPLE (lol) and OVERSIZED shades. I got the item a bit late (tapos na ang summer! :P) so was only able to wear it a few times. Love it!
