Sunglasses can frame your face like nothing else can. Apart from their obvious utility as a protection against the scorching sun, they add class and elegance to any look. However, selecting the right one can get a tad confusing given the dazzling array of sunglasses on offer nowadays. Listed here are the 4 things that you must keep in mind when choosing the right sunglasses.

1. Size of your face

The thumb rule for size of the sunglasses is basic common sense. Smaller the face, smaller the sunglasses and vice versa. Of course, there are fashion trends that intervene, what with big sunglasses being in vogue right now. But while assessing just how big, keep the size of your face in mind.

2. Shape of your face

The shape of your face is a very important deciding factor while choosing sunglasses. This is because sunglasses can accentuate your good features and hide the bad. In this regard, oval shaped faces are very lucky as any of kind of frame go well with them. These are the people who can experiment with the latest frame shapes without worrying too much. Round faced people should go in for angular or rectangular styles that will make their face appear longer and thinner. Classic oval shape frames work best with square faces, while round glasses go with an oblong face.

3. Skin color

Skin color also plays a part in choosing the right sunglasses. People with a pale complexion should go for frames that are light in weight and are of lighter subtle shades like pink or mauve. Darker complexion works best with metallic colors like gold or silver or other rich colors. Black is a color that can go with all kinds of skin tones, but here caution must be exercised so as to balance the weight of the frame with the color so as to ensure it does not look too overbearing on the face.

4. Your hair type

Coming to the question of your hair type. Soft and curly hair will look great with rimless frames. If you like to wear your hair short or very short, then geometric shapes or frames with bold colors and designs can give you a very bohemian look. Absolutely straight hair will go well with round frames. However if completely edgy is your style, then you can go with rectangular shapes to accentuate the look.
