WHAT’S YOUR SHAPE?
OVAL – The balanced proportions of the oval face means you can wear just about any frame shape.
An oval-shaped face is characterized by balanced proportions, a narrow forehead and jaw line, a chin that is slightly narrower than the forehead, and typically high cheekbones.
SQUARE – Square faces are angular, try round or oval frames to soften and add contrast to the face.
Square-shaped faces are usually proportional in length and width. They are characterized by a strong, prominent jaw line, square chin and broad, deep forehead.
ROUND – With a round face you should try angular frames to help add definition.
A rounder face has an equal width and length and is characterized by soft curves with few angles, if any.
HEART – Heart-shaped faces can be a bit more challenging to fit, it’s important to have fun and experiment with a variety of frame shapes to find the perfect look for you.
A heart-shaped face is characterized by a wide forehead, narrower jaw line, high cheekbones and a narrow chin.
Personally, I admire RAY BAN shades. They are simple, chic and unisex. If you don’t wear shades often but you do wear glasses you can do what I do; as I wear prescription glasses also, buy your ideal shades and take them to an optical shop. There you can have your prescription lenses put into the frames and wear them to go. It’s the perfect way to have funky frames that are useful for you as well.
Of course, personal style and expression triumphs over all. So if you love it, then wear it!

I used to have a box of shades. Now ask me where all my shades go. I got to get back on my shade game for the summer cause you making it look hot!!
Actually Ally, I saw these cool neon shades in Aldo’s (the shoe store). If you do find a pair of neon shades that you like I would love it if you can send me a picture, I can do a post about it 🙂
Thanks for stopping by, don’t be a stranger.
Oh my gosh! A girl can never have too many shades. My goal for this year is to find a neon pair.
