A lot of us can boast of a collection of glasses that would be the envy of the universe. Some of us have a fairly restrictive one and like it to keep it that way. And a very small section of us men, have a collection that is barely worth accounting for, but in itself it can save and drape our wardrobes into the most classy hues. Such a gathering is worth aiming for. A relatively small but poignant one, your sunglasses should match every mood that your style can produce.
We get you 5 of the trendiest glass loves matching your face shapes!
1. The Bold And The Edgy
Blessed are those who are born with the oval face cut because there are simply no boundaries to accessorizing for them. You can have any eyewear pick you like since your face shape allows space for great experimentation. However, we recommend the solid black Raen Volta or the almost wood- ish Original Penguin Redding. If you prefer something slightly more demure go for the Spitfire Round Glasses.
2. The Wayfarers And The Modern

If you have a round face, prefer frames slightly larger than the width of your face. Rectangular or square shaped ones will work like magic and so will the good old aviators. But for zing we bring you the Ray Ban wayfarers, the Havana reminiscing Persol or the Persol 649s which won’t be fading away anytime soon. Oliver People Bernardo’s are our new favourite.
3. The Woody And The Lennon
Round and rimmed frames with slight acetate rims will fall seamlessly with the heart-shaped face. Worry not about always feeling a bit too delicate as you can always go bold with edgier versions in these frameworks. For starters, go for Shwood Florence, created from maple wood rather than plastic; these extremely round beauties can be dazzlers. If you want something more human, the Lennon glasses are never too old.
4. The Gucci And The Armani
You might shy away from the bold cuts of your square shaped face structure for a while but not for long. The Gucci Bamboo Aviators get you right out of your den and make you a stunner. If you want to head for something more adventurous, try round or oval frames with a heavy acetate rim and edgy colour palettes. Solid metal framework glasses could be your next step. The Armani Exchange Classics are our trending pick for you.
5. The Classic And The Traditional
The key for guys with an oblong face structure is to balance your facial width with the glass frame. They cannot be either too small or too wide. Your face cut requires you to prefer the classical appeal of eyewear and nothing better than aviators come to our minds. The Ray Ban 3025 Aviator can be a daily wear option. For something out of the ordinary, get the Ray Ban CATS 5000.
Choose your sunglasses like you would choose your other alcohol. They are the most visible and centred part of your appearance. Be sure to present yourself as nothing short of a star!
