One of the prime accessory for men (especially during summers) is a good pair of sunglasses. A decent pair of shades not only protects your eyes but also finishes off an outfit and creates a statement on its own.

Finding a pair that aptly suits is quite a dilemma at times, but when you find that right pair, it is quite rewarding. Now, while buying a pair of shades what matters the most is your face shape, as your face shape is the prime determinant of what kind of shades suits you the best.

Here’s presenting you a guide that shall come handy when you shop for that perfect pair of shades this season!!

(*I hope you like it!!*)


As a general rule, the shape of your sunglasses must be opposite to the shape of your face so as to soften harsh features or create some definition. So, in case you have a square face, i.e, a strong jaw line and high cheekbones, round frames are your apt pick rather than angular designs with sharp lines.

KEY STYLES: Round frames, Aviators, Clubmasters.


Applying the same rule, men with round face shape should opt for sunglasses that create as much as definition possible. Angular frames help you elongate your temples and lengthen your face and those with a strong brow line makes your cheeks appear slimmer.

Wayfarers, Clubmasters, Square frames.


To bring about a balance in case you have a rectangular face shape, seek out shades that add width to your face shape. Be it round or square frames, make sure you go for larger ones.

KEY STYLES: Wayfarers, Clubmasters, D-Frames.


In case you have an oval face shape, trust me, you are blessed!! You can wear pretty much any kind of shades available. The only thing to be kept in mind is that to avoid frames with arms that hang too low as it will just make your face seem longer.

KEY STYLES: Almost anything. (Duhh!!)


Of all the face shapes, this is a face shape that is the most difficult to frame. It is important to add extra weight to the upper half of the face. Thin-rimmed clubmasters and other round styles are a thumbs up, in case you have a heart shaped face.

KEY STYLES: Round frames, Clubmasters

So that’s it for today!! I hope this post was of some help to you and the next time you shop for a pair shades, you get your hands on that perfect pair which suits you aptly!!

Also, talking about shoping for good sunglasses, Lenskart is no doubt one of the best places to purchase from, online, and that is because they have this amazing try-on feature which makes shopping a lot easier.
