Sunglasses are an essential part of the celebrity look, adding a touch of privacy while staying glam.
And to replicate your favourite star’s style, it’s all about your face shape.
Experts at the watch and sunglasses specialist, Tic Watches, have identified the face shapes of famous figures and the sunglasses that suit them best, so people can add a bit of A-list flair to their own look this summer.
Oval-shaped face like Kate Middleton – choose rectangular glasses
People with oval faces, like Kate Middleton, suit all kinds of sunglasses, but a look that works particularly well for their face shape is rectangular frames.
Your face is probably longer than others, so wide oblong frames provide a nice contrast.
Triangular face like Chloë Grace Moretz – go for clubmaster glasses
Clubmaster shades are a popular choice for many, but the style is particularly recommended for people with triangular face shapes, like Chloë Grace Moretz, who have foreheads that are narrower than their jawline.
This is because clubmasters have more design features at the top than the bottom, helping to minimise the width of the jaw and draw attention to your eyes.
Diamond-shaped face like Jennifer Lopez – opt for horn-rimmed glasses
Diamond face shapes go perfectly with horn-rimmed glasses.
People with this shape, like Jennifer Lopez, are likely to have faces that are widest in the middle, so embrace the vintage 60s feel and allow the thick-rimmed frames to help you stand out this summer.
Oblong face like Sarah Jessica Parker – choose oval glasses
For people with oblong faces, like Sarah Jessica Parker, the smooth curves of oval frames are great for balancing angular features.
The round edges contrast perfectly with your strong jawline to create a streamlined look.
For women, consider oversized sunglasses to make a long face appear shorter.
Square face like Miranda Kerr – go for round glasses
If you have a square face, like Miranda Kerr, classic round shades will perfectly complement your strong facial features.
With your face being as wide as it is long, consider smaller, narrow styles as they help to make it look longer.
Round face like Chrissy Teigen – opt for square glasses
People with round faces, like Chrissy Teigen, tend to have soft features. To balance these, opt for a bold square frame.
The strong angles can make you look more expressive. To make your face appear a little longer, consider sunglasses that are on the wider side.
Heart-shaped face like Naomi Campbell – choose aviator glasses
Heart-shaped faces are widest at the top, with a narrower chin, and therefore these people, like Naomi Campbell, match perfectly with aviator shades.
Aviators have bottom-heavy frames so help to balance a heart face. This iconic style suits both men and women equally well, with a variety of colours and tints to suit any shape or facial features.
Danny Richmond, Managing Director of Tic Watches, said: “Whether they’re sunbathing in the garden or planning ahead for post-lockdown holidays, many people are looking for new sunglasses at the moment.
We often turn to our favourite celebrities for style inspiration, but it can be hard to choose the right pair for our face, particularly when shopping online.
“Hopefully our guide will help people find the frames that are right for them.
We’ve also created an online quiz where people can answer a few questions about their features and style preferences and be matched with their perfect frames.”
