This Guide will explain all the relevant factors for choosing your perfect pair of sunglasses.
Determining your face shape
To determine your face shape there are a few simple tricks that we will show you.
Of all the face shapes out there, there are 9 most common face shapes. The easiest way to determine yours is to draw a silhouet of your face on a mirror.
What is even more important for sunglasses is to determine if your face is angular or soft.
✓ Square, rectangular, inverted triangular, diamond, heart and most oval faces fall into angular.
✓ Triangular, oblong, round and some oval will fall into soft.
At our product pages you can find the easy symbols that indicate the size and recommended faceshape of the sunglasses.
How we communicate
Through easy symbols we show you the shapes and sizes, but we're not using all the face shapes.
We use 4 main shapes: Heart, Oval, Square and Round. We do this because shapes are common for your sunglasses decision.
✓ Heart shape is wide at forehead and gradually narrows down to the jaw
✓ Round shape has wide cheekbones and equally wide jaw and forehead.
✓ Square shape had equally wide forehead, cheekbones and jaw.
✓ Oval shape has wide cheekbones that narrow at forhead and jaw.

Determining your sunglasses size
Theres a simple trick to measure your face size, which we'd like to call the creditcard method.
To measure your face size, place the edge of the creditcard on the middle of your nose.
✓ If the card extends over the eye, you need small sunglasses.
✓ If the card ends at the tip of your eyes, you need medium sunglasses.
✓If the cards edge finishes before the end of your eyes, you need large sunglasses.
How to complement your face shape
Now that you have determined what your face shape and size is, we want to learn you about complementing your face with sunglasses.
For every face shape we have a recommendation that will fit best.
✓ Soft round faces look best with frames that have sharp angles.
✓ Angled square faces look best with round or oval frames.
✓ Heart shaped faces look best with frames that are wider at the bottom.
✓ Oval faces look great with any type of frame.
You now know how to choose a fitting pair of sunglasses that fits your face shape and size. Next up is the color that goes best with your skin tone, eye and hair color.
First determine if you have a cool or warm skin tone.
