SHOPPING: SUNNIES FOR ROUND FACES


"As someone who has struggled immensely to find the perfect sunglasses for my especially circular face, I've come to realize the hard truth."

    Listen up all fellow cherub-cheeked fashionistas. Round sunglasses are not your friends. (Sorry!) Let's put it this way: if we were to place small circles in a larger circle, the larger circle would appear to be bloated. Now imagine that larger circle is your face. The goal? To stray from looking like a chipmunk storing up food for the winter. Don't get me wrong; fuller-cheeked women definitely have advantages when it comes to aging. However, it proves to be a frustrating feature to deal with when it comes to choosing the right haircut and sunglasses. 
     As someone who has struggled immensely to find the perfect sunglasses for my especially circular face, I've come to realize the hard truth. Round-faced women need to shop for sunglasses the same way many shop for clothes- you can't tell if it's right for you until you physically try them on. I'll save you the tiresome online returns and shopping-work and give you a simple rule of thumb when it comes to finding a flattering pair: If the frame cuts straight across the bottom, you're all set. Almost any pair of sunglasses that cuts straight across on the lower half will work for you. They slim your features and help create an illusion of higher cheekbones. 
     Here I've gathered a short list of sunglasses that should work out perfectly- for your face shape, mood, and most importantly, your wallet. 
1) The Glamourai - $20 A must-have if you're looking for a quick girly/glam pick-me up. 
2) HUNGOVER AF- $10 Hiding behind reflective lens? We've all been there. Many of the trending ones come in frames that are rounded at the bottom. This one isn't. (and it's on sale!)
3)Insta-worthy- $50 Riiiight next to your coffee... and marble phone case. and ombre hair. 
4) Minimalist- $36 A go-to with a monochrome ensemble.
5) Get Smart $35 Hey- fake it to make it, right?
