Hats and Sunglasses That Flatter Your Face Shape
Ward off the sun with a good ‘ol hat and fair of stunning shades. This article shows you how to make the right choices.
Hat: You can wear almost any hat shape. However, full hats with a large brim are best bet. For petite girls, opt for smaller brims.
Sunglasses: Try varying sized oval shapes that are as broad as or broader than your cheekbones.
Hat: To add length to your face, opt for a hat with a square-ish crown and an asymmetrical brim, such as a fedora hat or a pageboy cap. Stay away from flowerpot and bucket hats.
Sunglasses: Go for rectangular shapes to make your face appear longer and thinner.
Hat: Soften square edges by choosing a cap with an asymmetrical brim and an adorned crown placed at a slant. Try a beret, fedora hat or a pageboy cap. Also try putting earrings when wearing hats to soften the sharp jaw line.
Sunglasses: Choose frames wider than the widest part of your face in horizontal or oval shapes. Try a pair of over-sized shades. Look for styles with special details at the top and at the bottom curve to draw focus away from the jaw line.
Hat: Go for a bucket hat or baseball cap. Hair should be tucked behind the ears or gathered at low pony to cut the long vertical visual. Also, avoid tall hats.
Sunglasses: Make your face appear shorter or wider by going for frames with strong horizontal lines or round, deep or low triangle shapes. Avoid over-sized sunglasses as they will only emphasize a narrow face.
Hat: Emphasize your eyes and draw focus away from the jaw line by wearing a hat with a short, uneven brim and a stunning crown. A partly hidden face draws the focus directly to the center, which are your eyes. Try a pageboy cap or a fedora hat set at a slant.
Sunglasses: Look for square-ish shapes with details at the top of the frame. Pick aviator styles with a straight top to add width to the forehead and soften the lines of the cheeks and chin.
Hat: Draw attention upwards by choosing a hat that sits high on the head and has eye-catching prints or trimmings. Go for a trucker hat or a cowboy hat. Add character by adorning it with a corsage or a pin, or pearls or ribbons.
Sunglasses: Look for styles with a rounded top and a square bottom. Aviators are a good choice. Also opt for rimless styles with light lenses to soften the width at the eye line.
