How Find Sunglasses For Your Face
I needed some new sunglasses so I decided to look through some past blog post from evo for ideas and stumbled upon this gem from former evo and now Burton employee Chris Zimmerman…and I found some cool new sunglasses that fit perfectly.
Do you ever finally find a pair of sunglasses that you are so excited about then you put them on and realize that they do not fit your face? At all. Talk about an ultimate letdown. Turns out that face shape really dictates what style of frames look good on you, and more importantly, which ones don’t.
Face shape is one of those things that you don’t want to admit to yourself. Who wants to admit that they have a “square” face? Everyone is different and unique so why would we want to group our face shape in to one of six shapes? Well if you want to get some sunglasses that fit you’ll have to jump that hurdle or you’ll be accenting your square face with square shaped glasses, and that’s no good.
