A Kyme sunglasses face shape guide

Types of sunglasses for face shape

When we choose a new pair of sunglasses, we often ask ourself which one is best for our face type: should I stick to the shape I already have and I know it fits me well or shall I take the risk and buy a different shape?

The answer is: dare and buy a new shape!! Why? Because there are several shapes that can fit all kind of face types, even if we think the opposite. We read a lot of articles saying that sunglasses are related to face shapes, but this is parcially true. In this sunglasses face shape guide we want to give you an additional insight. It’s actually much simple than that, it’s more about sizes and proportions.
