Cloos Guide: How To Pick The Perfect Sunglasses for Your Face Shape
A great pair of sunglasses can instantly improve your look — but that is, however, on condition that the frames fit your face correctly. The trick, of course, is knowing how to tell if the pair is right for your particular face shape. The Cloos Collection consists only of timeless and classic frames, designed to fitting almost all head shapes, but it can still be hard choosing the right one. Therefore, this journal is dedicated to giving you a guide to how pick the perfect pair of Cloos sunglasses for you.
But don't worry! All you have to do is to keep the following two general rules in mind:
- Invest in pair with a classic shape so that you can keep wearing them for many years.
- Find a frame that complements your face shape. The general rule is the that shape of your sunglasses should be opposite of your face shape.
Round face shape
You have a round face if...
- The face's length and width is almost identical
- Small rounded chin without sharp angles
- The hairline is smooth and rounded
Look for sunglasses that... are rectangular, which will give the illusion that your face is more angular than it is. Your task is to visually lengthen your face. To balance your facial proportions, choose a frame where the width is greater than the height.

Square face shape
You have a square face if...
- The jaw is strong, defined and almost the same width as your forehead
- The chin is broad an angular
- The hairline is almost straight
Look for sunglasses that... have rounded frames. A round and more soft frame will help to visually balance and soften overall facial proportions.

Oval face shape
You have an oval face if...
- The face's length is slightly longer than the width
- This chin is rounded
- The cheekbones form the widest sections of the face
Look for sunglasses that... will break up your face, and make your face look more proportional in terms of width to length. Therefore, you should avoid glasses that look too massive and extend past the widest part of the face. Preferably, the frame should be just as wide as your face. Make sure that the frame’s upper part is in line with your eyebrows.

The perfect color
Just like having the right frame to help balance the shape of your face, the color of the glasses and lenses should do the same for your skin and hair color. The key is to find glasses that bring out the natural undertones in your skin and hair.
If you have lighter tones... go wither darker shades to ensure some contrast in your look. We suggest the colors "Espresso", "Bourbon" or "Noire".
If you have darker tones... you need make sure you’re making allowances for the beautiful undertones that will complement your sunglasses. Try going for light or transparent shades like "On The Rocks" or "Champagne".
