Eye-Catching Frames

Face It: Here's the 411 for rocking the season's hottest shades.

As the face of trendy yet inexpensive sunglass brand Prive Revaux, Hailee Steinfeld rocks the Queen shades, which highlight her oval face.

 

OVAL FACE SHAPE

“Extreme cat-eyes accentuate your cheekbones and balance their horizontal structure,” said Sabine Volcic, director of product assortment at Sunglass Hut.

SQUARE FACE SHAPE

“Oversized, curvy or round frames soften and balance square facial features. Creams and neutral tones soften and subtly frame the face.”

ROUND FACE SHAPE

“Look for rectangular or square shapes — something wider than your face to break up the roundness.”

STYLE OF THE SUMMER

“The flat lens is a new take on the shield style, reinvented with a very sleek, one-dimensional look. It will set you apart in a crowd.”

SABINE’S EXPERT TIPS

Opposites Attract: A general rule is to focus on balancing your proportions and think of opposites. Square face equals round frame.

Clean Carefully: Don’t wipe lenses with a T-shirt; it scratches them, especially after a day at the beach. Use cleaning solution and a microfiber cloth to polish.

Invest in Lenses: Polarized lenses reduce glare, and mirrored lenses block more UV rays than basic tinted lenses.
