For as long as I can remember I have always loved accessories, probably more than clothes with mountains of shoes, bags and even sunglasses piling up in my bedroom! Whilst I'm always buying countless pairs of sunglasses come spring, I often find myself toying with different shapes and styles to find a shape that suits my face best, because lets be honest there's nothing worse than buying a pair of sunglasses to find that the style is very unflattering.
When the lovely folks over at Vision Direct got in touch to let me know about their #MyFaceShapeIs campaign I couldn't wait to get involved. As someone who is guilty of sporting a pair of sunglasses come the slightest hint of sunshine, I know how important it is to choose a style that will compliment your face.
Vision Direct have set up an interactive page to help you determine the perfect pair of sunglasses to suit your style and face shape, and once you've been matched to a style there's even a 20% discount code included - so it's definitely worth taking a look whilst we enjoy the last couple of months of summer!
Naturally I had to check to see what style of sunglasses would suit my face shape, and as someone with an oval face I'm apparently quite lucky when it comes to choosing sunglasses because most of the shapes and styles suit - including round, aviator and cat-eye styles. I have to admit I had never really thought about my face shape before, so it was great to see which category it fell into and finding out which shaped sunglasses suit my frame.
I opted for the American Freshman Plastic and Metal Combination Sunglasses in black, orange and gunmetal (£27.99). I wore these round London last weekend and they are just so comfortable and stylish, there is something about the retro style that I absolutely love and think really flatters my face shape.
I'd love to know what face shape you fall under, and don't forget to check out #myfaceshapeis on Instragram!
