The annual rummaging for sunglasses reminds me that I am turning into my parents. I rush around the house, slipping and sliding in a sluice of sunscreen, shouting 'Has anybody seen my glasses? The blasted sun could disappear at any second and I can't go out with my SUNGLASSES'.
Sometimes the Shade Gods direct me to the handbag that contains the missing item, and sometimes they do not. So I wrestle with the decision - should I buy a cheap pair that won't cause me to have a little heart attack if they disappear down the back of the couch, never to be seen again, or should I follow my heart and buy that expensive but-oh-so-gorgeous pair that I've had my eye on for weeks?
Today we've put together a selection that will cover all budgets and face shapes (literally).
The four main face shapes are oval, round, heart and square (if you're not sure which one you are, stand in front of the foggy mirror next time you jump out of the shower and trace the outline of your face in the mirror with your finger).
- Oval - This face shape can pretty much carry off all types of sunglasses (except Dame Edna's).
- Round - Angular frames with detailing on the top of the lens suit our rounder-faced friends.
- Square - Opt for oval or curved lenses soften features.
- Heart - Choose glasses that add width to the lower part of your face. Larger styles work well but steer clear of glasses that are wide on top.
