We have chosen three amazing and stylish glasses for your face shape, but Christopher Cloos Eyewear has an amazing selection for you to browse through.
Square face shape: A square shape face is about as wide as it is long, with a square jawline – not bad look guys.You can easily rock darker frames with a more streamlined silhouette and given your facial angles try looking at rounder lenses, thinner frames and adding some more colour in your frames. Try a little slant or curve more horizontal than vertical streamlining, these are going to be your best bet. Oversized frames can swallow your face up!
Try: A classic square frame in glossy brown like the Mala – Espresso glasses that’s a perfect finishing touch to your long summer days style.
Oval face shape: If you’re blessed with a classic shape you can pretty much get away with wearing anything.

Whether you’re looking to add a cool factor to your everyday street style look or dress up your wardrobe event, a round metal frame with dark gradient lens as sunglasses prove to be a versatile option Oval is the model these funky eyewear is made for.

Round face shape:
Having a lot in common with the square face, dominant characteristics are width equal length, but as you get older this may soften the jawline and turn it around. Try to avoid eyewear that is overly large, and look for shapes that balance the curves with straight lines. Think horizontal dark glasses with a little curve at each end are great at flattering your face. Aviators will look good too.
