How to Buy Sunglasses Online and Get the Right Style Every Time

How great is online shopping?! The convenience of sitting on your bed, eating chocolate and scrolling through pages and pages of products is, well, dare we say therapeutic? But despite the ease of buying online it does come with some ‘ughhh’ moments. These are, 99.9% of the time, related to not knowing if your size will fit or if a product will suit you.  The typical culprits are always jeans and our favourite summer accessory… sunglasses.

So, to make your life a little easier when you’re shopping for your next pair of BrandAlley sunglasses we’ve put together a little online cheat sheet and guess what? It’s pretty simple: you just gotta know what suits your face shape. Read on to find out what style of sunglasses suit you.

If you have a round face shape go for geometric designs, horizontal or rectangular frames. The classic Wayfarer are your perfect pair!

You can’t beat a cat-eye to help you highlight those cheekbones. If old Hollywood styles aren’t your vibe opt for horizontal designs.

Try these on for size…

If you have a heart shaped face keep it neutral with a light-coloured frame or a style with thin arms. Designs with exaggerated bottoms are another great option.

We heart these sunglasses for you!
