Don’t go OTT on Colour

You may be a fan of bright pink but leave it out of the workplace. A neutral colour palette is it.

If it Doesn’t Fit, Ditch it!

Clothes should always fit but more so for formal wear. No too-long hemlines and too-loose jackets, please!

Put Your Best Foot Forward

Sneakers and flip-flops may be super-comfy but they don’t exactly scream smart. Choose pumps, peep-toes and slip-ons instead.

Peep Toes Footwear

Choose Classy Over Sexy

Low-cut and backless tops may help you sizzle but save them for nights out. Choose formal shirts and tops with modest necklines.

Bold patterns are a no-no but if you want something more exciting than colour-blocks, opt for classic patterns like herringbone and houndstooth.

Two Metals are a No-go

Small is Cool, Big is Not!

Sunglasses and Face Shapes

Sunglasses and Face Shapes- Do These Two Go Along?

Poor Turkey

If you don’t wish to be this Poor Turkey, then read through carefully!

 

Sunglasses do more than keeping sunlight out of your eyes; they can redefine your style too. Like any accessory, choosing the right type can make or break your look. Here’s a quick way to know which sunglasses are right for you.

Before you move ahead, learn about the shape of your face:

learn about the shape of your face

 

Now, take a quick look at what suits your face best:

Angular Face Shapes: Square, Triangular, and Diamond face shapes are characterised by strong jaws and prominent cheekbones. You want to balance them with sunglasses that have soft edges and lines like round, shield, and aviator styles.

Angular Face Shapes

 

Heart Face Shape: Heart face shapes feature narrow jawlines and wide brows. The key is to elongate the face a little by choosing sunglasses with a downward emphasis like aviators. If you have a pointed chin, oval frames are a better pick.

Heart Face Shape

 

 

Circular Face Shapes: Round, Oval, and Oblong face shapes need sunglasses with sharper angles to create balance. Wayfarers are a top option as are square and cat-eye styles.
