Ahhh, summer time. School is out, the pools are open, and it is HOT HOT HOT 24/7. Summer time is also the time when the sunglasses come out in droves, aka the key accessory of any beach, lake, or pool ensemble. Not a big sunnies girl? Don’t know where or how to find the perfect pair? Swagger has got you covered! Quay sunglasses (pronounced key) are high, but affordable, fashion sunglasses. They’ve partnered with countless celebrities and influencers (I mean, J-Lo is partnering with them right now, can it really get much better?) to make unique collections of sunglasses to represent the various styles of the men and women that they serve. The quality of these glasses is literally unbeatable; if you’re like me and somehow manage to break every pair of glasses you ever own, these glasses will survive us! They have something for everyone, and all of their sunnies are so dang cute I could just about buy them all! Something that I’ve struggled with in the past is finding the perfect pair of sunglasses that LOOK right on my face. Just like clothing can accentuate certain features of your body, the style and shape of your sunglasses can draw attention to certain facial features, so it’s important to know which shape is best suited for your face. Here are some tips on how to pick the right sunglasses for you:
Round face: In order to make a round face appear thinner and longer, try a square or rectangular frame that is wider than your face. Avoid smaller or round frames, this will accentuate the roundness of your face.

Oval face: If you have an oval shaped face, lucky you! Your face and its features are almost perfectly balanced and proportional. In order to maintain this balance, look for frames that are as wide or wider than the broadest part of your face. Avoid oversized glasses that cover up over half of your face, it’ll throw off your natural symmetry!
Square face: If you have a square face, try oval or round glasses that sit higher on the bridge of the nose to soften those angles. Avoid square or angular frames; they’ll make your face look more boxy than it really is.
