Guess Sunglasses: Face Shapes

With the latest range of Guess Sunglasses about to launch online this week we’ve got a guide below to point you in the right direction of the perfect pair for you! From diamond to an oval shaped face, using the guide below should help you choose the best pair of Guess Sunglasses for the summer season!

guess-blog-diamondA diamond-shaped face is widest at the cheekbone with a smaller forehead and chin. Select rimless frames that are heavier on top to add width to the forehead. Oval or square frames with high temples will help minimize the cheekbones and balance out a narrow chin.

guess-blog-circleThe width and length of a round face are roughly equal in proportion. Select angular, narrow frames wider than the widest part of the face to add length. Avoid excessively round or square styles that can exaggerate the roundness of the face.
guess-blog-heartA heart-shaped face is defined by a larger forehead, high cheek- bones, and a soft jawline that leads to a neat, heart shaped chin. Select frames that are both round and angular to balance out the proportion of the face. Avoid frames that are wider at the top than on the bottom.

guess-blog-squareA square-shaped face has a strong jaw line, broad forehead and wide cheekbones. Select frames wider than the widest part of the face to make the face appear longer. Rounded or oval shaped frames will also soften the look of the face.

guess-blog-invert-triA broad forehead and high cheek-bones that gradually narrow to the chin are characteristics of an inverted triangle-shaped face. Select frames that are wider at the bottom to add width below the eye line and offset a narrow chin. Avoid large frames and bold colours.

guess-blog-triangleA triangle-shaped face is widest horizontally at the chin and gradually narrows to the forehead. Square or rimless frames are most ideal to help add width to the forehead. Avoid low swooping temples that exaggerate the appearance of the jawline.

guess-blog-ovalAn oval-shaped face is considered the ideal face shape due to its balanced proportions. Most frames look good on this person as long as the frames are in proportion to the face. Select frames that are as wide, or wider than the broadest part of the face. Avoid low, swooping temples that can unbalance the face.

Slimming your Wallet: Bellroy Accessories

After stocking the latest collection’s of Bellroy Wallets we’ve got the best tips straight from Bellroy themselves of how to reduce the bulk in your pocket! Follow the short guide below for the best way in slimming down your wallet.


Have a sort out! It sounds straight forward, but there’s really no need for the old receipts and business cards you’ve collected over the years! Keep them in a safe place by all means, but you don’t need to be carrying them around with you on a daily basis.

Cards – Do you still use that blockbuster card from the 90’s? Go through each card and figure out how often you use it – Only keep in your wallet the cards you use on a regular basis! Also have a sort and organise the cards you use daily so they’re the easiest to access.

Coins – Generally you’re best to keep them out of your leather wallet – They’ll massively increase bulk, break cards, stretch the leather and always build up with coppers before you have to sort them each week anyway! (If you’re sure you want to keep a few nugget in your wallet then the Note Sleeve Wallet or Take Out Wallet are for you!)

No you should be in a god place. Organised wallet, organised outlook! If you want to slim it down even further then Bellroy Wallets are the way to go!

Bellroy Wallet Easy Pull Tab

Easy access: The Bellroy pull-tabs ensure you can access all your cards easily. You can keep your most used cards separate and have these literally at your fingertips. Pull tabs are on almost all of the Bellroy Wallets, including the Card Sleeve, Slim Sleeve and Passport Sleeve wallets.
Leather: For wallets, there is no other material that compares to leather. It has strength, durability and resilience, while also managing to be supple and bend to your needs.

Bellroy Card SleeveAll of the Bellroy Wallets are made from vegetable tanned leather – A traditional method that helps the leather shape itself with how you use it. They are then dyed through as semi-aniline leathers, which means they should age much more gracefully than just surface painted leathers.
