Sunglasses are a major summer accessory, not only is important to be stylish and trendy, but it is important to be in tune with what looks good on you creating harmony for your overall image.
Today's blog post is dedicated to helping you find the sunglasses that best fit your face shape.
All those heart-shaped face ladies, the length of your face is greater than the width. Your chin is the most narrow part of your face, while the forehead is the widest. With a face the gradually narrows from top to bottom, the best sunglass shape for your face includes:
For those rounder faces, the length and width of your face are almost identical. You babes have a near equal width between your cheekbones, jaw, and forehead and have more of a broad and angular chin. With more of a straight hairline, the best-shaped shades for you include:
Suitable for square faces:
Oval Shaped Faces
Holla for all those oval-shaped faces! You face length is slightly greater than the width. You have a more rounded chin with cheekbones that form the widest section of your face.

Square Shaped Faces
For those with a square shaped face, aim to make your face appear visually broader. Go for large, massive-looking glasses. Sharp-angled rectangular or square frames can “overload“ your face’s outlines. On the other hand, rounded frames will help to visually balance and soften overall facial proportions.
Best sunglass pick for square faced babes:
Triangular Shaped Faces
Those with triangular shaped faces should focus on aiming to visually broaden the upper half of the face while making the lower half less conspicuous. Choose sunglasses with a large frame and a broad upper part. The lower part shouldn’t have square or sharp outlines.
No matter your face shape or summer adventure, Gigi Pip should be your first stop for all things summer accessories. Be sure to head to gigipip.com to shop our newest sunglass collection!
Women's hat sizes are fairly intuitive. The average women's head size measures around 57cm. If you are unsure of your hat size the Gigi Pip small/medium hat would be the best starting point. The small/medium hat size is made to fit 57cm + can be adjusted down to 55cm. If you know you have a slightly larger head go with the 59cm size. As far as Gigi Pip sizing goes this is a medium/large, made to fit a 59cm head size + then can be adjusted down to 57cm. The largest size Gigi Pip offers is a 61 cm, labeled as an XL, like our other sizes the 61 can be sized down to 59 cm. For women who feel they have a slightly smaller head than normal we recommend an XS which begins at 55cm + can be sized down to 53 cm. In select styles we offer kids sizing which begins at 53 cm + can be adjusted to 51 cm.
In short- the most common hat size is a S/M (57cm). While this is the most common hat size, remember that properly sizing your Gigi Pip hat will ensure the best fit.
There are two primary methods of measuring your hat size + are based on the style in which you wear your hat. You will need to take both measurements (shown below) + then use the larger of the two measurements to determine your hat size. Once you've received your hat, you can decide how you would like to wear it + adjust your hat size accordingly.
TIP: If you don't have a textile measuring tape, use a string or piece of yarn to measure the distance around your head. After you have marked the yarn around your head, lay it out flat on the ground or table + measure the straightened out piece of yarn with a measuring stick or regular measuring tape.
Adjustable Inner Band Instructions
Flip up the sweatband to find the Velcro tab + pull to tighten. Velcro the ribbon back in place to secure your desired fit. The adjustable band can adjust the hat up to 5 cm when necessary! Some helpful tips about our adjustable inner band-
Hat Sizing Tape Instructions
Hat sizing tape is an additional option for tightening the fit of your hat. Place the foam tape on the inside of your hat, behind the sweatband, with the sticky side facing towards the hat wall. Wrap the tape completely around the hat for maximum size decrease or cut tape length in half for a more moderate decrease. Size to fit prior to removing the adhesive cover. Once the fit is correct, remove the adhesive cover, press firmly into place, and wa-lah.
