How To Find The Right Sunglasses For Your Face Shape

April 26, 2016 by Isabel Jones

It’s easy to find an eye-catching pair of sunglasses and decide immediately that they’re the ones for you. Unfortunately, sunglasses shopping is a lot more complicated than *meets the eye* ;) In addition to finding a pair you L-O-V-E at first sight, you need to find a pair that complements the unique shape of your face. Read on below to find out which frames are most compatible with your face shape.

A) Heart-shaped

If you have a heart-shaped face (your forehead is significantly wider than your chin), you should be wearing aviators. The silhouette of the aviators mimics the structure of a heart-shaped face — broad top (forehead) that tapers into a narrow bottom (chin). Just make sure you choose a pair that doesn’t overpower your features.

B) Oval

If your face is oval (long and thin with a slightly narrower chin), you have a lot of freedom when it comes to frame selection. You can pull off basically any style as long as it’s proportional to your face — keep in mind, you’re not a Powerpuff Girl.

C) Round

If your face is round (it’s about as long as it is wide), choose square frames or wayfarers. It’s a balancing act between your face shape and your sunglasses’ frames, so a rounded face looks best when paired with an angular frame. Conversely…

D) Square

If your face is square (broad forehead and strong jawline), you should wear rounded frames. Again, balance is key — an angular face needs a rounded frame to even it out.
