Best Sunglasses For Your Face

Picking out sunglasses isn't always as easy as just grabbing the most stylish pair. You want the shape to work on your face. Not sure of your face shape? Here are a few tips:
  • Heart-shaped - a wider forehead that narrows at the chin. 
  • Oval - all of the features are pretty much balanced. The cheekbones are high with a narrow chin.
  • Square - broad forehead with a strong, angular chin.
Those with a heart-shaped face should look for frames that help to broaden the jawline of the face. Frames that are large or bottom-heavy will help to do this.

Those with an oval shaped face are lucky because just about any frame works for them. Square frames work on an oval face because the soft curves can handle angular frames.

Those with a square-shaped face should look for rounded frames to help balance the sharp angles of the face. 

The good news is that aviators work with just about any face shape, as seen below:


Even my three-year-old looks adorable in his aviators. Have a great day!

  3. This is a really good post! I have a oval face but for some unknown reason to me, whenever I wear aviators everyone tells me that they look ridiculous. Am I getting too big of aviators?

    1. Maybe the glasses are too big. You could try a smaller aviator frame...

  7. I have the hardest time even distinguishing my face time. Let alone finding sunnies that work for my face. I think I have a heart shaped face but I'm never sure!

  18. This was a great post! Very informative! I have a hard time deciding what kind of face I have, round or heart. I think I'll just stick to the aviators, since it looks good on everybody.

  22. That is a great post! I find it a true challenge to find a pair of sunnies to fit my face... there is one brand, though, that works best for me: the beloved Ray Bans

  35. I almost never wear sunglasses because I wear glasses all the time, which means having to swap pairs and keep up with two pairs and that seems to be too much of a hassle! I've been thinking about getting a pair of prescription glasses though ... so if I do, this guide will definitely help with the choice. Thanks! xoxo, eliza

  38. Ahhh stumbling upon this post could not have come at a better time. Im on a sunglasses buying rampage at the moment before I go to Europe and wanted to buy some cat eye glasses but just wasnt sure - but they are what suit oval shaped faces which is me :) Such a clever and necessary post. Thanks for sharing.
