Buy Sunglasses that Suit Your Face Shape

Buying sunglasses can be a long and tedious process. As brands proliferate, and styles multiply, we’re often dazzled by the various shades on display, and forget to train our lens on what’s important – shape and fit. Pick a pair that complements your facial features, and you’ll instantly up your frame game.

For a Round Face

Frames that contrast well with your softer features; the goal is to create as much definition as possible. Frames that are slightly wider than your face, such as aviators, will make your cheeks appear slimmer. Angular frames (such as Wayfarers) elongate your temples and lengthen your face.

For an Oval Face

Almost anything, because – congratulations – you’re blessed with the most coveted, compatible face shape of all.

For an Oblong Face

Thick frames or oversize lenses to balance out your narrow proportions and soft features. Try vintage styles with clean, bold lines or aviators – the convex shape and teardrop silhouette of their lenses accentuate the line of the cheek and jaw.

For a Square Face

Rounded or slightly curved frames that will complement your strong facial structure.

For a Heart Shaped Face

Rounder frames, to help balance the wider forehead, or bottom-heavy frames, to help broaden the lower part of the face.

For a Diamond Shaped Face

Retro-inspired, rectangular styles that complement your chin and sharp cheekbones. You’ve got the canvas to experiment with strong colors and creative details.

For a Triangular Face

Top-heavy frames that pull the emphasis upwards and offset your broad jaw and chin; teardrop lenses can draw the eye up to the forehead. Anything with a heavy browline adds width to the upper portion of the face, which is where you need structure.
