Best Sunglasses for your Face Shape

Best Sunglasses for your Face Shape

The best style of sunglasses for your face shape and head size are the ones that you feel most comfortable wearing but we also know that style & sustainability counts!  So just in case you need a little help deciding, check out these suggestions to envision a better future!

FACE SHAPES

Oval or Round

Round or oval shaped faces tend to look best in structured shades with fewer soft angles or curves like the Amerigo, Classic, and Atticus styles

Rectangle, Square or Diamond

People in this category should choose a frame with round, curved or oval shaped lenses that will help round out the sharpness of their features for a more balanced look. Examples of styles that would work well for this face are Aviator, Alani, Bella, Coco or Lia styles. Center or top set temples are the way to go with a square face.

Oblong

Also called rectangular, are long and narrow with few angles. An oblong face works especially well with oversized sunglasses. Also, larger wayfarer or rectangular lenses and sunglasses with thick frames add width to a long face. Another option is sunglasses that feature tall or deep lenses and vintage style frames because the sharp angles and bold lines will give oblong faces an edge, sharpening otherwise soft features. This group is going to turn heads in the Sportsman, Amerigo, Alani, Classic, and Atticus styles. Oblong faces should avoid small frames.  

Heart Shaped or Triangle

Sometimes called triangle, are widest at the temples and narrowest at the chin. Sunglasses that feature wide lower edges with no straight lines along the top work especially well for this facial group because they shift attention downward and elongate the face. Cat-eye styles or glasses that feature rounded edges are ideal for giving the wearer a more balanced look. This face shape will be best served with Sportsman, Olalla, Capri, Bella or Aviator styled frames. 

Oval

You have it made because literally every frame looks awesome! Oval faces have gently rounded, fairly even features, and pretty much any shape is going to work well on them. Designer to sport, fashion to function, everything works. Just don’t get huge frames that block out those pretty symmetrical features; choose sunglasses that cover the face from the eyebrows to the cheekbones.
