Choosing the Right Style of Sunglasses for Your Face Shape

Stylish sunglasses are a must-have for your summer wardrobe. Whether you're shopping for the holy grail pair you'll keep for years to come or prefer to keep a few budget-friendly sunnies on hand so you can mix and match, choosing the right sunglasses style for your face shape will instantly upgrade your aesthetic.

Heart-Shaped Face

If your face is wider in the top half and at its most narrow at your chin, you're blessed with a heart shape. The most flattering choice for your features will be a frame that's wider at the top than at the bottom, mirroring your natural appearance. A retro-inspired cat eye, a square Wayfarer style, or a bold browline frame will quickly become one of your favorite accessory.

Oval-Shaped Face

If the height of your face is longer than the width, you have a versatile oval shape. Most sunglasses will flatter no matter their shape, but you should make sure that the proportion is correct for your features.

Round Face

Round faces are wider at the cheekbones, tapering to a narrow forehead and jawline. Balance these proportions with oversized sunglasses in any shape you choose. You'll also look great in unusual shapes like square or cat eye frames.

Square Face

A square face is wide at the forehead, cheekbones and chin, with an appealing, symmetrical look. Add some curves to your countenance with sunglasses that feature rounded frames. Try a classic yet on-trend aviator style, hippie chic round John Lennon frames, or even a slightly rounded version of the iconic cat eye.
