How to Pick The Best Sunglasses Based on Your Face Shape


Picking the perfect pair of sunglasses to match your outfit can be very tricky especially if they don't fit your face well. Males and females both struggle with this but read our tips below. Below is a guide on the best sunglasses to choose based on the most common face shapes. 

A general rule of thumb is to pick a more round style if you have more of a square face shape and to pick more of a square style if you have more of a round face.

1. Oval

The best sunglasses for an oval face are aviators. Aviators are a classic style with soft angular frames to accent the lower half of your face and jaw. 

2. Round

Sunglasses with a wayfarer look, look best on a round face. Wayfarer shaped sunglasses are slightly round yet square at the same time. The square shape of these sunglasses compliment a rounded jawline. You can balance this out by choosing a pair of wide or rectangular frames.

3. Square 

Cat-eye or goggle style sunglasses are best worn for a square face. If your eyes, forehead, cheekbones, and jaw are equal in width then these sunglasses would work well with your face shape. 

4. Heart Shaped

Cat-eye and aviator sunglasses best flatter a heart shaped face. The best way to balance a wider forehead is to add width to the lower half of the face. Aviators are perfect for heart shaped faces as their bottom-heavy shape draws attention downwards. Our Bermuda shades are classic aviator style with a rounded bottom that softens angular faces.

4. Oblong

Square shaped sunglasses are best for an oblong face shape. When the bottom half of a face is longer than the top half, square shaped sunglasses would best flatter an oblong face. 

5. Square 

Square shaped faces are are about the same length and width across. They usually have a broad forehead and a defined jaw line. The best style for this face shape are round and smaller frame glasses.
