Best Sunglasses for Your Face Shape


We are all unique and every face is different. We put this post together to help you decide which frames flatter your features the most. To help find your face shape, using a mirror or your phone and try to outline your face. Most faces fall into the following categories.

 

Round: Round faces have less defined angles, a narrow forehead and jaw, and full cheekbones. 

Suggestions: Rectangular and square shape frames help elongate a round face, making it look thinner and sharper. Examples: Drifter, Jetsetter, Classic  

Oval: Oval faces are considered the the most versatile when it comes to eyewear. They are characterized as longer than they are wide, with a rounded jaw line.

Suggestions: Just about any type of sunglasses will match well with this face type. Don't be afraid to mix it up and find your favorite! Examples: Classic, Jetsetter, Drifter, Beachcomber, Yachtmaster, Mermaid

Square: Square faces have well defined angles that are generally the same length and width. They are characterized by a strong jawline and wide cheekbones. 

Suggestions: As a rule of thumb, sunglasses should be the opposite shape of your face. Therefore, square faces would look best paired with round or oval shaped frames that will help balance out the sharp facial features. Examples: Yachtmaster, Beachcomber, Mermaid

Oblong: Oblong or rectangular faces are long and narrow. This face type has fewer angles with a narrow chin and cheeks.  

Suggestions: This face type looks best with oversized frames. Taller and larger frames will help sharpen the soft features. Small frames should be avoided. Examples: Drifter, Yachmaster, Beachcomber

Heart: Heart-shaped or triangle faces are widest at the temples and narrowest at the chin. They feature high cheekbones and a narrow chin that is well-defined. 

Suggestions: This face shape is known as one of the harder to find the perfect fit. This is due to the countering of the wider forehead with the narrow chin. The following examples balance this face type the best: Yachtmaster, Beachcomber, Mermaid
