Style: The Best Sunglasses for Every Face Shape
Written by: Allison Swan
Looking to buy a new pair of sunglasses but not sure what looks best on you? Here's the easiest way to narrow down your search to find the perfect pair that looks like they were made for your face shape!
There are four face shapes: oval, round, heart, and square.
An oval shape is defined by balanced features and a chin slightly narrower than the forehead. You can pull off just about any look. Rectangle frames are a top pick because they balance your face. If you have high cheekbones, up-swept styles accentuate and compliment your facial structure.
A round face is soft and circular where the width and length are almost equal. Geometric shapes like horizontal frames, Wayfarers, and rectangle shapes give your face a longer look.
A heart-shaped face is defined by a broader forehead and narrower jawline and chin. Direct attention downward to elongate your look with flashier frames with exaggerated bottoms and frames with thin temples.
A square face has bold and well-defined angles in the forehead, cheeks, and jawline. Try curvier frames like round, oval, cat eye, butterfly, and semi-rimless to really accentuate your eyes and balance your jawline.
