How To Determine the Perfect Sunglasses For Your Face Shape?


Sunglasses are not just to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. They are your greatest secret keepers when you want to hide the 50 shades of dark circles under your eyes. In other words, they can hide your fatigue but still keep you in style. However, not any pair of sunglasses would go with your overall image. You need to know your face shape and the sunglasses styles that go with it. You don’t have to worry; there are plenty of options for each face shape to pick from:


Round faces are equal in length and width. The best look for people with a round face is to make their face look longer and more oval. A pair of sunglasses with dark frames would contour your face, giving the illusion of elongating it into an oval shape. Also, make sure that the frame’s width is bigger than its height. The ideal sunglasses include:

  1. Cat’s eyes

  2. Butterfly-shaped

  3. Aviator styles

  4. Wayfarer styles


People with an oval-shaped face are known to have harmonious face proportions: the length of their faces is slightly greater than the width, and the width of their foreheads is somewhat bigger than the width of their jaws. That is why if you have an oval-shaped face, you need to be looking for shades that are not too massive for your face. The ideal ones would be those that are as wide or slightly wider than your face so that your eyebrows align with the upper frame, such as:

  1. Smooth-lined frames

  2. Cat’s eyes

  3. Butterfly-shaped

  4. Aviator styles


As you guessed from its name, a square face has equal lengths. They are almost identical in width and length with broad, angular chins and foreheads. The jaw, forehead, and cheekbones tend to have equal lengths. For such sharp-angled features, you do not want to overload its looks by a sharp-angled frame. Thus, you need to look for frames that soften your overall proportions of your face such as:

  1. Large/frameless glasses

  2. Frames with a width equal to your face’s width

  3. Colored frames

  4. Oval, round, or teardrop-shaped frames

  5. Cat’s eyes

  6. Aviator styles


If you have a heart-shaped face, you need to consider that your face length is greater than its width. Heart-shaped faces can either be wide at the top then narrowing down or vice versa as an inverted triangle face. You want your shades to balance between the upper and lower parts of your face. You can make the lower part of your face appear wider by wearing shade styles like:

  1. Rounded/small frames with a narrow bridge

  2. Glasses with low-set arms.

  3. Aviator styles

  4. Wayfarers styles

  5. Frameless glasses

  6. Bright/neutral-colored frames

Knowing the shape of your face is very important when you choose your sunglasses. You must consider your face’s length, width, and other measurements to find yourself the best-fit pair of shades. After that, making your decision on the perfect sunglasses would be very easy. All you have to do is know more about the styles that suit your facial features.
