Does anyone else out there feel like you have those one pair of sunglasses that do no wrong? Contrary to popular belief, there is a perfect style sunglass tailored to your face shape that will perfectly compliment your features. 

Sunglasses are a major summer accessory, not only is important to be stylish and trendy, but it is important to be in tune with what looks good on you creating harmony for your overall image.

Today's blog post is dedicated to helping you find the sunglasses that best fit your face shape.

Heart-Shaped Faces

All those heart-shaped face ladies, the length of your face is greater than the width. Your chin is the most narrow part of your face, while the forehead is the widest. With a face the gradually narrows from top to bottom, the best sunglass shape for your face includes:

  • Rounded or round glasses.
  • Small frames with a narrow bridge.
  • Glasses with low-set arms.
  • Aviators.
  • Frameless glasses.
  • Bright or neutral-colored frames.

Our Toni Bologni, mirrored aviators or our Joy round, oversized aviators have your name all over them!

Round Faces 

For those rounder faces, the length and width of your face are almost identical. You babes have a near equal width between your cheekbones, jaw, and forehead and have more of a broad and angular chin. With more of a straight hairline, the best-shaped shades for you include: 

Suitable for square faces:

  • Large glasses.
  • Glasses where the frame width equals the width of your face.
  • Glasses with colored frames.
  • Glasses with oval, round, or teardrop-shaped frames.
  • Frameless glasses.
  • Cat Eye glasses.
  • Aviators

Our Jen Jen cat eye sunglasses or Ace, square aviators are just your style!

Oval Shaped Faces

Holla for all those oval-shaped faces! You face length is slightly greater than the width. You have a more rounded chin with cheekbones that form the widest section of your face. 

The best sunglass shapes for you are: 

  • Glasses with smooth-lined frames: rectangular, oval, round.
  • “Butterfly“ glasses.
  • Aviators.
  • Cat Eye glasses.

Anyone who can rock a cat eye and a square glass has it good! #winning

We recommend purchasing the Em or the Ace, you can't go wrong with either.

Square Shaped Faces

For those with a square shaped face, aim to make your face appear visually broader. Go for large, massive-looking glasses. Sharp-angled rectangular or square frames can “overload“ your face’s outlines. On the other hand, rounded frames will help to visually balance and soften overall facial proportions.

Best sunglass pick for square faced babes: 

  • Large glasses.
  • Glasses where the frame width equals the width of your face.
  • Glasses with colored frames.
  • Glasses with oval, round, or teardrop-shaped frames.
  • Frameless glasses.
  • Cat Eye glasses.
  • Aviators.

Our Jen Jen, Toni Bologni, and Joy Gigi Pip sunglasses are right up your alley!

Triangular Shaped Faces 

Those with triangular shaped faces should focus on aiming to visually broaden the upper half of the face while making the lower half less conspicuous. Choose sunglasses with a large frame and a broad upper part. The lower part shouldn’t have square or sharp outlines.

  • Round glasses without bright decorations.
  • Aviators.
  • Cat Eye glasses with transparent lenses.
  • Frameless glasses.
