It’s 2019, the eyewear industry has highly expanded in product and picking the perfect pair can sometimes feel stressful. It is important to understand how certain colors, edges, and sizes all have different impacts on your face structure.
If you are looking to find sunglasses to compliment your face shape, we have some tips, tricks, and recommendations to make you rock your best look.
Now let’s talks shapes!
If you have an oval face shape, we consider you one of the lucky ones! Oval shaped faces can pull off about any style since their face portions are naturally balanced.
People with this shape tend to have long faces, high cheekbones, and a more narrow chin compared to their forehead. Oval faces should avoid frames that may be too big or small in size to not throw off the balance.
At the end of the day, ovals have more fun! Do not be afraid to experiment with bold shapes or colors because you can pull it off!

Heart-shaped faces tend to have a broader forehead that narrows all the way down to the chin. A heart shape is also described as an upside-down triangle, where it is thicker at the top and thins down as it reaches the bottom.
When it comes to heart-shaped faces it is all about the forehead! The biggest objective is to take away the focus from the width of the forehead and broaden the appearance of the chin.
To achieve this, it is encouraged to pick glasses with a curved or cat-eyed edge to draw away attention from the forehead. Lastly, light colored frames are also a great way to draw away the width from the top of the face. Erinn Morgan discusses this in her article, The Best Glasses For Your Face Shape And Skin Tone that “thin, light-colored frames and rimless frames that have a light, airy appearance also are good choices.”
Light colors are your cup of tea! Summer and spring is the season of hearts!

Square face shapes have the sharp, straight, and lined features. These faces tend to have broad foreheads as well as a strong and wide and jawline.
Now let’s soften you up!
Square faces need thin metal frames with a curved or rounded edge to even out the dominant face dimensions. It is also suggested to lean more towards soft colors such as gold, bronze, and silver. The big picture is to stay away from boxy, straight lined, and bold edges to avoid harshening your look.

If you have a round face, then you got curves!
Round faces tend to have equal proportions with fuller cheeks, soft curves, and no angles.
When choosing sunglasses you want to take away from the fullness of the face and make it more defined and contoured. The best frames to pick would ones that are boxy, squared, or even cat-eyed to sharpen your look.
