Face Shape for Sunglasses Choice

Face shape guide


When shopping for eyewear, make sure the frame you choose fits your face shape. Different frames fit different face shapes and will make or break your fashion style.


Below you will find a list of common face shapes and recommendations for each:


With wide cheekbones and narrow chin and forehead, the best shapes are oval, square and rimless. Make sure the frame is no wider than the top of the cheekbones.


With a longer, oblong shaped face, the best shapes are round and square. These shapes will play down the length of the face and it will appear slighter shorter. Choose styles that do not extend beyond the widest part of the face. Try a sunglass with a trendy, decorative temple that adds width to the face.


With a well-balanced, oval face, most shapes will look great! Make sure that the frame is in proportion to the size of the face. This is the ideal face shape, so try the trendy oversized sunglasses, sporty wraps, rimless shields, or a classic rectangular shape- just about anything goes.


With a round face, the best shapes are rectangular and square. Choosing straight, angular lines will make the face appear longer and thinner. Styles with high brow bars and higher temples also make the face appear longer.


With a square face, the best shapes are oval, round and cat-eyes. These shapes will reduce the angles and soften a square jaw. Make sure the top of the frames sit high enough on the face to downplay the jawline. Try sunglasses with a thinner frame to soften the look.



With a narrow jaw and wide forehead, the best shapes are rimless; semi-rimless, cat-eyes and styles with a straight top. These shapes will help balance the jawline. Make sure the frames do not sit too high on the face. Avoid extra-large frames, heavy nose bridges, bold colors and square shapes!
