The perfect sunglasses for any face shape this summer

Summer is in the air, sand, sun, shorts, and our favorite holiday accessory for sunnies!

Oval Face

With balanced features and a chin slightly more narrow than the forehead, we want to see frames that help give your face some angles.

The cat-eye sunglasses are not only a major trend, but the turned up corners are a perfect way to break up elongation in the face. Try to avoid anything too-oversize as they will overpower your face shape.

Square Face

Described as having a broad, strongly defined forehead, jawline, and cheeks, we want to bring some softness to this face shape.

 

sunglasses for square face

Round frames are a perfect way to work in the retro trend while flattering a well-angled face. Stay away from square and angular frames.

Round Face

Typically described as having a soft, circular shape where the width and length are almost equal, this shape does best with classic square frames.

sunglasses for round face

Tip: avoid round sunglasses and frames that are too small, as these will lead to a face that appears rounder.

 

Heart/Triangle Face

 

Defined as broader in the forehead, but narrow at the chin, this shape does well with oval and round-shaped shades.

sunglasses for heart face

While this face shape can handle sunglasses with a small amount angles, such as the above style, try to avoid too much of an angle going upwards (the cat-eye for example). Other great options for the heart shape would be a classic aviator style or the new-wave aviator: the ge0-shaped style(keep reading below for hints on this style).
