Sunglasses That Flatter Your Face Shape

An ideal pair of sunglasses is the Jane-of-all-trades! But does it come easy? No, nothing comes easy (sigh!) Are you guilty of thinking that a particular style of sunglasses that really looks good on your friend will look good on you too? Have you ever ordered sunglasses online and then ended up being disappointed because they don’t compliment you? Well, chances are that you’re not keeping your face shape in mind when buying sunglasses. But you know you can always count on SHE to help you out.

Round Shape

A round face is defined by a soft, circular shape with full cheekbones where the width and length are almost equal. When buying sunglasses for this particular face shape, consider oversized, angular frames with sharp edges and upward lines to add length to the face.
Our favorite styles include wayfarers, cat eye frames, rectangular and square frames. As long as it’s not round, you’ll be good to go!

Square shape

A square face is defined by strong, well-defined angles in the forehead, cheeks and jaw line. Try opting for soft, curved edges to take away some of the angularity off of your face. Try round, wider glasses to go with your face shape.
We love basic aviators and round aviators for this particular face shape. Who doesn’t want to rock some aviators?

Oval Shape

An oval face is defined by balanced features and a chin slightly narrower than the forehead. When shopping for an oval face you can carry off just about anything from round John Lennon glasses to the pieces that Lady Gaga likes wearing. Just be mindful of the proportions, try not to go too big or too small for your face.
Our preferred styles include aviators, round aviators, retro-squares, wayfarers-basically every style as long as it’s not too big or small for your face.

Heart Shape

A heart-shaped face is defined by a broader forehead and narrower jaw line and chin. Sunglasses that feature wide lower edges with no straight lines along the top work especially well for this facial group because they shift attention downward and elongate the face.
We love how cat eye frames and butterfly frames compliment this face shape. We’re low-key envious too!
