Sunglasses: How To Make Sure You're Wearing the Right Frames

Sunglasses are a very personal, yet essential element of any look. They can accentuate your best traits or draw attention to your worst features. The trick lies in the fit and proportion of the sunglasses and making sure they harmonize with the natural symmetry of your face. Finding and buying the perfect pair of sunglasses can be a high-stakes decision. We've made a list of pointers to help you find the right fit for your face.


This face shape looks good in most any round or square sunglasses. Beware of any pairs that are too big or too small for your face.


Depth is important when it comes to picking the right frames for this face shape. Be sure to pick a pair that offset the length of your face, but the frames shouldn't extend past the widest part of your face. 


A pair of glasses with a strong browline will balance out the high cheekbones in this face shape. Choose deep frames that are more vertical than horizontal. 


This face shape has very strong angular features. To soften these features look for rimless edges and rounded, soft lines.


Try something with detail on top and a lean base to detract from this face shape's strong jawline. 

Heart Shaped: 

Stay away from sunglasses that sit high on the face and accentuate the broad brow line. Choose a pair that is wider on top than on the bottom contouring the cheeks and chin.


Small rectangular sunglasses will provide structure, balance, and polish to this face shape.
