What are the best sunglasses style to fit your face shape?

Posted on

When buying sunglasses, it is important to consider your face size and shape to find the right style for you. A perfect match will help enhancing your attractive facial features and making you look your best. 

So, how do you know which shades are your perfect match?

First, you need to figure out whether your face is heart, round, or square.

We have made this very easy by making a guide below to find your next sunnies.

Round Face

You can identify a round face because it has a wide forehead, full cheeks, and rounded chins. A good rule of thumb for people with round faces is to add contrast to the face's natural curves and to avoid frames that exaggerate the circular form of the face. Go for glasses that are wider, such as the BMW M1501-90 M-Series. 

These frames give the illusion of a slimmer face. Bright colors, strong brow detailing, and other embellishments can make a round face appear thinner and longer.

When browsing through our Urban Steven collection, look for these features that will suit your round face:

  • Strong details
  • Wider than tall lenses
  • Nosepads for height
  • Pointed, rectangular, and square glasses
  • “Cat’s eyes” glasses
  • ”Butterfly” glasses
  • Glasses with narrow bridges
  • “Aviators”
  • “Wayfarers"

Square Face

The most distinguishing feature of a square face is a prominent jawline. Thus, you have to look for shapes with curves to soften your look. 

Round frames, oval frames or a cat-eye frame would all compliment a square face.

You can also make a square face appear thinner and softer by picking glasses in neutral colors like the BMW B6520-10 Sunglasses, as well as glasses that are wider than they are deep, wider frames give the illusion of a slimmer face. 

When you look in our Urban Steven collection, look for these features that will suit your square faces:

  • Large glasses
  • Glasses where the frame width equals the width of your face
  • Glasses with colored frames
  • Glasses with oval, round, or teardrop-shaped frames
  • Frameless glasses
  • ”Cat’s eyes" glasses
  • “Aviators”

Heart-shaped Face

Sometimes called the “upside down triangle, these faces are the widest at the temples and narrowest at the chin. Your most distinguishing features are high cheekbones and a jawline that drops to a defined chin.

When choosing glasses for heart-shaped faces, minimize the width of the top of the face and to broaden the appearance of the chin. Look for frames that are wider than your forehead like these Aviators from Oakley ELMONT - 004119 - 58 or have prominent end points like Cat Eye styles, or glasses that feature rounded edges are ideal for giving the wearer a more balanced look. Floral or tortoise patterns will also help soften your look. The best part of this face shape is that different many styles will suit you.

When you look in our Urban Steven collection, look for these features that will suit your heart-shaped face:

  • Rounded or round glasses
  • Small frames with a narrow bridge
  • Glasses with low-set arms
  • “Aviators”
  • “Wayfarers”
  • Frameless glasses
  • Bright or neutral-colored frames
  • Frames wider than forehead
  • Details on lower half
