Follow the directions below to determine your face shape and then shop our recommendations to find a pair that fits well, balances your features and looks like they were designed for your face.
Determine Your Face Shape
To determine your face shape all you need is a mirror and a dry erase marker.
If you do not fit perfectly into one of these four categories, simply pick the shape that is closest to your face.
Square Shaped Face
- Broad forehead
- Wide cheekbones
- Width and length are proportionate
- Prominent jawline
A Square face is complimented by narrow sunglasses that have more width than depth as this softens the angles of a square chin and will also make the face look longer.
Best Bets: Aviator, Round, Cat Eye, Rimless or Metal Wrap
Heart Shaped Face
- Wide forehead
- High cheekbones
- Small or pointed chin
- Wider across the brow than the chin
The best option for this face shape is smaller sunglasses that minimize the width of your upper face. Avoid larger sunglasses that overwhelm your face and exaggerate your forehead.
Best Bet: Rimless or Metal Wrap, Aviator, Cat Eye
Oval Shaped Face
- Balanced forehead, cheekbones and jaw
- Forehead is slightly wider than the jaw
- Rounded chin
The oval face is considered the most well proportioned so you can wear almost any style of sunglass as long as you do not go too big or too small.
Best Bet: Cat-Eye, Round, Wayfarer, Clubmaster
Round Shaped Face
- Equal in length and width
- Full cheeks
- Rounded chin
The best sunglass options for round faces are ones that have a wider frame than the broadest part of your face. Choose rectangular and square shapes to add angles as opposed to round shapes that will not be complimentary to your face.
Best Bet: Rectangular, Square and Wayfarers, Aviators
