How To Pick Sunglasses According To Your Face Shape


Picking the correct type of sunglasses is essential to upgrade your look. However, finding a pair of suitable sunglasses is not an easy task. The shape and size of sunglasses vary from face to face. For instance, if you have a round face, you would not be wearing glasses for oval face.

Therefore, the first thing you should do to find yourself a suitable pair of sunglasses is to determine the right shape of your face. To find the shape of your face, all you need to do is follow the suggestions listed below.

Know Your Face Type

Buying sunglasses is like making a valuable investment, and therefore, you need to be very cautious while picking a pair of sunglasses for yourself. The shape of sunglasses varies from one person to another, and this is because of different face shapes and sizes.

To pick the right sunglasses for yourself, you need to know your face type better, which helps you understand your face contours, angular, and features better. Sunglasses that are perfect for your face type also brings you into a comfort zone.

If you do not know how to know your face type, do not worry. We are here with a fantastic trick to measure the shape of faces easily.

  • First, stand in front of the mirror very comfortably.
  • Mark cheekbone to cheekbone – put the measuring tape below your eye and take the tape to another side of the face, below the eye. Then, note the numbers to find the shape of your cheekbones.
  • Mark jawline – place the tape just below the ear and measure from one side of the jawbone to the other side from the bottom of your face. And mark the numbers so that you get the perfect shape and size of your jawlines.
  • Measure the length of the face – place the tape to the center of your hairlines and stretch it to the nose and then to the bottom chin. Write the numbers on the measuring tape, and it will tell you the right length of your face.

Now, look at the above-marked measurements, observe and compare them to know your overall face shape. Once you know your face type, it will be easy to determine the sunglasses that suit you best.

Sunglasses For Round Face

The curves of the round faces are most common and can be noticed very quickly. People with round faces have a fewer defined angle. The perfect trendy sunglasses for round faces cover the curved features of the face and emphasize the angular structures more. This will highlight the face with a sharper and thinner look. The face will look elongated and will add angles to the jawlines and chin.

Sunglasses with rectangular frames can break the roundness of the face and make it look thin and long. You can also opt for geometric and angular structures, which will add up the sharpness and several distinct lines to your face to create a balance. Colorful frames will highly suit round faces, and you can try rectangle, wrap, shield, and square sunglasses too.

Sunglasses For Triangular Face

These shapes are wider at the bottom and narrow on the upper side. So you need to find sunglasses, which have the mirror opposite frames. This will help give you a bold look on the upper side of your face and the lightness to your bottom chin part. You can try sunglasses that mix both angular and round shapes, like D- Frames, aviators, and Cat-eye sunglasses. These glasses will suit best on the triangular faces.

Sunglasses For Oval Face

If you have an Oval face type, then you can wear almost any of the sunglasses. This face type can fit any sunglasses and will still give a fabulous look. Oval faces are slightly rounded with even features. To add more angular features and balance to your facial contours, you can try square, geometric and rectangle-shaped frames.

Go for the frame, which is wide at the upper part and covers the area of the eyes. But don’t go for large frames as they will not emphasize the symmetrical features of your face. You can also try aviators, D-Frame, rimless and oval sunglasses.
