How to Find the Best Sunglasses for your Face Shape

Posted by Liran Hirschkorn on

Being trendy and looking nice have one thing in common: you need to know what suits you! So we’ll help you figure out the best sunglasses for your face shape!

Summer is around the corner, and you will definitely be wearing some trendy eyewear. But it will only be in your favour if you choose the correct style. We all want to look cool in aviators sunglasses, but not all of us may look good in them. It can be really hard to find the best sunglasses for your face shape without knowing the basics. But worry not, we’re here to help you step by step!

The first thing about finding the best sunglasses for your face shape….is knowing your face shape! We know, that sounds easy, but most of us will find themselves in between two types of shapes. So let’s check this out together, shall we?



There are 5 main types of face shapes. You will most likely find yourself in one of them, or a mix of two. There are many other types (diamond, heart, pear, inverted triangle) but that’s for our next chapter! 


Round Face

Your face is wider than longer and has a round jawline. Your face is mostly composed by curved lines and you do not have too many angles. The best sunglasses for your face shape are those with a more angular design to contrast the curves. 

Round Face


Oval Face

Your face is slightly longer than wider and has a round jawline. You have even features and your face is gently rounded. The best sunglasses for your face shape are regular sized (stay away from huge frames) and mostly any type will suit you. Oval face shape is the best one for any eyewear.

Oblong Face

Your face is way longer than wider and your jawline is round. This shape is longer than the oval face. The best sunglasses for this face shape are big and with low bridge.

Square Face

Your face has pretty much the same length and width. One of the highlights of this face shape is a squared jawline with a wide hairline. The best sunglasses for your face shape are more curved and round to contrast the angles of your face.
