Faces come in all shapes and sizes, and so do sunglasses. The key to finding a pair of sunglasses that fits right and looks great on you is all about matching frame shape with face shape. If this sounds like agony to you, don’t sweat it, we’re here to help.

4 Common Face Shapes

Here’s a helpful primer for starters: There are four general face shapes, and for each of these shapes, there are common traits.

The best sunglasses for square face shapes
  • Broad jawline.
  • More angular lines, equally wide cheekbones, forehead and jaw.
  • Semi-rimless or round styles can help balance a prominent jaw.

  • Tapered jawline and slightly defined cheekbones.
  • Best looks are from square, round or bold geometric frames.

The best sunglasses for round face shapes
  • Forehead and jaw height and width are roughly equivalent. Softer angles with slightly wider cheekbones.
  • Horizontal or rectangle shaped frames give your face a longer appearance.
