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. Whether you have an oval face, round face, or something in-between, we’re here to help you find the best glasses and frame shape for your face.

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.

Sunglasses for Square Face Shapes

Square Face Shape

  • Broad jawline.
  • More angular features, equally wide cheekbones, forehead, and jaw.
  • Semi-rimless or round sunglasses can help balance a prominent jaw and a square face.

Sunglasses for Oval Face Shapes

Oval Face Shape

  • Balanced proportions. Gentle, narrower forehead and jaw.
  • Tapered jawline, slightly defined cheekbones, and a long face.
  • Best frames for an oval face shape are from a square frame, round frame, or bold geometric frames like aviator sunglasses or oversized sunglasses. These styles of frames are typically wider than the face and can help add more balance to your features.

Sunglasses for Round Face Shapes

Round Face Shape

  • 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.

Sunglasses for Heart Face Shapes

Heart Face Shape

  • Widest at the forehead and narrow through the jaw and chin.
  • High, angled cheekbones and a heart-shaped face.
  • Low profile glasses frames are good for heart-shaped faces because they elongate your look and evening out proportions.
