How to Choose the Best Sunglasses for your Face Shape

posted by The Prep Guy July 1, 2014 0 comments
Sunglasses are my personal favourite accessories, and if you follow me on instagram, you would see that my collection is growing on a regular basis. I personally have an oval face shape, which is great for wearing many types of sunglasses. Unfortunately, not every style suits my face shape, so after a bit of research, I made this guide to help all my readers!

There are three shapes that we will look at; oval, square and triangular/heart and to make it easy – I will provide some of my personal fave picks for you to shop for!
Oval
As I stated before, the oval head shape is perfect for almost every style of sunglasses – aside any oval shape of course. The best styles that I recommend for an oval face shape are structured sunglasses, mainly because the contrast will be the most flattering out of all of the options. Something a long the lines of a wayfarer or a club master would be great, but you could also go for rectangular options.
These Oliver Peoples West sunglasses have been on my wish list for way too long, but these would be a great example of a structured shape that would best suit a oval shaped face.
Square
A square faced shape results in a wider face shape, which is typically great for wider frames. The key thing to picking sunnies for a square shaped face is to contrast it with a circular frame shape. Even though circular frames would be the best pick, don’t be afraid of trying a curved edge square frame. Circular Aviators are another style that would be perfect, but do stay away from any square aviators as it will not suit you.
These Givenchy aviators are the perfect example of a sunglasses that is made for a square face shape, it is the perfect balance of roundness and squareness to flatter your square face.
Triangular/ Heart
The triangular/heart face shape is the easiest in terms of finding a pair of sunglasses, mainly because all styles will suit your shape. If you are one of the lucky people with a triangular face shape, take advantage of it and bring out your style a-game. Experiment with trendy pieces and bolder frames like these dope Retro Super Future reflective lens bad boys!
