Top 9 Sunglasses for Small Faces

Tired of trying on dozens of sunglasses that just don’t look right?

Too big, too round, too thin – and the list goes on.

Save yourself the time and frustration by finding a sunglass style made for your face. There are certain sizes and shapes for sunglasses designed for people with small faces.

Keep reading for 9 suggestions on sunglasses for small faces.

A Note on Style

Before revealing the top 9 sunglasses for small faces, here are a few quick tips on what to look for when sunglass shopping.

First, look for something with a bold frame. It will focus the attention on your eyes rather than the size of your glasses compared to your face.

If you have a small face but it is square or heart-shaped, a round frame will work well for you. But if you have a different face shape, particularly an oval face, round sunglasses may not be right for you.

At least try on a pair of aviators. Aviator sunglasses for small faces usually work well. They may not be your particular style, but give them a try and see what you think.

Now, for the top 9 you’ve been waiting for.

1. 945 311M – Robert Marc

These are your new favorite sunglasses. If you’re looking for one of the best women’s sunglasses for small faces, look no further.

The 945 311M by Robert Marc has matte tortoise frames that have yet to go out of style.

2. Archer 1535 – Tom Davies Bespoke

There is no other way to say it – the Archer 1535 sunglasses are cool. The smoked black color, dark lenses, and smooth lines make for an awesome look.

The Tom Davies Bespoke collection of glasses are all unique and tastefully designed. They have a few other options, but not all are friendly for small faces.

If you’re going to go with the Tom Davies Bespoke design, stick to the Archer variety or the Sienna 1542. These two designs will best compliment your face.

And a Note on Safety

Sunglasses are not just a fashion statement. They are an essential piece of safety equipment for your eyes. Just like your skin can be damaged from the sun, so can your eyes.

Your eyes can even get sunburned! If you notice eye irritation after a long day at the beach without your shades, you may have experienced this already.

If you don’t protect your eyes with sunglasses you may also increase your risk of cataracts and macular degeneration.

Macular degeneration is an eye disorder causing blurred vision and sometimes loss of vision. While it usually happens to adults over the age of 50, it can sometimes happen to younger people too.

The best thing you can do to protect your eyes is to have your sunglasses with you at all times. The UV and anti-reflective coating work to protect your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun.

If you are worried about eye health, look for sunglasses with mirror coating or polarized lenses. These features are known to reduce eye strain and help visibility.

If you are worried about potential damage to your eyes, you can visit an ophthalmologist. They may also be able to provide you with tips on how to protect your eyes in other ways.
