Trending Sunglasses Shapes for Every Face

Sunglasses are fun to add to any outfit, but wearing them also has the added benefit of helping to prevent eye cancer. They may also reduce the risk of developing cataracts and glaucoma later in life.

Clearly, there are many great reasons to wear sunglasses throughout the summer and on sunny days!

These days, there are so many types of sunglasses in different styles and colors that it can be overwhelming to choose a pair. Knowing which sunglasses shapes look best on your face is one way to narrow it down and find a pair that highlights your best features.

The latest trending sunglasses give everyone fashionable options, no matter what your face shape is.

At Eye Elegance, we’re passionate about providing you with the most beautiful and unique sunglasses options. No need to search for “glasses for face shapes.” Just read our sunglasses buying guide here.

Round Face Shapes

If you aren’t sure what your face shape is, there are simple steps you can take to find out by observing your facial features in a mirror.

Signs you may have a round face shape include having a rounded or narrow forehead and jawline and full cheekbones. Your cheekbones may be the widest point of your face.

For reference, some famous round faces include Selena Gomez, Emma Stone, Chrissy Teigen, and Leonardo DiCaprio.

A good rule of thumb for round faces is that angular lines will help balance the roundness of your face. Think blocky, square sunglasses or wide, rectangular glasses with thinner frames. Rounded edges will only exaggerate the fullness of your face.

If you’re looking for designer sunglasses, which you should, Tom Davies Bespoke makes gorgeous, chunky square sunglasses for women that are perfect for the summer months. Robert Marc also makes classic rectangular sunglasses for men that will go with any style.

Heart-Shaped Faces

A heart-shaped face is characterized by a wide forehead, a narrow or pointed chin (like the bottom of a heart), and full cheekbones.

Some famous heart-shaped faces are seen on celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Scarlett Johansson, and Robert Pattinson.

The fun thing about buying sunglasses for heart-shaped faces is that the best shapes are the ones that mimic your face shape!

Go for shapes that are wider on top than they are on the bottom. Try shapes like cat-eye frames, aviators, or rounded frames that will also look great.

Vuarnet makes aviator-style designer glasses in many colors and unique designs, so you’re bound to find a style that you love. For chic cat-eye shapes reminiscent of old Hollywood, check out sunglasses by Oliver Peoples.

Square Face Shapes

Square face shapes are characterized by the distinctive equal width of your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline. Your jawline is likely sharp and your chin may be slightly squared or pointed.

Celebrities with square face shapes include people like Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis, Rosario Dawson, Mandy Moore, and Henry Cavill.

When it comes to picking sunglasses for square face shapes, soft lines and circular, timeless frames are your best friends. You can also go for cat-eye frames. All of these options will soften your face shape and complement the angles of it.

Reach for a pair of rounded frames by Robert Marc. You can also try out a retro-inspired, circular pair of sunglasses from Oliver Peoples.

Oval Face Shapes

Oval face shapes may be harder to distinguish, but as a rule of thumb, if the length of your face is longer than the width, you’ve got an oval face. Oval faces have balanced features, as in your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline are all in balance with each other.

Some celebrities with an oval face shape are Beyonce, Rihanna, Emma Watson, Jessica Alba, and Chris Hemsworth.

The best thing about having an oval-shaped face is that nearly any type of sunglasses will look flattering on you! You can go wild and pick any frame that stands out to you.

Any designer eyeglasses or sunglasses will look great on you. If you want to narrow it down, try reaching for oversized frames and frames with a round shape, or the “John Lennon” types of frames.

You could even try custom sunglasses or novelty sunglasses with outrageous or unusual frames.

Oliver Peoples make some gorgeous rounded frames, while a pair of retro-inspired sunglasses from Matsuda will also fit your face shape wonderfully.

Oblong Face Shapes

You likely have an oblong face shape if you have a long face with a more narrow chin and cheeks. The length of your face is longer than the width, but your features are not balanced like an oval face shape.

Some famous examples of an oblong face shape can be seen on celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Liv Tyler, Sandra Oh, Meryl Streep, and Ben Affleck.

For oblong faces, oversized or hexagonal frames always look great. Narrow frames, on the other hand, may not suit you and may exaggerate the length of your face.

You can find designer frames that will perfectly suit you, like Vuarnet’s oversized frames. Reach for Lindberg’s vintage-inspired, oversized sunglasses for another great option that will complement you.
