Man Wearing Right Sunglasses for Face Shape

The quintessential summer accessory are the sunglasses, and for good reason. Sunglasses offer both style and utility during the summer months and add personality to your outfit. However, it is important to choose the correct sunglasses style in order to complement your facial features. Keep reading and Style Konsult will find the right sunglasses for you.

Oval Face

Oval face shapes are very versatile and are able to wear a wide variety of frames. From Clubmasters, to Wayfarers, to circular frames—an oval face shape will complement most any frame well. Just be sure that your sunglasses are about the same width as your face, avoiding frames that are too wide or narrow.

Round Face

Round faces are characterized by their softer shapes and no sharp angles. To create more structure in the face, it’s important to choose sunglasses that are angular and with few curves. A great choice for this would be square or rectangle-style frames, while avoiding circular lenses.

Square Face

Square faces have sharp angles that are perfectly balanced by softer sunglasses styles. Try out a pair of aviators or round frames to offset the natural angles of your face. Avoid frames with sharp angles as that may make your face look boxy.

Heart Face

Heart faces have wider foreheads in comparison to their narrower chins. The sunglasses goal with this face shape is to add weight to the bottom of the frames to balance out the forehead width. Meaning that an aviator or d-frame would be ideal for heart faces.
