Sunglasses have the ability to add a cool element to any look — and this season we’re really excited about all of the new styles on our site. Something that has always intrigued me, though, is the fact that a pair of sunglasses that works really well on one person can end up looking totally out of place on another. To help solve this silly little issue, Jana and I turned to our stylists to help us figure out how to choose the best pair of sunglasses based on face shape. The key: It’s all about balance!
Round faces work best with angular sunglasses, as these angles help to balance out the spherical shape. The oversized Abbey Road Sunglasses look like they were made for Alyssa.
When it comes to sunglasses, those with oval-shaped faces are the luckiest of all! Because of the natural balance created by an oval shape, basically any shape of sunglasses will do! We’re in love with Rounders Sunglass, which look super cool on our graphic designer Jenny.
Just as angular sunglasses work on round faces, round sunglasses are meant for square faces! Jillian looks incredible in the Freya Sunglasses, with their unique wrap frames and gold touches.
Cat-eye sunglasses are another kind that work wonderfully for those with oval-shaped faces. We love how the Love Story Sunglasses look on Colby, who just so happened to have done her makeup in the shape of a cat eye, too!
If you have a heart-shaped face, Aviators are a prime choice for you. Their rounded edges help to move the focus downward on the face, balancing out the look overall. The Apres Ski Aviators work perfectly for our assistant buyer Kate.
See all of our sunglasses!
