Finding the perfect sunglasses according to your face shape is honestly an extremely downplayed struggle. No, seriously. Shopping for glares, especially online is no joke. You can't buy round frames if your face shape is the same. Similarly, angled sunglasses are not the best bet for people with a long face shape. That said, difficult as it might be to find the perfect sunglasses as per your face shape, it is not impossible.

But here’s another catch! While men mostly make do with the run of mill aviators and wayfarers, women obviously have a wide array of sunglasses for different face shapes to select from. And exciting as it is, it’s also confusing AF.  But haven’t we all heard of the phrase, the more the merrier?! So without further ado, here’s a list of sunglasses that will fit you the best, as per your face shape.

    Sunglasses For Oval Face

    An oval face is characterised by balanced features, slightly rounded chin, and shape longer than it is wide. The coolest part with this face shape is that there is no feature more pronounced than the other which basically means that it is extremely easy to find sunglasses for oval face shape. Cat eyes, large frames, lennons and OTT ones work really well with this face shape. Aviators will also look really good on someone with an oval face. So oval faced peeps, in case you are looking for the perfect sunglasses for your face shape, here are some POPxo recommendations to consider:

    Sunglasses For Square Face

    Square shaped faces are demarcated by a broad forehead, strong jawline, and prominent bones. Basically, the features are mostly symmetrical with both the forehead and jawline being of the same proportion. The goal here is to balance the overall look while opting for sunglasses. You need glasses that soften your features and thus, frames that are on the rounder side will work well. Also, while choosing sunglasses for square faces you need to avoid thick-rimmed glasses and go for soft rimmed or rimless glasses that sit high enough to downplay your jawline. You can go for round frames, oval-shaped shades or cat-eye sunglasses. Wayfarers, aviators, and Lennons work too. 

    Here are some POPxo approved sunglasses for your face shape:

    Sunglasses For Round Face

    Those with a round face have a face that has its width almost equal to its length, a soft jawline, and full cheeks. In case you have a round face, you should opt for angular frames & straight lines for an overall balance. Also, we recommend that you experiment a little while looking for sunglasses according to your face shape. 

    Try experimenting with oversized, angular, & rectangular frames as they will balance the softness of your face with strong lines. You can try wayfarers, rectangular & square frames, and some sharp varieties of cat-eye sunglasses as well while choosing sunglasses for a round face. Here are some of the POPxo recommendations that you can choose from:

    Sunglasses For Triangular Shaped Face

    Those with a triangular face have a wide jaw and a narrow forehead. Thus, if you have a triangular face and are looking for sunglasses as per face shape, you should find frames that add to the forehead and balance out the overall frame. While looking for the perfect sunglasses for triangular face shape, it would be best if you could find frames with dark upper rims and as wide in shape as your jaw. You can also give teardrop lenses a try. Wide square glasses with deep lenses work too. Here are some POPxo recommendations for you:

    Sunglasses For Diamond Face

    A diamond-shaped face is narrow at the forehead and chin and broadest at the cheekbones. While selecting sunglasses for diamond face shape you need to aim for frames that are easy on the width. Thus, you need to zero upon something that is deeper than it is wide. Anything exaggerated needs to be kept aside and you need to opt for something that has softer angles. Oval-shaped sunglasses, deep wayfarers, unswept cat eyes, and rimless glasses work best for those with a diamond face.  Here are different types of sunglasses for your face shape:

    Sunglasses For Heart-Shaped Face

    For those with a heart-shaped face, the jawline is the narrowest point that is complemented with a broad forehead and a tapered jaw. And while it might sometimes be tricky to find the right sunglasses for heart-shaped faces, it is not impossible. Cat-eyed, sport, wayfarer, and round sunglasses would work great for you. However, avoid sunglasses that are too wide. And in case you're still wondering how to pick sunglasses for your face shape, here are some options that you can choose from:

    Sunglasses For Oblong/Long Face

    Think of this face shape as an exaggerated version of an oval face shape. Those with an oblong or long face, clearly have a long, narrow face. Also, in this face type, the bottom half is longer than the top half. You should ideally look for frames that shorten the overall appearance of the face. Round frames, square wayfarers, and frames with an accented top rim, and wrap style shades serve as the perfect sunglasses for oblong face shape.

    Sunglasses For Small Face

    If you happen to be looking for sunglasses for a small face, you always need to keep this in mind: stay away from oversized frames. We highly recommend you to stick to smaller cat-eyes, light, angular frames. You can also go for vintage square glasses. Here are different types of sunglasses for your face shape:

    FAQs

    How to determine your face shape?

    To understand your face shape, you’d have to first determine the width of your jawline, cheekbones, and forehead. Also, the length of your face plays an important role here. Additionally, the angles of your face also help in determining the right face shape. If you happen to be looking for sunglasses according to face shape, then we suggest you take a measuring tape and measure your face’s dimensions so as to have a better understanding of the width and how it varies. However, the angular factor can easily be assessed without any measuring instrument. All you need to do is stand in front of a mirror and assess your face. You can also seek a friend or family member's help for the same. 

    How do I know my size in sunglasses?

    To get sunglasses in the perfect size, there are three things that you need to keep in mind: eye size, bridge size, and temple size. You can go to a store, try on a number of glasses and determine what suits you the best. You can then note down the size of this glass and make your future purchases based on the reference. 

    Can one type of sunglass suit various face shapes?

    Yes, a single type of sunglasses can suit various face types. For instance, wayfarers work equally well for those with a round face, square, diamond, and heart face. 

    What would be the best sunglasses for eye protection?

    If you want to protect yourself from the harmful UV radiation then we suggest you buy polaroid sunglasses. Most of the major brands offer polaroid lenses. 

    How do I make sure if my sunglasses are UV protected or not?

    It is actually very easy to do. You basically need to look for the following labels to know if your sunglasses are UV protected or not:  “100% protection against both UVA and UVB” or “100% protection against UV 400.”
