Choosing Sunglasses That Complement Your Face Shape

Posted by Ed Young on

Sunglasses are a beloved practical accessory for shielding your eyes from the sun's harsh rays; but they're also a fashion statement that can enhance your overall look. With so many styles out there, you may feel intimidated when trying to select your ideal pair. 

Let’s help you choose the right sunglasses for your face shape that can elevate your style and highlight your best features, ensuring you look effortlessly chic and stylish wherever you go.

Facial Shape and Features

  • Before choosing a style or colour, try to determine your face shape, such as round, square, oval, heart, or diamond. You can identify your face shape by looking at the width of your forehead, cheekbones,and jawline. If this is difficult, identify if you have a rounder, softer face or one that is more angular with sharp, defined lines. 
  • For round faces, square or rectangular frames create contrast and elongate your face. Avoid round or oversized frames, as they can exaggerate the roundness of your face. 
  • A square face can be softened with rounded or oval frames. They offset the sharpness of your features and add a touch of sophistication. Avoid choosing boxy frames, as they can highlight the squareness of your face. Instead, opt for curved or cat-eye frames to complement your facial structure. 
  • For face shapes that are less defined, experiment with versatile styles, like these Aviator sunglasses in the Zippo Range. Just ensure that the sunglasses maintain the natural balance of your face and do not overwhelm your features. 

    Face Length and Width

    • Choose frames that are proportionate to the width of your face for a flattering look. 
    • If your face is very narrow, avoid sunglasses that extend too much to the sides of your face. 
    • For a short, petite face, stay clear of oversized sunglasses that hide your attractive features. 
    • Heart-shaped faces tend to have broad foreheads, high cheekbones, and a narrow chin.
    • When selecting sunglasses for a heart-shaped face, aim to balance the width of your forehead with your chin. Cat-eye, butterfly, or rimless frames are excellent choices for heart-shaped faces, as they complement the natural contours of your face.

    Personal Taste

    Last but not least, have a bit of fun and don’t be afraid to choose sunglasses that match your personal taste. You might go for something sporty, elegant or classic. The most important thing is to choose something you are comfortable with, and don’t give into trends without considering the shape of your face and your unique features.
