Age Old Question - Answered!

Alright alright, you've waited long enough.

Now that you have determined your face shape, it's time to put two and two together and figure out what sunglasses work best for each shape.

Let's break it down by each face shape:
  1. Oval - If this is your face shape, you're luck! Just about any frame shape works best with your face shape... BUT be sure to avoid over-sized sunglasses. Some sunglasses we recommend for you are Oakley Half Wire , Lacoste LA12419, and these polarized Ray-Bans aviators.
  2. Round - Those of you who fall into the round face shape category look good in most frame shapes as well. However, it is best to avoid round frames which will make your face look rounder. You want to accent your features and angular/geometric shaped glasses will help! We highly recommend these Top Bar Square Ray-Bans.
  3. Square - On the contrary to people with a Round face shape, square face shapes are PERFECT for rounded sunglass frames but not angular frames. These Ralph Lauren sunglasses and Prada sunglasses are ideal for square face shapes!
  4. Long/Oblong - If you have an oblong face shape, it is best to avoid short frames as they accentuate your longer face. It is best to choose sunglasses with tall frames such as these Ralph Lauren sunglasses.
  5. Heart - Heart-shaped faces are a little more of a challenge to find the perfect frame for your face. Look for frames that are heavier on the bottom to add width to the lower face and soften the forehead. Sunglasses such as these D&G sunglasses and these Arnette High Roller sunglasses.
It's not always easy to pick the best pair of sunglasses for ourselves, but if you refer to the above information and our Sunglass Warehouse post on face shape, you will be well on your way to looking good while protecting your eyes!
