Sunglasses are more than just an accessory – they're a statement piece that can elevate any outfit and protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. However, not all sunglasses are created equal, and finding the right shape to compliment your face can make all the difference. Whether you have a round, oval, square, or heart-shaped face, there's a perfect pair of shades out there for you.

If your face is round with soft, curved lines and similar width and length, you'll want to create contrast and add definition. Opt for sunglasses with strong angles and geometric shapes such as square or rectangular frames. These styles will help elongate your face and add structure, balancing out the curves.

Recommended Styles: Amalfi, Bahamas, Barbados, Caicos, Cannes, Cayman, Hamptons, Ibiza, London, Manhattan, Miami, Milan, Milos, Panama, Paris, Rio, Saint-Tropez, Santorini, Sydney


Blessed with an oval face shape? Consider yourself lucky because this versatile shape suits most sunglass styles. With balanced proportions and gentle curves, an oval face can pull off almost any frame shape. Experiment with aviators, cat-eye, round, or rectangular frames to highlight your features and showcase your personal style.

Recommended Styles: Amalfi, Burbank, Cannes, Capri, Cayman, Florence, Hamptons, Hollywood, Madrid, Manhattan, Laguna, Madrid, Malibu, Milos, Monaco, Mykonos, Panama, Paris, Rio, Sanibel, Savannah, Santorini, Tokyo, Venice, Versailles


A square face is characterized by strong jawlines, wide cheekbones, and a broad forehead. To soften the angles and add some curves, opt for sunglasses with rounded or oval frames. Styles like round, aviators, or butterfly shapes will complement your face shape beautifully by providing contrast to the sharp lines, creating a harmonious look.

Recommended Styles: Burbank, Bahamas, Barbados, Cannes, Capri, Hollywood, Madrid, Malibu, Monaco, Mykonos, Paris, Sanibel, Savannah, Tobago, Vegas, Versailles


Heart-shaped faces typically feature a wider forehead and cheekbones that taper down to a narrower chin. To balance the proportions and draw attention away from the forehead, choose sunglasses with bottom-heavy frames or rimless styles. Cat-eye, aviators, or round frames with detailing on the lower half can help accentuate the lower part of your face, creating a flattering silhouette.

Recommended Styles: Caicos, Cannes, Hamptons, Hollywood, Ibiza, London, Malibu, Manhattan, Milan, Milos, Monaco, Newport, Paris, Rio, Saint-Tropez, Sanibel, Savannah, Sydney, Tokyo, Vegas


While choosing a new pair of sunglasses is mainly a personal preference, these guidelines are intended to make the choice a little bit easier. Finding the perfect pair of sunglasses is all about understanding your face shape and choosing frames that complement your features. Whether you prefer classic aviators, trendy cat-eye frames, or bold oversized styles, there's a pair out there that's just right for you.
