Many people have difficulty shopping for sunglasses because they are not sure which types will flatter them. This article will help you find the style best suited to you.

The key to finding the right sunglasses for your face is balance.


To find your best shape of sunglasses, try to flatter your features by balancing them out with the shape of your sunglasses. In other words, whatever the shape of your face is, wear the opposite shape of sunglasses. For example if you have a round face you should wear square or rectangular shaped sunglasses and if you have a square face you should wear rounded sunglasses.

In terms of size, you should try to match the size of the sunglasses to the size of your face. For example, if you have a small face with delicate features, smaller sunglasses are best. If you have a large face with bold facial features, bigger dramatic sunglasses are best.

An exception to these rules are those people who are not looking to balance their features, but instead want to exagerate or call attention to a feature they like. For example, if you want to call attention to your small delicate features you could wear large sunglasses to make your features look even smaller and more delicate. If you want to call attention to a square or angular face, you could wear sunglasses with hard angles to draw attention to this feature.

If you have a particularly small or narrow face, consider trying child sized sunglasses. On very petite adult faces they will look well proportioned.

Confused ? Which glasses suit you ?

Lastly, think about whether the latest trend flatters your face shape or if a more classical style is better for you.

  1. Like like like! A very useful article for everyone who wants to shop a new pair of sunglasses for the summer, and has trouble finding the one that suits them best. I only disagree to the fact that Linda Evangelista has got a diamond shaped face: I believe it’s clearly an oval shape. Congratulations for the blog!

  2. Thank you for your comment!!! 🙂

    A diamond face shape has a long and narrow appearance. The widest part of the face is the cheekbones, while the forehead and jaw line are narrow. It features a pointy chin.

    However, she is so beautiful I guess almost everything would suit her!
    Have a nice day!
