Posted by Revant Optics on September 19, 2019

Faces come in all shapes and sizes, just like sunglasses. The key to finding sunglasses that fit well and look great is matching the frame shape to the face shape. If this sounds like torture to you, don't worry about it. Whether you have an oval face, round face or anything in between, we're here to help you find the best glasses and frame shape for your face.

Here's a helpful primer for beginners: There are four common face shapes, and each of these shapes has common characteristics.

Square face shape

Broad jawline.
More angular features, equally wide cheekbones, forehead and jaw.
Semi-rimless or round sunglasses can help balance a prominent jaw and square face.
Recommended frames: Oakley Latch, Ray-Ban Aviator Classic, Ray-Ban Clubmaster

Oval face shape
Balanced proportions. Soft, narrower forehead and jaw.
Tapered jawline, slightly defined cheekbones and a long face.
The best looks for an oval face shape are from square frames, round frames, or bold geometric frames like aviator sunglasses or oversized sunglasses.
Recommended frames: Oakley Holbrook, Oakley Frogskins

Round face shape
Forehead and jaw height and width are approximately equal. Softer angles with slightly wider cheekbones.
Horizontal or rectangular frames give your face a longer appearance.
Recommended frames: Ray-Ban New Wayfarer, Maui Jim Red Sands

Heart face shape
Widest at the forehead and narrow at the jaw and chin.
High, sloping cheekbones and a heart-shaped face.
Low profile glasses frames are good for heart-shaped faces because they elongate your look and even out proportions.
Recommended frames: Ray-Ban Aviator, Maui Jim Wiki Wiki
