When purchasing a pair of sunglasses, you want to make sure not only the sunglasses look amazing but also that they are the right fit for your face. This guide will help to answer your questions about what styles fit best for your face shape and we will recommend a few of our favourite silhouettes for specific face shapes. The final face shape in our guide is oval!
What does it mean to have a ‘oval’ face?
An oval face shape means your face is slightly longer than it is wide, with the cheekbones being the widest part of the face. The jaw and forehead are rounded while the sides of the face are slightly curved.
What are the best silhouettes for ‘oval’ faces?
Consider yourself lucky if you have an oval face shape because it is known in the eyewear industry as the ideal shape. Because of the balanced proportions of those with an oval face, when it comes to choosing the right frame the world is your oyster!
A tip we have though is, try not to detract from the natural balance of your face, so be careful when selecting oversized frames. The ideal frames for an oval face are those that are slightly wider that the broadest part of your face, highlighting your faces natural proportions.
