The Ultimate Guide to Choosing the Perfect Sunglasses for Your Face Shape
When it comes to sunglasses, selecting the best pair can be intimidating.
With so many varied shapes, sizes, and styles out there, sometimes it’s hard to gauge which ones will best suit YOUR face.
We at Detour Sunglasses, as a bunch of people with varied face shapes, understand that picking the sunglasses that make you look AND feel your best can be messy. That's why we here at Detour HQ put our ‘heads’ together to make this ultimate guide to help you pick the perfect sunglasses for your face shape.
Round Facial Shape
If you have a round facial shape, the best sunglasses for you are those with established angles and add definition. Look for sunglasses that hold a strong brow line or a rectangular shape since they will help to elongate your face and make it look that much more slim. Take a look at the Floaties and Castaway Collections if you want the best fitting glasses. Avoid sunglasses with circular frames, they will only exaggerate the roundness of your face.
Oval Facial Shape
If you have an oval facial shape, most sunglasses will suit you! Look for frames that are proportional to your face, meaning don’t go out and get glasses that are comically large or small for your face. The Aviator style, like our Coastal Collection, is a great choice for those with an oval facial shape, Aviator sunglasses are a great choice for those with an oval facial shape, they are stylish, versatile, and timeless. If you have an oval shaped big head, check out our Big Kahuna Collection.
Square Facial Shape
If you have a square facial shape, you'll want to look for sunglasses that soften your features. Round or oval frames are an excellent choice since they will balance out your angular features, and there’s few frames better than the Ocean Ave Collection. Square or rectangular frames are a no go, they will only exaggerate the ‘angular-ness’ of your face.
Heart Facial Shape
If you have a heart-shaped facial shape, look for sunglasses that balance out the width of your forehead and the narrowness of your chin. The super stylish ‘Cat-eye’ style is a great choice for those with a heart-shaped face. They draw attention to your sharp cheekbones and balance out the rest of your face. The Boardwalk, Hurricane, and Riptide Collections will make your features pop — check them out and find your style. If possible, avoid sunglasses with dense top frames since they will only exaggerate the width of your forehead.
Diamond Facial Shape
If you have a diamond facial shape, look for sunglasses that balance out your high cheekbones and narrow forehead/Chin. Oval or rounded frames are a great choice since they will soften your features, essentially bringing balance to your face shape. If this is you, take a look at the sleek and minimalist Bermuda Collection. Square or rectangular frames are a no-go, they will only make your face seem more angular.
