Best Sunglasses For Smaller Faces
Fit is QUAY. Those with petite faces can find it challenging to find a just-right fit, but there’s no need to sacrifice style or comfort. At QUAY, we offer a wide range of scaled-down sunnies in our Small Sunglasses and Glasses Frames Collection. If you’re wondering which pairs you can werk with a smaller face, read ahead for the deets.
What Is My Face Shape
While there are versatile sunnies that complement many face shapes, one size might not fit all. Knowing your face shape and size can help you find a head-turning pair of specs that you’ll love.
Size matters. If you have a small face, you might have to hunt hard to find a comfy pair of shades or glasses. QUAY’s collection includes minis and scaled-down frames so those with smaller faces can flex confidently with the perfect fit. (Side note: if you’re on the lookout for the best kids’ sunglasses, minis can also be an excellent solution.)
Other Face Shapes
Square: Square faces have angular features, so contrasting round glasses or complementing square frames go well with them.
Round: Round faces are as wide as they're long. Frames that feature angles and straight lines bring balance to this soft silhouette.
Oval: Oval faces also have soft features, but they’re longer than they’re wide. Like round faces, these faces can werk frames with angles and straight lines.
Heart: Heart-shaped faces feature wide foreheads and narrow chins. Those with this face shape can sweeten it up with squares and rounds that contrast a pointed jawline.
Triangle: Triangle faces are inverted heart-shaped faces, coming with a narrow forehead and broad jawline. Bold colors and shapes (think: ovals and cat eyes) bring attention to the top half of a triangular face.

Frames to Avoid
Small faces can flex it in many frame shapes, but it may be helpful to know what styles to avoid. One style to skip is the oversized look, as sunnies labeled as oversized or large may be too big on petite faces. That said, it’s still possible to find sleek petite sunglasses — dig into QUAY’s Mini Collection to find aviators, rounds, squares, and more.
