Got an oval face? You’re in luck when it comes to sunnies selections. You have a naturally symmetrical face that looks fab with most frame shapes. Here’s the lowdown on your gorgeous shape and which frames go best with it.
What Is My Face Shape?
Before we dive into the best sunglasses for oval faces, let’s chat about what an oval face looks like and what other shapes are out there.
Oval faces are taller than they’re wide, and they’re the widest around the eye area. They go flawlessly with frames that create angles, so there are many options to choose from. Classic angular square and rectangle glasses are perfect, but cateyes, shields, and other geometric picks are also go-to's.
Other Face Shapes
Round: Round faces are as tall as they’re wide. Pop on frames that create lines and angles for balance.
Heart: Heart faces have wider foreheads and narrow jaws, and round and tapered styles complement them perfectly.
Square: Square faces flaunt angular features, so round frames soften them while rectangular ones sharpen them.
