Tips for Choosing the Best Sunglasses for Your Face Shape

Last updated 5 years ago

Summer is here, and that means it’s time to pull out your favorite pair of sunglasses. With the bright summer sun shining down on us, it’s important to make sure we take care of not just our skin, but our eyes as well. Sunglasses help protect the eyes from the sun, preventing inconvenient watering and letting you see clearly. If you’ve been wearing the same sunglasses for the past few summers, then it may be time to try something new! Sunglasses don’t just protect the eyes—they also work as an accessory to any outfit. You want to pick the right sunglasses to provide the perfect look.

To find your face shape, pull or slick your hair back and look into a clean mirror. Using a lipstick or other non-permanent marker, trace the outline of your face onto the mirror. This will let you determine just what type of face shape you have. Once you know your face shape, you’ll be able to determine which sunglasses are right for you:

  • Square shaped. Look for sunglasses with softer and rounder edges to help soften up the angles of the face. It’s important to add contrasting elements with the accessories that you wear. Because a square face has such strong lines and angles, it’s easy to soften it up with rounder shapes on the sunglasses.


  • Oval shaped. There are a variety of great styles that can complement an oval shaped face. People with oval shaped faces have naturally even proportions, meaning they do not have to try to contrast with their accessories—most styles look great!


  • Round shaped. Sunglasses can help lengthen and lean out a round face that may be a bit full in the cheeks. Experts suggest sharp lines and angles, as well as horizontal designs to lengthen and thin out the face by drawing attention to the top half.

No matter what style you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it here at EJ’s Sunglasses. We carry some of the top names, including Adidas, Quiksilver, and Versace. Visit us online or call today at (888) 851-3892 for more information!
