Best Sunglasses for Your Face Shape: Oval

Got an oval face? You’re in luck when it comes to finding sunglasses, since you have a naturally symmetrical face that looks fab in most frames. Here’s the lowdown on your gorgeous shape and which frames go best with it as we’ll show you ahead, there are many stylish sunglasses for an oval face.

What Is My Face Shape?

Before we dive into the best sunglasses for oval faces, let’s break down what an oval face looks like and what other shapes are out there. 

Oval Faces

Oval faces are taller than they’re wide, and they’re the widest around the eye area. Since they feature subtle curves, they go flawlessly with frames that create angles. A rectangular frame is arguably the best sunglass shape for an oval face, but cat eyes, shields, and other geometric picks are also go-to's.

Other Face Shapes

  • Round: Round faces are as tall as they’re wide, and they generally feature soft curves. Pop on frames that create lines and angles for balance with their curves.

  • Heart: Heart faces follow a heart-shaped silhouette where the forehead is the widest part of the face and the jaw is the narrowest area. Round and tapered styles complement them perfectly.

  • Square: Square faces flaunt angular features, so round frames soften them while rectangular ones sharpen them.

  • Triangle: Triangle faces feature narrow foreheads and broad jaws, so they’re the opposite of heart-shaped ones. They look great with browline, cat eye, and square sunglasses for a polished look. 
  • Smaller: If you’ve got a smaller face, get the just-right size when you shop our small and medium frames.

Frames to Avoid for Oval Face Shapes

Oversized Frames

Frames that are too big may throw off the balance of an oval face shape, but that doesn’t mean you have to steer clear of oversized frames. Experiment with different styles to find what works best for you. Use our Virtual Try-On Tool to see whether or not you’re vibing with a frame.
