Best Sunglasses for Your Face Shape: Triangle

Choosing glasses for a triangle face can be quite the adventure because it pairs perfectly with so many bold, statement frames. But what exactly is a triangle face shape? A triangle face is the opposite of a heart-shaped face, featuring a narrow forehead and broad jawline. If you have a triangular face and want to find eyewear staples for your shape, read on for the lowdown.

What Is My Face Shape? 

To find a pair of sunglasses that fits your face best, it helps to know what your face shape actually is. To help you shop for sunglasses by face shape, here’s a quick guide on all of the face shapes, starting with triangle faces. 

Triangle Faces

Triangle faces are essentially inverted heart-shaped faces — they’re broad at the bottom and narrow at the top. The just-right glasses will add width and bring attention to the top of the face. Those with this face shape should flaunt frames with bold colors and shapes, especially when it comes to the upper part of the frames. The best frame silhouettes for triangle face shapes include statement-making browline, cat eye, and square glasses.

Other Face Shapes

  • Square: Square faces are all about angular features, so they pair well with round frames that soften them and square frames that enhance them. 
  • Round: Round faces are as wide as they’re long, and they generally have soft curves. Those with round faces can accentuate their soft features with frames that showcase straight lines and create angles. 
  • Oval: Oval faces are slightly different from round ones in that they’re longer than they’re wide. Frames that feature straight lines and create angles will also bring balance here.
  • Heart-Shaped: Heart-shaped faces are those where the forehead is wider than the chin. They look great with rounded and tapered frames that highlight their features. 
  • Smaller: Size definitely matters. While we like a sized-up look, you can also shop for small and medium frames at QUAY.

Finding the Best Sunglasses for a Triangle Face

Finding the perfect fit and style for triangular faces doesn’t have to be a struggle. There are plenty of stylish sunglasses that can complement your face shape and turn heads your way. Here are just a few of our faves. 

Browline Sunglasses: EVASIVE

Level up your look with browline sunglasses. Because browline sunglasses feature a bold upper half, they can bring extra definition to the top portion of a triangle face shape. Go for a vibe that’s a little mysterious and EVASIVE. This statement-making frame features a strong browline, which will elevate your look as well as complement your face shape. Wear it with a fitted blazer or your go-to denim jacket — it’s that versatile.

Cat Eye Sunglasses: IN PURSUIT

Cat eye sunglasses are perfect for triangle faces. Because of their bold, slightly winged upper edges, they add width to narrow foreheads and complement broad jawlines. To match a triangular face shape, stay IN PURSUIT of a fashion-forward cat eye with sleek metal arms. Grab these edgy frames in gradient or fade


Square Sunglasses: BY THE WAY

A square frame with a wide browline perfectly balances out a narrower forehead in a triangle face. We love a chic oversized square, BY THE WAY. This sleek frame comes in tried-and-true colorways such as black, tortoiseshell, and white, so you’ll always look classically cool. It pairs perfectly with everything from a leather jacket to your beach bikini — add a statement bold lip or pair of hoop earrings to tie together your ‘fit. 

Frames to Avoid for Triangle Face Shapes

Some shades may not suit triangle faces. Round and small frames, for example, may not put enough emphasis on the forehead. But you know your angles best, so don’t be afraid to break some rules if you find the right frames for you. There are actually many versatile sunglasses that suit all faces.
