What Sunglasses Fit My Face Best?

Sunglasses are a must-have accessory. Quality eyewear makes you look stylish, but it also helps to shield your eyes from glare and UV rays. If you’re searching for the perfect pair, Peepers has you covered with on-trend colors and shapes for work or travel.

If you’re wondering “What sunglasses fit my face?” — we can help. As makers of quality eyeglasses, we believe there is a style and frame shape for everyone. This guide will tell you whether designs like square glasses or aviator sunglasses would look best on you. Discover the eyewear that matches you so you can hit the beach or pool with confidence. 

Square Sunglasses 

Square-shaped sunglasses are attractive for nearly every face shape. They look especially flattering on men and women with round or oval faces. If this sounds like you, try a pair of oversized frames. You’ll love the look of chunky, angular eyeglasses. Feel vacation-ready in a two-toned pattern like black marble and mint or cobalt and tortoise. 

More stylish square frames include lightweight ombre frames with playful print temples and a subtle curvature near the end pieces. On-trend color combinations like spice and leopard tortoise or purple and floral make this eyewear a must-have for summer. Get a wear-everywhere look with soft square eyeglasses in a transparent acetate material with gold accent pins and gradient lenses. Some of our best-selling colors and prints for square sunglasses include amber and Tokyo tortoise. 

Round Sunglasses  

Round sunglasses are on-trend. The relaxed round silhouette matches everything from swimsuits with an animal print to boho-inspired summer dresses. They’re incredibly flattering in bold hues and bright colors. Round glasses are usually best for square or long oval faces since they help soften and balance out angular features. 

If you’re interested in round polarized sunglasses or reading sunglasses, how about a chunky frame with an elevated bridge? This retro look pairs well with white tees and jean jackets. Make them your own with a classic color like black or gray tortoise. If you like the look of a single brow bar, Peepers are exceptionally stylish with a color-blocking motif like black and tortoise. This wear-everywhere style is attractive for both men and women. Wear them with a collared work shirt or a clean cotton t-shirt in a neutral color. 

We recommend free-spirited round sunglasses with comfortable spring hinges for the creative soul. Handcrafted details like quality hinges encourage longer wear. Vintage-inspired colors like ginger or amber will make them perfect for the great outdoors. One of the hottest styles is the flattering hexagon frame with a fresh and energetic flair. Choose from fun color gradients, including mint and pink or wine and purple. 

Cat Eye Sunglasses 

A pair of cat eye glasses are bold and feminine. This shape combines well with sunglasses featuring playful colors and floral patterns. They’re a beautiful accessory any time of year but best-sellers for wedding parties and tropical vacations. Everyone should try cat eye sunglasses, but they are most flattering for round faces since they include angular lines and upsweeps near the brow line and end pieces. 

Cat eye glasses create instant depth and dimension, particularly near the eyebrows and brow line. If you have an oval-shaped face, cat eye sunglasses can draw attention away from length toward the bottom of the face. If you have more prominent features, designs with round features and curvature will create the perfect balance between striking and demure. 

On-trend styles include cat eye glasses with dark gradient lenses and bold patterns like a teal horn or leopard tortoise. Add personality to any ensemble with color-blocked combinations featuring vibrant hues like teal and lime. Trending colors in cat eye sunglasses include blush pink and black marble. 

Other Frame Shapes  

Rectangle-shaped sunglasses evoke a dreamy, otherworldly feel. They’re wider than tall, making them an excellent frame shape for balancing out an elongated face. If you prefer something more luxe and feminine, we have clear acetate eyewear with a blue-colored lens gradient and an adventurous style. Don’t forget about aviator sunglasses, one of the quintessential summer looks. They’re popular because they’re attractive on both men and women with various face shapes. 

You should also consider aviators if you have an oval or square-shaped face. Heart-shaped faces will always look amazing in aviator sunglasses, especially with rims in a lightweight acetate or metal material. Of course, you can’t go wrong with black or gold, but you can also choose a color like blue or silver.
