The shape of summer – pick the perfect sunglasses for you!


Now that summer is here, there’s no better time to flaunt a new pair of shades. But when looking at the variety of frames available, do you ever wonder, ‘which sunglasses suit my face?’ With so many options to choose from, it can be difficult to find a pair that works for you. In this blog, we’ll explore how to choose sunglasses for your face type. Let’s begin!

Identifying your Face Shape

The first thing to do is to identify your face shape. To do this, stand in front of a mirror and pull your hair away from your face. Observe the overall shape and curves of your head and face. Below, we’ve listed the 6 primary face shapes to look out for and the type of frames that look best with each.

Oval Face

Oval faces are longer than they are wide and tend to have a round jaw line. With balanced features, this face shape suits most types of Nike glasses frames. Styles that look great include solid frames with oversized shapes, cat eye, and bold square or round frames.

Heart-Shaped Face

A heart-shaped face is wider at the top of the face and narrows down to a small chin. Oval frames look great, as do light-colored or rimless frames. Wayfarer frames are another excellent choice because they add width to the top of the face without exaggerating the cheeks.

Square Face

A square face features a strong jawline, broad forehead, and square chin. Solid round acetate frames, cat eye frames, and oval frames are a great choice because they help soften the edges of square faces.

Round Face

A round face is identified by a wide forehead, full cheeks, and rounded chin. To add angularity to a round face, avoid round glasses and instead opt for frames that have strong edges, such as square or rectangular frames. Narrow spectacle frames also help lengthen the face while tortoiseshell frames draw attention to the natural lines of the face. Cat eye also looks great!

Oblong Face

This face shape is longer than it is wide. Prominent cheekbones and a high forehead are key characteristics. The best sunglasses for oblong faces are round or square frames that accentuate the balanced features. To add width to the face, experiment with frames that have decorative or contrasting temples or a colorful top rim.

Diamond Face

Those with a diamond shaped face have broad, dramatic cheekbones. This face shape is also narrow at the eye line and jawline. While oval shaped frames help soften the features of this face, rimless and cat eye styles draw emphasis to the cheekbones and should be avoided.
