Finding the right pair of sunglasses for your face shape can throw up all sorts of challenges, especially if you’ve been blessed with a narrow face. Some sunglasses will make you look like a bug, others can make your proportions just look strange. It’s important to pick a pair of sunglasses that can really help to make you look stylish and well proportioned. We’ve put together a few tips and suggestions below to help those with narrow faces make the right decision when it comes to picking sunglasses.

Sunglasses for Thin Faces

Do keep frames around 130mm across the front. Anything that measures around 130mm from one side to the other will flatter a narrow face and won’t make your head look too small.

Don’t pick frames that make your head look out of proportion. Any frames that stretch past the edge of your face may make your head look a lot smaller.

Do try an interesting frame shape. Square and cat-eye shapes are a perfect choice for equaling out the size of your face.

Don’t pick a frame that’s too small. With frames that are too small they could throw your face shape off balance.
