Looking for the perfect sunglasses that actually look good on you? In order to help smaller-faced women out, we’ve found 10 of the best designer sunglasses for small and narrow faces.
Finding the right pair of sunglasses that suits your face shape can be a daunting task. That’s why today, we’re sharing the most popular choices that look great with small face shapes, as well as the most important considerations you should have when you’re on the lookout for the perfect pair of sunglasses.
So, what types of sunglasses look best on smaller faces?
If you have a petite face with delicate features, you want to steer clear of big, oversized sunglasses that can overpower your face and its features. Instead, opt for leaner sunglasses with oval, cat-eye or rectangular frames.
Even though small sunglasses in all of these shapes will look good, you might want to consider a few additional things.
If you have a round face, go for a pair of rectangular sunglasses that balance out the roundness. On the other hand, if your face is more square, opt for oval sunglasses.
Those who are lucky to have an oval face can go for both, however, we would still advise steering clear of round frames because they are typically quite large and can dominate your face.
Those with smaller faces should also favor top-heavy frames, such as cat-eye frames. These frames tend to be universally flattering, but just make sure that you choose a pair of cat-eye sunglasses that is on the smaller side.
Furthermore, before purchasing a pair of sunglasses, it’s smart to measure your face so that you can compare it with the product’s frame size.
With this said, here are our top choices designer sunglasses for small faces that can be effortlessly purchased online. Plus, all of them can be returned if they’re not a perfect fit, so rest assured! Alternatively, you can always pop into your local eyewear store to try them on.
Now, without further ado, let’s jump into the list of the best sunglasses!
