The most flattering sunglasses have the right fit. And if you’ve got a narrow or petite face, it’s important to pay attention to the frame measurements. If the lenses are too wide or too tall, the frames will overwhelm your small face. If most shades are a bit too wide, you need narrow frame sunglasses.
Here are some things to keep in mind when shopping for sunglasses for a small face
- Look for sunglasses that have a lens measurement at 55mm or less.
- Smile, then if your frames are pushed up by your cheekbones, they might be too big. If sunglasses go too low below the cheekbones or too high above the brow, they’re likely to overwhelm your small face.
- Don’t instantly shy away from large sunglasses. Look for sunglasses with small lens sizes accentuated by a thick frame.
- If you have a pair of shades that fit well, look for the sizing stamped on the inside of the temple.
