Basically, we try to understand what the outline of your face is, not the actual measurements.

Again, the goal of measuring is not to yield precise measurements but simply to get a better understanding of the proportions between the length and the width of your face.

First, you want to measure the length of your face as an outline.
Second, you want to do the width of the forehead, width of your cheeks, and the width of your jaw. All of these measurements should be taken at the widest point in outline so it’s important to keep your measurement flat and not adjusted on your face.

OBLONG
An oblong face is longer than it is wide. Your jawline, cheeks, and your forehead are all about the same width.

Go for larger sunglasses. What’s also good for oblong face shape is a thicker frame. You should avoid frameless sunglasses as well as small ones.

HEART
Your jawline is pointed and your cheeks are wider and your forehead is even wider, creating kind of an inverted triangle.

You want sunglasses that point down to accentuate your jawline so you create a harmonious overall look.

SQUARE
As long as it is wide. The jawline, cheek, and forehead are all about the same width.

Go with sunglasses that have round shapes because it harmonizes well with your otherwise square lines.

You definitely avoid square sunglasses because otherwise, you’ll look like a box.

OVAL
Think about it like an egg upside down. A longer face than it is wide. Forehead is a little wider and then your jawline is a little slimmer.

If that’s you, basically, you have the sunglass jackpot because you can wear any kind of sunglass and they will all look good on you.

ROUND
As long as it is wide with a wide cheekline, slimmer jawline, and slimmer forehead.

Go for a geometrical pattern or something more square because again, you want to create that even, balanced effect so if you have a round face, you have the sharper corners to make you look good.

DIAMOND
Wide cheekbones, pointy chin, a slightly slimmer forehead.

You want something that’s not too big and somewhat round. If you want a pair of wayfarers, skip the big ones and get the slightly smaller version.

SKIN TONE
To determine your skin tone, look at the inside of your forearm. Go outside for natural light.

If you have pale skin, your forearm has a bluish and slightly pinkish undertone, you should go with pastel colored frames or maybe blue. Other tones are too harsh and simply won’t look good on you.

If you have medium colored skin with yellow and green undertones, you want something like a tortoise shell, brown, amber, or green because it harmonizes best with your skin tone. If you have pink and blue undertones, it’s a cool skin tone and colors like blue, red, brown, or even green work well for you.

If you have darker skin with a warm yellowish or green undertone, go with metal frames in dark brown, or cognac, maybe even amber because that’s the best color scheme for that skin tone.

When you have dark skin with a cool undertone, you want strong, dark colors such as black, dark blue, or dark brown because it creates the best balance between the contrast of your skin tone and your sunglasses.

Alright, so in order to find the best pair of sunglasses for you, you got to understand what your face shape is, what works for you.

Once you determine your skin tone, you can really narrow down what type of sunglasses work for you and it’ll be much easier to pick the right ones from the 500 other ones you find at stores.

I have kind of an oblong face shape so I go with a larger frame that is slightly thicker and I have this kind of tortoise shell color with the darker lenses and it goes really well with my overall medium skin tone that is slightly more yellowish and green with the undertones.

    Hmm with 8 inches in length, 7 1/2 from temple to temple, 6 in the cheek, 5 in the jaw line and a slight curving tapered chin I can't tell if I'm round or oval. Curse you between rounded and tapered chin!

    The sunglasses itself are more important than the fact it fits to the face. So for hot guys or those with muscles or confident guys only Cazal sunglasses are highly recommended because they look very expensive and everybody will remind you with them

    Dumbest thing I have ever heard of. Used to be taught in school for opticians. You know, back in the day when all lenses were glass and there were limited shapes due to materials.

    Not relevant anymore.

    It's subjective to the wearer.
    That is all that matters.

    Thanks, Raphael! This is a good starting place for me to find a pair of sunglasses that go nicely with classic menswear. Unfortunately, I have a giant noggin (probably because the rest of me is giant sized as well) so I'm still looking for glasses that are wide enough for my face, but not weirdly so.

    These sunglasses really dont suit you. Especially the colour that is kinda childish brings my childhood back, when i wore any glass i was given to wear.
