Oval - Oval faces have it made because literally every frame looks awesome! Oval faces have gently rounded, fairly even features, and pretty much any style of vintage sunglasses is going to work well on them. Designer to sport, fashion to function, everything works. Just don’t get huge frames that block out those pretty symmetrical features; choose sunglasses that cover the face from the eyebrows to the cheekbones.
Oblong - Oblong faces, also called rectangular, are long and narrow with few angles. An oblong face works especially well with larger size sunglasses. Also, larger Wayfarer or rectangular lenses and sunglasses with thick frames add width to a long face. Vintage sunglasses styles that feature sharp angles and bold lines will give oblong faces an edge, sharpening otherwise soft features. This group is going to turn heads in Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses in their amazing variety of frame and lens combinations and the oversized look of Carrera Porsche Design 5621 and 5623 sunglasses with interchangeable lenses or the ultra modern look of Bausch & Lomb Wings sunglasses. Oblong faces should avoid small frames.
Heart - Heart-shaped faces, sometimes called triangle, are widest at the temples and narrowest at the chin. Sunglasses that feature wide lower edges with no straight lines along the top work especially well for this facial group because they shift attention downward and elongate the face. Cat-eye styles or sunglasses that feature rounded edges are ideal for giving the wearer a more balanced look. This face shape is a good opportunity to consider vintage Ray-Ban aviator and bullet hole shooter styles so you can enjoy the benefits of vintage Bausch & Lomb specialty lenses such as Ray-Ban Kalichrome, Ambermatic, and Chromax sunglasses and shooters.
