Finding the right sunnies for your face can be a struggle, but there's definitely a pair out there for you. While shopping by face shape is a great start, we got the Quays (pronounced key) to flatter every face shape, whether you’re into classic aviators like HIGH KEY or baddie shields like NIGHTFALL. Want to know how to shop for sunnies by face shape? Read on to get the rundown of the fan faves that always werk.
Shopping for Sunnies by Face Shape
Knowing your face shape can help you find a pair of sunnies that perfectly complements you. Did you know the most flattering sunglass shape for a round or oval face is square or rectangle? They help to add definition. On the flip side, those with square faces (i.e. a broad forehead and square jawline) will look great in round sunnies, which help soften more angular faces. We haven’t forgotten about you babes with heart-shaped faces (i.e. a wide forehead and narrow chin). You really can’t go wrong with cateye sunnies to balance your features.
Sunglasses for All
These rules aren't set in stone, of course. Picking sunglasses for your face shape can be helpful, but don't limit yourself to just one specific silhouette. Ultimately, you know what style makes you look and feel your best because confidence is Quay. Luckily, there are sunnies out there that suit all faces: we've rounded up a few of our most universally flattering sunglasses below.
Aviators: HIGH KEY
Real talk: You can never go wrong with HIGH KEY. This classic oversized aviator is a Quay classic, well-loved by celebrities like Jennifer Lopez. Channel all the glam vibes with its flat lenses, signature triangle notches, and adjustable nose pads. Add chains and a swipe of lip gloss for even more flex. If you want to get a little extra, grab these in the Contrast and Navigator selections. Bonus: HIGH KEY also comes sized down in mini for smaller faces, too.
Shields are great when you want to go all out with a bold look. But what about for those times when you want a fit that's just right? NIGHTFALL is Quay's smallest shield frame, so it's easy to wear with any ‘fit. This sleek one-piece also comes in polarized lenses for those glaring bright days. NIGHTFALL is the bright choice for every season, whether you're rocking faux-fur in the fall or relaxing poolside in your favorite two-piece during the summer.
We've got a public service announcement: PSA is our go-to for effortless classic cool.
