Fashionable sunglasses for small faces are a challenge to find. At EyeBuyDirect, we’ve put our eye for designs to good use, creating large, medium, and small sunglasses for men and women. With our selection of small-framed sunglasses, your size no longer limits your eyewear options.
Embrace tortoiseshell, striped, or floral-patterned frames in classic oval, wayfarer, browline, and aviator styles — all sized to fit a small face.
If your frames are too narrow for your face, they will put unnecessary pressure on your temples causing discomfort. A pair that’s too wide can be painful on your ears and fall off your face due to a loose fit. For an ideal fit, look for a frame that is only slightly wider than your face. If you already have a frame that fits well, measure it lengthways along the front of your frame to find the perfect width.
Finding the Best Temple Length
Finding the right temple length for your small sunglasses is another important step in finding the perfect fit. The temples should curve behind your ears comfortably, and the rest of the arm should reach evenly along your face. This measurement has a bit more flexibility in terms of range compared to the others. Try smaller lengths if you have a small face.
Bridge Width for Small Frame Sunglasses
You may think bridge width is included in the frame width, but this is a separate measurement that determines how the frame sits on your nose. Your nose is basically the anchor point of your frame. The nose bridge keeps the frame balanced and distributes weight evenly, making your shades comfy to wear.
Which Eyewear Styles Suit Small Faces
Round Small Frame Sunglasses
The best sunglasses for small faces are on the smaller side themselves — to ensure they don’t overcrowd your face and make it look even smaller. Small round frames make great sunglasses for people with smaller faces.
Semi-Rimless Small Frame Sunglasses
Semi-rimless frames add visual weight to the top part of your face, and browline frames are a classic and fashionable choice in this frame style. However, if you have a small face, it's a good idea to avoid oversized versions.
Small Square Sunglasses
Square shaped sunglasses frames are an easy choice for people with round and oval faces. They work best as small sunglasses if they aren’t too thick, so they don’t overpower your facial features.
With EyeBuyDirect, finding fashionable sunglasses for small faces is not an issue. Picking just one pair is, though! Our sensible prices make it more than practical to treat yourself to the sunglasses you want, without compromising your budget.
