How to pick sunglasses for your face / Solarius Spa Albuquerque

Helping you select the right frame for the right moment is a Solarius virtue. That’s why Solarius has elected not to offer our sunglasses online. You’re just too unique to trust the internet to find the right frames for you.

However, to get you thinking, here are a few tips you can utilize to find the perfect frames for your unique face.

Prioritize Proportionally – smaller sunglasses are best for smaller faces; larger sunglasses are best for larger faces. However, these are general rules that sometimes don’t apply to what’s hot in fashion.

Compliment with Contrast – Compliment the shape of your face with a contrasting shape. eg. square face try oval or round sunglasses.


Almost any style works for an oval face. Experiment with the latest fashions, such as wraparounds or shields. Square shaped frames with gently rounded edges and higher temples also look good on an oval face.

Frame suggestions : Any frame shape


Frames should make your face appear longer and thinner. Typically, select frames equal to or slightly wider than the broadest part of your face. Minimize the curves and add definition with soft, angular, rectangular styles or double brow styles. Higher temples will create a longer profile. Sunglasses with brow bars also pull the eye upward, making the face appear longer.

Frame suggestions : Wider frames with angular / rectangular styles


Your face shape has wide or high cheekbones with a narrow forehead and chin. Oval sunglasses will soften the contour of your face, although softly curved square frames will work as well. Make certain the styles you select are no wider than the top of your cheekbones.

Frame suggestions : Oval, Square, Rimless


Your face shape consists of a strong jaw line, a broad forehead and wide cheekbones. Reduce your angles with soft, curvy styles that will give your face some definition such as cat-eye styles. The classic oval also works well for a square face shape.

Frame suggestions : Oval, Round, Cat Eyes


Widen and shorten your face with sunglass styles that do not extend beyond the widest part of your face. Round or square shapes will look great. Frames with short horizontal and long vertical lines will also work. Decorative or contrasting temples add width to your face.

Frame suggestions : Round, Square


Your face has a narrow jaw and a wide forehead. Soften the lower portion of your face by accenting the eye area. Styles such as cat- eyes should angle outward at the top corner and be wide enough to balance the jaw line. You can also try metal frames with rimless bottoms.

Frame suggestions : Frames with a Straight Top Line, Cat Eyes

When you’re ready, stop by any Solarius and try on as many styles as you like. We guarantee you’ll be pleased with your selection.
