Get iconic, face-flattering looks with oval sunglasses
Oval sunglasses were originally made famous by glamorous stars of the past like Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly, and Elizabeth Taylor. Then Kurt Cobain sported a pair of white-framed oval shaped sunglasses in the early 90s and the style made a comeback. The latest revival of these classic shades has come from style icons like Rihanna, Kendall Jenner, and Beyonce, all of whom have been spotted in oval sunglass frames.
The soft curves of oval eyewear are ideal for softening strong jaw lines, high cheekbones, and angular chins. For that reason, oval sunnies are considered the best sunglasses for a heart-shaped face, great sunglasses for square faces, and excellent triangle face shape sunglasses. If you need help figuring out which shape best describes your face, check out our Face Shape guide.
