With summer quickly approaching, sunglasses are a must-have accessory to help protect your eyes from the sun while also adding a unique twist to your wardrobe. Though sunglasses look great on everyone, some styles may work better for women who have more oval or heart-shaped faces. Here are a few of our sunglasses for women that best suit those facial types:
Cat-eye sunglasses are a classic style that has been popular for decades. They are characterized by their upward-sloping outer edges, which make a cat-like shape. This style is particularly flattering for women with more feminine face shapes because it accentuates the cheekbones and creates a lifted, long look.
When shopping for cat-eye sunglasses, look for frames slightly wider than your face to balance out your features. Avoid frames that are too oversized, as they can overwhelm a delicate face shape. Vint & York offers twenty-three different cat eye sunglass styles, making sure you find the perfect pair.
Our wildly popular 'Doll Too' sunglasses are the perfect accessory to flatter your features. With these glasses, you can wear that alluring retro cat-eye shape on a warm summer day at the ocean, the pool, or patio. 'Doll Too' comes in a beautiful burgundy red and a cool jade green.
If you're looking for something that makes a statement, try on a pair of our Show-Off sunglasses. These bold, oversized lenses come in red, black, or brown. With their luxurious gold accents, vibrant, distinctive hues, and textures, these retro-inspired beauties elevate the cat-eye style to a whole new level.
Aviator sunglasses are a classic style that has been around for decades. The style has a teardrop shape that elongates the face and makes it appear slimmer. This is particularly flattering for women with round or square face shapes, as it helps to balance out their facial features. The curved shape of the lenses also softens angular features, creating a more feminine and elegant look.
'The Fairbanks' is one of Vint & York's most classic pair of aviators. With faux leather trim available in three colors—bright teal, chic crimson, or subdued black—this frame turns plain aviator sunglasses into a distinctive trademark accessory.
Another flattering option is the 'Attaboy.' This style is slightly more geometric, providing a flattering angle for feminine face shapes. The Navigator Style is a trend that has been around for a while, and the 'Attaboy' provides is own unique twist.
Square-shaped sunglasses are a timeless and chic accessory that can flatter a woman's face in many ways. The angular lines of square-shaped sunglasses can add structure to softer features and create a more defined look.
Square-shaped sunglasses complement round or oval face shapes by creating balance and symmetry. The straight lines of the frames and lenses help to elongate the face, giving the illusion of a slimmer and more angular facial structure. The broader frames of square-shaped sunglasses can also provide a more proportionate look for women with wider foreheads and cheekbones.
Our 'Wilson' square sunglasses provide a flattering shape and trendy feel. These large, square frames are the ideal fusion of vintage style and a contemporary touch. They have straight edges and an angular silhouette, accentuating delicate features. Wilsons are for those who want a big, fashionable frame in a wide fit.
Round sunglasses are another classic style that works well for women with a more feminine face shape. They are characterized by their circular lenses, which soften the angles of the face and create a more youthful appearance.
When choosing round sunglasses, look for frames that are slightly oversized to balance out your features. Avoid frames that are too small, as they can make your face look even more delicate. Look for frames that are curved or rounded, like our 'Poster Child' sunglasses. These iconic round frames are especially flattering on square or heart-shaped faces. Pick from a variety of chic colors, including ice, onyx, and pecan—each with or without deco gold lines.
Tortoise shell glasses are another great option for women's sunglasses. They're chic, durable, and come in several different shapes and colors. The 'Bellissimo' is an oversized frame that works with many different face shapes, making it the perfect option for any woman.
