sunglasses for narrow face?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey all...I hope this is the right place to put this topic...but I just broke my crappy sunglasses. I'm thinking of buying some designer ones but my face is long and narrow, so a lot of frames are too wide for me. Anyone with that issue find some good ones? I like large frames, they just can't be super-wide. Thanks for any advice!

I have a long narrow face and I found that round frames are pretty much the only ones that look good on me. I usually go for larger frames or aviators. Here are some pictures of my favorites. I do have others that are both Coach if you want to see pictures of those.

Miu Miu Aviators SMU53G

I've had luck with Kate Spade sunglasses. I suggest going to the mall and trying on whatever tickles your fancy to see what fits your face.

Thanks! They both look really good on you! I'm not sure I can pull off frames that large...I am thinking of these...I'm going to go see if they have them at my local Coach store or outlet...

Coach Official Site - COACH KERI SUNGLASSES

Opinions?

Oh really?! Wow, that's exactly what I don't want!! I think maybe I'll hit up some stores after work today, I work right by an outlet center.

So, I went to Sunglass Hut and the girl said she recommends these to girls with small faces:

The SunglassHut.com Sunglasses - Find the Perfect Designer and Performance Sunglasses

They sort of wrap around, so they don't stick off the sides of my face...so I bought them. Yey!

I also loved these in black, and am starting to check Ebay for a pair under retail...they look huge but they were actually really good on my thin face:

Versace model VE4132B

Thanks for all the help!
