The Right Ray-Bans for Your Face Shape

Finding the right sunglasses for your face shape is no easy task. With so many different styles of frames, it can be daunting shopping for a pair of designer sunglasses online – however, The Hut is here to help.

Ray-Bans are one of the most iconic sunglasses brands around: recognised globally, their collection includes Wayfarers, Aviators and Clubmasters – but which pair is right for you?


Your Face Is | Roughly the same in width as it is in height; round faces have no sharply-defined jawlines or pointed chins, with a soft, feminine look to them.

Celebrity Face Shape Twin | Jennifer Lawrence, Cameron Diaz, Emma Stone and Ginnifer Goodwin all have round faces.

Your Ray-Bans Are | The Ray-Ban Wayfarer; perfect for elongating round faces, the geometric shape of the frames adds angles and lines to the softness of your shape.



Your Face Is | Hailed as the perfect face shape, oval faces are slightly narrower than they are wide, with no jutting-out cheekbones or jawlines – just beautiful subtle contours.

Celebrity Face Shape Twin | Eva Mendes, Beyonce, Gisele and Jessica Alba are a few of the lucky ladies blessed with an oval face shape.

Your Ray-Bans Are | Any and all – those with an oval face can get away with almost every pair of sunglasses, so play around with colours, finishes and sizes when choosing your Ray-Bans.


Your Face Is | With an angular bone structure, a square face is extremely striking: think a wider jawline – the same width as the hairline, too.

Celebrity Face Shape Twin | Keira Knightley, Olivia Wilde and Rachel McAdams all rock a defined jawline and square face shape.

Your Ray-Bans Are | Ray-Bans with a curved shape are ideal for those with a square face – frames with rounder lenses, such as Aviators, do a great job of balancing out jawlines and will certainly get heads turning.


Your Face Is | Wider across the cheeks with a narrower chin, a heart shaped face traditionally has a widow’s peak hairline and defined jawline.

Celebrity Face Shape Twin | Kourtney Kardashian, Reese Witherspoon, Miranda Kerr and Madonna are your heart-shaped-face-sisters.

Your Ray-Bans Are | Choose light-coloured lenses with thin frames – think pale Aviators – or those which are semi-rimless, like the Clubmaster design.
