Megan M. writes, "I have a problem finding sunglasses that fit my face. I have a very narrow face and so the typical larger style just makes me look like a bug! In fact when I got prescription sunglasses most of the ones that didn't look ridiculous were from the kids section. If you could find me some that would fit my face and not cost a million dollars I would be grateful." We feel your pain! Sunglasses are getting so big, we'll soon be wearing full-face versions! We've picked out a few below: let us know how we did!
1 - Fossil "Savannah" Rimless Sunglasses ($35) - A little rhinestone detailing & classic tortoiseshell frame, plus smaller squared-off lenses = flattering.
2 - A.B.S. by Allen Schwartz Vented Metal Sunglasses ($45) - Not too pricey, and the modified gradient lens frame isn't too big. The bright color will help visually broaden the face.
3 - Ray-Ban RB2156 New Clubmaster Sunglasses ($139-145) - There's a reason the Clubmaster design has been around for decades: it's simple, strong, and classic.
4 - Tory Burch TY6006 ($145) - These aviators aren't of the giant bug-eyed variety; rather, they're just the right size. If you pick the blue frame with blue lens shown, the lens has a holographic pattern of the TB 4-T logo.
5 - CK Calvin Klein Grommeted Small Square Sunglasses ($72) - The grommet detail at the temple will help to visually widen your face a little bit.
6 - Lucky Brand Interlude Sunglasses ($69) - Classic retro shape, sized down for narrower faces. Love the engraving on the sides of the frames!
