When it comes to choosing your next pair of sunglasses, one could argue that fit is one of the most important determining factors. All positive qualities are lost if the frame is uncomfortable, doesn’t stay in place, or requires continuous readjusting. As a fellow small-faced sunglass shopper, I, too, know this struggle all too well.
Luckily, all these issues are resolved with a proper fit. As a leader in the industry, Ray-Ban understands the importance of a perfect fitting frame and generously offers multiple sizes for most styles. In today’s lineup of the Best Ray-Bans for Small Faces, you’ll discover 7 stylish and effortlessly cool frames that fit even the smallest of faces.
Best Ray-Bans for Small Faces
Inspired by the Original Wayfarer, the New Wayfarer delivers all the necessary modifications to be a small face-friendly style. Featuring a smaller and shallower square lens, the New Wayfarer is a gentler interpretation of this iconic design. It also features a slightly thinner nylon frame, making it less overwhelming than its classic counterpart.
Similar to the New Wayfarer, the RB2185 Wayfarer II embraces its iconic roots - with a twist. Featuring a round lens, and slightly flared frame front, the Wayfarer II is an extremely flattering frame on a variety of face shapes. This uplift also creates visual interest and gives a lighter appearance than the Original.
If you love the Aviator style but find the dramatic teardrop lens somewhat overwhelming, the RB3362 Cockpit is the perfect compromise. You’ll still achieve impeccable Aviator style with the minimalist metal frame, elegant double bridge, and pilot-shaped lenses - without the discomfort of a deep lens. The Cockpit has a teardrop lens height of 42.6 mm, which is about 5 mm less than the Original Aviator.
A few notable fit features on the Cockpit and the following metal frames:
- Adjustable nose pads to perfect the fit on your nose bridge
- Covered temple tips to secure a comfortable fit
Another Aviator style in today’s lineup is the RB3136 Caravan. If you prefer a square lens to teardrop, the Caravan offers its own geometric take while maintaining all the other iconic Aviator details. This is also a great option for those with high cheekbones. The shallower lens and flat bottom help prevent the lens from resting on your cheeks. So smile away and your sunglasses will stay perfectly in place!
47 & 50 Eyesize
Staying with our metal frames, the RB3447 Round Metal is an impressive contender for one of the best Ray-Bans for small faces. Inspired by the 60s', its distinctive round shape has been a favorite for generations. This iconic shape and minimalist design make for an elegant frame that provides serious stylistic impact while keeping all attention on you.
Taking inspiration from the Round Metal, the RB3548N Hexagonal is the ultimate conversation starter. Small, yet mighty, its unique shape warrants attention and is sure to turn heads. Even better yet, this flattering frame highlights even the most delicate features.
Rounding out today’s best Ray-Bans for small faces is the RB3016 Clubmaster. This iconic sunglass provides retro style with a contemporary twist. We love this style for small faces because of the unique mixed composition. Made from lightweight acetate and durable metal, the juxtaposition of the two lightens the overall look while delivering serious style.
