In the 1950’s, American optical designer, Raymond Stegeman, created the wayfarer sunglass style and they have been a staple ever since. Wayfarer sunglasses are frames that feature an oval shape with a square box lens design. Every major brand on the market has a collection of Wayfarer-styled sunglasses because the design complements nearly every face shape and its functionality is out of this world. Essentially, you can find a wayfarer frame for sports, lifestyle, or any other activity that require sunglasses.
The simple answer is almost any face shape will work with a wayfarer frame. If you are a round faced individual, then your best option would be a straight square or angular wayfarer. This creates a slim effect that makes your face seem longer. Now if you are a square faced individual, then a slightly curved square wayfarer is the best choice for you. Heart shaped faces are built for the classic original wayfarer, while a diamond face will work best in a classic wayfarer with a stylish curve. If you are unsure of your face shape and need help deciding, please feel free to call one of our certified opticians by phone or email.
