However, if you are more on the petite side or have a petite face, finding sunglasses that are cute and don’t overwhelm your small face can be a struggle.

I love aviators, you’ll love the classic shape and the way they go with everything you want to wear from gorgeous dresses to your best winter jacket. However, having such a small face makes it extremely difficult to find them in a style that won’t swallow your entire face. Anyone else has this problem where they just don’t look right? Well, don’t fret cause you’ll love these perfect pairs that are oh so flattering!
God bless Ray-Ban for finally realizing that us people with small faces want to enjoy aviators as well! The now have aviators in a smaller size! Hallelujah! Still oversized they are the perfect fit so as not to overwhelm the face, and yes I’m fully in love with them! I have a full-blown addiction to these as they are my go-to sunglasses, I wear them just about every day!
However, I don’t want to always worry about wearing my expensive sunglasses out and about especially to the beach!

Wayfarers, when bought in the right size, is one of the most flattering shapes especially for those who have smaller faces. They compliment so many face shapes and can be done in some stylish color combos from reflective lenses to straight up classics like these Ray Ban ones.
Even if you love your aviators, having options is never a bad thing. You’ll love stepping outside the box and rocking a classic pair of wayfarer sunnies on your next beach vacation or running around town. Surprisingly one of the best pairs ever is this super stylish pair from JCPenny! They are nice a sturdy, and feel far more luxury than they are!
