Hi all!
Any recommendations for small fitting sunglasses? I feel like today's huge sunglass looks are overwhelming but am having trouble finding a more proportional fit that's still trendy.
Thanks!!

Oliver Peoples has some great small fitting sunglasses, but they can be on the pricey side. I believe they offer both "European" and "Asian" fit in small frames.

Kate Spade! My first pair of designer sunglasses was Kate Spade!

I now have a pair of Oliver Peoples that I love. A lot of OP's are a bit big, but I was lucky to find a very knowledgeable sales associate who pulled the perfect pair for me.

These are the exact ones I have:

Search kid's designer sunglasses on ebay. You can't tell that they are kids glasses most of the time and they come cheaper then specially made adult glasses. I gave up with normal sized sunglasses years ago. I have a pair of (knock-off) Dolce & Gabbana (sp) kids sunglasses and I love them.

You can tell that I don't really own designer anything from my supposed spelling error lol

I second the vote for Kate Spade! I got a pair at the outlet mall, and they have a lot of styles that work great on smaller faces.
I feel your pain with trying to find glasses that fit. When I went to the eye doctor to pick out my regular glasses, I had to get them from the children's section because all the adult glasses were way too big!

I have a pair of Juicy Couture sunglasses. They fit pretty well. But the ones that fit the best are the smaller version of the classic Ray Bans.

I have had a little luck with Kate Spade but if you want a slightly less expensive option Ray Ban has also seemed to work pretty well. They sell them in Optical at Target so they might be cheaper there than at the sunglasses shops.

I have the same problem too! Thanks for posting this.

I have a small face that is a bit sqaurish but then again not really. What shape do you think would match me?

Recently I purchased at sunglass hut the product glasses made just for them. They are small enough that they stay on my face. They are also polarized which I require.
