As a petite person with a narrow face, sunglasses are accessories that have always frustrated me. Trying to find the small sunglasses needle in a haystack of oversized frames means my sunnies collection is sparse and unexciting. As a born and raised Southern California girl (we love our sunnies), this is simply unacceptable. So when I stumbled upon a whole page dedicated to small-sized frames on the Nordstrom website, I was awestruck & excited to share!
Small Sunglasses Picks:
My favorites from the curated small sunglasses collection include the Illesteva “Leonard” which clocks in at a mere 47mm, and comes in a variety of colors in both regular lenses, and mirrored lenses. The sunglasses pictured in this post are the “tortoise / blue” mirrored option. More fun options are below:
How To Measure Sunglasses:
The Nordstrom page lists small sunglasses as those with a lens width of 49mm and below, with more in depth measurements on each individual product page. In case you’re curious, here’s what those other measurements mean when shopping for sunglasses:
To add to the list of small sunglasses, I’ve tried options from Kate Spade (great for more feminine and retro styles), and Oliver Peoples (FYI: many Oliver Peoples styles are made to better fit faces with shallow or lower nose bridges, a common consideration for many customers of Asian decent…my husband who is Thai with a shallow nose bridge loves this brand!) in the past and had good luck. I’d love to hear what other brands have worked for you!
