As we know, the shape of your face determines what style of sunglasses will compliment you most.  It doesn’t hurt to match your face to someone else and try to find something close to it.

#1) Round


Offset your round features with geometric shapes. Rectangular frames will help your face look just a bit longer, while cat eyes will sharpen soft features.

Styles that work: Rectangular, sharp cat eyes

#2)  Square


You ladies with square faces, you should offset your sharper features with curvier frames. Get to know your face shape and you can work wonders with it.

Styles that work: Aviators, butterfly, cat eye

#3)  Heart


Should you have a wider brow and narrower chin, try a style with bottom-heavy frames. Shapes that run along side each other tend to go past the width of your face and complements your strong jawline. Aviators are also another great option because the silhouette contrasts your heart-shaped face.

Styles that work: Exaggerated bottoms, rectangular, aviators

#4)  Oval


You are one lucky ducky! Oval-shaped faces give the most wiggle room when choosing  shades.  You basically get to wear whatever you feel like. Go with round shapes if you’re an Almost Famous-Penny Lane type of gal or edgier shapes if you’re more Good Girl Gone Bad.

Styles that work: Circular, rectangular, oversized, round

#5)  Oblong

Oblong faces, also called rectangular, are long and narrow with few angles. An oblong face works especially well with oversized sunglasses. Also, larger wayfarer or rectangular lenses and sunglasses with thick frames add width to a long face.

Styles that work:   Oblong faces go best with bigger frames
