As exciting as buying a new pair of sunglasses may be, it can be just as daunting finding the right sunglasses that suit your face shape. Just like getting your hair cut, there are a few rules to abide by. With different face shapes, certain hairstyles will certainly look better than others. This certainly holds true for sunglasses as well. Keep reading to learn how you can find the right sunglasses for your face shape!

Oval faces
If you have an oval face shape, you’re in luck. Most frames will look good on you. Square shaped sunglasses look particularly fetching, but you can definitely pull off most styles!

Square faces
For square face shapes, try to soften straight angles and the strong jawline by opting for rounder and oval sunglasses. Frames that have rounded edges are especially great for square shape faces.

Heart-shaped faces
Heart-shaped faces tend to be broad at the forehead and cheeks, and narrower at the chin. For this face shape, go for styles that downplay the bottom half of the face (for instance, aviators are a great option).

Oblong faces
Oblong faces are longer than they are wide, so look for sunglasses that provide more horizontal width. Broader sunglasses are especially flattering, but stay away from glasses with short width.

Round faces
Round faces tend to have fewer angles and are generally characterized by fuller cheeks and rounded chins. Try selecting sunglass shapes that will sharpen your features. For instance, rectangular and square frames are perfect for this face shape.
