Square face shape – This face has a strong jaw, a wide forehead, and wide cheekbones. Your sunglasses of choice should be one that softens your features. Choose sunglasses with soft lines with rimless edges.


Round face shape – Having a round face means that the widest part of your face is across your cheekbones, allowing your forehead and jawline to be narrower. Oversized, rectangular, and angular frames will work well as it offsets the roundness.

Oval face shape – This face shape is definitely the most versatile! With this face shape you can pull off both round or square frames, however, keep proportions in mind and try not to go too big or too small for your face.

Heart face shape – Since the narrowest point of a heart shaped face is at the jawline, frames that are wider on the top than they are vs. the bottom will usually suit your face’s silhouette best
