Sunglasses for oval faces

If you have an oval shaped face, then congratulations, you can pull off pretty much any style of sunglasses. Oval faces generally have a more narrow forehead and chin and cheekbones to die for. If you opt for square sunglasses, your face shape will appear more angular and contoured, but if you go for round sunglasses your features will appear softened. Maybe stay away from micro glasses though, they may make your face look longer than it actually is.

Sunglasses for round faces

People with round faces usually have a lightly defined chin and cheekbones, with your forehead and cheeks being of similar width. If that sounds familiar, then opt for square or rectangular sunglasses. They will make your face appear sharper and contoured. Choose larger frames rather than small round ones.

The typical features of a heart shaped face are: wide forehead and cheeks, with a cute little narrow chin. If we have just described you, then choose rounded frames. You wanna go for glasses that create balance between the brows and your chin, without making your forehead seem bigger than it is.

If your forehead, cheeks and jaw are approximately the same width, then you probably fall under the category of having a square-shaped face. Rounded sunglasses are perfect for softening your features, but if you wanna shaw off that killer jawline, choose angular or square shapes.
