Sunglasses That Complement Your Features

It's always a good idea to try on a variety of sunglasses until you find a style that works best for you. Rule of thumb: When shopping for the perfect shades, go for frames that don't mirror the shape of your face. We put together a quick guide with our top picks for the four most common face shapes: oval, heart, round and square.

1. Sunglasses - Round 1

ROUND:
Celebs like Cameron Diaz look best in wide-shaped glasses. Angular frames narrow round faces.

2. Sunglasses - Round 2

HEART:
It’s all about balance and proportion when choosing the right shades. Folks with heart shapes, like Jennifer Lopez, should look for square glasses.
