The perfect sunglasses for your face shape

Sunny days (they’re coming, we promise!) call for killer shades, but finding the right style can be tricky – it’s all about knowing how to match them to your face shape. Round faces, for example, need sunnies with a more angular shape, while those with a square face need rounder styles. Baffled?! You won’t be: read our guide to find your perfect pair...

 

If your face shape is: ROUND

A round face is roughly the same width and length, with a curved jawline to match. Sound like you? Look for sharp lines, bold shapes and large frames – avoid round Lennon-esque sunglasses that accentuate soft lines. Vintage-inspired cat eye shades are your new best friend.

 

If your face shape is: HEART

If you have a narrow, pointed chin with a wider forehead, you're probably a heart. Choose specs that flatter – narrow wayfarers and small rounded sunglasses are perfect, while details along the top of the frame will draw attention to the upper half of your face.

 

If your face shape is: OVAL

Oh you lucky, lucky oval. A longer even face shape means you can get away with anything – so why not break the rules? Opt for on-trend shades, oversized frames and attention-grabbing shapes. Whatever the style or colour, it'll definitely suit you (promise).

 

If your face shape is: SQUARE

A classic square has a stronger jawline, with the forehead and cheeks appearing equal. Complement your face shape with rounded frames. You can go big or small, but just make sure your sunnies have curved edges. Circular frames will look fab too. Very Jackie O…
