1. If You Have a Round Face…Try Cat-Eye Sunglasses

If you have a round face (à la Emma Stone), cat-eye sunglasses are the way to go. Why? The tapered edges lift the sides of your face to show off those beautiful cheekbones and give you a more snatched look.

2. If You Have a Heart-Shaped Face…Try Round Sunglasses

Heart-shaped faces like Kerry Washington’s have such stunning bone structure. You don’t want to distract from your angles, making round sunnies an excellent option. Even better, try a wire frame instead of plastic for a sleeker look.

3. If You Have a Diamond-Shaped Face…Try Square Sunglasses

Diamond-shaped ladies know how to work their sharp jawlines. (Miss JLo certainly does.) Adding some structure to the upper part of the face with square shades will complement a defined jaw. Also keep in mind that if you have a larger forehead, larger sunnies are the way to go; if you have a smaller one, try the tiny sunglass trend—we think you’ll like it.

4. If You Have an Oval Face…Try Aviators

This consistently trendy style gives a little edge to the oval faces out there. If your face shape is similar to the eternally gorgeous Halle Berry, aviators are a fab way to bring some extra dimension to the face.
