For Your Eyes Only Know your face shape and find the perfect pair of sunnies to match.

Sunnies come in all forms and sizes and because there are so many options to choose from, we get that it’s often hard to find the ideal match. From classifying your face shape to pairing it with “the one,” things can get woozy and confusing. To give you guys a bit of help, we’ve rounded up a bunch of trendy sunglasses with the aid of these celebs who have square, oval, round, and heart-shaped faces rocking this season’s hottest accessory. Just remember, at the end of the day, these rules are just here to guide because the only thing that really matters is if you look and feel good about what you’re purchasing.

HEART-SHAPED FACE

People with heart-shaped faces like Kim Chiu have slightly bigger foreheads and narrow chins that resemble the shape of a heart. Balance the proportions of your face by finding pieces that have round edges or those that scoop downward like aviators.

Ed’s Note: Colored and mirrored lenses are on trend.

 

SQUARE-SHAPED FACE

Toni Gonzaga’s square face shape is usually characterized by a defined jaw line. Go for the oversized, round ones or even a cat-eye to soften the angles of your face. It’s the reverse idea for people with round faces.

Ed’s Note: We highly recommend the cat-eye if you’re on the hunt for a statement piece to get instant It girl swag.

 

ROUND-SHAPED FACE

Miranda Kerr is a perfect example of someone who has a round face shape. Opt for rectangular or horizontal pieces like a Wayfarer to give your face the angular edges it lacks.

Ed’s Note: Play around with pairs that combine different colors for the temple and rims; the transparent variety also gives off a cool and fresh vibe. 

 

OVAL-SHAPED FACE

Lucky girls like Georgina Wilson only need to worry about finding a design and color to match their personality because oval-shaped faces go well with almost everything. Depending on your preference, you can pretty much wear whatever you want.

Ed’s Note: Don’t hesitate to go for printed frames; they're perfect for summer.
