Update your collection with our fresh picks below:

Heart

A heart-shaped face is defined by a broad forehead and a pointy chin, almost like an inverted triangle. Because your face is most narrow at the bottom, opt for sunglasses that are a little more top-heavy to balance things out. Your go-to styles should be cat-eyed or half-rimmed designs.

Round

A round face shape is defined by a forehead and jaw that are equally wide, and cheekbones that are slightly wider. The most prominent feature are your cheeks, which you can balance out with your sunglasses. Opt for designs with sharper curves—oversized, rectangular, and angular—to sort of offset the roundness of your face and emphasize your features.

Oval

An oval-shaped face is defined by having a face slightly longer than it is wide. The widest feature are the cheekbones, with the forehead rounded and the jawline sharp. If you have this face shape, consider yourself lucky. It’s known to be the type that easily complements all sunglass shapes. That being said, you have more reason to explore! Go for different designs that are bold and daring, and have as much fun with it as you can.

Square

A square-shaped face is defined by a wide forehead, prominent cheekbones, and most notably, a strong jawline. Because your face is so angled (how we wish to have supermodel-esque chiseled features like yours), you can balance it out with your sunglasses. Choose pairs with gentle curves and smooth lines, and those with features like rimless frames to soften your features.
