    Round
    Rounder faces are geometric and symmetrical. Try looking for rectangular shapes to work with that geometry. Classic wayfarer-style frames are a great pick for people with round faces, or smaller square shaped frames. The frames can also help make your face look longer.

    Heart
    With higher cheekbones and a narrower chin, heart shaped faces work well with wider frames. Glasses with narrower arms (they’re technically called “temples”) would work nicely with the shape of your face. 


    Oval 
    With an oval shaped face, you’re in luck. You can pick from a range of fun frame shapes— wide, bold, etc. Even larger rounder frames work great. Don’t be worried about covering too much of your face.

    Square
    Soften and round out angles with rounded, half-rim frames. Clubmaster shapes work perfect for square face shapes. 

    Hopefully this helps you find the perfect pair of sunglasses for you! Keep in mind, this is just a loose guide. Wear what makes you feel good!
