Female:

SQUARE FACE SHAPE

Bold features make you a natural head-turner. Features like a prominent forehead and a strong jawline characterize your distinctive look, which makes this the perfect candidate for a few different sunglass shapes. Try curvier frames like round, oval, cat eye, butterfly, aviators, and semi-rimless to accentuate your eyes and playfully balance a striking jawline. And whether you’re dressing to impress or taking care of business, you’ll be doing it in style.

OVAL FACE SHAPE

Having an oval shaped face means you can pull off just about any look when it comes to sunglasses. Rectangle frames are often chosen for their horizontal orientation to balance an oval face’s vertical and upswept styles. They are also good for complimenting high cheekbones. So whether you’re planning to spend time poolside, or even just want some time to yourself, find the shades that fiti you best.

ROUND FACE SHAPE

Characterized by soft, contoured, feminine features, round faces generally have a width and height that are roughly equivalent. There are a lot of great opportunities to show off your style with a nice pair of shades. Whether you’re out at the beach or going for a drive, geometric shapes like horizontal frames, Wayfarers and rectangle shapes will give your face a longer, thinner look. Offset your contours and gain an elegant edge.

HEART FACE SHAPE

Having a heart shaped face typically means there’s a good chance you have a broader brow and a narrow chin. With the right pair of frames you can direct attention downward or elongate your look to even out proportions. Light-colored frames, frames with thin temples, or frames with exaggerated bottoms are most flattering for heart shapers.

Male:

SQUARE FACE SHAPE

Bold, distinguishing features like a chiseled brow and a broad jawline give you a clear, masculine look. Curves look great with square faces, so consider round shapes – like oval frames and pilots. Semi-rimless styles also help balance a prominent jaw. Whether you decide to hit the gym or the boardwalk, a pair of shades can help make your confident look even stronger.

OVAL FACE SHAPE

With a face shape that is taller than it is wide, you can pull off just about any look. So take your time browsing for the perfect pair. Whether you’re driving, exercising or hard at work, rectangle frames can balance your face. Vertical, upswept styles complement high cheekbones and shield frames mean better coverage.

ROUND FACE SHAPE

Generally, round faces possess a height and width that are relatively equivalent. To give yourself a more distinguished look, try offsetting facial contours with geometric shapes like horizontal frames, Wayfarers and rectangle shapes will give your face a longer appearance. And whether your plans include travel, relaxation or a formal event, you’ll be well-equipped with the right pair of shades.

HEART FACE SHAPE

Generally characterized by a broader brow and a narrow chin, your face shape lends naturally to prominent, striking eyes. Protect yourself with low profile frames that elongate your look, even out proportions, or direct attention downward. Light-colored frames and frames with thin temples or embellished bottoms can also help.
