Get the right summer shades for your face shape


The sun is finally out, and the perfect pair of summer shades is a must!

You can rock any style of sunnies (aviator, oversize, wayfarer, cat-eye) so long as you pick a pair with the right ones for your face shape.

Heart Shaped Face

A heart-shaped face, like Hayden Panettiere’s, is characterised by a wide forehead, narrower jaw line, high cheekbones, and a narrow chin.

Sunnies that will suit you: Go for cat-eye shaped sunglasses – they’ll accentuate your face shape the best. You also want shades that add width to the lower part of your face, so bigger styles work well but avoid anything that sits high and wide.


Square Shaped Face


A square-shaped face, like Lea Michele’s, is usually proportional in length and width. It’s characterised by a defined jaw, square chin and a broad forehead.
Sunnies that will suit you: Try oversized round glasses—they’ll highlight your best features.


A Round Shaped Face


A round face. like Kirsten Dunst’s, has an equal width and length and is characterised by soft curves with few angles.
Sunnies that will suit you: Those with rounder faces should go for angular frames, which help add definition. Look for more horizontal styles to sharpen the face and add extra length with upswept frames.


Oval shaped faces

An oval-shaped face, like Zoe Saldana’s, is the easiest one to find shades for. It’s characterised by balanced proportions, a narrow forehead and jaw line, a chin that is slightly narrower than the forehead and typically high cheekbones.
Sunnies that will suit you: Any style, lucky you!
