Square
Square
The square face has equal proportions and angular lines, such as a defined jaw and square chin. This face shape generally suits rounded, large frames that soften the strong lines and add definition. 

eBay recommends:  Polaroid aviator sunglasses
Price: £50
Also recommended:  Suuna Crystal Mink sunglasses
(£33) and  Beach Collection round sunglasses (£16)

Look out for: This season’s aviator frames work perfectly for a square face, while oversized retro sunglasses create a softer shape.

Heart
Heart
The heart-shaped face is characterised by a wide forehead tapering into a narrow jaw line and chin. Pick shades that draw attention downwards and add width to the lower part of the face, like butterfly shapes. Alternatively, accentuate the face shape with cat-eye shades.

eBay recommends:  Vintage cat eye sunglasses
Price: £3.69
Also recommended:  Steampunk round (£7.99) and  Beach Collection graduated sunglasses (£14)

Look out for: Rounded edges are key for heart-shapes and 1950’s cat-eye shades add drama. Avoid glasses with a thick upper rim and thick arms that come from the top of the shades.

Round
Round
Add definition to round faces with angular frames. Opt for frames that are slightly wider than the widest part of your face to create a narrowing illusion. Pale coloured lenses and frames also work well for round faces.

eBay recommends:  Flat top sunglasses
Price: £7.99
Also recommended:  Michael Kors tortoise (£105) and  Principles By Ben De Lisi cat eye (£22.50)

Look out for: Rectangular shades suit a round face, while the on-trend flat top styles will give a more defined shape. Cat eye shapes also suit round faces.

Oval
Oval faces have balanced proportions, so lucky ovals find most sunglasses suit their face. Experiment with more diverse styles, but avoid overpowering your gentle features with extra large sunglasses.

eBay recommends:  Clubmaster style sunglasses
Price: £7.99
Also recommended:  Round retro sunglasses 
(£3.99) and  Wayfarer style sunglasses (£3.65)

Look out for: Pick Wayfarer styles in bold colours for a laidback vibe. Semi-rimless clubmaster styles or shades embellished with flowers and jewels are also trending right now.

Oblong
Oblong faces are long and narrow with few angles, sometimes called rectangular faces. The oblong face suits oversized sunglasses that jut out wider around the eyes to break up the length of the face.

eBay recommends:  Round oversized sunglasses
Price: £3.99
Also recommended:  Red Herring cat eye (£16) and  Ted Baker 'Aubargne' sunglasses (£105)

Look out for: Oversized and butterfly frames are perfect for oblong face shapes.
