“Why the long face?” is an oft heard phrase around my husband’s family, as the oblong face shape is a popular genetic trait in our group. With my own oval shape, I fit right in. But aside from being fodder for inside family jokes, your face shape determines which sunglasses you should be looking for as you shop for your next pair.

It may not feel like it, but sunny days are right around the corner. Follow the guide below to find the right shades for you.

The Square Face:

Frames to Try – Oval and round frames, glasses with temples that are center set or that connect at the top of the frame, butterfly shaped glasses

Emilio Pucci Acetate D-framed Sunglasses, the outnet

House of Harlow Nicole glasses, revolveclothing

Tom Ford Butterfly frame, net-a-porter

The Round Face:

Frames to try – Angular and geometric frames that sharpen facial features, r
ectangular and horizontal styles make faces appear longer and thinner, upswept frames that draw attention to top of face, 

glasses with temples that connect at the top of the frame add length

KBL Wild Promises, kirnazabete

Tortoise Plastic, Nine West

The Oval/Oblong Face:

Frames to try – Most frames work with oval faces. Square, rectangular shapes which add angles to soft curves

Crystal studded frames, bebe

Marc by Marc Jacobs Thin Square Plastic, bergdorf goodman

The Heart Shaped Face:

Frames to try – Bottom-heavy frames that add width to lower face, styles with low-set temples to draw attention downward, narrow, round frames that soften the forehead
