An oval face shape is very balanced and in proportion which is why so many styles suit this face shape. With a softly-curved jawline, the cheekbones are in proportion with the forehead and jaw which means your face shape can take any style of sunglasses - lucky you!

Be creative and explore colours, shapes including aviators and different finishes as your face shape can take it so go wild!


If you have a square face, you can afford to be adventurous with your eyewear choices.

Avoid square shapes which will accentuate the squareness and instead go for styles like round, oval, fine/thin frames contrast well and consider bright frames too.

Aviator frames also work well for square and oblong face shapes.


If you have a heart shaped face select wrap sunglasses, heavy bottom sunglasses and round sunglasses including teardrop-shaped, wayfarer and cat-eye and round sunglasses, these draw attention away from the more pointy chin.

Heart-shaped faces look fantastic with cat-eye sunglasses as they accentuate the heart faced shape and draws attention away from the more pointy chin.


Diamond shaped faces have a narrow forehead which widens in the middle and

then tapers down to a pointed chin so to offset the angular shape, circular glasses work best.

Avoid square and pointed shapes as they will accentuate the chin and instead look for teashade styles as it balances out the angular point of the face.
