Like a car, a pair of sunglasses is an expression of your personality. They can create a look or stunt your swagger. Who would Tego Calderon, Jay-Z or Snoop Dogg be without their signature shades? However, you may not know what works best for you. Check out our advice on picking the perfect pair by way of this season’s hottest frames.
For Round Faces
“Slightly angular frames narrow a round face,” says Eden Wexler, celebrity sunglass stylist. Aviators with a straight-line top work well for this type of face because they add dimension and angles. “Metal frames with adjustable nose pads also keep lenses from resting on fuller cheeks to give a slimmer look.”
For Heart-shaped Faces
If you have a heart-shaped face, look for frames that have a rounded bottom and low temples to add fullness to your narrow chin. Traditional teardrop aviators, as well as frames with rounded tops and squared-off bottoms are flattering to this silhouette.
