Ever wonder which sunglasses shape is perfect for your face? Never fear; you’re not alone. Our hunt for the perfect pair is always trifold; we look for style, fit and protection from the sun. But with so many different styles and shades, it may be hard to find sunglasses that fit your face–and style–the best. Here it is: What Fits Yo’ Face 101

1.Oval and round frames or butterfly glasses fit angular faces with strong jaw lines, broad foreheads, and square chins.

2.If you have an oval face, you’re in luck because many shapes will fit your face frame.

3. An oblong face, which is a narrow shape that is longer than it is wide, works best with tall frames or broad glasses with a temple that creates width.

4. Round faces require angular and geometric frames while heart shaped faces match well with narrow, round frames that soften your forehead.

Whatever face shape you have, there is a style that is just right for you. The next step in finding your perfect pair is choosing from a brand that strikes your fancy. Ray Bans are stylish, classy, and always in style. From original wayfarers to aviators, Ray Bans are the best selling eyewear brand in the world. However, they can be a bit pricey. If you’re running low on dough, I suggest getting a pair from a clothing store you already frequent. I bought my aviators at Urban Outfitters for about $15 bucks. They may not be name brand, but they definitely give me the style + protection combo I look for in a kickasss pair of shades.
