With the sun making a rare prolonged appearance at the moment, it's time to sort out a decent pair of sunnies!

However, picking a pair of sunglasses that suit you isn’t quite as easy as you might expect. There are frames that really work for your face shape and there are frames that…well, they just look shit!

So how do you avoid a massive fashion faux pas and pick sunglasses that look peng? Firstly, you’ll need to figure out what shaped face you have.....

A face is just a face isn't it? Well, no! You can have a heart, round, oval or square shaped face! Who knew?

If you're unsure of your shape, try asking a friend. You'll always have one that is honest enough to tell you straight!

Once you’ve argued with your friend and finally agreed on your actual face shape, you can start to search for sunnies that will complement your face. Don't worry - we've made a guide to help you out!


Heart Face

With a heart face, your jawline will be the narrowest part of your face. You will tend to have a pointy or narrow chin and your brow and forehead will be the widest part of your face.

Glasses that are wider on top than the bottom tend to suit this style of face best. Try Retro Square, Cat Eye or Sport style glasses if you have a heart face.


Round Face

A round face is widest across the cheekbones with both the forehead and jawline being slightly narrower.

Angular frames tend to do the trick with offsetting the roundness of a face. Try Oversized, Cat Eye or Retro Square glasses in this instance.


Oval Face

The oval face is longer than it is wide and if you have one, you're onto a winner! It is the most versatile face shape and suits both round and square frames. Lucky you!

Proportion is key here. Try not to go too big or too small. Best styles for oval faces are Aviator, Retro Square or Oversized.


Square Face

A square face has a strong jaw with a wide forehead and cheeks.

Sunnies with soft lines or rimless edges really help soften these features. Aviator, Round or Shield styles of sunglasses are perfect for a square face.
