Characteristics:

Round faces are soft with full cheeks. The length and the width of the face are roughly equal to one another.

Best Fit:

Straight angular and square frames can sharpen features to make your face appear thinner. Deep, bold colors add definition and minimize fullness.

Sunglasses for Square Faces

Characteristics:

Square-shaped faces have a strong jawline. The width of the cheekbone is typically the same width of the forehead.

Best Fit:

Round frames and cat-eye styles are especially flattering for this face shape. Aviators also work well, but be sure to wear small ones for delicate features and large ones for stronger features.

Sunglasses for Heart Faces
