Whether you’re into the drama of an oversize shape, love the nostalgia of micro-mini frames, or can’t quit the classics (cat eyes and aviators), there will always be certain sunglasses that flatter your face shape best.

“Triangular shaped faces need frames that can help broaden their delicate jawline and direct attention downward to elongate features,” says Anna Longoni, North Americas Head of Sun Assortment for Sunglass Hut. If you have a broad brow and a narrow chin similar to Mindy Kaling, try a style with bottom-heavy frames. Shapes that are parallel and extend past the width of your face will complement your strong jawline. Aviators are another great option as the sloping silhouette contrasts your v-shaped chin.Flat Top SunglassesCELINECelinenordstrom.com$460.00SHOP NOW

“Colors such as tortoise and neutral tones help soften and subtly frame the face, while lenses with a warm amber tint add a cool and retro look,” says Walter. Soften your features with curvy frames, such as an oval or rectangular pair with rounded edges. Modern cat eyes that curve downward will also balance your angles. If you want to get crazy, Miu Miu’s butterfly-shaped frame is your statement accessory for the season.FOR SQUARE-SHAPED FACESOctaviaCAROLINA LEMKECarolina Lemkecarolinalemke.com$39.99SHOP NOW

Rectangular sunglasses balance your round features and elongate your face, bringing attention upward. Walter suggests a style with a brow bar, which “is perfect for a round face as it gives the wearer a fun defined shape.”Another solid option is a pair of classic cat eye with sweeping angles. Try not to go too oversized—large frames will overpower your perfect circle.FOR ROUND-SHAPED FACESPaula SunglassesLOEWELoeweloewe.com$360.00SHOP NOW

Oval-shaped faces have the second-to-most wiggle room when choosing their eyewear. Like Lupita Nyong’o, you basically get to wear whatever you want. However, we recommend skipping perfect circle frames which won’t elongate your face shape.FOR OVAL-SHAPED FACESMarshal SunglassesRAY BANRay-Bansunglasshut.com$165.00SHOP NOW
