THE SHAPE: OVAL

THE SHADES: An oval-shaped face can pull off pretty much any style with its balanced proportions, but wraparound frames can be the best fit. Soft angular frames also play up the shape; just be careful that the frame size is proportional to your face.

Purple Wayfarers, $9.99 at Charming CHARLIE, 330 Palladio Parkway, Suite 2001, Folsom. 916-817-8390, charmingcharlie.com.

 

THE SHAPE: HEART

THE SHADES: To accentuate a heart-shaped face, opt for cat-eye sunglasses; aviator frames also help balance the proportions of a heart-shaped face.

Coach Kristina, $228 at Bidwell Optometry, 2545 East Bidwell Street, Suite 160, Folsom. 916-983-0896, bidwelloptometry.com.

 

THE SHAPE: ROUND

THE SHADES: Rectangular-shaped sunglasses offset the roundness; oversized sunglasses give your face the illusion of being longer and leaner.

THE SHAPE: SQUARE

THE SHADES: Round frames add curves to a square face while the rounded edges of cat-eye sunglasses soften the angular planes.
