Spring is here, and that means sunny days, beautiful weather and fun fashion! One of the best accessories for spring is a great pair of shades. It’s important that your shades fit your face shape, or you could run the risk of missing out on the potential of the sunglasses itself! We came across an article from Elle that helps you find the best shades for your face shape. The beauty of this article is that they use celebrities as examples! Check out the article below.

Opposite of gals with round faces, you should offset your sharper features with curvier frames. Olivia Wilde is a great example of a woman who knows her face shape, wearing modern cat eyes with rounded edges that curve downward.

If you have a broad brow and narrow chin similar to Kylie Jenner, try a style with bottom-heavy frames. Shapes that are parallel and extend past the width of your face complement your strong jawline. Aviators are also another great option as the silhouette contrasts your heart-shaped face.
Styles that work: Exaggerated bottoms, rectangular, aviators

Lucky you! Oval-shaped faces have the most wiggle room when choosing their eyewear. Like Rihanna, you basically get to wear whatever you want. Go with round shapes if you’re an Almost Famous-Penny Lane type of gal or edgier shapes if you’re more Good Girl Gone Bad.
Styles that work: Circular, rectangular, oversized, round
