Shade your face: The sunglasses for your face shape part two

If you're already looking forward to the summer, you should give some thought to your sunglasses as well as the rest of your wardrobe.

Not only do you need a pair that fits with the SS15 trends, you also need to find sunglasses that work with your face shape.

If you're interested in circular or cat eye shades, you can find out whether they would suit you in part one of this blog, which you can find here.

Here are some other must-wear sunglass styles and the face shapes they are best suited to:

Aviators

Aviator-style shades are always a popular choice for the summer months for both men and women. This slightly retro frame style can suit most trends and add a touch of cool to the majority of ensembles.

The slightly curved frame also makes aviator sunglasses perfect for square face shapes, as they help to balance out an angular jawline. They will accentuate your eyes and add a softness to your face. 

This style also works well with oval faces, adding a bit of width to balance out the long face type. You'll also find that they show off your cheekbones, ensuring you can go without contouring while chilling by the pool this summer.

Butterfly

Butterfly sunglasses are one of the most versatile frame types and are perfect if you like big shades. They are characterised by a shape that looks similar to butterfly wings, creating a statement look with ease.

They are perfect for square, oval and heart-shaped faces as they will balance you out and accentuate all the right areas.

However, you should steer clear of them if you have a round face as they can make it seem broader, accentuating the shape in a negative way.
