A great pair of sunglasses can instantly elevate your look, even if you’re just wearing jeans and a t-shirt. The trick, of course, is knowing what the right pair is for you. When looking for shades, you should remember two things:
- You want to find a pair that compliments your face shape. The general rule is that the shape of your sunglasses should be opposite of your face shape.
- Invest in ONE pair with a classic shape so that you can wear them for many years.
Your first step to selecting a great pair of sunglasses is to determine your face shape. —And this is an easy thing to do!

It is oval, square, heart, or round? Once you have determined the shape of your face, it’s now easy to select a pair that will flatter your face. You now have the ability to wear your sunglasses in confidence, ready to strut your stuff for the world.
