Next to a great pair of shoes and a fabulous bag, sunglasses are the
ultimate fashion accessory. Not only do they protect your eyes from harmful UV rays,
but they can put the finishing touches on any outfit. But with so many
colors, shapes and sizes to choose from, how is a gal to know how to
pick the right shades?

With spring rapidly approaching, it’s
time to figure out which frames will best suit your face shape. So sit
back, relax and reflect on these sunglass suggestions from Pür Minerals.

Best Sunglasses for Your Face Shape

Oval Face
oval face is typically slightly longer than it is wide, with a rounded
hairline. Almost any style of frames will work with your well-balanced
features. Experiment with the latest styles and try everything from
aviators to wrap-arounds to see what best suits your personal style.

Round Face
round face needs a style that adds a little length. Instead of round
styles (which will only make your face appear rounder), opt for
contrasting straight or angular frames. Wide frames will also help make
your face appear longer and thinner.

Square Face
best sunglasses for a square chin and face are a pair that softens your
strong, angular jawline. Round or curvy or styles will help soften your
square features and minimize the jaw. Cat eye frames can also be a fun,
funky alternative to classic oval styles.

Oblong Face
goal is to shorten and widen the face. Offset your long, straight
cheekbones with a round frame. Frames embellished with crystals and
other decorations are also a great way to add width to the face and
detract from your jawline.
