You do your body shape research before slipping into a new summer swimsuit, but do you consider your face shape before investing in some new sun-blocking shades? The right pair of sunglasses can draw major attention to your assets while lending balance to more extreme features.

Check out our suggestions below:

If your face is square: Rounded frames will add some softness to your angular features. Tom Ford’s Valesca shades ($280) have additional detail at the brow, drawing eyes upward and balancing out a strong jawline.

If your face is round: Choose wide rectangular or square frames to downplay fullness and make your face appear thinner. Oliver Peoples’ Apollonia shades ($325) create the illusion of angles.

If your face is heart-shaped: Gals with wider foreheads do best with shades with thin frames, like Dana Buchman Aviators from Kohl’s ($16).

If your face is oblong: Long and lean faces can handle oversized frames—think big and bold. Try drawing attention upward by picking glasses with eye-catching stems, like Kate Spade’s Priscilla Print shades ($148).

Be sure to shop our Celeb Sunglasses Guide for styles the stars can’t get enough of this summer.
