  • Face Shape – It's best to select frames that contrast facial shapes. It's also recommended to make sure that a frame's size is in portion to one's face. Highlighted below are several facial shapes:

    • Triangle – Cat-eye sunglasses and colorful frames pair well with this facial shape.
    • Square – Round, oval, soft edge styles, cat-eye and thin, delicate frames look spectacular with square facial shapes.
    • Oblong – Select frames that are as wide or even slightly wider than the widest part of the face.
    • Inverted Triangle – Opt for light colors and materials that are rimless.
    • Oval – This is the most versatile facial shape, but looks especially sharp with wrap-around or square styles.
    • Round – Thick, rectangular or square frames look stunning.
  • Hair Color and Skin Tone – Coloring is an important part in selecting sunglasses. The frame's color should compliment the skin's tone. There are two types of skin tones:
    • Cool – Cool tones typically have blue or pink undertones. Cool hair tones include blonde, white, blue-black and light brown. People with cool tones should consider selecting sunglasses that are rosy brown, black, magenta, plum, darker tortoise or magenta.
    • Warm – Warm skin tones are characterized with a yellow undertone. Warm hair colors are flat black, golden blonde, red and brown-gold. Warm skin tones look good in khaki, camel, gold, peach, bright red, off-white or copper.
