square - Aviator or butterfly styles of sunglasses work best for this type of face. The lenses should be oval or round in shape to complement the face.
round - The best sunglasses shapes for this type of face are rectangle, wrap, shield and square. They will help make the face look thinner and angular.
oblong - This type of facial shape has very few angles. Oversized sunglasses will work as well as shield, square, wayfarer, wrap and rectangle.
heart - Shield, rimless, aviator and butterfly style of sunglasses will look great if you have a heart-shaped face.
