What kind of sunglasses will you absolutely stun in? Well, it all depends on the shape of your visage and finding a proportional style of sunnies. (That pair of tiny sunglasses looks cute online, but will it actually suit your face shape? Maybe not!) And it'll take some trial and error to figure out what sunglasses style is best for your face. To assist you on your sunglasses journey, start by drawing inspiration from celebrities with similar facial structures, below. (I already took this little test and I'm pleased to report that my face most closely resembles Emma Stone's.) Now, match your shape to one of theirs and then shop the sunglasses that fall into that category. If you're still unsatisfied with the offerings, browse the sunglasses brands to know for 2020. And to continue to hunt for your favorite sunnies, now that you know what fits, from these selections.
Rounder faces like Emma's tend to be widest across the cheekbones and narrower along the forehead and jawline. Rectangular and angular frames are always a safe bet, and the wide cheekbones can pull off oversized frames, too.
With her square shape, Jolie's visage looks best paired with rounded frames that soften her angular features.
Oval faces can pull off any frame style. JLaw has an oval face, giving her plenty of options when it comes to frame shape, from borrowed-from-the-boys silhouettes to retro rounded styles.
Kerry Washington has a heart-shaped face, where her brow is broader at the top and her chin is more pointed at the bottom. This means angles of all kinds and wide, upturned frames are her friends. Go with light-colored styles or frames with exaggerated bottoms.
