(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.
