The best new sunglasses for your face shape

When it comes to sunglasses, there's no such thing as one size fits all. Before you set your sights on new frames, consider which sunnies will work best for your face shape.

Round
Juxtapose a round face with rectangular frames; sharp angles add structure to soft, curving lines.
Chelsea sunglasses, $159, toms.ca.
Oval
Oval shapes work with myriad silhouettes, but if your face runs long, bring balance with oversize or aviator sunnies.
Jill sunglasses, $128, jcrew.com.
Heart
Cat-eye sunglasses are best for heart-shaped visages (a wide forehead with a narrow chin). Skip oversize styles to keep the look classic and pretty.
Valentino Blonde Havana sunglasses, $259, clearly.ca.
Square
If you have a square face or a strong jawline, opt for round frames in a light or pastel hue: Pale palettes will help soften your angles.
Sunglasses, $13, hm.com/ca.
