There’s something magical about wearing the perfect pair of shades! It’s the must have piece for every day of the year, call it an evergreen piece, if you will. Some people even wear them indoors…it’s just so hard to let go!

If you’re in the market for a new pair of shades but not sure which style to go for, you’ve come to the right place! There are primarily 10 styles, cat-eye, oval, butterfly, pilot, wayfarer, rectangle, rimless, semi-rimless, wrap and round:

 The first step towards your perfect pair is to determine your face shape. There are four face shapes, heart, round, oval and square. Each face shape has it’s own beauty and complimentary styles.

With help from Sunglass Hut and Sunglass Warehouse, let’s see what’s yours!


Aaaah, I love hearts! You have a broader brow and a narrow chin. Any frames that are wider at the top than the bottom will work well. You have a range of styles to choose from that I absolutely adore, round, cat-eye, semi-rimless, pilot, rimless and butterfly.


Lovely! Your face is considered beautifully feminine and roughly have the same length and width measurement. It widens at the cheekbones and narrows towards the forehead and chin. Geometric shapes like the oval, round, rectangle, wrap and wayfarer shades enhances your feminine features.


Lucky you, you can wear almost any shape, but rectangle shapes are the most complimentary! You’ll find that the length of your face will be longer than the width of your face. Have fun exploring with practically any style, but remember not to go too big or too small.


Your features are strikingly bold. Often the easiest face shape to identify, you have a strong jawline and the width of your face from your forehead to your chin will be more or less the same. The most complimentary shades are rimless or shades with more rounded frames like the oval, round, cat-eye, pilot and butterfly.

There’s no better way to complete a look and guard your eyes from harmful sun rays or camera flashes! Warmer weather is on it’s way, best be armed with the perfect pair of shades!

Happy shopping!
