The appropriate size for sunglasses and eyeglass frames should be proportionate with the face size,which means that smaller eyeglasses frames and sunglasses are the best for smaller faces while larger eyewear look better on larger faces.  The frame shape should contrast the shape of the face (rectangle frame with a round face).  These tips are not rules, but they can assist you in choosing the best frame for every face.

       Oval Face                    

Any style works for persons with an oval shape. Try with the latest looks such as wraparounds or shields. Also sqaure shaped frames with gently rounded edges and higher temples also look fabulous on an oval face.  
Suggested Frames : Any frame shape.

      Round Face

This face type should look for frames equal to or slightly wider then the broadest part of the face. To make the face appear longer and thinner,you may minimize the curves and add definition with soft, angular, rectangular styles or double brow styles. To create a longer profile try frames with higher temples. Sunglasses with brow bars also pull the eye upward, making the face appear longer.
Suggested Frames: Wider frames with angular /rectangular styles

This face shapes consists of wide or high cheekbones with a narrow forehead and chin. To soften the contour of the face we recommend oval sunglasses. Another fit that will work well with this face is a soft curves square frame. The styles should be no wider then the top of the cheekbones
Suggested Frames: Oval , Square, Rimless

  Square Face

This face shape has a B jaw line, a broad forehead and wide cheekbones. Soft curvy styles will reduce the angles of your face and give you more definition such a cat eyes. We recommend classic ovals for the the face type/shape.
Suggested Frames: Round, Cat Eyes

       Oblong Face

You may widen and shorten the face with sunglass styles that do not go beyond the widest part of the face.  This face type looks better with round or square shapes.  Frames with short horizontal and long vertical lines will also fit well.  Adding decorative or contrasting templates will make the face look wider.
Suggested Frames: Round, Square

     Triangle Face

Triangular shape faces usually have a narrow jaw and wide forehead.  The lower portion of the face can be softened by accenting the eye area.  Styles such as cat eyes should angle outward at the top corner and be wide enough to balance the jaw line.  We recommend trying metal frames with rimless
