Struggling to find a pair of sunglasses to suit you? If you have an oval-shaped face, look no further than these styles that will complement your features.
Summer is just around the corner, so our eyes are firmly on SS21 fashion – as we’re sure yours are too. When it comes to shades, it can be tricky to know which styles work best for your face shape.
Oval face shapes are exactly how they sound, with high cheekbones and a forehead slightly wider than the jaw.
If that’s you, count yourself lucky when it comes to buying sunnies; most styles will suit you.
You can go for aviator, square, cat-eye, geometric and oversized sunglasses as well as many more — as long as they’re well-fitted and frame the widest part of your face.
We’ve done the hard work for you and found 9 pairs that will do a great job of flattering your features from QUAY, ASOS, Poppy Lissiman, Le Specs and more.
