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.
