Sunglasses for YOUR face shape

Every girl loves a great pair of sunglasses but do you know how to properly shop for the shape of your face?

Oversized sunglasses (pictured, Target $16.99), made popular by Paris Hilton, have been the trend for the past two years. They complement women who have an oval shaped face or a larger nose.

On the other hand, smaller glassses with a straight frame (think square) are a great match for those with a round shaped face.

Aviator sunglasses (or those with thin rims) can be worn by those with a triangular shaped face (larger forhead and narrow chin).

If you have a long narrow (oblong) face, make sure your eyewear frames cover the center of your face as much as possible.

No matter what your face shape, remember to always protect your eyes by purchasing shades that offer UV protection.

My mother-in-law just ordered me some sunglass for my birthday. I can't wait until they get here.

I'm so bad, I live in FL and never wear sunglasses.

I could not live without my shades...even in the Winter!

My face is long and narrow and I find the oversized glasses work best for me.

Oversized glasses are the best! My husband commonly refers to them as "rehab" glasses though :) I think that could also be attributed to Paris Hilton!
