An oval face is considered by many to be the ideal face shape because it is very well-proportioned. It is also the easiest face shape to match with sunglasses because almost any kind of frame would complement it. It is the face that comes with high cheekbones, a curving jawline and a narrow forehead and chin.

If you have an oval shape, you can rock just about any kind of sunglasses. Since your face is already round, you can add some angles by going for sunglasses with square or rectangular frames. Aviator sunglasses frames are also great if your face is on the long side because these frames will create balance by making your face look shorter.

As for the don'ts, you want to avoid sunglasses whose frames are too small as they can make your face appear even longer. Similarly, you want to stay away from very large frames that would overwhelm your face. And of course, you should never sacrifice comfort for style so make sure you pick sunglasses that are easy to wear even for extended periods.

Round Sunglasses

Sunglasses with a round frame may either make a statement or complement your style, depending on the exact model you select. If you want to stand out from the crowd, try a pair of large round spectacles in a bright hue.

As early as the 1920s, round glasses were the most common frame shape. In the second half of the 20th century, other shapes, such as the top-heavy brow lines, were popular among the general public as well. In spite of the competition from various types, round frame glasses remain the most elegant and distinctive. Just like the round sunglasses Ekat in Lensmart:
