I have seen this idea in a lot of places, but the folks from Kohl’s sent me some really cute and inexpensive choices for sunglasses shapes that flatter your face for $17 and up. Here they are:
If your face is round: Create contrast, wear square or rectangular frames that are slightly wider than the broadest part of your face. These floral shades at left are from L.C. Lauren Conrad at Kohl’s for $18 — on sale.
If your face is square: Choose sunglasses with a higher top than at the bridge with oval or round frames that soften facial features. These babies at left are only $11 on sale at Kohl’s.
If your face is long: Choose angular and squared lenses. Try on those bad boys at right from Apartment 9, $13 on sale at Kohl’s.
If your face is oval: Anything goes. These cool Candie’s Retro Florals are $14.99 at Kohl’s.
If your face is heart-shaped: Choose a pair that adds width to the lower part of the face. Glasses that are wider at the top and narrower at the bottom — aviators and cat-eye sunglasses are good choices. Check out these Cat’s eye lenses from Apartment 9 for $12.99.
