Summer doesn't just mean soaking up some sun in swimsuits and shorts; it also means staying protected from the sun with sunscreen, sun hats and sunglasses. Choosing sunscreen and a sun hat for the season might not be difficult decisions, but choosing the right pair of sunglasses is an investment. Not only do they serve as a means of protecting your eyes from intense UV rays, but also they are a fashion statement.

Picking the right pair of frames depends not only on your personal sense of style but also your face shape. Jenn Falik, lifestyle expert and creator of The Ultimate Edit newsletter, stopped by to share all of the tips you need to pick out a pair of sunglasses for your face shape and even shared a few affordable picks to consider.
