If you're having trouble finding the most flattering pair for your face, don't worry! TODAY Style Squad member Jill Martin has you covered with a few easy tricks to find your face shape, and suggestions for which frame will look most stunning on you.


If you have a wider forehead and the rest of your face gradually narrows to your chin, there's a pretty good chance your face is heart-shaped. The best frames for you are cat-eye sunglasses or round frames.

An oval-shaped face is slightly longer in the lower half and has a bit of a rounded jaw. If you have an oval face, you're going to want to stick to soft, angular frames like aviator sunglasses.

If your face is about as long as it is wide and you have a more rounded jawline, you most likely have a round face. To balance out your less angular features, add a pair of wide or rectangular frames.

If your forehead, cheekbones and jaw are about equal width and you have a strong jaw, you may have a square-shaped face. To complement your shape, go for round frames, oval-shaped shades or cat-eye sunglasses.

If the bottom half of your face is longer than the top half, you might have an oblong face shape. This shape can often fit into other categories, but the best sunglasses include oversized shades and wrap-style sunglasses.
