#1 FASHION OR FUNCTION? Susan recommends you have a pair of sunglasses for fun and a pair that you use every day. Your fashion pair should be elegant and fashion forward something you can dress up for an event or party.

FIND A FRAME FOR YOUR FACE SHAPE
Face shape plays an important part in picking a great shape. Here’s the run down thanks to the experts in store…
IF YOU HAVE A SQUARE FACE
You have features like a prominent forehead and a strong jawline. This makes you the perfect candidate for a few different sunglass shapes.
TOP PICKS Try curvier frames like round, oval, cat eye, butterfly and semi-rimless to accentuate your eyes and playfully balance a striking jawline.
IF YOU HAVE A OVAL SHAPED FACE
You can pull off just about any look when it comes to sunglasses.
TOP PICKS Choose rectangle frames with a horizontal orientation to balance an oval face shape. Up-swept styles are good for complimenting high cheekbones.
IF YOU HAVE A ROUND FACE
You have soft, contoured, feminine features, and generally have a width and height that are roughly equivalent. There are a lot of great opportunities to show off your style with a nice pair of shades.
TOP PICKS Geometric shapes like horizontal frames, Wayfarers and rectangle shapes will give your face a longer, thinner look.
IF YOU HAVE A HEART SHAPED FACE
This means there’s a good chance you’ve got a broader brow and a narrow chin. You can direct attention downward or elongate your look to even out proportions with the right pair of frames.
TOP PICKS Light-colored frames, frames with thin temples, or frames with exaggerated bottoms.
