Well, hello gorgeous! You have a round shaped face like the beautiful Steph above! As far as sunglasses go, angles are your friend! Squared-off edges provide contrast to the softer curves of your face. Look for a pair of square sunnies, an edgy cat eye, or an angular pair of oversized shades like the ones Steph is rocking here!

Girlfriend, you have a square face — join the party! [I do too!] To provide contrast to the angles of your jawline, you will want to opt for sunnies with softer, rounded edges. You can rock the heck out of round sunglasses, aviators, or a cute pair of cat eyes, like the ones my girl Cassidy is wearing above!
