TIP: To soften and balance out a strong jaw, look for round or thick-rimmed aviator styles that extend beyond the widest part of the face. Avoid squares and rectangles, which echo an angular bone structure.
TIP: If you have a wide forehead, high cheekbones, and a narrow chin, try aviator or butterfly styles. Steer clear of oversize frames that extend past the temples (they create a top-heavy look) and pointier aviator lenses that mimic the line of your chin.

TIP: You're in luck: Your versatile face shape can pull off any type of frame. Just be sure to choose a size that's in proportion with your face: Enormous shades will swallow a tiny oval shape, while toosmall styles can look almost cartoonish on a larger face.
TIP: Oversize rectangular frames visually lengthen a full face, while sporty or squared-off retro styles give the illusion of a more angular bone structure. Avoid round lenses, which accentuate round cheeks.
