As everyone is basking and maintaining their golden tan in the warm summer sun, it's exceptionally important to remember to keep your eyes protected. Sunglasses, a stylish, yet practical accessory is a must at times like this. Whether you're chilling out on an exotic beach or strolling down the sunny streets of a faraway country, a pair of sunglasses should be there to keep your eyes safe. Everyone has a distinct face shape, therefore finding the right frame shape that flatters your face is a key factor. Here are a few suggestions for all face shapes.
