What summer outfit would be complete without a chic pair of sunglasses? Even if you come across dozens of adorable summer frames, it can be hard figure out which one looks best on you. Here's everything you need to know to pick the pair that is perfect for your face.

First you'll need to start by knowing what shape your face is: heart, round, oval, or square. Here's a quick way to figure this out. Pull all of your hair back from your face and using a dry erase marker, look into a large mirror, and trace the outline of your face onto the mirror. This will help you see the shape of your face.

Now that you know what shape your face is, here's the frames that frames you should wear this summer.

Heart Shaped Face- A heart-shaped face is defined by a broader forehead and narrower jawline and chin. So grab a pair of cat eye glasses or aviators to accentuate and mimic your features.

Round Face- A round face is defined by a soft, circular shape where the width and length are almost equal. Go for squared framed and wayfayers. These will give your face a contoured look without makeup!

Oval Face- An oval face is defined by balanced features and a chin that is slightly narrower than the forehead. And lucky you, almost any frame looks great on you! So try all the trendy looks and colorful frames this summer. Just make sure you're choosing frames that are the same width as your face.

Square Face- A square face is defined by strong, well-defined angles in the forehead, cheeks, and jawline. Look for circular and rounded frames to balance your jawline. Also think about proportion, the larger your face, the larger your glasses should be. Your glasses should extend beyond the widest part of your face.
