Warby Parker's Barkley Sunglasses in Striped Beach With Crystal (pictured here) retail from $95.Warby ParkerThere are two schools of thought when it comes it picking out a new pair of sunglasses: There are those who'll instruct you to look for frames with features that'll complement your face shape, and others who'll tell you to go for whatever styles makes you feel good — whether they're aviators or clubmasters or something else.
Finding a middle ground between the two is ideal. You want frames that flatter you, but you also want ones that reflect your personal style.
To help you navigate this spring's crop of sunglasses, we talked with experts from two of the biggest players in the eyewear industry: Neil Blumenthal and Dave Gilboa, the co-founders and co-CEOs of Warby Parker, and Alessandro Mariani, the senior brand director for Ray-Ban in North America.
Using face shapes as a jumping-off point, we're introducing you to some of our favorite shades of the season, and providing advice on how to make any pair work for you — even if they're not the ones we've paired with your shape. All three experts agree you should feel free to shop other categories.
"Contrary to popular belief, there are no hard and fast rules [for picking out sunglasses]." Blumenthal and Gilboa told Business Insider. "Our ultimate guideline is to wear comfortable frames that make you feel good. But, if you want some tips for picking out a pair, think 'juxtaposition'. A strong, distinct square frame works best for a round face, while a rounder frame with a softer edge complements a more angular face."
Mariani concurs and adds that sunglasses are "practical accessories that should look good as well as protect eye health." He provides more details on five of the most common face shapes — square, triangle, round, oval, and heart — and frames to complement each in a moment.
Have a look at each shape's description, figure out which frames you like most, and go about buying a pair from there. If you're having a difficult time deciding which face shape you are, try consulting Ray-Ban's virtual mirror or Sunglass Hut's Face Shape Generator.
And if all else fails, be comforted with the knowledge that classic aviators look sharp on pretty much everyone.
