By Nicole Mann Novick
Cat-eye shades are not only on trend this season, but they are also just the right proportion for women whose faces are a little wider at the temples and narrower at the chin.

Opposites Attract5 of 13
Square-faced ladies should look for rounder styles with frames that soften your appearance rather than compete with strong features.

Line Of Sight6 of 13
With their straight lines, angular frames are a great way to balance the curves of a round face.

Spectacular View7 of 13
Ladies with an oval face have it easy when it comes to sunglasses. The proportionate and softly rounded curves of your face mean that anything goes—even a wild, retro pair.

If your face is more oblong in shape, then a sporty, oversized pair with longer lenses will be a great fit. Stay away from pairs with shorter frames, as these will appear out of proportion with your features.
SHOP NOW: Mosley Tribes Hayes sunglasses, $210
Shady Lady9 of 13
Oversized shades are quintessentially chic for ladies with pronounced facial features. Go for a smaller version of the style if you have a diminutive face to avoid getting lost behind large frames.
SHOP NOW: Oliver Peoples Donyale sunglasses, $280
Look At You10 of 13
If you want your pretty face to stand out and not your sunglasses, then choose a pair that is subtle in construction and color.
SHOP NOW: Paul Smith Allan sunglasses, $255
See Through11 of 13
For ladies who are blessed with high cheekbones, try a rimless style that allows your stellar feature to stand out.
SHOP NOW: Ray-Ban Clubmaster sunglasses, $145
Shape Up12 of 13
For gals with a more triangular face, try an old-school style—where the frame is just slightly narrower at the bottom—to give balance to your forehead and jawline.
SHOP NOW: Super Sunglasses basic sunglasses, $117

Aviators tend to look good on everyone, but stick by the size rule: Those with more pronounced features should choose a larger pair, while those with more fine features should opt for smaller specs.
