Last week we got a new dresser for our master bedroom, which meant I did a little closet organization with the newly added extra space. One of the first things I pulled out of my closet and put in the dresser were all my sunglasses. For the last few years they’ve been piled in a bowl on the shelf in my closet, but now they are neatly arranged in the top dresser drawer, all laid out and easy to see. I’d forgotten how many different styles I owned and how many pairs I hadn’t worn in years!

Sunglasses are one of my favorite accessories, not only because they protect my eyes, but they often complete an outfit for me. I love wearing all kinds of styles of sunglasses, but there are definitely some that I know I look better in than others. For example, my rectangular pairs are the most unworn of all my frames because they are the least flattering for my face shape. My wayfarer and round pairs are the most flattering, and thus get worn the very most.

Do you know what glasses are best for your face shape? Here’s a quick little cheat sheet:

Square Shaped Face: Round or cateye (avoid any pairs with sharp angles)
Round Shaped Face: Oversized, rectangular, and cat-eye (avoid round pairs!)
Heart Shaped Face: Cat-eye or round glasses (avoid rectangular)
Long Face: Anything oversized, especially round (avoid any pairs with small or narrow frames)

Oval Shaped Face: Anything and everything. Buy them all!

So now you’re probably thinking you need a new pair of sunglasses, right? Well you’re in luck. Today I’ve teamed up with SunglassesShop to give away one pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses of your choice*!

Enter through the rafflecopter widget below. The giveaway will run for one week, and the winner will be notified via email. Good luck!

*polarised/titanium and limited edition frames excluded.

    I always end up with the oversized round frames. I love aviators but they end up looking not so hot on me!

      Have you tried the Zenni Optical website? A friend with always-cute glasses got me onto them. You can order RX glasses with 80% gray tint and bam–cute sunglasses! They’re anywhere from $12-$50. I get regular glasses and sunglasses every time my prescription changes.
