Nothing completes an outfit better than a pair of stylish shades. Whether you have a round, oval, heart or square face, there's a perfect pair to suit your face shape. Take a cue from celebs on the frame that best suits your face.  Oval shaped Screen Shot 2016-09-28 at 2.34.01 PM Like Minnie Dlamini if you have an oval shape, then you’re spoilt for choice. Go with round shapes if you're daring and edgier frames if you want an unassuming look. Styles that work: Circular, rectangular, oversized or round. Heart shaped  Screen Shot 2016-09-28 at 2.25.07 PM If you have a broad brow and narrow chin like Ayanda Thabethe, go for bottom-heavy frames. Shapes that are parallel and extend past the width of your face complement your strong jawline. Aviators are also another great option as the silhouette contrasts your heart-shaped face. Styles that work: Exaggerated bottoms, rectangular or aviators. Square shaped Screen Shot 2016-09-28 at 2.35.23 PM Offset your sharper features with curvier frames like Gail Mabalane. A modern cat-eye shape with round edges that curve downwards are a must. Styles that work: Aviators, butterfly or cat-eye. Round shaped Screen Shot 2016-09-28 at 4.30.10 PM Complement your round features with rectangular frames as they'll help elongate your face. Let Bonang Matheba, seen here wearing square aviators, be your guide. Styles that work: Rectangular or sharp cat-eyes.
