Colored sunglasses work amazing for different face shapes. Therefore, if you have an oblong face, choose oversized sunglasses with colored or embellished frames as the will draw the attention away from the length of your face. If you choose sunglasses with temple details, these will draw the eye to the middle of the head.

Nevertheless, avoid small sunglasses. If you have a square face, choose brown or beige sunglasses instead of black ones. Also, for a diamond face shape, oversized colored sunglasses are perfect.
