In the whole, wide world of men's clothing and accessories, there are few things that look more kick-ass than a pair of baller sunglasses. That's why all dudes should own at least one quality pair of shades. 

When you’re buying sunglasses, you shouldn’t just grab any pair that you think looks good on the shelf and slap it on your face. They also need to flatter your features.

Jawline so sharp you can cut glass? Well done, my masculine dude. Your angular features look best when they’re balanced out with rounder, teardrop-shaped sunglasses, as you can see on Brad Pitt in the picture above.

Round faces have narrow foreheads, round cheeks, and an equally round jaw, so you need to offset that roundness with some squareness and sharp angles.

Heart-shaped, a.k.a. triangle faces have a narrow forehead and a strong, wide jaw, and since sunglasses are supposed to be a complement your face, go for a frame that has a noticeable brow and a a thinner, leaner base.

If you have a narrow forehead, wider cheeks, and a sharp, narrow jaw, you have a diamond face, just like Johnny Depp. 

For this face shape, a strong brow line on your glasses is a wise choice, because it'll stand out against your high cheekbones, and enhance your features.
