Here comes the sun! We'll help you find the best frames for your face so you'll look fabulous all summer long. If you have an oval face like Drew's, you're lucky because just about any style suits your shape. Stay away from a brow bar (the bar that extends above the nose) if you have a long face-it pulls the eye upward, giving the illusion of a longer face.

Rectangular frames with slightly rounded edges work well on Uma Thurman's long oval face. If you have a long forehead, look for a pair where the top of the frame hits above the eyebrow-this will help shorten the forehead.

Reduce the sharp angles that a strong jawline creates with a pair of soft, curvy sunglasses like Alicia's style. The gold detailing along the top adds great drama to this pair of shades.

If you have a round face shape, you can make it look longer and thinner with angled cat-eye frames like Kate's. Ones that cut sharply from the temple to the cheek complement her face.

Women with strong features can wear a bold pair of shades. If you have very dainty, small features, it's best to steer clear of a pair like Mariah's, and opt for something smaller and simpler.

While the shape of these Ksubi glasses looks great on Gwen, it's also important to keep the frame's color in mind. If you wear a bright shade-which is all the rage right now-make sure you don't wear a matching outfit. Neutrals, as Gwen demonstrates, are best with turquoise.

If you fall between an oval and square face shape, like Lily, try a pair that has both roundness and angles to it, like her pair. Also, the bright pink frames and see-through lenses are a great way to draw attention to the eyes.

If you're concerned about sun protection (as you should be), protect the eye area with a large pair of frames like Hilary's with lenses that block both UVA and UVB rays. Who knew preventing crows feet could be so stylish?
