Sunglasses for Everyone

Sunglasses are the must-have accessory for summer. But with so many shapes and styles to choose from, it's sometimes hard to determine what's right for you.

Never fear, "Early Show" Style Contributor Katrina Szish has the perfect sunglasses for everyone.

Szish says it is important to first determine your face shape to steer yourself towards a trend that works for you.

This is the most common and universally ideal face shape.
The length of your face is longer than the width of your face.
Famous Oval Face: Halley Berry

TRY: Most frame shapes work with oval faces. You can get away with almost anything. Cat-eyed (the hottest trend) works well.
AVOID: Frames that are too large for your features

Kara Ross gold cuff bracelet, $275, Kara Ross

TRY: Round frames that help balance out the hard angles of a square face
AVOID: Square shaped frames that echo/accentuate angles of the face

Wide as it is long.
Few angles, full cheeks and rounded chin.
Famous Round Face: Kirstin Dunst

TRY: Sunglasses that help create angles/Stronger line on top of sunglasses to counteract roundness of face and make faces appear longer and thinner
AVOID: Round frames (like John Lennon shades) that make your face rounder
