Once wore and popularized by the pilots, aviators are loved by sundry. They go really well with
a square face cut. A square-shaped face is usually a very broad face that gives a “fuller”
appearance. Therefore aviators will do great with square or broad faces but you can also try
round glasses as they’re opposite of your face shape and will make it look narrower than it is.

corners/angles. Such faces have a cherubic charm and to enhance the corners of your faces
you can opt for a shield-style pair.

opt for a wrap as well if you’re more into experimenting then you can go for a simple square
pair to play a safe game. These glasses will give your face a sharper and smarter look but be

careful while choosing the frame if you’re buying a wrap as a showy frame will make you look
way too flashy.
