Sunglasses are not just a warm-weather style staple. Consider wearing a pair all-year round to accessorize your look while also protecting you eyes! If you want a versatile look that goes with almost anything, think about a pair of Ray-Ban Aviators. These shades have been around for decades and they continue to be cool. If you're seeking an even trendier look, how about a pair of round or cat-eye sunglasses? Wear them with a fedora and a blazer to embrace the menswear-inspired look.
Which sunglasses are best for my face shape?
When it comes to sunglasses, balance is key. Quick rules of thumb: don’t wear circle frames if you have a round face; those with a square face shape, angular shades are not your look. But, there are a variety of cute sunnies that will work for everyone! If you have a round face, go with wide, rectangular or square frames for a slimming effect. Heart-shaped faces will love cat eye and round retro styles. Ditto for square jawlines—the soft edges of cat eye and round sunglasses are flattering. As for those with an oval face shape, lucky you can reach for any pair; try aviators.
What are popular frame styles for sunglasses?
Aviator sunglasses exude classic cool, and the design looks as fresh today as it did when worn mainly by pilots. For vintage flair, cat eye pairs are feminine and glamorous—modernize them by wearing with more current looks. John Lennon popularized round sunglasses and they still are a go-to for both hippie and retro rocker leanings. Wraparound and polarized styles are ideal for sport. Wayfarer frames are pretty universally flattering with their squarish shape and soft edges.
What outfit goes with cat eye sunglasses?
Since cat eye sunglasses are throwbacks to ‘50s vintage glamour, pair them with something more current. Wear them with a minimalist black and white ensemble of black shorts, white blouse and a pair of wedge heel shoes. For ladylike style, put them together with a breezy a-line dress and flats. Avoid outfits from the same era to prevent looking too retro—unless that’s what you’re going for, in which case we hope you go all-in with a nice red lip to top off the look!
