Summertime is nearly here, and now that the sun is out past 4:30, you need to be properly prepared. It’s about that time to up your sunglass game, so you can stunt at cookouts, outdoor concerts, and rooftop fêtes all season long.
Here are 5 sunglass shapes to keep in mind when you’re shopping:
Cat Eye glasses were über popular back in the ’50s, and they’ve made a strong comeback in the 20-teens. This shape is easy to wear, and looks good on almost any face (including my incredibly round one). Try these options on for size:
Round sunnies (I know some of you hate that word but hey, I gotta use different terms so as not to be repetitive) are another throwback making a comeback. The frames once associated with toking, guitar-strumming hippies have returned as the it-shape for ultra cool femmes. As you well know, Beyoncé loves her Linda Farrow x The Row shades, and Nicole Richie is another fan of the shape. This sort of silhouette looks best on heart shaped and oval faces. Check out these options:
Angular sunglasses are a good look if you’ve got a round face. Keyshia Cole looked fab in these Karen Walker square sunnies, but if this particular pair doesn’t do it for you, there are plenty of styles to choose from:
Have you ever seen anyone looks bad in Wayfarers? Aviators? Classic shapes like these have been around so long because they look great on every face. Get some here:
If you’re one to eschew tradition and let your quirky style take center stage, funky shades are for you. In a range of shapes from the whimsical to the edgy, there are unlimited options.
And there you have it! Which shape is your fave?
