With many more long days of glorious sunshine on the horizon, it is a good time to update your sunglass style. A pair of on-trend shades are an easy way to elevate your look. Let’s look at what eye-catching styles are hot this summer:
Black and White
While a beautiful black frame will remain the eternal classic, the chunky solid white sunglasses are a must have this season. Stand out from the crowd with these iconic Cat-Eye white frames from Saint Laurent.
Angular style sunglasses will accentuate the face shape and modernise your look. A slim rectangular frame can lengthen your face, making it appear longer and thinner. Rectangular glasses are a perfect for an oval face shape. We recommend the Rectangular Sunglasses by Gucci inspired by the coveted GG Marmont handbags.
Retro cat eye
We love the drama of the 50’s inspired cat eye shades. This sophisticated style with a flare at the temple provides a flattering lift! Bottega Veneta offer these striking Cat-Eye Frames in both black and tortishell.
Oversized retro style
Scale up your style with big, oversized lenses that shout confidence. Be bold and go big with Chloé’s Poppy or Demi gold metal frames that bring a sense of retro nostalgia. We love the coloured lenses in these oversized frames that express style and creativity.
These half-moon shaped frames offer a flattering style for a round or oval shaped face. The angular, often oversized style is very striking. We recommend Saint Laurent's D-frames in Black with their discreet logo embellishment on the arm.
How do I choose a style that is right for my face?
The best way to find a style to compliment your face is to first assess your face shape. The aim is to find a sunglass style that creates balance with your own shape. If your face leans on the square side, you're best to try a round or oval-shaped frame. For women with a rounder face or fuller cheeks rectangular or square frames are more likely to compliment your shape.
Why not try them on?
If you’re uncertain about a style, why not buy two or more pairs to try on in the comfort of your own home. You can easily return the pair/s that don’t suit with our free and easy returns process.
