Sunglasses are as personal as your lipstick—you wear them with everything you own, over and over. You shouldn’t just like your sunglasses; you should completely love them.
If the glasses shift when you shake your head, you need to have them tightened—or you need a different style.
Start by knowing your face shape. If your hairline is straight across your forehead and you have a strong jaw, you have a square-shaped face. You probably look best in rounded frames, which soften those lines.
If your face is round or oval, look for straighter frames—Wayfarers or anything with a squared-off bottom. If your chin is much lower than your jawline, you may have a heart-shaped face. You want frames that mimic this tapered shape, such as aviators.
Check the size
A common mistake people make is choosing sunglasses that are too wide.
The frames should never be more than two fingers’ distance from the outside of your temple. And they should sit securely on the bridge of your nose.
Mirrored lenses – in lots of colors – are a huge trend this year. Miu Miu has subtle ones, and both Michael Kors and Tory Burch have great gradient versions. My favorites are the blue mirrored Ray-Ban aviators.
We can’t all be John Lennon
Round frames are the hottest thing right now; you’ll see lots of plastic with metal bridges. They’re not easy to pull off. Try on multiple pairs, since even a few millimeters at the bridge of the nose or outer corners can make a big difference in how they look.
