Oversized Sunglasses

Oversized sunglasses are a timeless choice. They’ve been a fashion mainstay for many years, and they’re definitely sticking around. For this look, shape is less important than size — so go bold and pick a pair that dominates your face. This style is a great option for women with a larger face, as the big frame makes the face actually look smaller.

Round Sunglasses

Over the last few years, round-rimmed glasses have shifted from a vintage style to the mainstream — thanks to runway and red carpet appearances. Ashley Olsen, Victoria Beckham, Rihanna and others have all been spotted donning round sunnies. Round-rimmed sunglasses are most flattering on women with sharp, angular features, with square- or oblong-shaped faces, as the round shape softens and balances facial features.

  • should have gone to specsavers lol

  • I love love love an oversized pair of sunnies. Especially when you don’t want to wear make up! I’ll be looking for a new pair on HEWI London for SS17 🙂

  • One can never go wrong with oversized sunglasses. I just might have way too many pairs of oversized sunglasses!

    I also really like that cat-eye sunglasses are popular again as it’s a feminine look.

    I’m not a fan of the round sunglasses as I feel it’s more of a masculine look popularized by the likes of Elton John, John Lennon and Harry Potter! I am okay with it in an oversized style.
