I’m loving the blend of vintage and modern looks in this year’s eyewear trends. Especially the comeback of cat-eye frames and tinted lenses.
Many designs pay homage to classic silhouettes, the eclectic yet subtly-bold styles of the 70s, and the futuristic looks of the Y2K era.
However, it’s not always easy to find the right style for you. Finding the best sunglasses can be fun and tedious, especially if you have difficulty finding a frame that flatters your face shape.
The shape of your face will play a crucial role in determining which sunglasses look best on you. Even with oversized frames dominating this year’s summer trends, they can often be too big and can overwhelm your features.
If you have a round face, go for angular frames to create some contrast. If you have a square face, opt for softer, rounder frames to balance your features.
Oval faces can wear pretty much any shape, while heart-shaped faces look great in cat-eye frames.
With all the trend reports, the best way to find the best sunglasses for you is to try on as many styles as possible. Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and try on something new.
