Buying sunglasses is often tricky, but we just might have cracked the code and found a style of shades that literally anyone can wear.
Whether you’ve got a round, heart or oval-shaped face, a pair of white sunglasses can instantly elevate an outfit. You might prefer to wear colourful shades of course, but that’s not to say these are dull. They make just enough of a statement without being garish.
There’s an abundance of creamy-coloured shades that fall under this category.
Celine’s cat-eye style offer a retro-inspired look, oversized shapes offer a touch of glamour, while Gucci’s rectangle shape is this summer’s coolest style. If you haven’t spotted it all over your Instagram feeds already, you soon will. You can also read our sunglasses guide here for more intel on which shades to pick this summer.
This isn’t the first time white sunnies have been topical. Kurt Cobain made a name for Christian Roth’s round shades back in the 90s (and they were recently reissued), while cat-eye styles were popular in the 60s. Even Princess Diana rocked a pair of white-rimmed aviators during her and Prince Charles’ royal tour of the Gulf in 1989. So many style icons can’t be wrong.
