Sunglasses might seem like a simple detail, but they have the ability to transform an outfit. Confidence boosting and stylish, they’re also a necessary and practical staple for a summer wardrobe – a perfect excuse to invest in a new pair for 2021.
This season they don’t disappoint. From oversized shades, to tinted aviators, there’s a style to suit every face shape – but the real hero of the year is the rectangular shape. These work on round and heart-shaped faces, while oval faces suit square shades better.
In the other end of the shades spectrum, it seems we can’t escape the androgynous look – and why would we want to? Whether it’s a pair of half-moon sunglasses, or the subtle angular addition to the beloved cat-eye shape, our shades are getting a slick update.
Every celebrity from Kendall Jenner to Lizzo has been spotted in a pair of angular sunglasses – but if a round shape suits your face shape better, you’re in luck as they’re going no where either.
Here, we’ve broken it down and found the biggest shapes for spring and where to buy them now, with both affordable and designer options for those looking to invest.
