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 staple for a summer wardrobe.
This season they don’t disappoint. From oversized shades, to tinted aviators, there’s a style to suit every face shape in 2021 – but the real hero of the year is the rectangular shape. Whether it’s a pair of half-moon sunglasses, or the subtle angular addition to the beloved cat-eye shape, it seems we can’t escape the androgynous look – and why would we want to?
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.
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.
