5 Sunglass Shapes to Try this Summer



What is summer without the perfect pair of sunglasses? Not only are sunglasses such an easy way to accessorize any look, they also serve a major purpose of blocking those harmful UV rays from your delicate little eyeballs. Today I wanted to share 5 of my favorite shapes for this summer that will pack a punch but not too much of a punch (nothing like this). I’ve also never really done a post like this on the blog and I’d love to know your feedback.

OVAL SUNGLASSES

Lately, I have been gravitating towards more vintage style sunnies and the oval shape is perfect. I’m sure you’ve all seen my obsession with the classic Ray-Ban rounds, well, I think the oval is the updated “slightly more vintage” take.

CRYSTAL COLORED FRAMES

I love adding a pop of color to my more muted outfits with a bright pair of sunnies like the ones featured here form Marc Jacobs. The clear crystal frames are a nice touch especially if you find them in a unique color / shape.

TINTED SUNGLASSES

If your over the typical black lens sunglasses, think about changing up the lense color as opposed to the frame color (seen in prior style). We saw this a lot over the past couple months with the trending yellow lens aviators and other vintage colored lenses all the cool kids are rocking.

RETRO OVAL

This style has been my most worn during the entire spring season and now rolling into summer. The retro shape is what I find so unique and a lot of designers released sunnies like this such as Saint Laurent and Acne Studios which elevated the overall vibe.

UPDATED CLASSICS

This square shape use to be my go-to before experimenting with any other sunglass shape. This season I am taking it back to the classic wayfarer shape but adding a flare. I think this is the most wearable frame for all face shapes as well!

    It’s interesting because I’ve tried on an oval pair, which didn’t suit me at all – but I’ve also tried on a retro shaped oval frame which suits my face shape more. I find ‘Whistles’ are a fantastic place to invest in some timeless pieces which are great quality!

    While you haven’t done a segment like this before, it proves to be a really interesting read. I’ve never seen a post like it before. As I’m away as of next week, it’s always helpful to have a further insight on something I’m looking to invest in – This time around, eyewear!
