Stay Shady: Summer Sunglasses



Sunglasses. Formerly used solely to shield our eyes from the glare of the sun; now deemed a fashion staple in our everyday outfit choices. As important as the bag I carry on my arm are the sunnies that rest on my nose. I am never without a pair.

Cat-eye, square, wayfarer, oversized? It is tough to determine a preference when choosing which sunglasses to pack for a week in the sunshine.

With lots of frame styles to choose from, in order to avoid getting carried away and checking them all in at the airport, start discovering the correct fit for you.

The Frame For Your Face


You’re lucky and can succeed with any style of sunglasses you decide on. Though if you’re in need of assistance when voting for a favourite, pack rectangular frames that are longer in width.


Sporting frames that are curvy in shape such as oval or cat-eye will emphasize your eyes and balance out your striking features.


To give the effect of a longer shape ensure the geometric, square and wayfarer styles are what you’re heading to the beach wearing. Styles like these produce contours and definition.


You have a face shape that is narrow around your chin yet wider towards your brows. Style light-coloured frames such as tortoiseshell to turn the attention towards the bottom of your face, levelling out the symmetry of your face shape.

Reducing the number of sunglasses packed is never going to be easy. So why whittle the selection down? Let’s take them all.

I ADORE sunglasses for all their reasons to be worn. I have an oval face so no matter what style (as long as they are not HUGE), I can usually wear what I want. Here’s to one last look into summer with a good pair of shades!
