For the most part, we tend to accessorize a little more simply during the summer season. This is in part due to the heat, and the lack of need for layering. Knowing this, choosing the right accessories for your summer outfit are even more important. The perfect pair of sunglasses has the opportunity to really elevate and pull together a summer look. Trends for summer eyewear tend to be diverse, but choosing something that compliments your face shape is a crucial aspect to selecting your ideal pair.
For round faces, choose angular sunglasses. A great option is the classic Wayfarer frame from Ray Ban. Alternatively, if you have a square shaped face, be sure to go with round sunnies. This year, round sunglasses a la Lennon are making a big comeback, so go ahead and indulge your inner hippie.
Long faces work best with oversized sunglasses, as they work well to balance out the proportions on a long face. If you have an oval face shape, any style of sunglasses will work on you. Since this face shape allows you to be a bit more daring, check out Tom Ford’s famous Nikita sunglasses. These sunglasses are super chic, and can be work with a casual outfit for instant cool girl appeal. Finally, if you have a heart shape face, try a cool pair of aviators. The round edges will help draw the focus downward on the face. Whichever pair of sunnies you choose this summer keep these simple tips in mind to elevate your favourite summer outfit!
