A great pair of sunnies are an essential accessory all year round. Knowing your face shape is always important when picking the perfect pair, but what’s more important is that you are true to your style. There’s no need to stress about, “Am I an oval, heart or rectangle?!”, because the brands you love carry multiple styles and we guarantee there’s a pair for you! To help you out, we visited our Sunglass Hut location where Prableen was exceptional when showing us all of the different brands and looks! So forget about face shape, let’s help you find that perfect style by using some of our favourite fashion icons:
If you are a Kate Middleton, you invest in high quality pieces, while maintaining an effortless look, making a pair from BVLGARI or Persols perfect for you! BVLGARI sunglasses are embellished with beautiful detailing that won’t overpower your outfit, they even offer the option of a frameless lens. Persols have a classic style and are known for their amazing quality. Did you know that each pair are handmade in Italy and take a total of 8 days to produce? With Persols, you are guaranteed a timeless look!
If your style is boho chic like Yoko Ono, a pair of round shades is a must-have to complete your wardrobe! Big or small lenses, our two favourite brands for this look are by Miu Miu and Ray-Ban. If you want to keep it simple, go with the Boho Rounds by Ray-Ban, but if you want to add a little “umph”, make them a statement piece with Miu Miu!
If you relate to the ever timeless Audrey Hepburn, then we say a pair from Tiffany & Co or Prada are a necessity! Audrey always wore a bold accessory or two to accent her classic outfits. Prada is a great option when looking for a statement piece, with their funky arms and oversized frames, you can bet everyone will be asking about them! The other option is a pair from Tiffany & Co because how could you not if Hepburn is your idol, they basically go together like Coco and Chanel.
It’s safe to say that Marilyn Monroe has taught us a thing or two about fashion. Now let’s bring this iconic blonde to the present, we can totally see her on the beach or driving up the California Coast in a great pair of sunnies. Whether you’re the beach babe or behind the wheel, the two perfect styles for you are by Ray-Ban! The Flash Lens Aviators yell tropical while the Tortoise Shell Clubmaster adds a touch of sophistication and fun.
Lastly, whether you’re a Rihanna or Chiara, Dior is for you. There are so many options from this amazing brand, but one pair we’re obsessing over are the Dior So Real. Aside from this style being absolutely stunning, they literally suit every face shape out there, so if you can get your hand on these (there’s a waiting list in most places), you definitely should!
