No other accessory has quite the same impact as a great pair of sunglasses, and they also have real longevity — classic black and tortoise frames will still look timeless ten years from now. But with so many styles to choose from it can be tricky to find a favourite. Here, we share a guide to this season’s best sunglasses.
Aviator-style sunglasses with metal frames and brown tinted lenses are the very definition of timeless — they always feel modern yet have vintage appeal. These sunglasses have been around since the 1930s, and we’re loving the newer iterations with updated silhouettes. They’ll typically suit square and oblong face shapes, but a more angular style will complement rounder faces, too.
Round sunglasses really do belong in every wardrobe. This classic style suits almost everyone, particularly oblong and square face shapes. A pair of round frame sunglasses in tortoise are endlessly versatile — you can wear them to the beach or a wedding — and they’re the sort of style you can borrow from your partner and make your own.
Oval sunglasses are a must-have in 2023, but don’t worry, this classic silhouette will always deserve a place in your wardrobe. Elongated oval frames are elegant and the spherical shape can soften the edges of your face. This season, opt for a pair in a classic colourway or add personality with a colourful shade.
If you’re looking for a pair with unisex appeal, look to D-Frame designs. D-Frame sunglasses accentuate your eye area and typically have a browline that tapers out slightly, while the base of the frames is narrower than the brow. These sunglasses will especially complement round, oval and heart shape faces.
