Sunglasses, what shape, size?

  1. Hi, I am finally going to retire my Dior sunglasses that I've had for about a year. I am in the hunt for new ones but I am not sure if the 'big' sunnies trend is staying.. I don't want to spend $200-$400 in sunglasses that might end up not being in style in 2 months.

    I have seen a couple of oversized aviatior style ones that I really like, what do you guys think is the safest, most fashionable way to go? :p

    TIA!
     
  2. safe and fashionable: the 'normal' large sunglasses - can't describe it very well but by that I don't mean over over sized. but I have had normal large sunglasses for years now and I can't say they are ever out of style.

    aviators are great but the classic shape so doesn't suit me. I'd say try them out - the only way to know whether they are for you.

    I will see if I can find a pic of what I mean - btw, I'd say anything by Tom Ford (maybe not the Whitney as it may be over soon?), Oliver Peoples or Chanel can't be wrong in my book
     
  3. right now i love gold-rimmed aviators and white frames with dark shades.

    but for classic ones that are safe, i agree with lara0122, go with dark and a bit rectangular. Here are some I like:

    though, those might not work for you. It really all depends on your face shape and your taste. Have fun!
     
  4. I consider Aviators total classics. I mean, they've been around for quite a while and I really like how they look. I think you'd be safe with a pair of those.
     
  5. I love Oliver Peoples...my fave sunglasses in the world!!!
     
  6. Two of the most important factors when shopping for sunnies (well, at least to me) are: 1. buy sunglasses that suit YOUR face (never mind what the trend is); 2. make sure the fit is comfortable (there is nothing I hate more than seeing someone adjusting their sunnies 1000 times while they are talking to you). If you don't want to spend a lot of money on sunnies but still want trendy, H&M is the way to go! They have awesome sunnies that are styled after the latest trends and cost pennies!:idea: eBay is another great alternative (the only downside is that you can't try them on so you have to know what style suits you, etc.).
