Since development in the 1900’s, sunglasses have now become one of the most common accessories seen today. Not only do they protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, but they can also be the perfect addition to complete your outfit. We could even say it’s become the trendiest accessory in day to day life whether you’re travelling or having party with your friends, sunglasses are always there playing a fashionable role. But with that said, choosing the right pair of sunglasses is a hit-or-miss. Some may look good on you – others might not.

1.  The Wayfarers

 Iconic label Ray Ban made this style a revolutionary trend  when it emerged in the 1950’s, with the design providing a refreshing change from the common metal eyewear. Since then, it’s popularity has fluctuated, but from recent runway shows, it seems the style is coming back with a vengeance. This retro look is usually accompanied with a faintly colored rim or lens, and perfectly suits any casual wear or spring/summer getup.

 

 2. Round Frame Sunglasses

 

These were a major craze in the 1920’s and 1930s, when sunglasses were diverging from its primary use as protection from the sun. The round frame provides you a vintage look with a hint of eccentricity, and it is versatile enough to complement all fashion occasions from formal to casual. Since it doesn’t take up the entire face (as opposed to big aviator sunglasses), your facial features are accentuated – as such, you’re provided with a kinder and softer look which can be helpful especially if you’re trying to impress that special someone.

 

 3. Aviator Sunglasses

Aviator sunglasses are a style of sunglasses that were developed by Bausch & Lomb. The original Bausch & Lomb design is now marketed as Ray-Ban Aviators, although other manufacturers also produce aviator style sunglasses. They are characterized by dark, often reflective lenses having area two or three times the area of the eyeball, and very thin metal frames. 

 

4. D-Frame Sunglasses

Creating a contemporary and retro look, D-frame sunglasses have been renowned for their precision in design and unique perspective in the eyewear trends. While other styles retain an ovular look, D-frame sunglasses are instantly recognizable from the sharp straight slice across the top of the rims, radiating a futuristic feel while still oozing sex appeal.

 

 5. Mirrored Sunglasses

What sets mirrored sunglasses apart from the other styles is the fact that they are so reflective that those around you can use it as a moving mirror. What we love most about this style is how brilliant they look when they are photographed – it’s attention-grabbing, and exudes a mysterious but confident persona. If you’re a man that wants to show others that you mean business, mirrored sunglasses are the way to go. A primary example of this style is aviator sunglasses.
