Stay cool all year with sunglasses for women
Sunglasses are a summer essential – but if you have sensitive eyes, you'll use them every day. Even in the dead of winter, the sun can be bright, and squinting is never in style! Choose a cool pair of shades and show off your signature look. There are so many styles and shapes of sunglasses out there, it's easy to find your style. Go for a big, oversized pair for a classic celebrity-inspired look, or look for a pair with an unusual shape to stand out from the crowd. If you're sporty, look for a special pair suitable for running or cycling. They should have flexible arms and, for a fun, sporty style, go for mirrored lenses in whatever colour you prefer.
Finding sunglasses to suit your face
Choosing sunglasses for women is all about your face shape. The key is to create a contrast: If your face is round, try a pair of square-shaped lenses. Square face? Go round – but not fully circular, which can be hard to pull off. Instead, look for a gently rounded pair. For other face shapes, you can experiment with different styles. If you've got a strong jaw, soften it with a pair of winged frames that will draw the eye upward. Heart-shaped faces can pull off circular, John Lennon-style shades if you want to stand out. Don't want to draw too much attention to yourself? Choose another pair, with a square top and rounded lenses.
The golden rules of wearing sunglasses
Shades are an absolute classic – but how can you stay looking cool? The first rule is simple: Never wear your sunglasses indoors. You may think that it'll make you seem like a celeb, but the truth is that you'll just look like you're battling a hangover! Be careful about keeping your pair propped up on top of your head for too long, too. Once the sun goes down, tuck them away in your handbag. Tone down the accessories around your face. If you're wearing a cool pair of shades, then adding earrings, necklaces, and prominent makeup will just be far too much. You're better off keeping things simple, and putting on some rings or bangles if you feel naked without your jewellery. In winter, sling a big, chunky scarf loosely around your neck – never too tight, or it'll ruin the casual style of your shades.
