5 sunglass trends you need to try before the summer ends

There's nothing boring about the unique sunglasses that have flooded the market this summer. Whether you're on the hunt for round, cat's eye, colourful or oversized, we've got you—and your peepers—covered. 

1. Feline flicks

If you’re looking to add a wee bit of je n'e sais quoi to your ensemble, try topping it off with a pair of cat-eye sunglasses. The shape gives your look instant old-Hollywood cred.

2. Frequent flyer 

A sleek pair of metallic aviators are a timeless frame with instant cool factor. The sporty frames are flattering on most face shapes, and it’s a style you shouldn’t be afraid to invest in because it will never fall out of favour.

3. Go bold or go home

We advise people with small, round faces with delicate features to skip the oversized frame trend; however, oval, square and heart-shaped faces can flawlessly pull off these stylish statement makers. A black frame can look amazing on some people, but overwhelming on others. For a less intense effect, try a hefty frame in a pastel, grey or tortoiseshell.

4. Round rules

Round sunnies are having a victory lap [because they were cool in the past? If so,when?] and they continue to be the au courant shades of the season. The trick to finding a flattering frame is to choose one that contrasts with your face shapeif you have a round face shape, you should probably pass on round frames.
