Defined by a flick at the top-outer corners, the cat eye was a sure-fire hit at Fendi.
And luckily, these feline-inspired sunnies are suitable for all face shapes!
If you have a round or square face, you want to select cat-eye sunglasses that counter-act this fullness. Go for a wider, fuller, bottom-heavy shape to create angles: hello cheek bones! Try these beautiful bargain sunnies below:
2. Pop Of Colour
If you have a round face, opt for a contrasting square or rectangular shape. Like these fiery red babies:
Heart or triangle face beauties should opt for a classic Wayfarer shape, the long, rectangular shape of these slims the forehead and draws attention to those Reese Witherspoon cheek bones! Try these cute pink sunglasses with Nina Ricci style ombre detailing:
Ladies with long faces should opt for aviator styles, as their wideness will make your face appear shorter. Check out these aviators with sea-blue lenses:
Got a square face? Balance this out with a round frame. These colourful oversized babies are your new BFF:
Oval shaped girls: don't worry, I didn't forget about you! You can wear any of the above styles due to the perfect symmetry of your face. You lucky devil!
There's always being something so timeless and elegant about oversized sunglasses. Perhaps it's the way they give off an air of keeping away the paparazzi? 3.1 Phillip Lim, Christian Dior and Karen walker presented a more abstract form of the classic shape, whereas Gucci sticks to the classic oversized look.
Round, oval and long faces would look stunning in over-sized square sunglasses. This will balance out your facial proportions to perfection. These beauties are polarised too:
Heart or triangle ladies: balance out your facial proportions with bottom-heavy shapes. This style works great for Square shaped and oval too! Plus, the matte black frames are super on-trend!
My personal favorite Spring/Summer eye wear trend has to be the half rim. Defined by half a frame, these retro, quirky sunnies are summers must have! Go for a half-rim wayfarer a la 3.1 Phillip Lim or if you're feeling really daring, try Miu Miu's crazy red shades.
If you have a round face stick to rectangular half-rim shapes. These super-retro sunnies would look amazing on ladies with a long face shape too:
Valentino S/S 2015 Resort
Johnathan Saunders S/S 2015
Aviators aren't just for secret agents and pilots! These cute sunnies are classic and will go with any outfit. Valentino showcased a classic shape with a curved twist and Johnathan Saunders went for blue translucant leses.
Aviator sunglasses are best suited for ladies with square faces, as they balance your strong jawline. Oval shaped faces look great in this classic shape too. Go for coloured lenses like Johnathan Saunders with the sunnies below:
