Sunglasses are a must-have accessory on a sunny day. Not only do they protect your eyes from harmful ultra-violet rays, but they also help you to look good when you go outdoors. But with so many different styles of sunglasses to choose from, it can be a tough job picking a style that suits your personal look. And with fashions coming and going, the last thing you need is to be behind the times and a fashion has-been.
This is why timeless sunglasses styles are really the top all-round choice for fashion conscious individuals. A timeless pair of sunglasses won’t go out of vogue within a year. Instead you can continue wearing them with whatever outfit you choose, safe in the knowledge that you are still looking good. So what are the most timeless sunglasses styles available in the shops today?
Oversized frames are the celebrity go-to look when the paparazzi are lining up outside their front door. Oversized frames hide a multitude of sins, from eye wrinkles to a grey complexion after a big night out. Your super-sized frames will never go out of fashion as long as you pick a style that suits your face shape, so keep a pair handy and pull them on the next time you need to glam up your look and pretend to be famous.
If you want to look like Tom Cruise or Kelly McGillis in Top Gun, aviators are the ultimate look. This style of sunglasses is immensely flattering, no matter what face shape you are. They go with any outfit and come in a wide range of different colours and shapes. Really you can’t go wrong with a pair of Ray Ban aviators, but even if you are shopping on a super low budget, there are lots of aviator sunglasses to choose from.
Wrap-around styles are not just a timeless classic, especially for sporty types – they are also a very practical style with extra UV protection for the wearer. Because wrap-around sunglasses hug the face closely and tend to be wider at the temples, they block more of the sun. This style of sunglasses is perfect for anyone who loves to be physically active outdoors, and is a smart choice for cyclists and runners.
Retro styles such as cat eye sunglasses are timeless and never go out of fashion. Wear a retro style with retro garments, or rock a super modern look with some skinny jeans and a pair of cat eye sun shades. You will enjoy the ‘wow’ factor and lots of ‘likes’ on Instagram and Facebook.
Sometimes life is too short to own two pairs of glasses: one for dull days and a pair of sunnies for when the sun is shining. Fortunately lazy types don’t have to worry. Clip-ons are perfect for anyone who needs an instant pair of sunglasses. Simply clip them on to your favourite glasses and you have instant shade.
With sunglasses, you get what you pay for, so stay away from cheap shades that don’t protect your eyes from the sun.
