Sunglasses: Classic or trendy?
The face is the first thing we see on other people so the choice of sunglasses can be crucial in deciding on the kind of image we want to present to other people as most people will make up their mind about you almost immediately (note: never judge a book by it’s cover).
It is really important that you know what kind of sunglasses suit your face before you buy them. One pair of sunglasses may look good on your mates face, but horrible on yours, that’s because we all have different shaped heads. With that being said, I generally categorise sunglasses as either ‘classic’ or ‘trendy’ (note: it is definitely possible to get a mix of both).
The classic sunglasses are your Rayban wayfarer and aviator and other similar shapes. These have been around for decades and are popular for a reason, they look great without being too out of the normal. We have some examples here:
The newer trend is wearing more rounded sunglasses (and considered a step further would be to have reflective lenses). These range from oval shapes to complete circles and give off a hippie vibe that fits in extremely well with the current hipster culture. You can get some more conservative round sunglasses all the way to completely round and crazy sunglasses. Here are some examples of the more rounded, trendy styles:
It all comes down to what you feel comfortable wearing and what looks on your face. The best thing to do is go into a big sunglasses store and try on a range of brands and frames and get a feel for what you like.
