Let’s look at some sunglasses

12

I’m super light sensitive and wear sunglasses year-round, but I know that for most of you they are an exclusively warm weather thing, so I thought maybe I’d rustle some up. I love a big movie star-style set of frames like these.

And I’m forever fond of the Ray Ban Clubmaster—so timeless and super-cool at the same time.

This rounded square frame is nice and big, which is ideal for morning dog-walk-and-coffee-runs because it covers up so much of my morning face.

These are from Caddis, so you can order them as readers, which is handy.

I like the grey tortoise pattern here because it’s both statement-y and unexpected.

These aviators are just so classic and always hip.

I like the light brown here, as well as the updated Wayfarer-esque shape.

And I dig the fun purple lenses here.

A hip hexagonal shape that flatters faces that don’t necessarily look great in aviators.

    Such a great post! I love sunglasses and find that I have a good shaped face and head for a lot of styles, thankfully. I have a grey tortoise pair that I got from Anthro a few years ago and I love them. The ones you’ve shown look way more expensive than they are, too! Lately, my current go-to sunnies are from Shuron which have been made in the US since the 1865. Some of their styles are so amusingly retro that it’s worth taking a look.

    All year round, any time the sun shines. I have to say, all I have to do to morph from 65-year old gray haired lady to cool, hip, tough, arty elder is put on my Wayfarers;)

    I wear sunglasses even when it’s cloudy and I wear sunglasses with light brown lenses indoors under poor artificial light (hello airports). Ray Bans are my favorite because they make shapes to fit tiny heads like mine and I love the shapes you show here, Kim. Added bonus: sunglasses supposedly help protect against macular degeneration

    If you have not tried Goodr yet – they are super fun, super affordable ($35/pair), and great to ear for working out or hiking.

    I love my Caddis readers but they’re heavy and leave a dent on the bridge of my nose. There’s really now way to add pads or anything to them, either.

    Love anything Karen Walker and I need rounded frames for my square face.

    I wear them all year round but I thought I was in the majority.

    Those Tory Burch ones are my ideal. Unfortunately, they’d look ridiculous on my small face, but I LOVE big sunglasses.

      I have a small face but go all Olson twin(s)/Jackie O with sunglasses – the bigger the better in my (shaded) eyes. My current big-ass pair is from WooW.

    I have those Ray Ban hexagons and I adore them. Now if I could just find the exact pair Audrey Hepburn wears in Breakfast at Tiffany,

    I am currently in love with Krewe sunglasses although they are very pricey . St Louis is my latest obsession. Thinking about having my Rx put into them. My small Wayfarers are my go to for sun and regular glasses.
