Sunglasses are our favourite summer accessory – there’s a style to suit everyone, you can spend a little or a lot, they protect our eyes and they add an instant cool factor to any outfit. Plus, they cover those eye bags when we haven’t quite managed to get our 8 hours!
If you’re on the market for a stylish new pair of sunnies, why not try something a bit more out of your comfort zone? The great thing about sunglasses are that you can dip your toes into the most outrageous of fashion trends, but with minimal risk.

See her picks in our edit below, along with our advice for finding the perfect frames to suit your face shape…
If you have a round face
Those with round faces will look fabulous in these retro Ray Ban sunglasses. The geometric shape adds angles to your face, and the pink lenses will turn heads.
The quirky geometric shape of these Emilio Pucci sunglasses will elongate and slim your face, offsetting your contours.
If you have an oval face
Do you have an oval face shape? You lucky thing – almost all styles suit you. Stay away from round shapes, though – instead, draw attention to your cheekbones with these gorgeous Emilio Pucci sunglasses. The cat’s eye frame makes them look fabulously vintage – perfect for a picnic!
If you want to add some serious glam factor to your look, opt for a statement pair of bejewelled Miu Miu sunnies. This cat’s eye shape draws the eyes upwards, complimenting high cheekbones.
The rectangular shape of these lilac Miu Miu’s will balance out the length of an oval face.
If you prefer a more classic look, these chic Pradas with beaded arms are for you!
If you have a heart face
Feeling fancy? Jazz up any outfit with these gorgeous Prada sunglasses from Sunglass Hut. The light-coloured frames are perfect for heart shaped faces. These will add instant glamour to even the most simple of outfits.
Heart shapers also look good in frames with thin temples like these Miu Mius, which have light lenses too making them the perfect pair for your shape.
If you have an oblong face
If your face is oblong shaped, you’ll look great in a pair of oversized sunnies. Look for styles with more depth than width for the perfect flattering glasses – these MCQ by Alexander McQueen ones will make a real statement.
Go big or go home! These Emporio Armani sunglasses will look great on oblong faces, plus the unique shape of the frame and subtle cat’s-eye makes a real statement. Wear with a simple outfit for maximum impact.
If you have a square face
Square faces will be balanced out by these funky red Infinity sunglasses. The round shape never goes out of style, and will look great paired with casual jeans and a T-shirt.
Try something a little bit different with these glasses from Emporio Armani. The rounded shape will look great on most face shapes, and we love the metallic lenses and detailing on both these pairs.
