How to Style Your Trendiest Sunglasses

Choosing the right sunglasses for your face shape is only half the battle when it comes to rocking a great pair of sunnies. Once you decide which style looks best on your face, it’s time for the fun part: styling them. Cooler weather is right around the corner, so here are some of the best ways you can style aviators, cat eyes, round lens, vintage, and men’s sunglasses this fall. 

Styling Aviator Sunglasses

Womens aviator sunglasses flatter just about every face shape, so these are a good bet for everyday wear. These sunglasses feature large lenses and soft lines, so they match perfectly with casual outfits. A great outfit that you can throw on and go to class in is a flannel shirt, a pair of distressed skinny jeans, combat boots or suede booties, a beanie, a dainty necklace, and leave your hair down & wavy. Another outfit that you can try is an oversized cable knit sweater, dark wash skinny jeans, leopard print flats or loafers, and a simple necklace and studs. Look casually chic with your hair in a loose ponytail or braid, and this outfit is perfect for running errands around town.

Styling Cat Eye Sunglasses

Cat eyes sunglasses are the epitome of class, and due to their wide frames, look best on those with square-shaped faces. Maintain the retro vibe in your outfit by donning a classic, high-waisted midi skirt (either striped or polka dotted), a black crop top, statement earrings, a watch, and straighten your locks and leave them down. If you’re looking for the perfect girls’ night outfit, match your sunglasses with a black dress, a cognac belt, strappy heels, statement earrings, and pull your hair back into a low ponytail.

Styling Round Lens

Round lens sunglasses are classic, as demonstrated by The Beatles, and they go well with oval, heart, and square-shaped faces. Pair your sunglasses with classic looks, such as a button-down shirt under a v-neck sweater, a pair of leatherette leggings or black skinny jeans, suede booties, crystal studs, a statement ring, and your hair styled into a neat top knot. A casual, transitional outfit that you can try on for size is an army green vest layered over a striped t-shirt dress, some sandals or booties, a long necklace, and a few statement bracelets. Leave your hair down & use a curling wand to make some loose waves. 

Styling Vintage-Inspired Clubmaster Frames

Vintage clubmaster sunnies are universally adored, and they are some of the best sunglasses for round faces. With these women’s sunglasses, you can stick with the vintage feel and pair them with a collared Gingham dress, a leather jacket, tan oxfords or loafers, small hoop earrings, and you can either leave your hair down & straight or throw it into a messy bun. For a more modern take on these sunglasses, layer a black and white flannel shirt over a loose, black v-neck shirt, and add leatherette leggings, black almond-toe flats, a statement necklace, and wear your hair half-up or in a chic messy bun.

Styling Men's Sunglasses

Don’t worry men, we haven’t forgotten about you! We’ll show you how to style aviator sunglasses for men, round sunglasses for men, and wrap around sunglasses. Mens sunglasses can step up your suit game in the office and your casual style on the weekend. If aviators are your style, pair them with a v-neck sweater layered over a white button-up, a pair of dark wash jeans, boat shoes, and if it’s cold enough, you can even layer another open sweater on top. For some round sunglasses, don a button-up, black suit jacket and pants, pocket square, and brown leather shoes. Pair a polo or v-neck and a pair of jeans or khakis with your favorite wrap around sunglasses for a perfect casual look for a day at the golf course.
