Sizzling New Sunglass Trends

When it comes to this season’s big fashion trends, oversized sunglasses are huge. Here are some tips on finding supersized shades from sunwear stylists at Solstice Sunglass Boutique, a luxury sunglass specialty chain:

• If your face is oblong, look for frames with contrasting temples.

• If you have a diamond-shaped face, choose cat’s-eye, square or rimless frames.

• For a round-square face, choose rectangular or geometric frames.

• Frames with heavily accented color on the top half work best with a triangular face.

• If you have an oval face, almost any style will work.

Some of this season’s hottest styles are:

• Sunset Boulevard-Oversized plastic “Jackie O” shapes that provide the Hollywood starlet look or anything that is aviator inspired.

• MetalWorks-Metal is one of the hottest fashion accents and sunglasses with studs, grommets or chain links make a bold, flashy fashion statement.

• Pearl Essence-Any shade from brilliant white to subdued ivory is the perfect accent to a brightly colored ensemble.

• Charms and Jewels-These playfully elegant designer styles are accented with Swarovski crystals and/or charms and trinkets like buttons, hearts or butterflies.

• Signature Style-For personal flair, designer-inscribed sunglasses are in high demand.

• Cutting Edge-Peek-a-boo cut-out temple designs and laser engraved outlines make a bold, edgy, new fashion sunglass statement.
