1. The Round Wire
The ideal match for oval and square face shapes, round wire frames are firmly in the style spotlight this season, with fashion influencers the world over opting to circle their eyes in thin gold, silver, pewter and black. Retro minimalism seems to have inspired the shape’s comeback, as our favourite designers pay homage to the classic 80’s style, whilst adding smooth contemporary detailing. You can don the timeless trend with frames from the likes of Oliver Peoples, Prada, Chloe and Dior.
2. Electric Geometric
If you’re looking to make the ultimate statement this summer, go geometric. This stand out SS18 trend forms the centre piece of luxurious collections from Prada and Alain Mikli this year, with bold acetate designs worthy of the Tate Modern! These shades give the wearer instant A-list glamour, making them the perfect addition to your summer holidays 2018, particularly if you have an oval or heart shaped face. Experience their effect on yourself by trying on these beauties…
3. The Feature Bridge
Face-width gold bars, high arching mirrors and inch-thick rainbows feature across the bridges of our edgiest designers’ SS18 sunglasses styles, so are a top trend for all face shapes. Tom Ford, Prada and Alain Mikli have got particularly creative with their shapes this season, pulling out all the stops to adorn masterpiece frames with eye-catching brow-lines. One thing’s for sure, the feature bridge is guaranteed to turn heads this summer…
4. The Cat Eye
Elegant and feminine, cat eye shades transform any summer outfit with Monroe-esque glamour. From sleek minimalist Ray Ban designs to all-out metal-studded Prada creations, the shape gives you the freedom to express your individual style, but always with beguiling charm. It’s the go-to style for those with heart or triangle face shapes this summer, so make sure to equip your eyewear wardrobe with a pair.
