Popular Summer Styles For Men
Other than the summer trends for men that include denim, the nautical look, ethnic and safari inspiration and contrast sleeves, men’s fashion has also extended to different types of sunglasses.
There is such a wide range of styles to choose from it is difficult to say which would suit you, but if you know what you like, have an idea about which style would suit your trends and also your face shape then there are plenty of picks for you to sink your teeth into.
Wayfarers – Wayfarers are amongst the most popular sunglasses styles of this year, and in fact, of the last few years! Associated with 1980s fashion, these angular shades have made a strong comeback over the past few years and they look like they are here to stay. If you like the wayfarer style but can’t afford the expensive Ray Ban or Alexander McQueen there are plenty of cheaper versions on the market. Look for color frames and lenses that you are happy with and you will be set for the summer.
Aviators – Made famous by Top Gun, men’s polarized sunglasses with aviator frames are one of the hottest styles for this summer in the men’s collection. These look great and are ideal for anyone who likes lightweight shades. They also suit oval and diamond face shapes as they balance out angular cheekbones. Make sure that if you do pick this style to accessorize your look, that you opt for a sturdy case as well so that you don’t squash them in your pocket!
Retro – The round framed retro look is in this summer and is being made popular by celebs such as Johnny Depp. A sophisticated and super cool look, frames made with the tortoiseshell pattern are great for achieving a really relaxed fashion statement that you will love.
Popular Summer Styles For Women
When it comes to fashion in general, women have a much wider range of styles and fashions to choose from so it is no surprise that the range of sunglasses styles that are around for women are so different from the more masculine designs.
Cat Eye – Rihanna, Katy Perry and Natalie Portman have all been spotted wearing this seasons’ hottest sunglasses trend – the cat eye frame. A simple and chic shape, they can add a touch of class to any outfit, and if you can’t afford the Dior ones, cheaper versions are available elsewhere.
Aviator – Not just a masculine style of frame, the aviators can be really flattering on a long face. The visibility when wearing this style is great, and there neutral colored metal frames means that you can wear them with almost any kind of outfit.
Square Frame – The square frame is a fashion statement, and is just as popular as the large round frame sunglasses that are currently hitting the stores. Victoria Beckham and YSL have made these over sized shades amazingly popular with “fashionistas” across the globe, and they are a great style to wear with any outfit for an extra statement accessory.
Retro Future – You know that Harry Potter chic look that all the hipsters are just loving at the moment? Yeah that’s the retro future frame that will be around for a long time. Usually made out of acrylic and with a tortoiseshell pattern, these are a neutral style which will suit people with triangular or square faces as they will soften your angular face shape.
Colored Frames – Finally, some of the most popular shades for this summer are those with colored or patterned frames. Florals, stripes, polka dots and various other patterns are just some of the designs you can find in stores at the moment, and they are the ultimate accessory for brightening up a dull outfit. The great thing about these is that even if they are bright pink and you are wearing a green summer dress, it doesn’t matter – the more color and design, the more you will stand out from the crowd!
