Choosing the right pair of sunglasses can be tricky if you are not aware of a few do’s and don’ts. There are some factors to consider like your face’s shape and even the outfit that you wish to wear along with your sunglasses. Take it from the A-listers. Choosing the right sunglasses is not a walk in the park. Sometimes, it takes a team of stylists, optometrists, and fashion designers to perfect the look. But lucky for us, we only need to take inspiration from what they are already sporting. We then only need to do some mix and matching and wear our pick with confidence.
'Look' no further.
We have gone “star fashion police mode” and we have listed some of the best sunglasses to wear this year according to your favourite celebs!
1. Aviator Sunnies
Didn’t you know that this eyewear trend is actually inspired by the sunglasses worn by pilots from World War II? Yes, men’s most celebrated eyewear trend came from a not so fabulous past, but it was Hollywood who made it popular being seen in movies like Top Gun and many others that depicted men in uniform.
The trend soon reached other parts of the world and the rest as you say is history. Aviator sunglasses are now the best pick of most men as it suits just about any face shape. However, it is ideal for those who have oval, square, or heart-shaped faces.
