Square frames on sunglasses have a run for their money with the rising trend of circle frames. Although they evoke high fashion of the sixties reminiscent of the oh so fabulous Twiggy, circle frames do not have the magic that square frames do when it comes to adjusting to any sort of facial shape. For most people, some sort of variation of the square frame will flatter their face. With that said, it is all about finding the exact size and color that will work best.
As for this Fashionista, she successfully paired some caramel colored sunglasses with a blue dress and simple beige flats. Facial wise, her straight across bangs lay perfectly across the top of the square frames. With these sunglasses especially, the color stands out on the Fashionista against her dark hair and her color choice of the dress. Since square frames are so popular, there have been loads of variations with frame color, lens color and even patterns on the frames. Although you can’t go wrong with some fierce black Ray-Bans, they also carry sunglasses with varying frame and lens colors. This Fashionista, being an east coast native, got her sunglasses from a store called “Alter” in the Greenpoint a neighborhood of Brooklyn. The frames are slightly thicker making them look a little more retro, which shows how one can still be creative within the realm of square frames!
All the different sunglasses styles are great, but square frames are something that every Fashionista should own. They go with almost every outfit, whether that’s casual or formal, and actually have utilitarian use of protecting your eyes whereas some sunglasses are beautiful but don’t do the job. Fully framed square glasses, as the ones this Fashionista rocked, also are a little more durable since the lenses are being more secured into place. Overall, they are just the sunglasses that everyone should have a pair of (or in my case multiple pairs).
