Sunglasses are a trend that everyone can partake in. Unlike to super tight leather pants and see-through crop tops, sunglasses look good on any body type and facial structure. Whether you love the 1950s look of the cat eye lens or the ever-popular aviator, there are so many shapes, styles and colors to choose from.

This Fashionista wears the Wayfarer folding Ray-Ban with black skinny jeans, lace-up boots and gray peacoat. The Ray-Ban brand is a classic that’s been around since the late 1930s. They’re best known for their aviator and Wayfarer styles which have become easily the most popular type of sunglasses. Both styles come in a variety of sizes and slightly different shapes to cater to various facial structure. If you’re looking for a simple, pair of sunglasses that will compliment your everyday outfits, these styles are the perfect choice. Her tortoise sunglasses work well with any outfit due to their neutral brown speckled color. This Fashionista does a great job with keeping it simple with various neutral tones, making her glasses easily blend in well with the rest of her look.

For those who like to emulate the bolder trends seen on the runway, over-sized and brightly colored shades are the way to go. Square shaped faces look the best with a large cat eye or circle lens because of the contrast between facial structure and lens shape. For more circular faces, try to pick out sunglasses that are more angular, again with the idea in mind of contrasting shapes. Pick out a fun bright color or pattern to make your glasses the central part of your outfit. Red, floral or even metallic can make an awesome accessory piece to spice up that winter wardrobe.

Sunglasses are a necessary part of everyone’s wardrobe. Not only are they imperative for those sunny days, but they also help add a little something interesting to a seemingly boring outfit. You don’t have to be super slim to wear this trend, but keep it shady with an awesome pair of sunglasses this season!
