Mirrored Blue Flash Aviator Sunglasses - Rayban
Iconic Rayban aviators are a good choice for those with heart shaped faces. Worn by stars such as Angelie Jolie, Kate Bosworth and fashion model Cara Delevingne, these classic sunglasses were designed in 1937 for US pilots. If you want an up-to-date twist on this look go for the mirrored lens, as seen on the 2015 catwalk by Balenciaga and Dior. Wear on the beach with waves in your hair and your best swimming cossie.
Chopard Sch 110S Sunglasses - Sclo
These beautiful butterfly shape oversized sunglasses by Swiss luxury retailer Chopard have a stylish mauve tint and gold plated detailing on the arms. Chopard is a family run company with a tradition of excellence so if you have chosen these you have chosen well. In a retro old school style, I can imagine a film star such as Audrey Hepburn or Marilyn Munroe wearing these lovely sunglasses on the Cannes red carpet. I would wear these whilst people watching in St Mark's Square, or chatting over a Bellini cocktail in Harry's Bar, Venice where the Bellini was invented.
Dior Cats Eyes
Dior Jupon 2 Cats Eye Sunglasses - Sunglasses Shop
Always design led Dior needs no introduction. These classic 'cats eyes' sunglasses are reminiscent of the 50's and 60's era and are great for those with oval faces. As worn by Grace Kelly, Dita Von Teese and Natalie Portman these feline, feminine sunglasses are 'tres chic'. If you want a slightly softer style go for the more flattering 80's version in a softer colour than black such as navy. The perfect accessory to your trip to the country in an open top car with a scarf in your hair.
Of course it's not all style over substance. Sun protection is vitally important too when choosing sunglasses, so pick a design from a brand that is known for their quality and UV protection as well as their cutting edge or classic design.
