Easily add a pop of colour to your outfits with tinted lenses. Or take it up a notch and get tinted reflective lenses, like Gigi Hadid, that can double as mini mirrors for those who like to constantly check their hair.

Reminiscent of the 3D glasses we receive at movie theatres, the oversized square-shape sunglass Gwen Stefani wears is perfect for those with an oblong or oval face shape. The chunky glasses balance out a long and narrow face.

The Mother Monster brings back a little of the ‘80s with thick geometric frames. For those with small faces, try an equally crazy pair in a smaller size to not overwhelm your face.

Cat-eye glasses suit plenty of face shapes as they come in a lot of different variations. An elongated frame will balance out a long oblong face while cat-eye shades with rounder frames with soften a square shaped face.

Besides traditional frame designs, channel your inner Solange Knowles (aka Beyoncé’s younger sister) and stand out in some quirky shades. Revé’s stylish oversized sunnies come with detachable unicorn-horn, panda or cat ear designs. All the fun with zero commitment, we like.
