Sunglasses are not only a fashion statement but a functional summer essential

UV rays can be extremely damaging if you don’t take proper precautions to protect your eyes. It’s essential to have a pair of sunglasses nearby, so you are prepared when you need them. Wearing sunglasses can help keep your eyes healthy while giving you a fun way to accessorise your outfit. There are many different types and styles of sunglasses you can choose from in-store and online at Arnotts.

Pairing sunglasses for different occasions

When choosing a new pair of sunglasses, it is important to consider what colours best suit you and will compliment your style. Trendy sunglasses can transform your outfit from casual to on-trend and stylish.

Casual Wear: When wearing a casual outfit, you have a lot of freedom when choosing what frames to wear. Opt for something cool like aviator styles. For a walk around town opt for some circular sunglasses. It’s casual after all, if you can’t wear what you want when it’s casual when can you? So be comfortable, be yourself and rock your everyday look with sunglasses from Ray-Ban

Formal wear: For a formal ensemble, choose between square, rectangle or round sunglasses. You might opt for bigger sunglasses, but keep the lenses straightforward and the frame basic in black. A classic pair of Michael Kors square sunglasses are great for any formal event.

Brunch: Channel your inner fashionista while having a laid-back brunch with the girls. Try cat-eye, dark sunglasses. If you want to make a strong fashion statement, the Prada Cat Eye sunglasses are the perfect choice.

Sportswear: Whether you're playing a round of golf or watching a rugby match sunglasses are important for a hot bright day. Larger sunglasses such as Dolce & Gabbana styles are popular as they are stylish and provide great protection from the sun.

Sunglasses for your face shape

Heart-shaped face: Heart-shaped faces generally have a wider broad forehead, defined high cheekbones and a pointed narrow chin. Cat-eye sunglasses, wayfarer styles and retro square frames generally work well. They pull focus towards the centre of the face, creating a more balanced look. Medium to thicker frame styles with dark colours work beautifully.

Oval-shaped face: Oval face shapes are generally rounded with soft curves and are proportionate from top to bottom. Any style of sunglasses will sit perfectly on oval faces. Aviator sunglasses particularly complement this face shape, adding depth and contouring due to their teardrop silhouette. Thin gold or silver metal frames add to the delicate softness of the face shape.

Round-shaped faces: Round faces have curves, a wider forehead and chin and fuller cheeks; they are proportional in width and length. It is best to stick to square, rectangle or wayfarer sunglasses to create depth and structure. The angular corners form soft contours and angles, with dark thick frames helping add some dimension to the face shape.

Square-shaped face: This face has a wide forehead, chin and cheekbones of a similar length and width. They also tend to have a more defined jawline and angular features with a strong natural contouring. Round or oval sunglasses will make the highly structured angles of a face shape appear more delicate. Square or rectangular silhouettes will accentuate the sharpness of your facial features.

Rectangle-shaped faces: This face has a narrow forehead, broad jawlines, wide cheekbones and a flat chin. Top-heavy frames like clubmaster sunglasses or aviators with a double nose bridge are an excellent choice for this style face. Cat eye sunglasses also are great to highlight cheekbones and draw attention to the eyes.
