So, like most of my friends out there, I was a big fan of the Jackie O style over-sized black sunglasses for the longest time. I had multiple pairs in more or less the same style because I thought it suited my face cut. Then a couple of years back I decided to experiment (with another safe style)-K’s Aviators and I quite liked them on my face. So,then again I would alternate between these two styles because that’s what “suited” my face shape.
Not long before, when the bug of actual experimentation bit me, did I start trying new stuff for real! Like really random stuff-like breaking fashion rules stuff! And, I realized, there isn’t actually one type of sunglasses that suit you. Just about anything will look nice as long as you wear it with a smile on your face and loads of “devil-may-care” attitude. So, I’ve made a list of four fun pairs that are in vogue this season and I am sure you would love to wear them too.

1. Cat-Eye Sunglasses
Try them in both embellished and plain frames. They will lift up your face instantly.
Splurge @ D&G for USD 450/-
Save @ AND for Rs. 1199/-
2. Frameless Wrap Style Sunglasses
They are very androgynous in their approach and may take a lot of chutzpah from your end to wear them with confidence. I got mine in rose pink and they look more feminine than most other colors in the same style.
Splurge @ for Emporio Armani for USD 270
Save @ Aldo for Rs. 2000/-
3. John Lennon Style Round Sunglasses
I saw Deepika Padukone sport them during the IIFA Awards and I was instantly sold. Only thing, hers are Miu Miu and would have cost me my entire shopping budget for a long time, until I found this cheaper option at StyleFiesta. These are super stylish and brighten up your no-make up face instantly!
Splurge @ Miu Miu for Rs. 21000/-
Save @ Style Fiesta for Rs.1299/-
4. Super Reflective Aviators/Wayfarers
They are available in blue, green, orange-you name it! Almost everyone is sporting them be it Bollywood or regular people like us. Best part about them-they flatter almost everyone since the attention goes instantly to your face. Word of caution though- do not over accessorize when you sport this style since they are quite flashy themselves.
Splurge @ Ray Ban for Rs.7000/-
Save @ Chemistry for Rs. 799/-
Hope you found the post useful and atleast some of these styles will find their way into your closet. And did I say this before? Throw your Jackie Os already!
Stay Gorgeous xx
