There are certain timeless truths when it comes to men’s eyewear. Aviators almost always look cool (think Joe Biden, Tom Cruise in Top Gun), wayfarers suit almost any outfit and situation.
Lately, though, oversized sunnies for men have been growing in popularity, as well as the wrap-around style glasses that were adored in the early 2000s (remember The Matrix and it’s fashion choices? It’s back, baby)
As you’ll no doubt be aware, though, not every pair of glasses suits every face, and it can be a bit woeful to wear a pair of sunglasses expecting to look like Don Draper but ending up closer to Simon Cowell. The best way forward is to take into consideration your face shape.
Rounder faces tend to benefit from squarer styles, such as wayfarers or clubmasters, which can help to harden your features somewhat.
Conversely, as you might expect, square faces will soften and be accentuated by rounder frames.
If you have a heart-shaped or triangular face, aviators are a safe bet.
Here’s the top men’s designs for the summer season 2021.
