Every summer I spend a few hours trying on sunglasses, praying and hoping that a pair will actually look good on me. Oh the problems of having a small face and a big nose… Last year I wrote a post about how to find sunglasses for small faces, and thankfully I scooped up a pair or two that are still in my rotation. If you’re ready for some summer sunglasses shopping, here a few of the sunglasses trends of 2014. Which one is your favorite?
Although I’m more of a silver girl myself, gold-trimmed sunglasses are everywhere this year. To me, a lot of these are reminiscent of the 1970’s, their groovy with their rose-tinted lenses and gold hardware. Gold sunglasses look best on those with a warmer complexion, so take that into consideration when purchasing.
Another sunglasses style that goes back a few decades is the cat-eye. I like a little bit of a cat-eye personally, since I can’t pull off the crazy ones. But if you have a larger face you can so pull them off, so go for it! There’s something a little sexy about a cat-eye shape (just like the trick with eyeliner).
Heart-shaped sunglasses are youthful, feminine and fun. And they always make me think of that line in the Lana Del Rey song, ” Baby put on heart shaped sunglasses, cause we gonna take a ride.” Anyway, the lovable shape makes this a trend that is here to stay.
I tend to stick to tortoiseshell colored sunglasses, but colored sunglasses are another trend this year. Your sunglasses don’t have to match every outfit you have- just think of how crazy that would be? Plus, being matchy-matchy is sometimes lame. I’m loving all the purples, blues and greens I’ve been seeing everywhere.
