From classic aviators to bold cat-eye frames, here are 13 sunglasses for you take on summer with style. 

Summer is less than a month away, and many of us are already planning that much needed summer getaway. Whether you’re planning to visit the pristine blue waters of Maldives, the ultramodern city of Dubai, or take a cruise along the European canals,  there’s one thing you shouldn’t leave home without – a stylish pair of shades.

Aside from elevating your entire summer look, sunglasses protect your windows to the world from harmful UV rays (and allow you to subtly check out that hot guy/girl without looking creepy). From classic aviators to bold cat-eye sunnies, here are 13 sunglasses for you take on summer with style.

Oval face shapes go well with almost any kind of sunglasses. Our pick? The classic Ray Ban RB3545 | 9004/11 Top black on silver frame with grey gradient lens.

Add geometry to a round face shape with square frames and hard details. A fine choice - the Burberry top bar square frame sunglasses in mineral grey.

Balance the hard edges of a square face shape with round or oval lenses. Aviators like Tom Ford's Tom N.10 in black horn are the way to go.

Like square-shaped faces, diamond-shaped faces require round or oval curves to soften sharp facial features. We especially like the Fendi Air sunglasses in gold-finish metal, which adds a nice touch of retro.

Large, thick frames work well with an oblong face to add width to narrow features. Bold colours like this Gucci rectangular-frame optyl sunglasses in blue optyl also help to widen your face further.

Broaden the jawline of a heart face shape by wearing shades with bottom-heavy details. Take for example, the Giorgio Armani Frames of Life Sunglasses in bronze metal.

For Her

Since oval face shapes go well with various frame styles, why not upgrade your plain old sunnies and go for something with a little more colour, like the Michael Kors Chelsea sunglasses in plum.

Thick, bold and square frames help to balance out the curves of a round face shape. We notice that the tortoiseshell print is staying for the summer, so keep up the trend with this pair of Gucci square-frame optyl sunglasses in dark tortoiseshell.

As heart face shapes are more delicate around the chin, it's best to stay away from oversized sunglasses. Instead, opt for something like this pair of perfectly round Chanel sunglasses with 18-carat rose gold plated lenses to better complement your features.

Take the emphasis off the sharp edges of your jawline and temples with a round frame or aviators like the Vogue VO4060S in warm gradients that highlight playful summer rays.

Two-tone sunglasses are a great way to accentuate the features of a diamond face shape. This pair of Lapiz Sensible Luesey sunglasses with a metal top frame and clear nylon bottom will do just the trick.

To make an oblong face shape appear less elongated, try oversized or cat-eye frames. Frames like this Tory Burch oversized round sunglasses with green gradient lenses will mask the length of the face while drawing attention to its cool and unique green lenses.

Thanks to its edgier top corners and round bottom half, this sun-shaped frame goes well with most face shapes. The trendy double bridge of the Vogue VO5164S adds more sophistication to its chic spirit, making it ideal for the versatile woman on a summer escape.
