Sunglasses have been worn for centuries, with the earliest recorded use dating back to ancient Rome. However, it was in the 20th century that they became a fashion accessory. Today, sunglasses are not just limited to one style or design. They come in various shapes, sizes, and colours, making it possible for everyone to find their perfect pair. From classic aviators to trendy cat-eye frames, there’s a style for every face shape and personal preference. So, let’s dive into the world of sunglasses and explore some unique styles from different parts of the globe.

Highlights

1. Aviator Sunglasses – USA

Originally designed for pilots in the 1930s, aviator sunglasses have become a timeless classic that is still popular today. The large teardrop-shaped lenses and thin metal frames give off a cool and masculine vibe. They are perfect for oval or square face shapes and provide excellent coverage from the sun.

2. Wayfarer Sunglasses – Italy

Invented by Ray-Ban in 1956, wayfarer sunglasses are one of the most iconic styles from Italy. They have a distinctive trapezoidal frame shape and thick temples that give off a retro and edgy look. Wayfarers suit round or heart-shaped faces and are available in various colours and patterns.

3. Cat-Eye Sunglasses – France

Inspired by the shape of a cat’s eye, these sunglasses were first popularized by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” Cat-eye frames are characterized by their upswept corners and thick rims that add a touch of femininity to any outfit. They look best on oval or heart-shaped faces.

4. Round Sunglasses – Germany

Round sunglasses have been around since the early 1900s and were popularized by John Lennon in the 1960s. These frames are for those who want to make a bold statement with their eyewear. They suit most face shapes but look especially good on square or heart-shaped faces.

5. Oversized Sunglasses – Brazil

In Brazil, bigger is better when it comes to sunglasses. Oversized frames have been a popular style in this South American country for decades. These sunglasses provide maximum coverage and are perfect for days spent on the beach or by the pool. They suit most face shapes but look especially chic on round or oval faces.
