Summer is finally here, and we’re ready for it. The barbeques, beach days, and late-night bonfires are just around the corner, meaning it’s time to assemble your perfect summer outfit. From fun, patterned maxi dresses to your favorite, floral romper, there’s nothing quite like getting to soak in the sun in an outfit you love. So, if you’re anything like me, you know that nothing can make or break a look like sunglasses can.  But, finding the perfect sunglasses can be a massive hustle, especially if you don’t know what looks good on you. 

The singular biggest problem that causes sunglasses struggle comes from not knowing the shape of your face. Regardless of whether it’s oval, square, heart, or any of the other types, your face shape is the defining factor of what makes a pair of shades look great. So, to figure out what your face shape is, I recommend using lipstick or a marker (non-permeant) and literally tracing the shape of your face from forehead to chin on your bathroom mirror. From there, it’s so much easer to figure out what your actual face shape is, and what sunglasses will look best on you. 

For my heart-shaped faced people, there’s nothing quite like a cat eye pair of glasses to really accentuate your killer cheek bones, (and girl, I know you have them). World Eyewear has a pair of cat eye shades that literally have gold in them. Yes, actual gold. So, if you’re looking for a way to treat yourself for surviving the long, cold winter months, this fashion forward pair is for you. Just be careful that you don’t sit on them. Not to mention, World Eyewear has some killer shades for dudes too. They’re all over the internet, so check out their Instagram page to see some more of their shades.  

    If you’re not all about wire frames (or if you’re just a little too clumsy not to break them sometimes) BonLook is bringing all the sass and style you need in plastic. If you’re looking for something classic, glamorous, and ready for a night on the town, there’s nothing like these. They come in so many different colours, meaning that you’re never going to run out of options for unique, fun ways to style them. With stores all over Canada, they have so many more options to explore, for prices that aren’t going to break the bank.  

If you’re ready for your more adventurous side to break free this summer, MarsQuest is serving up all the style you need to make for a fashion forward summer. Perfect for anyone who can’t seem to keep a pair of sunglasses from breaking (they literally drove a car over these and they still worked), we love their anti-slip technology and creative styling. 

No matter what sort of shades you go for, as long as you stick true to your style, and wear something you feel good in this summer is guaranteed to be a hit. Happy shopping!
