During the summer, your sunglasses can be your savior from the sun while making you look cool & collected. Haven't you even seen someone who has just the perfect pair of sunglasses that just makes them look ten times better? While some sunglass shapes are tough for every face type, the following four classic shapes can work well for just about everyone. Time & time again the shapes of these four styles have proven to be classics. From stylish aviators to big, dark & oversized frames, these four picks are some must haves to add to your sunglasses collection. Also check out the many other styles at MrPorter.com for a wider variety of sunglasses.
The aviator has long been a classic staple for must-have sunglasses. Rocked by Tom Cruise to Robert Redford, the aviator is a favorite among many. While most rock the traditional Ray Ban style, switch it up by getting a modern incarnation of this classic frame, like these Gucci Bamboo Aviators.
Lets face it, sometimes you just need an oversized pair of sunglasses. They can hide anything from a long night to intense sun rays by the pool. These Tom Ford Ace Sunglasses are my personal favorite as their shape is unique & not too overbearing.
Just like the aviator, Persol the eponymous brand & frame, is a must-have by any fashionable guy. Made iconic by the king of cool, Steve McQueen, a pair of Persol's will definitely get everyones attention, especially these Steve McQueen Folding Acetate pair. These are a great pair of everyday sunglasses that are timeless & have a touch of cool.
Flat Top Frames
Frames with a flat top are the ubiquitous style that almost anyone can rock. The shape is just flattering to every face shape. Flat topped frames are almost always seen by rock & roll royalty as why I picked these Alexander McQueen Square Sunglasses. No one will want to mess with you with the cool accent on the side of the iconic McQueen skull
