DRESSING ON THE SIDE: Made With the Shades

In 1983, Corey Hart’s “I Wear My Sunglasses at Night” was a big hit. Though most 80s symbols – like NYC’s The Palladium, Danceteria, Limelight – are now nothing more than snapshots in Madonna’s glove box, one 80s trend lasted, sunglasses — morning, noon, and night.

a18 framesIn 1983, Corey Hart’s “I Wear My Sunglasses at Night” was a big hit. Though most 80s symbols – like NYC’s The Palladium, Danceteria, Limelight – are now nothing more than snapshots in Madonna’s glove box, one 80s trend lasted, sunglasses — morning, noon, and night. 

 

Sunglasses are expressive, fashionable, quirky, and functional all at once. I own two shopping bags’ full. Think about collecting a few styles to hide behind to suit your every mood and the shape of your face. 

 

Oval

 

You can wear anything. Experiment with shapes. Try something trendy, more edgy. A rectangle or butterfly-shaped lens, even the Elvis Costello horn-rimmed will work. Cat-eye frames will accentuate your high cheekbones.

 

Round

 

Try a more angled look. Square and rectangular-shaped frames will sharpen your features and add definition. A horizontal-shaped lens will make a round face look longer and slimmer.

 

Heart-Shaped

 

A butterfly or cat-eye will work. Frames with subtle metals or a light-color or translucent plastic are a good choice. A lens that is wider at the bottom, i.e., aviator, helps offset a narrow chin.

 

Angular

 

Add curves to your look with round frames. Cat-eye and aviator work for you. Oval frames will add length to your face.

 

The Latest Trends

 

Light and Girly

 

Soft, translucent colors and feminine touches like floral frames. Because girls just want to have fun, try one of the glam, gold-flecked translucent styles.

 

Retro  

 

They either look Gatsby 20s or Beatles 60s. Focal point: the round frame. Note: if you have a round face, the true John Lennons won’t work for you.

 

Bold and Colorful

 

Frames in primary colors, purple, and neon green. Top pick: ombre lenses.

 

Earthy

 

Brown, tortoise, sand colors. Make these OMG-worthy by finding them in an interesting shape, like a modified cat-eye or another favorite retro style.
