The Ultimate Sunglasses Guide

Summer may be nearly over, but that doesn’t mean we have to put our sunglasses away; thanks to Luru’s perfect weather. Over the years, we’ve seen different styles come and go, so we have rounded up the most popular kinds just for you!

On the left column (below) from top to bottom we have 1) Coloured 2) Tortoise/Printed 3) Wayfarer and 4) Reflective lenses.

On the right column (below) from top to bottom we have 1) Cat eye 2) Aviator 3) Oversized and 4) Round/retro.


Now that our favourites and famous styles have been established, let’s talk about face shapes. Just because there is a new sunnies (sunglasses) trend, doesn’t mean you’re going to look good (no offence). Why, you ask? Because they have to suit the shape of your face – duh!

So, this is also our guide on what should suit your face. The general ‘rule’ is that you should choose styles that are the opposite of your face shape. This is so true – we’ve actually experimented!


For all you round faces, go for something rectangular and possibly oversized to give you some angles and edges. If you have a heart-shaped face like Angelina Jolie, opt for a pair of aviators. Who would have thought the classic aviator looks downright ridiculous on some faces? Oval face shapes, try out the chic cat eye trend. Lastly, angular faces should go for retro/round sunglasses to soften your look.

We hope this guide helps you on your next shopping spree! xx
