You Said: Yes to Oversized Sunglasses

June 21st, 2010


jodi-oversized-sunglasses_062010We asked: Would you wear Oversized Sunglasses?

You said:  Yes to Oversized Sunglasses, with a 75% to 25% vote.

Style tip? Oversized sunglasses are a Hollywood classic - they give you an air of mystery.  And they’re excellent at protecting your eyes, to boot!  We appreciate their mix of fashion and function - and the sense of drama they add to your look.  How do you find the right pair of oversized sunglasses for your face?  The key to getting this look right is to contrast your face shape with the shape of your glasses.  If you have a round race, look for glasses with an angular shape.  And conversely, if you have a more angular face, you’ll do best with glasses with a more rounded shape.

Next question: The Maxi Dress, a favorite silhouette in the 1970s, made its way back into fashion in 2009 - but it seems to have enough staying power to last through 2010.  But this floor-length dress silhouette isn’t for everybody, and it can be especially overwhelming on shorter women. What do you think?  Tell us, would you wear the maxi dress?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    Yes, I personally think oversized sunglasses on women is quite sexy.

    What about for men? Any solid choices this summer? Oversized or otherwise?

    Hi Gary,

    For men, you can’t go wrong with the Wayfarers or classic aviators. Would recommend against oversized sunglasses on men.

    Stay tuned for more menswear picks – am working on the What to Wear June guide, which will be published on Wednesday!

    I’m not into the oversized sunglasses. I know they are a retro throwback, but I see too many women wearing sunglasses that are bigger than their heads. At least choose a pair that is somewhat proportional to your face.
