Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie are two great celeb examples who gorgeously rock the oversized sunglass-style! On this, we're going to check out the most popular large sunglasses and help you select the best styles that suit your face shape.

Many associate big shades with bumble bee eyes, when in fact, you can find them in all kinds of chic styles - ranging from cool aviators to trendy wayfarers - classic square to on-trend round frames - so there is something for everyone.

Now before we dig into the wonderful world of big sunglasses, let's start take a look at some tips on how to select the best pair for you:

How to Select Big Sunglasses that Suit You

As much as big sunglasses are fabulous fashion accessories, it might drown your face. They're placed right on your face and it is pretty much the first thing people automatically notice about you.

They're fun for creating a fashion statement and achieving a trendy-glam style, but if you want to really pull off the look and not go overboard with looking like a little child wearing her mother's sunglasses - then it's super-important to select the right size (ranging from large, oversized to jumbos), color and not least frame shape that complement your face shape and personal style!

Another thing you should have in mind, is that oversized sunglasses make your face smaller in comparison. But the flip side is that they can help a wide face look slimmer.

Also known as "bumble bee eyes", these tapered classic Jackie O sunglasses look good on almost all face shapes.

They taper on the sides which make them ideal for anyone with sharp or wide cheekbones.

The style is classic and go with absolutely everything. Frames in black or tortoise are ideal for that vintage Jackie O look!

These bigger-scaled cool wayfarers are trendy and look best on wider face shapes. The wide brow bar also help disguise a wide forehead (Heart/Inverted Triangle). If you have a narrow forehead (Diamond) look for Wayfarer sunglasses with a not so wide but rather detailed brow bars to help add width to your upper face.



Round Large Sunglasses
