Whatever your style, there is a wealth of choice available when it comes to sunglasses. Top female celebrities are often seen wearing the latest trends but most importantly, they always choose their sunnies to suit their individual style. Check out the popular celebrity styles below to help choose the perfect sunglasses for you.
Hippy style: Nicole Richie
Nicole Richie is a celebrity well-known for her indie, hippy style with floral headbands and flowing maxi dresses. She always chooses oversized sunnies with bold acetate frames. For this style, choose a pair of round sunglasses with a pretty dusty pink frame and rose-tinted glasses. These create a great feminine look for everyday wear in the summer. Wear these to the beach with a floral maxi dress and tousled beach hair.
The Diva: kim kardashian
Kim Kardashian is always in the spotlight. Despite a fairly minor part in US reality show Keeping up with the Kardashians, she has become a regular on the front pages of magazines and on the red carpet thanks to her bold, outlandish style. Never one to shy away from the paparazzi, Kim chooses oversized dark sunglasses in unusual designs to draw attention. For example, her memorable visor-shaped sunglasses feature very dark tinted lenses with a simple dark frame. For this style, the key is to keep hair and make up looking fresh and neat and dress in smart, feminine clothes.
Outrageous fashionista: lady gaga
Lady Gaga is perhaps the ultimate celebrity when it comes to bizarre, outrageous outfits. From her dresses made of raw meat to her platform shoes without heels, she is rarely seen in anything ordinary. The same applies to her sunglasses. She often favours bug-eye or visor sunglasses designed to make an impact, rather than look stylish. Fashion trends are ignored as she follows her own individual sense of style. For this look, the key is to source sunglasses with wacky designs, such as Jeremy Scott's Mickey Mouse sunglasses.
The posh totty: kate middleton
As the most popular young royal of the decade, Kate Middleton has won the public's hearts with her classic, elegant style. For this look, choose simple, smart rectangular frames with a black or tortoise frame. Kate steers clear of any bold designer logos and instead keeps the detailing to a minimum. Pair with a smart blazer and skinny jeans for a great daytime look.
Glamour puss: Eva Mendes
Eva Mendes is currently the arm-candy of Hollywood heartthrob, Ryan Gosling, and it's no surprise as her great style makes her a heartthrob in her own right. Her style consists of figure-hugging dresses worn with long wavy hair. Her sunglasses are normally oversized with brown tinted lenses to flatter her olive complexion. She often chooses coloured frames for a splash of colour but if you're not feeling bold enough for this, simple black acetate frames would suffice.
So when you next shop for a new pair of sunglasses, first consider how these will suit your individual style for a great new look for the long summer days.
