How to Choose Oversized Sunglasses for Men & Women
Fitting nearly all face shapes, oversized sunglasses come in more than one design. Oversized frames have set a new fashion statement in 2020 by adding a touch of elegance and sophistication to any look.
The oversized sunglasses trend started in the 1960s, brought to the front and center of trending fashion by popular culture icons. One infamous oversized round style was even dubbed after first lady Jackie Kennedy, also known as the “Jackie O. Style,” and stands as an inspiration for Randolph’s premium Fusion Elinor oversized square sunglass style.
We respect where we came from in 1973 and see where we’re going today. We’ve shaped our eyewear collection for the individualist, the singular, and the uncommon with our experience and original handcrafted process.
Are Oversized Sunglasses In Style?
Yes, and for more than one reason. Oversized sunglasses are trending in fashion styles worldwide and worn by men and women seeking to express their unique style with classic eyewear styles. Oversized sunglasses also offer the most protection from the sun, blocking excessive glares throughout the day and protecting your eyes from UVA/UVB rays.
Choosing Oversized Sunglasses
Choosing oversized sunglasses starts with assessing the frame designs and style.
Oversized square sunglasses often feature larger lenses than round, but how big is too big? You want the glasses to rest on your face, but should not touch your cheeks when relaxing or smiling.
Here’s a checklist of what to keep in mind when choosing your style of oversized sunglasses:
- No Touching of Cheeks - the pair should never touch your cheeks and always rests comfortably on your face, do the smile test when you can!
- In line with Eyebrows - your oversized sunglasses should never completely cover your eyebrows. We suggest finding a pair that fits in line with your eyebrows for the best look.
- Frame Size - try to identify your face shape, and you should never feel as if your glasses are weighing you down.
