One of the biggest themes in eyewear in recent seasons has been geometrics.
From retro and oversized to clean, minimalistic lines and futuristic contours, the trend has manifested itself in many different forms.
Geometrics is all about celebrating the simplicity of shapes and the unique architecture of lenses, as well as understanding different ways to properly frame the face.
Finding the right shaped glasses can transform your look, balance your facial features, and even give a slimming effect in some cases.
For SS17, one of the most talked about styles is the square frame. If you have a round, diamond or oval face shape – or perhaps even a heart shaped or triangular shaped face – then square frames suit & flatter your features.
Angular lines will help frame your face in the right way whilst enhancing your cheekbones and giving your face a complete lift.
This season, square frames are taking centre stage. So its time to get shopping! Here are some of the best styles to try in 2017.
Marc Jacobs MJ 501/S
Go retro with these stylish square frames from Marc Jacobs. The ultra-thick plastic rim is an ode to the 1960s, and nude colour is a timeless choice.
Prada PR 30RS
If you want a chic and understated way to play around with geometrics this season, try muted tones and low-shine materials such as a wood finish.
On trend and easy to style with just about anything in your wardrobe. Mixed with dark metal, these wooden sunglasses have a slight industrial look to them. Which is just incredibly hipster.
Dolce & Gabbana DG4263
To rock a celebrity vibe, go for super sized frames like these sunglasses from Dolce & Gabbana.
All black is ultra sophisticated and the addition of the gold D&G detailing gives these frames a high end finish. These glasses are the perfect summer accessory for a touch of instant glam.
JIMMY CHOO JEN/S
Get festival ready with these super chic Jimmy Choo sunglasses. Designed with a square silhouette, heavy bridge and thick temples, these frames are a bold addition to your eyewear collection. The transparent look is super trendy and will add a contemporary twist to any outfit.
MICHAEL KORS HARBOR MIST
A classically beautiful frame from Michael Kors. The Harbor Mist sunglasses are stylish, feminine and elegant. Oversized and deep set lenses, timeless colours for versatility, and brown lenses add a polished finish to your summer wardrobe. The perfect pair of holiday sunglasses for round or oval face shapes.
Miu Miu MU 02RS
These Miu Miu sunglasses have a slightly more rectangular lens, meaning that they are suitable for a wider range of face shapes, including heart and triangular. A reversed lens and frame front add a bit of fun and avant-garde charm to your accessory collection.
Hook LDN HK009 GENESIS
Fab sunglasses for anyone who’s addicted to wayfarer style frames. These shades have a similar shape – just super sized – and the extra thick rim will really make you stand out in the crowd. A great choice for festivals. Think polar bear chic.

Prints and patterns are a big deal in SS17. Monochrome designs such as gingham or dogs tooth are seriously hot, making these Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses a must-have item. Inject some patterned prettiness into your eyewear!
