We've found your new favourite sunglasses

Say farewell to skinny cat eye sunnies, there’s a new shape on the block.

Over the past 12 months there have been more trends in the world of sunglasses than ever before. From modern-day aviator to tinted lenses, we’ve seen it all – so what’s next?

Well, this season it's all about being big and bold.

“Thick frames and large lens sizes are all the craze, for our female customers in particular. For males, we’re seeing them find comfort in the traditional square frames and for the more daring kind, small circle frames are it,” Nathan Fisher, Director of Marketing for Maui Jim Sunglasses, says.

You’ve all had that friend (or been the person yourself) who says sunglasses just don’t suit them, but Nathan says it’s all about knowing what to look for to suit your face shape and size - here’s a handy guide to help you find the perfect pair.
