Finding the best sunglasses to suit you is tricky and laden with trial-and-error. The good news, ladies, is that there are plenty of interesting sunglasses trends set to be big in 2021.
Maybe you’re seeking sunglasses that offer “drama”, or perhaps you prefer a classic and more reserved angular shape? Whichever frames take your fancy, it’s time to start thinking about shades. The spring/summer 2021 shows shone with bright styles. My faves are the most enormous – the bigger, the better.
Oversized Flat Tops
These are THE plasma screen-sized sunnies to be seen in this year.
