Best known as the shades worn by legendry Beatles member and solo artist John Lennon, oval sunglasses give the wearer an air of intellectual sophistication, making you look braining in any situation, even if you’re passed out on the beach drooling onto your towel.
What the oval shape of the rim does is to accentuate ones own natural features, it compliments the inherent shape of the eye and draws peoples attention to it. These are also great for people with high and prominent cheekbones as the rims run along their contours, again drawing attention to this proud and beautiful feature.
For those after oval sunglasses so they can look stylish on the beach then we recommend the Maui Jim Beachwood, made by a company who itself was born on the beaches of Hawaii. The minimal rim design really helps to accentuate the roundness of the rims, that sit invisibly on the nose via transparent nose grips.
For those after a bit more colour in their frame, have a look at the rootbeer coloured Bolle Serpent with matching lenses and wide arching arms that compliment the curves of the frame.
For those looking for serious oval protection then we have the Cebe Basecamp Small, which as the name might suggest are designed for use in wintery conditions. The leather side shields and nose brace are there to prevent debris like snow from getting inside the sunglass and irritating the eye, they are even fog proof to prevent fogging that can occur when sweaty faces meet cold climates.
We haven’t forgotten junior either with our oval shaped children’s sunglasses, the Bolle Breeze Junior in fashionable tortoise shell are bold and round for that pop star chic look and for younger children we have the Cebe 1977 Junior, that have a cool wrap around shape and neck strap to stop them getting lost.
