This is a great option for women who enjoy wearing an iconic sun style, and yet there is plenty of room to experiment with these sunglasses – the elongated silhouette and pointed corners typical of a cat’s eye frame come in a whole host of renditions – some wholly classic and others more modern or avant-garde.

Oval frames – inspired by the 1990s trend - are back in fashion. Their retro appeal and understated elegance make them instantly attractive as a go-to style to add a touch of glam without trying too hard. The shape makes them comfortable and easy-to-wear – the sun coverage is really perfect, so choosing a pair is an absolute breeze!
