It’s all about oversized at the moment. Ironically exaggerated clothes, boxy fits and big chunky sneakers. All trends that don’t look to be slowing down any time soon. It’s enjoyable to play with proportions and shapes but sometimes it can feel a little cartoonish. Fashion over style, which for some, might not work so well. A good way to play with proportion and exaggeration without being a victim of fashions is to consider oversized sunglasses.


Sunglasses are an essential accessory that you should make a habit out of carrying with you. Sunglasses aren’t just for summer. They’re essential for reducing glare, keeping your eyes healthy and also, most importantly, for looking good. The jump to an oversized pair, be it an aviator or a Matrix-inspired square frame is minimal, yet the results can be statement-level.

Whereas chunky sneakers and boxier fits can often infantilise, oversized sunglasses are a bold statement that often carry often carry a sense of professionalism and confidence. They can punctuate particular face shapes and also allow for a pop of colour. Here’s a rundown of our favourite oversized shades.
