Sunglasses with the YES factor!

From not knowing what suits their face shape to being stuck in a style rut, our team find the solutions to their eye-wear angst this summer


‘Cat-eye frames are my usual go-to, because they’re the only style that I feel doesn’t make my face look rounder. The Mulberry 125319, £190 (non-prescription)*, £270 (prescription)*, are keepers, however – they’re so glam and make me feel super-confident.’

Kelly During, Advertising Manager, Health & Beauty/Parenting Club


‘My face is quite small, so most sunglasses swamp me. I’d love  to find some that work with my features. The Oasis 125048,  £50 (non-prescription)*, £130 (prescription)*, are the first  style in years that don’t make  me look like I’m a little girl  trying on my mum’s shades!’

Julia Martin, Associate Editor, Health & Beauty/Parenting Club


‘I usually choose a pair with metal arms, but they tend to get bent out of shape. I don’t think I’ll have that problem with the Ted Baker 125102, £110 (non prescription)*, £190 (prescription)*, though. I like the style and the tortoiseshell colour, and they look strong enough to last years.’

Freddie Faulkner, Advertising Account Manager, Health & Beauty



‘Instead of buying loads of cheap frames, this summer I want a pair that will last. These classic, but seriously stylish Prada 125073,
£250 (non-prescription)*, £330 (prescription)*, are an investment worth making, and I can see myself wearing them for years to come.’

Rachael Cowell, Account Manager, Health & Beauty



I’m into on-trend, statement sunnies, but I gravitate towards ones that are too big, which make me look like I’m in a remake of The Fly. But the Mulberry 125323, £190 (non-prescription)*, £270 (prescription)*, are cool. I never usually wear round styles or caramel-coloured frames, but I love these. And they haven’t swallowed my face!’

Danielle Hine, Features Director, Health & Beauty/Parenting Club



‘I’m drawn to classic, black shades, but I worry they make me look washed out. This sunny season,  I want to lighten things up. I love how the subtle tortoiseshell frames on the Longchamp 124015, £110 (non-prescription)*, £190 (prescription)*, lift my complexion.’

Charlotte Price, Chief Sub Editor, Parenting Club
