Best sunglasses of 2020: the shades you need this year review

In addition to the normal stock of aviators and wayfarers you’d expect to be meeting the stores at the time of year, there are three additional noteworthy eyewear trends you must be aware of right now: namely that for oversize and chic and female, and that for futuristic wrap-around styles (epitomised by both Balenciaga and Prada’s recently published, hype-soaked range) — both very much 1990s- and 2000s-inspired. Whatever style you select — classic shapes are good too — it is not always easy picking a new set of sunglasses, mainly because of the sheer amount of choice on the industry. Pile that on top of the breadth of selection from lens strengths, colors and polarisation (glare protection) options and it can all become fairly baffling.
Another important matter to consider is face shape. If you want to wear your glasses more than it would be smart to think about what really looks good on you. In case you have a square foot, for example, you are going to benefit from the curves of rounder eyeglasses. Rounder faces? Opt for rectangular or square styles (wayfarers are a fantastic option). Here, to guide you through the jungle of competing eyewear brands is GQ’s Men’s Sunglasses roundup. Credit cards at the ready.
