Celeb Style: Johnny Depp at the Grammy Awards

As per usual, Johnny Depp looked pretty great at last night’s Grammy Awards. But it’s not just his long locks and handsomely disheveled outfit we’re looking at, it’s his great designer sunglasses! Mr. Depp is always a source of eyewear envy, from his small, circular glasses he wears on a regular basis to the cool shades he dons on the red carpet. Never one to choose something ordinary, the actor always goes with a frame that makes a statement, and below, he wears a pair of traditional aviators with lenses that are anything but.

We love the cool slate blue color of the lenses, adding to the retro look of his outfit. Rather than the typical teardrop-shaped lenses of aviator sunglasses, Depp opted for more of a rectangular silhouette. The narrow frame flatters his triangular face, adding a little width to the eye area for a more balanced appearance. Because that’s what you’re looking for when trying to find the perfect pair of sunglasses, a great balance so no one area of you face is more overwhelmed than another.

Top Aviator Sunglasses for 2013

Aviator sunglasses usually bring us thoughts of the summer, sitting in the sun, maybe on a beach or boat, enjoying the warm breeze and soaking in the rays. But the truth is, sunglasses are needed all year round, especially in the winter where fresh snow reflects up to 80 percent of sunlight. Thus, our favorite iconic silhouette is a perennial necessity, and today we present to you our most popular sunglasses in the aviator style to help you select the perfect frame for 2013!

What’s One Must-Have Winter Accessory?

Not only do you need to shield your eyes from the sun’s rays, but from snow, rain, and any other form of precipitation that can impair your vision, so it’s best to find a larger frame that wraps around your head and keeps your eyes safe from harm.

Maui Jim Nine Palms H255 sunglasses

Maui Jim Nine Palms H255 sunglasses are a good place to start. This unisex style is rectangular and wide enough to cover most of your eye area from top to bottom, with the wide arms protecting you further.

Frame Yourself: Heart-shaped Faces

This week in Frame Yourself, we’re styling heart-shaped faces. Some of the most beautiful female celebrities in the world have this silhouette, which can be flattered with an expertly chosen pair of designer eyeglasses. Hearts typically feature a broad forehead, structured cheekbones, and a small chin that come together to form a “lovely” shape! Carrie Underwood (seen here) is an excellent example, as are Jennifer Love Hewitt, Reese Witherspoon, and Dakota Fanning.

Lafont Eames eyeglasses

In this photo, Jennifer Love Hewitt knows that bottom-heavy frames are the best for a heart-shaped face. Because the rims go lower than a typical pair of glasses, this larger style adds some width to the latter portion of her face. For a similar style to the one Love is wearing, try on a pair of Lafont Eames eyeglasses from the Issy & La collection.

Mosley Tribes Aviatrix sunglasses

Here is a shot of Reese Witherspoon in Mosley Tribes Aviatrix sunglasses in gold with polarized lenses. Shorter styles with rounded accents flatter heart-shaped faces by softening the look of a broad forehead and also helps create balance. This style comes in numerous colors and lens types, including gold and silver with polarized, mirror, or rosewood lenses.

Giorgio Armani 823 eyeglasses

Dakota Fanning is all grown up, and so is her style. Her eyeglasses are similar to Giorgio Armani 823 eyeglasses, which are round and retro, offering the same broadening illusion as the frames on Jennifer Love Hewitt. This style also features silver accents on each corner and the brand’s signature logo on the temples.


Frame Yourself: Square Faces

This week in our series on how to choose the perfect designer glasses for your face shape, we’ll be focusing on square faces. Those with this silhouette typically have a strong jawline and forehead of equal width with a square chin. Some celebrities with this shape include Demi Moore, Jessica Simpson, and Ryan Seacrest.

Beausoleil 012 Eyeglasses

Beausoleil 012 eyeglasses are a great place to start. Round and oval styles help balance the sharper angles of your face, which softens your overall look. This style has an arched silhouette that will help you achieve the proper balance. Steer clear of more geometric styles, which contribute more angles to an already angular face. The 012 is less overwhelming a look, and is available in the above brown, as well as clear, and a subtly patterned brown and black.

LINDBERG Air Titanium Rim Perry

It’s also best to avoid bottom-set temples, as it draws the eye down and brings more attention to the chin. We want to achieve equilibrium, and his can be done by choosing designer glasses with center-set temples, like the above LINDBERG Air Titanium Rim Perry eyeglasses. The location of the temples keeps the details central. Perry is an aviator-style frame with a slim design and double bridge.

Mosley Tribes Dorset sunglasses

As for sunglasses, try out a butterfly shape – this silhouette starts small in the center and flares outward towards the corners at equal lengths on the top and bottom. A great example is the above Mosley Tribes Dorset sunglasses. This is a butterfly-shaped aviator frame with cool blue mirror lenses. Upswept styles draw the eye upwards, but since your square face is more proportioned, the additional bottom flare keeps everything in line.

Get Ready for Summer With Mirrored Lens Sunglasses

If you’re gearing up for summer and looking for the perfect pair of aviator sunglasses, consider purchasing a pair with mirrored lenses. Not only do these shades offer the ultimate optical precision and protection, but the full mirror treatment gives you the utmost privacy, as it is virtually impossible to see your eyes from the other side.

Mosley Tribes Dorset mirror sunglasses

Mosley Tribes Dorset sunglasses are a great unisex pair. These designer sunglasses are butterfly shaped to flatter square faces, as its angles help balance out wider facial features. If you’re opting for these mirrored lenses, an anti-reflective treatment on the inner surface is recommended to reduce glare and provide the best sight.

CHANEL 4179 sunglasses are another great option. These frames feature a classic aviator shape, with flat metal arms that are embellished with the brand’s signature logo. The mirror layer on the lenses also helps to avoid scratches, such as when you clean them without a microfiber cloth.

Ray Ban Large Metal Aviator RB3025 mirror sunglasses


Another excellent choice is a pair of Ray Ban Large Metal Aviator 3025 sunglasses, just one of the many Ray Ban sunglasses that come with the mirrored treatment. The dark lenses help absorb light and reduce glare, which is best for those who plan on spending plenty of time outdoors this summer, especially those who are heading out on the water. Boaters, water sport enthusiasts and others planning on being near the water will benefit greatly from this treatment.
