Whether you’re a mathlete or completely clueless when it comes to mathematics, the hot trend of using geometric shapes in designer sunglasses is popping up everywhere. Polygons galore can be found in brands like Oliver Goldsmith and MYKITA, making for a unique look that will stand out in your everyday wardrobe. Here are the top geometric sunglasses for 2012.
Oliver Goldsmith Kendal sunglasses are the perfect example of a geometric design. Touted as an “aviator with a difference,” this frame from the brand’s Icons collection was designed in 1970 to show the fashion world that aviators were not required to be made in a certain shape or with metal. Kendal features a matte black quartz frame with beautiful gradient lenses, and is also available in Coulis Sandwich, Electric Tortoise, Grey Aqua, and Black Truffle.
MYKITA Ethan sunglasses stick closer to the classic aviator shape, keeping the basic design and adding a few extra angles. Rather than going for rounded lenses, the brand opts for a pentagonal shape, with the upper right corner providing a side for the trapezoidal bridge. The black frame features black gradient lenses, as well as matching nose pads and plastic ear tips.
When you search for a pair of square sunglasses, you come up with a whole lot of styles whose designers clearly are unaware of the definition of “square.” Not with Oliver Goldsmith. Once again, the London brand knows just what it takes to create a cool geometric frame. Rather than going for a structured rectangular look (which is what you’ll find in most of the styles that are supposed to be “square”) Oliver Goldsmith Fuz sunglasses are exactly what you expect. The shape stands out, especially with its stunning tortoise-colored frame and rosy lenses.
As seen in the latest fashion shows, retro eyewear is still the mode this season. Round sunglasses in particular are a great way to add a bit of vintage flair in your style, and Vizio Optic has plenty to choose from.
One of the most popular styles is a pair of Ray Ban Rounded Wayfarer 4141 sunglasses, a twist on the original Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses style. The rounded version, which comes in Light Havana and Black, features circular lenses inside the iconic frame, with flared outer tips and silver accents in the corner. The brand’s signature embellishes the temples.
For an ultra-feminine version of this look, there are Face a Face Roses 3 sunglasses. Drawing from the mod looks of the past, the large round lenses are locked into a glossy plastic frame with a recessed trim. The front rim is a beautiful shiny black, complemented by the stark white temples that slope into curved ear pieces. The voluptuous arms of Roses 3 are accented with one silver dot that subtly completes the statement frames.
Those who are going for a more authentic look without the modern tweaks may like Oliver Goldsmith Koko sunglasses, a distinctly retro style. The thick, round rims and gray lenses are inspired by the oversized sunwear of the 1960s. Koko also features a laser-etched OG symbol in the lens corner, two silver circle accents on the temples, and straight paddle arm pieces that sit comfortably over the ears.
