Rue Road Test: 60s-Inspired Round Sunglasses

Round, 60s-inspired sunglasses are coming back in a big way this spring and summer. Flattering on those with an oval-, diamond-, square-, triangle-, or oblong-shaped face (so… just about everyone), these frames can be worn confidently from dawn to dusk.

I don’t usually stray too far from my classic Ray-Bans, but I had to find out for myself whether this hot 2013 look would work for me. So I got in touch with my inner John Lennon and tried this bold trend. The verdict? I’m officially a convert:

Boasting black and gold frames with iridescent blue lenses, I chose this pair to modernize the look. My face is oval-shaped, and I found the thicker frames more flattering than the more retro rimless variety. But what to wear with this statement making-accessory? I went for an edgy day look and paired with a leather jacket, black skinnies, and a middle hair part, but I can’t wait to wear these babies with metallic swim pieces and spiked jelly sandals this summer.
