Designers scored an A-plus in geometry this summer with a slew of geometric sunglasses.
At Off-White, Virgil Abloh played with negative space by removing semicircles from his frames. Gucci paired oversize hexagons with another trend, the attached chain, for a bug-eyed chic even Grandma would covet. Maria Grazia Chiuri imagined the Dior woman trekking through a forest armed with large pentagonal sunnies, whose sultry gray lenses soften angles sharp enough to cut through vines.
“I always lean toward dimensional, geometric, and angular shapes for eyewear,” says celebrity stylist Leah Adicoff, who has worked with Emily Ratajkowski and new Bond girl Ana de Armas. “These styles are classic and flatter most face shapes, but they have a futuristic element that keeps them exciting.”
Those without 20/20 vision can also take part in the geometric sunglasses trend: Zenni has numerous affordable geometric frames that come complete with prescription lenses, anti-scratch coating, and UV protection. We’re particularly fond of the Premium Geometric Sunglasses with quasi-floating lenses (pictured above). Who knew math could be so stylish? From $33.
