From Funky Hippie Lookbooks to Half Moon Shades

 - Jul 26, 2012
Although aviators and wayfarers have remained popular favorites among fashionistas, round sunglasses are making a comeback this season. Popularized by John Lennon and hippies of the 60s, these circular shades add a retro twist to any modern ensemble.

Celebrities like Lady Gaga have helped revive this age-old classic back to its former glory days, and everyone from street style moguls to high-end fashion designers are finding ways to integrate this accessory into their lookbooks. Round sunglasses look particularly good on those with square faces since they help offset sharp, angled features. Whether you wear them with a polished suit or a boho-chic dress, these curvaceous sunglasses look bold and badass all year round.

Stylish round glasses are no longer reserved for just hippies, hipsters and Harry Potter. This retro style can be adopted by all willing and statement-setting style mavens.
