There are a lot of different styles of sunglasses out there. From classic aviators to trendy teeny-tiny shades that barely cover your face, there’s a perfect pair of sunglasses for every person. They can also say a lot about your personality, especially when it comes to first impressions. So what do your signature shades say about you? Read on to find out!
1. Round (a.k.a. “John Lennon” glasses)
If these circular glasses are your go-to, you’re probably a pretty chill person. Born in the wrong decade, you spend more time reminiscing about Woodstock and Jefferson Airplane than anything else. On the weekends, you can be found lurking in the depths of vinyl record shops and dusty second-hand stores. You have a pretty eclectic taste in music and art….so long as it didn’t come out after 2000.
2. Aviators & Wayfarers
You might like to stick to a classic look, but you’re anything but boring! You’re versatile, just like these shades. You are a pretty social butterfly, with friends in all corners of the world, and are always down for a good time. Whether you’re wearing these glasses to a beach party or to hide your Sunday hangover the next day, you’re always ready for any situation, just like Tom Cruise in Top Gun.
“A nightmare dressed like a daydream,” these glasses might be cute, but they’re also deadly. Especially if you pair your glasses with your lipstick, you are the kind of person not to be messed with. You still have your Red poster tacked to your childhood bedroom wall, and you’re very vocal about it. You’re pretty big into Pinterest and Modcloth, and you’re always dressed to the 9s. With or without these glasses, you’re the living embodiment of early 2010s Taylor Swift.
4. Teeny-tiny Baby Shades
Who said UV protection can’t be fashionable? These shades might not be the most practical for protecting your eyes from the sun, but they as hell do look good! (And you know it.) You live for Instagram and Tiktok OOFD videos, always on Depop to hunt for the next biggest fashion trend (regardless of what that might do to your bank account.)
5. Tortoise-shell/Cheetah Print Rims
The bigger these glasses, the better. Without your iced coffee everyday (regardless of the season) and your Google Calendar, you don’t know how you’d make it through the day. You’re a busy busy bee, always on the move! These shades are probably floating around at the bottom of your purse for whenever you need to shield yourself from the glares slow-walkers give you when you are running past them on the sidewalk.
6. Super-reflective Lenses
You’re a mystery. An enigma. A ghost, perhaps. Do you even have a name? Not sure. You like to keep people guessing because that’s what makes life interesting. Just be careful on super sunny days not to blind anyone on the street!
