#2- The "oversized" look is taking over this summer's trends

Oversized sunglasses for men and women are everywhere. These unisex sunglasses have the characteristic of being gender-neutral. Black plastic frames with wide rims are trendy!

Respecting specific proportions will help you make better choices. Ensure that the lower edges don't touch your cheeks when you smile and that the upper frame doesn't completely cover your eyebrows.

#3- Geometric frames are very trendy for sunglasses

Hexagonal, rectangular or even square…geometric sunglasses in 2022 are all the rage. Their minimalist or bold frames will appeal to many people. However, try on the pair that appeals to you the most, as some shapes don't suit specific faces.

Fashionable in the '90s, the rectangular shape is back! This decade, a version somewhere between retro and futuristic, will please many fashion fans. Rectangular frames are ideal for a polished, professional look.

#4- The aviator
