Seems there are more great sunglass brands available than ever before.
To help sort the aviators from the teashades*, we asked Style Doctor Jackie O’Fee (www.signaturestyle.co.nz) to recommend styles for some of our most familiar New Zealand faces.
Trelise Cooper: Jackie says “Look at Trelise Cooper, she's just bubbles and light! She can definitely have a lot of fun with her choice of sunglasses. I love this Miu Miu frame for her, because it’s not too heavy and the light colours matched those gorgeous curls. Trelise can wear a larger frame quite successfully because she's not a waif.
David Dallas: “David has quite soft features, he's a beautiful man. This RayBan frame won't overwhelm his fine features, but at the same time it has a manly vibe with a little touch of sport.
Kate Sylvester: Jackie says “Kate has quite a long face so she can carry a bigger frame. I like the touch of elegance these Vogue have with the knot at the arm, and the blended tint would sit her Kate’s colouring.
Bret McKenzie: Bret is quite fine featured – you don't want to overwhelm that with anything too strong. I like the softness of these Tommy Hilfiger sunglasses for Bret, and the simple arm – he has a direct gaze and an elegance which these will complement.
Sara Tetro: She could wear anything! Seriously, look at her. These Sass and Bide sunglasses would be a step out for her because she is quite understated in her style – and a bit of fun.
