Don Large Sunglasses, £110 | ACE & TATE

Aviators have transcended their military origins to become a timeless classic. There’s a reason for this: their lightweight frames and teardrop lenses means they look good on pretty much all face shapes – and pair well with everything from linen suits and collared shirts to simple tees.

Square-Frame Acetate Sunglasses, £69 | COS

Square frames are that bit more fashion-forward, meaning they’re good for adding an edge to classic looks. Black can be quite heavy; for a softer look, consider dark brown or tortoiseshell depending on your skin tone. For rounder faces, chunky frames add structure and look cool with blazers, shackets or simple crewneck jumpers.

Clubmaster Acetate & Gold-Tone Sunglasses, £125 | RAY-BAN

Round glasses are almost universally flattering but they’re especially good at softening more angular faces. Contemporary preppy styles work best with laid-back separates like oversized sweatshirts, denim shirts and bomber jackets.
