Two Pairs of Sunnies That Suit My Big Head


Sunglasses are a notoriously hard purchase for me to make. Personally, they’re up there with jeans – that’s how tough it is to find pairs that don’t make my rather large, circular face look even more like a football. For the past three years I’ve stuck to a pair of Rayban Wayfarers (the male version – see I told you I had a huge face!) and carried them around with me 24/7. I love them and I don’t think anything will ever beat these in how they go with absolutely everything and provide blockage of enough light to stop me squinting. However I had an itch for something a bit different and on a recent trip to Urban Outfitters I managed to find not one, but two pairs of sunnies that suited my big head…

First up are the Trim Sunglasses in Tortoiseshell. They’re absolutely massive and are more on the square side of things which is always a good thing for me (I look ridiculously in anything even slightly circular in lens). Then there are the Edge Cat Eye Sunglasses in Purple which are completely out of my comfort-zone being cat-eyed and purple but I love them. Mark does a Dame Edna voice whenever I wear them, but I’m ok with that.

So fellow Hey Arnold shaped head gals, here are two pairs of sunnies that will suit, no long shopping trip required…
