I received a number of WYSF (What You’re Shopping For) requests on sunglasses! Today, sharing a few favorite styles. I recently ordered these St. Laurent Kate Sunglasses (seen above) but have been going back and forth on them — are they too big for my face? I feel like they keep sliding down my nose? I LOVE the way they look on other people and have been stalking them for awhile now. They are so understatedly chic. (But, I’ve had a similar experience with Celines — I’ve ordered several pairs and all were enormous on my face! What do we think?).
What do we think? Do we love? I’m kind of inclined to keep them because I’ve wanted a new pair of designer sunglasses for awhile now and these are just so fabulous. That said, I have been really into these Chimis this season — I’ve owned my pair for a few years now — and they always make me feel fashionable. (P.S. Above, I am wearing the J. Crew cardigan so many of us ordered. You should size up in this if you’re in between sizes. I took my usual size — an XS — and it is a pretty snug fit. I layered it over a Kule tee).

Most importantly, if you love them and feel fabulous in them, then without a second thought keep them and wear with joy! But since you asked for opinions, I do think they overwhelm your face a bit.
You know, I agree — and that’s been the consensus on Instagram, too! I appreciate the candor/feedback! I am reminded of when I was seventeen and my mother, with intended love and tact, told me “Honey, those sunglasses are way too big on you.” I was furious with teenage righteous rage! But she was right. Ha. So, thank you 🙂
Since you asked, I think they are too big but just. Go for the same style with slightly smaller dimensions – I think you will be happier and feel more like “you”. Love that sweater and how you are styling it!
Thank you, Megan!! I agree. Sending back and will try something else! But they are SOOO chic.
