In pursuit of the perfect sunnies? Finding the right sunglasses to match your facial features is easy as long as you know what sunglass-shape to look for. Check out some of our Sole Society favorites.

Square Face

Square facial structures have a strong jawline and are comparative in width on both sides of the face from top to bottom. To contrast a square-shape face, we recommend wearing round sunglasses.

Round Face

People with round faces have a round chin in addition to a wide facial structure around the cheeks and forehead. Most often, round faces work best with square or wayfarer-style frames.

Oval Face

Those who have oval faces often have the most choices because round and square sunglasses are both complementary to this shape. Don’t be afraid to try out cateye styles or something unusually sophisticated (just be sure to avoid giant-sized sunglasses and you’re good to go).

Heart-Shaped Face

The heart-shape face is characterized by a narrow chin, broad forehead, and distinctive cheekbones. Think: Reese Witherspoon. It’s best to opt for oval or aviator-style sunnies when looking for the perfect match.

MILLIE

We love the Millie because it makes a great beach bag, particularly the navy cream stripes featured here, which give a nod to the nautical trends of the season. This essential tote also comes in two other prints including a black and white geometric pattern and an exotic blue leopard denim perfect for making an impact on casual adventures.

StatementJewelry

Everyone loves a good statement piece, but not everyone knows how to really make them pop. A general rule of thumb for anyone who wants to wear statement jewelry that actually makes a statement is to make sure all other accessories are simple and minimalistic. In doing so, this allows bold pieces to stand out without getting lost in the mishmash of trying too hard. The key to making it work lies in combining one (maybe two) eye-catching accessories with a totally effortless outfit.

 

Let’s take a look at some of the most important “do’s and don’ts” of wearing statement jewelry:

 

DO wear statement necklaces like chokers or gemstones with tops that show off your neck, such as an off-the-shoulder top or a solid plunge-neck dress. In the case of extra-long necklaces like pendant chains or layered pearls, a solid color tee or form-fitting midi dress is all you really need.

 

DON’T combine statement necklaces with busy or flashy patterns. It is also best to avoid anything where a top’s fabric is already accentuating the neck such as halters or embellished collars.

 

DO feel free to layer multiple necklaces together for creating extra dimension.

 

DON’T select too many chunky pieces. Let chunky pieces be the statement while allowing thinner necklaces to be complementary in comparison.

 

DO color-coordinate statement jewelry with outfits that feature prints. Find a balance between the print and jewelry to ensure one piece is never overpowering the other. For example, a predominantly blue geometric dress would look more alluring with solid color jewelry featuring a cool hue that fits into the overall color scheme.

 

DON’T aim for stark contrast when pairing statement jewelry with outfits that include heavy graphics or patterns. Contrast works best with solid or colorblocked neutrals, in which case, colorful jewelry can be an awesome addition for that particular scenario.

 

DO keep in mind jewelry proportions and sizes. Wear big earrings, but only with smaller necklaces. Vice versa, large necklaces usually call for smaller earrings.

 

DON’T combine statement earrings with accessories that distract from their beauty, as other people’s attention will be naturally drawn to the face when socializing. If your earrings are making the statement, it’s important to avoid letting other pieces overshadow them.

 

DO remember to wear your hair in a style that allows for showcasing memorable pieces. After all, what good are diamond earrings if nobody can see them? It’s easy to up the elegance with a cute updo that allows your stones to shine and sparkle.

 

DON’T forget to check the weather. Whether it’s a wildly windy day or perhaps you’re just going for a cruise in the back of a convertible, having twists and tangles of hair stuck in your jewelry is never a good time.

 

DO take a holistic approach to building an outfit around statement jewelry. Always be sure to accessorize carefully in a way that is integrative, so each piece plays off the other, while allowing the primary statement to stand out the brightest.

 

DON’T wear too many crazy things at once. Outlandish fashion is fun, but ultimately works best with subtle pairings. We usually recommend wearing only one crazy thing per outfit.

 

DO take risks from time to time. For formal events, opt for something a little extravagant or even avant-garde. This type of statement jewelry can be a great icebreaker or conversation starter for meeting new people. Just let the piece do the talking and keep everything else simple and sophisticated.

 

DON’T be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Sometimes it’s easy to shy away from standing out because it feels more comfortable or familiar just blending in. The purpose of statement jewelry is to be noticed, which can be an excellent opportunity for opening new doors you may have previously never thought possible.

Searching for New Year’s Eve fashion inspiration to go with your list of resolutions? These party looks will give you major #goals.

 

Glam Goddess

Ring in the new year with glamorous details and plenty of panache. Fluffy faux-fur coats, feathery high heels, and slip dresses lined with dazzling sequins ensure that the only accessory you’ll need is a glass of bubbly.

 

Cool Trendsetter

 

 

Dress like the life of the party with modern styles that are as versatile as they are dynamic. Leopard print shoes get a sparkly makeover with crystal embellishments, while a basic jumpsuit is the perfect foundation for statement baubles and colorful dustings of confetti.

 

Femme & Flirty

 

Hey, girly girl. Step up your NYE outfit with all the right frills. From flirty lace frocks to embellished velvet pumps and rhinestone accessories, there’s no time like the holidays to show off your feminine charm.

 

Modern Minimalist

 

Prefer to keep things simple? Give your New Year’s Eve style a streamlined makeover by sticking with the tried and true. A plush velvet dress in a solid shade of winter white, evergreen, or cranberry looks timeless and fashion-forward. Just add a party clutch and some matching high heels to prove that basic doesn’t have to be boring.

 

Hopeful Romantic

 

Anxiously awaiting that New Year’s Eve kiss when the clock strikes midnight? Love is in the air with holiday looks that are big on romance. Fall head over heels in diaphanous chiffon dresses, velvet stilettos, ruby red accessories, and dark floral prints in full bloom.

Happy New Year!
