Mar 24, 2013 Olympic Eyewear


You can try to imitate your favorite celebrity's look. Wouldn't it be cool to have J-Lo's sexy diva style down pat. Or Victoria Beckham's posh style down to a T. For men, there's the casual cool of Usher or the effortless looks of Brad Pitt. There are also stars that pull off the quirky look like Lady Gaga. But you will never look like a celebrity until you learn to rock it like a superstar with designer sunglasses.

Sunglasses are a necessary accessory for celebrities. They add to the celebrity's mystique. A nice pair also ups the coolness factor. In fact, there are some celebrities that have their own line or brand of sunglasses. Some examples of celebrities with their line of sunglasses would be Paris Hilton, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson, Sean Combs and even American Idol's Randy Jackson. The good news is you don't have to break your budget to get your favorite celebrity's look – you can get designer sunglasses wholesale from Olympic Eyewear.

Of course, styles come and go so you need to update your look regularly. It is also important to make sure that your chosen look suits you – your personality, sense of style, as well as occasion. Sunglasses should serve as a frame for your face, to hide its imperfections and highlight its assets.

Some popular celebrity styles

Rectangular. This square-ish shape provides enough angles to make a face more interesting. The angular frame, usually coupled with two-toned lenses, adds superstar quality. This suits round faces since the angles of the frame "sharpen" the rounded areas of the face. The rectangular shape also makes the face look thinner. Katie Holmes is usually seen sporting a pair of rectangular sunglasses, making her look clean-cut yet dainty.

Cat Eye. This exudes a modern-retro chic that flatters all face shapes and is actually one of the hottest trends in 2013. These horn-rimmed frames flare at the outer edges. These suit celebrities such as Rihanna, Anne Hathaway and Scarlett Johansson because these add to the feminine silhouette of the face. You can look for wholesale designer sunglasses that have the cat eye frame, especially if you have a square, round or triangular face shape. Cat Eye sunglasses may also be embellished with rhinestones, gems and crystals to add to the "bling" factor.

Classic square. Almost everyone, celebrity or not, can pull of this look. Take Taylor Momsen or Pippa Middleton who wear this frame type to perfection. This frame is ideal for those with high cheekbones and long, oval faces. The great thing about square sunglasses at wholesale is that it can be worn for a variety of occasions. Like celebrities, you can wear this for a day at the beach, casual shopping outings or outdoor parties.

Round frames. Make like Lady Gaga or Elton John and sport over-sized round shades so that you can exude rock-star flair. This will suit you best, especially if you have a square-shaped face.

Geeky matte-frames. Get geek chic like Toby McGuire, Justin Timberlake, Johnny Depp or Zooey Deschannel.  You can go for black matte, non-shiny frame that looks cool whether you're in jeans or in casual wear.  If matte black is not your thing, you can add a punch of color with purple, blue, green or red geek frames.

Aviators. Popularized by "Top Gun" Tom Cruise, this timeless style continues to look hot and you can rock a pair of aviator shades , especially one with mirrored lenses. Aviators suit heart-shaped and square faces, and of course, oval faces. Those with round faces can also wear aviators but should look for wholesale designer sunglasses that have straighter edges.

Playful and quirky. Sunglasses show personality and flair, which celebrities have in spades. You can try funky retro shades (that are small and round), patterned (with polka dots, animal prints or the pattern of your choice), or bamboo designed sunglasses. You can also go for sunglasses with quirky shapes – diamond-shaped, heart-shaped or even butterfly-shaped.
