Jackie O, she was one of the major style icons of the 60's. When you think of Jackie O the first thing you remember is the glamourous oversized sunglasses she always featured. Her sunglasses were her trademark, women everywhere were soon to be seen wearing oversized sunglasses, in the daytime or night!
Today, oversized sunglasses are still as popular as ever, probably even more so with more influential celebs like Victoria Beckham and the Olsen twins being featured wearing them as the seasons must have staple accessory.
I love both Aviator and oversized sunglasses so I like to alternate between the styles depending on my mood.
I prefer the plastic sunglasses as opposed to the metal frames as I feel the plastic frames are softer on my face and more comfortable for me to wear.
