I used to get it so wrong with sunglasses and when I look around I often see people wearing either too big or small a shape  that is simply not flattering, it can be a costly mistake.

A couple of weeks ago while searching for a new pair at Oliver Goldsmith, I asked the super experienced Georgia, to share with me her top tips on buying sunglasses.

Investing in a new pair of glasses is such a great way to update your look. What I loved about the service I received at Oliver Goldsmith , is that I was given time to try all the glasses on in peace and quiet and the staff are super well trained.

Buying glasses is so hard , I always take a selfie, it is the only way to check how they look on your face.

Cat Eye glasses just dont suit me at all as they are best for a round face, I love this shape but I will be avoiding it in the future as I could see in the photos, how despite the beauty of the frames, called the Lancelot  they just did not suit me.

If you have an angular face, Audrey Hepburn did,then the Manhattan is a great shape for you .

If you are in doubt the aviator suits everyone, Oliver Goldsmith had the best ones and I will be back for these. They were light weight, not over the top and felt secure, I often feel that with other aviators they just don’t feel robust enough.

I couldn’t get the Blue Rainbow Norum out of my head,  this oversized shape suits me best and I loved the distinctive colour .

I just could not decide between the Aviator or the Norum, so a I am trying to be sensible, I decided to wait.

Now two weeks later I think the aviator is the one to go for as it is a classic, I can wear year after year.
