Deepika, Alia and Priyanka are obsessed with round sunglasses
Going full circle
Let’s not beat around the bush: circle is the shape of the hour. Take one look at Deepika Padukone or Sara Ali Khan and you’ll know that hoop earrings are back and round frames may never really have gone away. The 70’s iconic shape takes new form every now and then, but the standard structure never really changes. Priyanka Chopra has a different pair of round sunglasses to suit every mood, while Shilpa Shetty stays loyal to those mirrored frames that sit high on her razor-sharp cheekbones.
From Deepika to Alia, everyone in Bollywood seems to have switched their ‘kala chasmas’ to a fuller shape. Here’s where you can get in on the action.
11 round sunglasses that we love:
Malaika has been rocking these oversized round reflectors with a slim frame. Linda Farrow has a pair that we love.
Malaika Arora has been on a serious Gucci shopping spree and we love her latest purchase: these round sunnies. The sunglasses have text around the lens in French that loosely translates to," Blinded by love", love for this unique pair no doubt.
Priyanka Chopra is reigning queen when it comes to eyewear. PC has more UV protection for her eyes than any other celebrity out there. And she doesn't just experiment with shape, this round pair features a half-gold trim around its black frame. The closest we could find are a Garret Leight Seville Sun pair.Prada also makes a version.
For those of you who aren't quite ready to go all the way round, Amrita Arora may have found a winged solution. A round lens with a cat-eye extension. The lens maintains its round shape but the cat-eye helps adapt it for those who don't feel they can pull off this retro look. No doubt Amrita picked her pair up from Fendi.
These uber big sunglasses are perfect for a hangover day. They won't just block out the sun, they'll also hide your lack of sleep. We're loving the Vint and York 'Moll' version which, thanks to a thick black frames, lends the pair a super retro look. But if you can't get your hands on those, Vincent Chase makes a similar design for men which look just as great.
Anushka Sharma also seems to be a fan of round sunglasses, sporting hers in tortoiseshell with a gold bridge and arms. Linda Farrow seems to be experimenting with round eyewear and we're here for it.
If you're tired of alternating between silver and gold reflectors, you may want to make a red-hot statement in these. The tinted sunglasses seem to be Shilpa Shetty's favourite. Ray-Ban makes a shade in red that would make the devil trade his soul. But if that's not your thing, you could go for this rose-gold version.
Trust Deepika to opt for the classic round shape with a dark lens and gold frame. We love that she's paired her sunnies with big round gold hoops that kind of make it look like she has a circle theme going on. For a classic shape, you best bet Ray-Ban knows their stuff. Alia, however, has stuck with her trusty reflectors. But if you want as many pairs as these ladies, you're going to have to budget, so maybe try this pair.
