You don't have to be a celebrity to know the power of a great pair of oversized sunglasses. Sure, they're great for UV protection, but they also serve as a statement accessory—hiding your face at the same time that they complement your outfit. After a few years of tiny shades dominating, big is back.

"The bigger, the better!" Joshua Matta, optician, designer, and CEO of G.O.D Eyewear, agrees. "We are seeing bug-eyed mega shades and retro-futuristic white glasses with lighter lenses." If you're worried about your look skewing a little too throwback by readopting these shades, don't fret. There are plenty of more of-the-moment takes with elevated design details like a subtle cat-eye shape and a thick acetate frame.

One of the biggest perks of oversized sunglasses is they tend to look good on all face shapes. "As long as the fit is secure and comfortable, there are no other rules," Matta explains. So you can opt for a trend that best fits your personal sense of style without having to worry about how the shape will look on you. Take a page out of Bella Hadid's book and try the rimless mask styles of the aughts (just be sure to pair them with low-rise jeans while you're at it). Or if you're inspired by the likes of J.Lo and Kim Kardashian, turn to super-sharp square styles that will make you feel prepared to shout, "No photos, please," mid-paparazzi encounter. Below, find 10 of our favorite oversized sunglasses options that are guaranteed to make you feel famous.
