With the Fashion Week season coming to an end, New York, London, Milan & Paris have seen countless models, celebrities, editors, buyers and stylish girls walking down their highly photogenic streets. 

And what's the key accessory they are all wearing? That's right: a pair of sunglasses to protect them from both sunshine rays and streetstyle photographers flashes, but also to hide the effects of last night's after-show party – or maybe just to look cool.

The perfect occasion for us to go through 2016's key sunglasses trends, as spotted on some of the world's most stylish girls.

One of the biggest sunglasses trends of 2016, Cat Eye sunglasses are all the rage.

From Gigi to Kourtney, Kendall & Kylie, the most fashionable celebs have made them their pair of choice this year, and we understand why: sharp yet ultra-feminine, their eye-catching design complements particularily well heart-shaped faces (think wide forehead and a narow chin).

With their strong John Lennon vibe, round-framed sunglasses are originally associated with the 1970's hippies era.

But these last few seasons, the curvy frames have been making a huge comeback, and for good reason: casual and easy to match with pretty much any outfit, they are the epitome of gypsy chic so we're definitely big fans!

A cult shape which is not leaving anytime soon: Aviators are still the way to go if you want to add a dose of timeless cool to any outfit.

Whether you pick the classic Ray-Ban RB3025 with G-15 Green lens or go for a more modern reinterepration, you simply can't go wrong with a pair of Aviators.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all? Well, with mirrored sunglasses it could be you!

In 2016, mirrored sunglasses (or "flash lenses") are the secret recipe to stand out and make any pair a cool pair by injecting an instant dose of modernity to your frame.

We actually love them so much that we already wrote a full article dedicated to them!
