Red carpet style guru, Melissa Rivers, gives us a few fun pointers on how to update any look with a new pair of stylin' shades.

How to style with sunglasses

"The fun thing about glasses is you can be whoever you wanna be," says Melissa as she jokes around in the SheKnows style closet. "You can get the big glasses and be very Victoria Beckham," she explains and that was only the start.

"You can go with traditional aviators," which she classifies as being very Gwyneth Paltrow, and she finishes off her sunglasses selection with a pair of "jet set queen" style shades.

Melissa makes a valid point as Editor in Cheif of Shoparatti.com -- that different styles of sunglasses can practically overhaul your look. Plus, "It's fun," she says. "Why not pretend to be someone else? Do it for a day."

Since all face shapes aren't made for all frame shapes, make sure the frames you choose are a positive match for your look. Also keep in mind factors like the size and color of the sunglasses before you set out to get your very own Gwyneth Paltrow style.
