Sunglass Hut announced in June that Georgia May Jagger would be the new face of the brand, and she kicked off the launch of the fall collection this month by showcasing the newest looks — and her photography — at New York’s Fifth Avenue location.

So when you get to try on so many sunglasses each day (for your job!), how do you pick just one style to wear? According to Jagger, you simply pick more than one.

“I love an aviator, always,” Jagger tells PEOPLE. “And round shapes are great too, but nothing too small.”

Jagger’s sunglass choices, like her love of style, stem from her parents’ rocker looks. But it was her mother, model Jerry Hall, who inspired her connection to eyewear. “Certain styles remind me of my mom,” she says. “Like the cat eye.”

It’s one particular pair, however, that really made an impact. “My mom had a big chest of sunglasses and let me pick through all of hers,” she recalls. “She had one of the first pairs of red Ray-Bans, the original big Wayfarer ones. I’d always pick those out.”

Now, Jagger herself is drawn to Ray-Bans. “We have similar shaped faces,” she says of her mom, “so the classic Wayfarers in tortoise-shell look great on me, too.” Tell us: What type of sunglasses do you wear?
