Guest Post: Summer Trends for Glasses

July 28, 2015
Sunglasses are the ultimate statement accessory over summer, so if you’re after some inspiration, look no further! Have a browse at this list of some of the best, bold styles and start transforming your outfits.

Cat Eye – The cat eye may be associated with the 50s but with fashion icon Olivia Palermo on board, it’s clear that they’re here to stay. If you’re on the hunt for an affordable but high-quality pair of glasses this summer, Lipsy’s chic black Sun 34 glasses with bold animal print sides are the perfect addition to your collection.

Colourful – If you can’t embrace colour during summer, when can you? Designer brands such as Wildfox Couture and Marc Jacobs are setting the trend this year with various pops of colour. Pink or purple glasses are the perfect way of brightening up a simplistic summer outfit of denim shorts and a loose shirt.

White Frames – If you’re going to a festival this summer or just fancy some new statement glasses, white frames in various shapes are a favourite of designers such as Christian Siriano and are a fun, casual way of making your outfit slightly more striking. For a combination of block monochrome and the iconic wayfarer, have a browse at Lipsy’s Sun 37 glasses.

Novelty – With both designer brands and your favourite high-street shops stocking novelty eyewear, don’t worry about taking bold to the next level. Unique novelty sunglasses of all colours, shapes and sizes are the perfect, easy way to make your outfits a little more interesting. Whether they’re glittery or heart-shaped, ensure that you make the most of the sunnier summer months, embrace your inner child and enjoy standing out.

Aviator: You can’t go wrong with a pair of aviator sunglasses! Mirrored lenses are an interesting, modern take on this style, yet the more traditional design remains a summer favourite for every occasion. There are also plenty of affordable high-street options to choose from. For a reliable, affordable and gender neutral pair of aviators, take a look at F+F’s Sun 05 Silver glasses.
