To be honest this is the most exciting thing about the fashion season this summer, the catwalks were just full of vibrant and gorgeous accessories as well as sunglasses that you just can’t wait to get your hands on. Designers where thoughtful enough to give us a wide variety of sunglasses to choose from this time around, some are really extravagant and stylish while others are more traditional and even classic….. so lets break them down for you.
Cat-Eyes Sunglasses Let me start with my ultimate favorite shape this summer…. the Cat-Eyes Sunglasses. They have been sighted pretty frequently in the catwalk, I just find them so chic & glamorous, makes you feel like a movie star from the 50′s just finish the look with a silk scarf tied around your hair and your good to go. Not to mention that this shape works on nearly everyone’s face making a strong fashion statement. You’ll be able to find these in varying degrees of “cattiness” from the extreme at Proenza to the refined at Prada.
Round Sunglasses We have to thank Lady GaGa and Elton John for those, although I’m not very fond of round sunglasses but this classic shape has been renovated by designers designing its frames and lens in different hues, as well as frames with patterns or jewel-encrusting, which roots this trend in the fashion scene this year. One tip though, round shape Sunglasses are not good for anyone who has a curvy or round face.
Playful Sunglasses Some might think you’re a fashion victim some might think your mentally challenged to be wearing such sunglasses but what the hell, fashion is meant to be fun after all. Marc Jacobs launched these cutie pie heart embellished glares while Carerra was as playful and vibrant as ever, designing fun sunglasses with bold neon colors. So challenge yourself and get a pair of heart, oval and or even diamond-shaped shades that will make you feel …..lets say unique, after all it’s a perfect choice for girls who aren’t afraid to attract attention.
Sporty Sunglasses Sportswear inspired pieces has been one of the major trends shown on the catwalks this season, it’s not about practicality anymore its more about style,so why not have sunglasses that complements your outfit.
Gradient Sunglasses Well we’ve been seeing this trend come and go from the fashion scene but it never gets old. This trend is making a strong comeback this season with a variety of shaped frames.
Contract Sunglasses So if you’re not much into colour blocking and feel better if both the lens and the frame has a bit of contrast then these are the perfect sunglasses for you.
There’s alot more variety out there for you and you’ll even find some shades that just don’t look anything you’ve ever seen before, to be honest my favourite pick of this summer would be those Edgy Sunglasses from Fendi.
So find the Sunglasses that best suits your shape of face, style and always look fashion-forward!
