Whether it’s a bejewelled cat eye or classic aviators, there’s no doubt that sunglasses are one of the easiest ways to update an outfit. I’ve built up quite the collection over the years as I have a bit of a weakness for amazing frames! That said, it really as an accessory that can easily change any look. By switching up my eyewear I can change the whole vibe of my outfit in seconds. They’re definitely a key consideration when I’m planning my street style outfits. And I put as much thought into them when I’m pulling together a look for an event as I do my shoes and jewellery.
Here are a few of my current faves.
Small frame sunglasses are right on trend at the moment and given their modern silhouette I find they add a little edge to an outfit.
I love to have fun with vibrant colours when it comes to my sunglasses. The bold pink pair above can really add a playful touch to a look and are one way to make a strong statement.
Gold metal frames have been around for eons and for this reason they’re a reliable go-to. They also work back with almost everything in my wardrobe so they often get a workout.
Cat eye frames
I’ve always loved cat eye sunglasses as they have an old Hollywood feel about them. These days they’ve been updated with embellishments, come in a rainbow of colours and are an ideal way to transform any look.
Sleek black frames
A pair of classic black frames never goes astray. Whatever the shape, black eyewear it always gives an outfit a sleek, modern vibe.
The shape is a little old school and I love that they’re a little bit different to your standard sunglasses. Round frames are quite fun and can work with everything from a dressy ensemble to an off duty outfit for the weekend.
I adore statement sunglasses. Show me anything with embellishment and I’m sold. This pair with its jewelled rim is one such example when the right frames can really take an outfit next-level.
