One of the hottest trends of spring and summer 2013 are sunglasses. Choose the right pair and you can turn your outfit from a floral fiasco to sassy summer outfit. With such a huge range of styles to choose, from John Lennon inspired circular lenses to the retro chunky range which is currently on sale at Stella McCartney, it’s easy to get confused. But one thing is certain, sunglasses have arrived, and they are bigger than ever.
Design houses from all over the world are turning their attention to these seasonal accessories. The main thing to look for when investing in a pair of sunglasses this summer is embellishments. Anna Sui and Chanel’s catwalk collections both featured sunglasses with plastic floral designs. Anything that makes a bold statement when you are at that family picnic or waiting in the departure lounge is a fantastic look.
If you are searching for something a bit different from the norm, Moo Piyasombatkul eyewear, a favourite of Lady Gaga, embellishes sunglasses in the baroque style for a quirky vintage look.
Looking to really treat yourself? Dolce and Gabbana have a range of very summery stripy frames from around £164 which will look great on the beach. If you’re not looking to spend quite so much, try a pair of classic Ray Ban Sunglasses, such as the ones stocked at Red Hot Sunglasses at amazing prices – they suit all face shapes. A pair of Wayfarers or Aviators will look effortlessly cool for any event too and can always be relied upon for any style.
If some of these sunglasses may seem slightly too outlandish to wear every day, try and take inspiration from the designer collections when shopping for your perfect pair of frames. A bright colour or a slight embellishment will give you a hint of designer sophistication without having to break that bank.
