Sunglasses are one of the most ironic pieces in the wardrobe. They function to hide your eyes from the shade, yet cause you to stand out in the crowd. Even in T-Shirts and jeans, sunglasses can turn you from run-of-the-mill to mysterious and alluring.
No makeup? No problem, these babies will hide your features and make you look polished even though you may be a hot mess behind those dark lenses. Needless to say, sunglasses are a vital part of any style arsenal.
This season’s sunglasses are focused on structure and detail while echoing vintage styles in their designs. Fendi’s Paradeeyes are one of the designs that utilises architectural shapes and structure. Playing up geometric shapes and lines, Fendi creates an ode to feminine modernity with their Paradeeyes’ floating architecture design.
For wallflowers with more understated tastes, brands like Kate Spade feature subtle little details into their sunglasses.
What may look like basic shapes in the Kate Spade collection, are given a whimsical twist with glitter and wavy temples. Cheeky phrases like “Boys make passes at girls in glasses” printed inside along the temples for an extra dose of fun.
MaxMara chose to channel the past by paying homage to the iconic bombshell Marilyn Monroe. The 50s inspired shades have a butterfly shaped frame and studded detailing. The new iconic detail is the distinctive detail of the new collection.
Whether you’re a mad fashion collector or a sunglass monogamist, this season’s hot styles are sure to inspire you to pick up a new pair of shades cooler than the season itself.
