The attentive followers among you might have spotted my unconditional love for a nice pair of (designer) sunnies. I strongly believe that the right pair of sunnies can add that finishing touch to even the most basic look. Even if you’re just wearing a white Tee and some ripped shorts in summer, a pair of oversized round sunnies will give the whole ensemble a Seventies touch while some mirrored aviators will make you look modern and on trend. It’s also just as important to invest in a pair of qualitative glasses as extended unprotected exposure to UV can lead to lifelong eye damage.
I teamed up with my favourite optician, Optiek Lammerant (remember my blogpost here) to show you guys my 5 favourite sunglasses trends of the moment, of course illustrated with sunnies from my favourite designers
First up is the Logo Mania trend! Remember the ‘J’adior’ statement sunnies as unveiled at the brand’s summer 2017 show and designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri, where the black acetate is enhanced with the white ‘J’adior’ logo and vice versa? Well logo’s are hotter than ever!
Another logo favourite is everything Gucci for the moment(no surprise ha! 😉 ). Whether you’re going for the round or square tricolour glitter version or more simple for the square black version with gold logo on the side, Gucci is the way to go this spring/ summer season!
And how about this one with the iconic YSL logo? The perfect everyday oversized black sunnies but with that little extra Parisian chique touch on the sides!
Another trend to watch out for are the Flat Lenses! Metallic frames with plain or mirrored lenses will finish your look with a little hint of rock&roll! As seen on the Fendi Eyeline shades ( wearing the mirrored blue version here), the well known round Saint Laurent metallic frames or the ones below from Bottega Veneta with some luxurious leather details at the top.
Or are you a fan of more neutral shades? Transparent and blush shades are hotter than ever this season! Think about the thin Céline shadow in a transparent white acetate, new brand Carin with lots of feminine glasses in pastel colours or the round styles of Prada and Linda Farrow.
Not a big fan of oversized styles but still want something special? Then the Details trend is certainly what you’re looking for! Round frames are finished with precious rhinestones and gems at Jimmy Choo while Marc Jacobs goes for some twist details on its round gold metallic frames. Yay for that little extra touch!
Last but not least, all eyes on the Bridge! Nothing but love for the double nose bridge as seen on Saint Laurent, Fendi, Dita or my personal favourite: the Dior Mania with the mirrored lenses inserted as worn below! So cool!
Don’t care much about trends? Then timeless black is always a good idea! The Céline Stella is a big hit at the moment and one of my favourite pairs when I want to keep it simple yet stylish!
Ready for some serious sunshine right now! 😉
