When you think of an autumn/winter wardrobe, a new pair of sunglasses might not be the first thing which springs to mind. However even in rainy England we still get the odd day of sunshine in winter months, so why not use that as the perfect excuse for a fabulous new eyewear purchase! I think that sunglasses are an innovative way to incorporate AW12 trends subtly into an outfit:
Purple is one of the biggest colours at the moment, and even if it isn’t your favourite colour trend it is extremely wearable in small doses.
Multiple pairs of sunglasses are a summer essential, and although whatever little summer we had is technically coming to an end in the UK, the weather is forever unpredictable and so sunglasses are always a handbag essential. Here are a few of my favourite shapes and styles, all from Sunglasses Shop.
Ray-Ban 2140 Wayfarer – Black Gradient 823/32 50mm – £117
The Ray-Ban Wayfarer is such an iconic shape, a sunglasses collection isn’t complete without it or a similar alternative. The ombre trend is still going strong, so why not incorporate it into your outfit with a pair of gradient Wayfarers?
SXUC Mirrored Aviator – Silver 4167 – £20
The aviator is another timeless shape, and if your budget doesn’t quite stretch to a pair of Ray-Bans then this £20 mirrored aviator by SXUC is perfect.
Chanel 5230q – Black 13453c – £230
Who doesn’t want to own a pair of Chanel sunglasses? This pair are an absolute dream and are perfect for both casual wear and more formal occasions for anyone who is willing to splash a little more cash.
Miu Miu 01ns – Tortoise HAN2Z1 – £156
A great statement pair of sunglasses by Miu Miu: attention grabbing in both their cat eye-esque shape and their bold tortoiseshell print.
SXUC Kylie – Tortoise 28147 – £20
Statement sunglasses on a budget: this tortoiseshell pair by SXUC are reminiscent of the Miu Miu pair above, but are a much more affordable £20.
