Summer Trends - Sunglasses

After spending the weekend under the sun (and escaping the miserable Victorian weather!) I'm in the mood for Summer - and my favourite accessory, sunglasses, is on the top of my wish list.

Dress up, dress down, by the pool, out for lunch - every situation calls for a chic pair of sunglasses to carry that Summer look from casual to something special.

And don't think you have to spend hundreds of $$. Bulk up your collection with a couple of well-suited, budget-friendly pieces to accessorise every outfit. However, there is always room to invest in one or two special pairs to really show off that Summer sophistication and uber style. Here are some great examples of women's and men's designs that I wouldn't mind having in my collection (well, the men's ones anyway)

Carrera - Safari/A

Carrera - Grand Prix 2

Carrera - so so cool. The lenses are generally oversized and imposing, which is a fabulous way to draw attention in the crowd. 'Racing-car' chic never looked so good. The men's glasses are masculine, sleek and strong, while the women's designs give the wearer a thelma & louisesque feel - an empowered confidence. Don't be afraid to look confident and borderline self-indulgent - why not!?

Gucci - Large Square Frame

Gucci - Medium Rectangle Frame

Gucci - need I say more. It's Gucci. Always classic, always going to transcend a look into another sphere of sophistication. Clean lines, refined elegance and a sense of Italian cool that creates the ultimate sense of style that everybody deserves to feel. It's all about the way we feel, not the way others feel about us. Feel good. Get Gucci.

Marc Jacobs - Oversized Sunglasses
Marc Jacobs - Black Havana Framed Aviator

Some designers do things well. Marc Jacobs knows sunglasses. Provocative, yet dignified. Classic, yet contemporary. A pair of Marc Jacobs sunglasses is going to remain in style for years to come and is going to complement any number of looks. Invest I say, invest! With so many styles to choose from, it was even hard choosing my favourites to highlight here. But take a look yourself, you can't go wrong.

Thierry Lasry - Agony 220

Thierry Lasry - Anorexxxy v060

Thierry Lasry is a revelation to me when it comes to sunglasses for women. Individual, bold and timeless, Lasry's vintage yet cutting edge collections are the ultimate in personal style and expression. Beautifully made and accented with demure yet engaging design and pattern. Thierry Lasry sunglasses really are a statement in personality. Be yourself - be the best of yourself! Show off and have fun. Definitely worth having a pair of these.
