You can’t go wrong with a pair of retro sunglasses, but sometimes it pays to push the boat out and try something a little different. Often working as the ideal finishing touch to a well crafted look, here are four sunglasses trends to try out this spring.
Sticking to tried and test dark lenses won’t harm anyone. But if you want to make more of an impression or fancy putting a statement touch on an outfit, the first of our sunglasses trends should do the trick. While KAMO does a great line in classic shades, it’s the brand’s bolder colourways that impress us most, such as this pair complete with orange Zeiss lenses.
Similar to ‘90s style the likes of light wash denim jeans, oversized shirts and bold colours, ‘90s style sunglasses are especially popular right now. Take this pair by VIU for example, which are sober in colour and made from hard-wearing acetate, yet feature a shape that wouldn’t look out of place on Kurt Cobain. Try wearing with similar ‘90s staples or use as an accent on a more conservative look.
If you can’t shake the love for classic shaped sunglasses, then why not try a pair but in a bright colourway? These Principe shades by MONC boast a throwback keyhole design straight out of the ‘50s but updated with a poppy red bio-acetate frame, which works as the perfect contrast to an otherwise tonal look.
While they may not suit every face shape, bold large frame sunglasses are a great way to introduce a bit of personality to an everyday outfit. Taking their inspiration from a pair of ‘60s Italian bifocals, this pair by Oscar Deen feature a strong brow, a thick bridge and graduated lenses.
