Summer has officially begun, and with temperatures expected to stay warm over the coming weeks, there’s no better time to snap-up your spring summer 12 shades. This season’s sunglasses are not for the shy and retiring. Some classic shapes remain on the trend agenda, but it’s hip circular glasses - think slightly thicker frames than John Lennon would have worn - and retro silhouettes that give the season a fun twist.
The trend story is a tale of two halves, with simple, minimal glasses tipping a nod to the 1960s, while shades adorned with jewels also make a statement. Colours abound with green, purple and pastels follow the season’s clothing trends, and if you’re looking to channel your inner retro pin-up, well, the cat-eye shape is for you. Tortoiseshell and aviators offer something for the more classic sunglass sartorialist, while the iconic Wayfarer style will still keep you sunning high in the style stakes.
