Some might say you’re never fully dressed without a smile, but here at ELLE you’re not quite there til you’ve framed your features with the right pair of shades. From top-heavy to cat-eye, here are the key trends.
Cat-Eye: everyone from Rochas to Prada have their version.
Plastic Fantastic: It’s cool to be clear, and colourful.
Top Heavy: Framed on the top, not on the bottom – genius.
Tortoiseshell: The perennial face-flatterer has many guises this season
Break the Mold: These weird and wonderful peepers transcend categorisation.
3D: Not just for the cinema. Think raised textures, embedded lace, and multiple dimensions hidden in the acetate. The trend of the future.
Well-rounded: Just like you. Intellectual and detached, still the choice of the cool kids this summer.
