The Hottest Fashion Accessory This Season Is Not A Handbag Or A Shoe

It’'s all about mixing it up with your eyewear

You wouldn't apply a one-size-fits-all approach to any other part of your wardrobe, so why so many of us still stick to a single pair of glasses is, frankly, bonkers (in style terms at least).

The fact is, the right eyewear doesn't just frame the face, it can frame and finish a whole look.

Why limit yourself to a single pair when you can curate a wardrobe of eyewear that enhances and flatters every aspect of an outfit?

As this showcase of four of the season's hottest styles reveals, there are frames and finishes to suit every face, mood and occasion.

Only one question remains: how will you wear yours? 

THE NEW BOHEMIAN

Versatility is what makes these elegant frames so cooly sophisticated – it's a style that works just as well when you're channelling your inner blue stocking as it does when you want to work that insouciant, pared- back 21st century 'new creative' look. 'Clubround' acetate and metal frames, £130, and oval metal frames, £122, both by Ray-Ban

SWEPT AWAY

Not one for shrinking violets, granted, but if you're looking to make a style statement, this season's take on the 1950s cat's eye – updated with a metal frame and slim metal temples – is the style to do it in. Frames, stylist's own.

METAL MAGIC

If you're feeling the 1970s this season, then this update on the classic aviator is a must. Pair with a sleek, minimalist aesthetic for a fashion-forward take on retro-inspired style. Metal aviator frames, £214, Paul Smith, metal round frames, £122 by Ray-Ban.

GIRL MEETS BOY

When it comes to defining true style, the details count. Details such as the double bridge on these acetate frames (inspired by Ray-Ban's 'Gatsby' style) – the perfect foil for easy contemporary style. Acetate and metal frames, £130, Ray-Ban.
