What is the perfect summer accessory? Sunglasses! Not only do they take any outfit to the next level, they’re also great for protecting your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. We’ve put together a handy list of the perfect designer sunglasses for you this summer.
Up first we’ve got the Bottega Veneta Hexagon frame gold tone sunglasses. These sunglasses are the perfect pair if you’re looking for a timeless piece that will never go out of fashion. The hexagon frames make them unique while still complimenting the shape of the face. They retail for roughly £285, however if you look after them well, they’ll last you a lifetime.
The Fendi cat eye acetate sunglasses also have that timeless look about them. Featuring the double F Fendi print, they’re a real statement piece. Retailing at £229, they’re not the cheapest, but are extremely well made. Paired with the perfect summer outfit, you’ll look extremely chic laying next to the pool.
The Givenchy Aviator style gold tone and tortoise shell acetate sunglasses are a perfect spin on aviators, with a nice little tortoise shell finish to them. This pair of sunglasses retail for around £245, so they won’t break the bank. Plus once you purchase them, you can wear them year after year as the style is a real timeless classic.
If you really enjoy the tortoise shell vibe for this summer then the Loewe oversized square frame tortoise shell acetate sunglasses are just the pair for you. The oversized fit of the lenses will give any outfit that chic finish. The signature gold hardware at the temples finish these sunglasses off perfectly, giving that luxury look. How much is the luxury look I hear you asking? Well these retail for roughly around £260, so not miles ahead of the other sunglasses we’ve mentioned above. Again, tortoise shell will never go out of fashion, meaning these can be dusted off and worn again year after year!
What’s the trend for 2021 when it comes to sunglasses? Fashion experts have forecasted that curved aviator frames with a twist on the classic design, will be all the rage for this summer. Where can you pick up a pair like this? Tom Ford, Saint Laurent and Bottega are just a few of the big brand designers who have put their spin on the classic aviator style.
When choosing your perfect pair of designer sunglasses, of course you want them to look stylish and compliment your face shape, and outfit. However, it is also really important that you consider the protection the sunglasses will offer you as well. You need to check that they offer both UVA and UVB protection. Look for those marked with 100% protection. You don’t want to splurge a large amount of money on a designer item for it to not be fit for purpose and offer you the necessary protection.
Now that spring has sprung and the sun is slowly coming out in the UK, will you be investing in some designed sunglasses this year?
