The darling of our accessories wish list last season, retro shades are making even more of an impact for SS19. Firstly, there’s an even wider selection to choose from: oversized ’80s shapes by Saint Laurent, ’90s-style futuristic frames by Prada and classic ’60s silhouettes by Fendi. Secondly, cat-eye sunglasses are now in a league of their own; the perfect choice to define the cheekbones and add a chic edge to every outfit.
How to style them? Herewith three of the most interesting approaches: embrace a modern Matrix look by teaming your sharp frames with a full leather outfit like stylist Ada Kokosar; go for mini-sized frames and wear with a bright power suit for an ’80s vibe; or to go full retro, try dark lenses with a feminine midi dress. No wonder cats always look so smug.
