This season, old-school styles are experiencing a resurgence courtesy of brands such as Balenciaga and Givenchy. Go full Mad Men with some heavy D-frames or a slightly softer, ’60s-inspired rounded style. You can never go wrong with an aviator, but try them with blush pink or yellow-tinted glass to add a fresh take.
A perennial favorite, this classic but always cool shape helps define the cheekbones and gives any outfit a playful edge. Go bold with exaggerated wing-shaped frames by Zimmermann, or play it extra cool with statement-making prints and bright hues from the likes of Valentino, Prada and Dries Van Noten. If you’re really feeling the feline love, head straight for the Fendi logo-print option, mini ear-like details included.
This ’90s supermodel style is not going anywhere, so get on board and start channeling your inner Christy Turlington. Narrow-framed with a micro-size circumference, this skinny shape may not be the best at shielding you from the sun, but it will add some serious attitude to summer outfits. With sleek silhouettes by Andy Wolf and Le Specs, this understatedly simple shape is the perfect choice for every outfit.
Anyone with an inclination to hit that snooze button for the fourth time will be acquainted with the vital role an oversized pair of glasses can play in your life, particularly on the morning commute. Look to Balenciaga, Cartier and Anna-Karin Karlsson for blackout glamour styles and turn tired into a trend.
Whether you like to spice up a simple look or are a loyal fashion follower, sunglasses are another excuse to push sartorial boundaries. Head to Balenciaga for bright, full-colored acetate wraparound styles, Chloé for love-heart shapes and Anna-Karin Karlsson for green crystals, glitter embellishment and a tiny panther sitting on one side of the frame.
