Throw Some Shade: 5 Pairs of Sunglasses You Need Right Now

Oh hey summer: we’ve been waiting for you! Now the sun’s shining, it gives us an excuse to dig out our favourite SS17 accessory – a statement pair of designer sunglasses.

Much like the perfect handbag or a carefully draped scarf, a fabulous pair of sunglasses has the ability to transform even the most sombre of outfits. Wearing all black? You need a pair of sleek Parisian-inspired frames. Jeans and a casual tee? Embellishments everywhere on your shades. Little summer dress? Beachy mirrored aviators are your friend.

Not sure which frames you should plump for this summer? Take a look at the 5 pairs of sunglasses every woman should own below – which ones are your favourites?



Miu Miu Couture Cat Eye Sunglasses

If there was ever a pair of sunnies that would make you go ‘oh my’, it’s these Miu Miu crystal embellished frames. Playful, stylish and oh-so-glam, we’re lusting after these heavily decorated glasses…



Prada Catwalk Oversized Sunglasses

Every girl needs some oversized frames, and we’re seriously loving this Prada pair – big, bold and dramatic, these butterfly-silhouette glasses need pride of place in your handbag. We’re going to wear them with every outfit ever



Prada Catwalk Round Tortoise Sunglasses

Round frames are quirky and kitsch, and are perfect for adding a touch of fun to a laidback outfit.  These Prada tortoise glasses channel the seventies, and look amazing with loose waves and a casual, dressed-down look.



Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses

If you don’t own a pair of aviators, stop everything – you need a pair. This shape is iconic and a must-have for every fashionista; the silhouette is universally flattering and Ray-Ban is world-renowned for quality and style.



Michael Michael Kors Sweet Escape Sunglasses

Rose gold? Tick. Futuristic design? Tick. These not-for-the-faint-hearted shades are guaranteed to get you noticed this summer with their seamlessly cool shape and on-trend colour. We’re wearing these with a slicked-back ponytail and all-white outfit.
