Nothing says glamour like a pair of oversized sunglasses, a favourite amongst celebrities and super models alike. Once worn by the unforgettable Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, the style has remained in fashion ever since. For a little oversized eye-wear inspiration, check out the collections of Stella McCartney and Fendi

2. Embellished sunglasses

If you’re keen to make a statement, it might be time to invest in a pair of embellished specs. From the brightly coloured to the femininely floral, this playful trend offers both the elegant and the extreme. A favourite among the likes of Olivia Palermo and Poppy Delevingne, you can browse the embellished trend in store today via
Le Specs and Preen.

3. Cat eye sunglasses

An eternal classic, cat eye frames have been enjoying a recent revival on the runway, and not a moment too soon. A favourite among the likes of Victoria Beckham, Bella Hadid and Mary-Kate Olsen, the cat eye can be seen (celebrated, and purchased) in all its glory at current collections by Gucci and Celine.  

4. Mirrored sunglasses

A fusion of sunglasses trends from the '80s and the '90s, the mirrored look comes in a vast array of unique frame styles, from the classic and timeless aviator to the glamorously retro wingtip. A bold and playful statement, mirrored specs can be shopped in the latest collections of Christian Dior and Sunday Somewhere.

5. Aviator sunglasses

For as long as we’ve loved sunglasses, we’ve loved the aviator look. Traditionally characterised by dark lenses and thin metal frames, this style is one of the most timeless options for those looking to complete their look with a subtle touch of cool. Explore the aviator aesthetic at Chloe and Christian Dior.
