Coloured lenses

Sunglasses with a bright lens are the perfect way to add a pop of colour to your outfit, and a really fun way to mix up more classic styles. Shades with orange, yellow, pink and blue lenses seem to be popping up a lot on the high street.

Embellished

The bedazzled sunglasses popping up in shops might be reminiscent of those sunnies you had when you were 8 years old, but they are undeniably fun and would definitely spruce up a dull outfit! Plus, there’s nothing wrong with a little sparkle, right?
