Now that the clocks have gone forward, the days are longer and lighter, and – despite the grey clouds and the beast from the east – we are approaching summer and it’s time to get your hands on the coolest sunglasses trends for this season! SS18 catwalks have seen a range of quirky and fun styles, as well as some classic shapes which are sure to carry you through a lot of summers to come. So, whether you are looking for something to give your outfit an edge or want to embrace a more timeless look, here are the sunglasses trends to watch out for.
The slim styles
Narrow frames are everywhere this season, and are an easy way to add a 90s edge to your summer outfit. From a classic circle shape, to metallic lenses or an abstract shape, you’re bound to find a smaller pair of glasses that works for you.
The cat eye
The cat eye is a classic style which, as ever, has taken SS18 by storm. This shape is the perfect way to channel your inner Julia-Roberts-in-Notting-Hill.
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.
The rectangle and square shapes for SS18 are a really simple and laid-back approach to sunglasses trends, and are easy to pair with any outfit or poolside get up.
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?
