THE ONE ACCESSORY I NEVER LEAVE BEHIND.
Sunglasses. Formerly used solely to shield our eyes from the glare of the sun; now deemed a fashion staple in our everyday outfit choices.
As important as the bag I carry on my arm are the sunnies that rest on my nose. I am never without a pair but noted one thing has changed.
I’ve ditched the ‘bigger is better’ approach when it comes to the eye accessories.
Currently, I’m coveting the 90s retro trend. Also referred to as the ‘Matrix-esque’ of eyewear, the retro shades can automatically help spruce up a look. The sculptured frames and cool mirrored lenses definitely make a statement. With an amazing pair of the right sunglasses, it minimizes the need to dress to impress. They do it all for you. Enabling us to keep everything else casual, sporting a white tee, forever black blazer and comfortable slip-on shoes.
The trend is everywhere, but the collection that has caught my eye are those by Le Specs. An Australian sunglasses brand that ‘encourages people to love life, be happy and discover moments to escape the every day.’
Drawn in by the striking frames and delicate gold accents. The bold daring colours contrasted by the clear acetate styles. Its a brand with a pair for every occasion.
An exaggerated cat-eye silhouette or the chunky, oval frame, it is difficult to decide on a favourite. But one thing is for sure; I crave them all.
We just need the sun to stick around, and I won’t be taking them off.
