Essential Shade Style



The second most trending topic, after the Royal Baby, has to be this heat-wave.  Some love it, some loathe it but either way we have to make the best of it and do it in style and by in style we mean in shades and what better way to start than with these candy stripes shades from Moda Operandi!

candy stripe glassesThese beautiful creations, also known as, ILLESTEVA Stripes Leonard Two are made for me because I just love round Lennon style sunglasses but I don’t have the face to wear them (long, thin!).  What makes these so great is their round lens but the wayfarer style side flicks which will suit most face shapes.  And let’s not overlook the massively on trend monochrome stripe and red underside which makes them just the right side of colourful.  My new favourite thing. . .along with a couple of others below.

Dolce And Gabbanna also took inspiration from candy stripes when designing their new striped sunglasses.  Accessorise yourself perfectly with your deck-chair! The wonderful thing about white is it enhances a summer tan and this shade of blue is so Ocean like you can’t help but want to be on a beach.

But if stripes are not your thing you can always revert to the classic tortoise shell but with a twist, Stella McCartney does that twist perfectly with these square shaped glasses.  The shape is so modern, almost space age, but the frame is a classic combo which stops the look being too alternative, the perfect, on trend, protection from the sun’s glares.

Or if you prefer something more understated but still perfectly on trend then it is our delight to introduce you to these by Gucci. Perspex is a huge trend right now in shoes, bags and accessories and lends itself beautifully and tastefully to these shades which are also available in pink, green and lemon yellow so plenty of choice for everyone.

With so many options there is not excuse to not protect your peepers from the sun’s rays and look good, which shade is your style?
