Oversized Sunglasses

April 11, 2011

When shopping for sunglasses we follow 2 simple rules, no matter what the year or current trends:

    1) Don’t spend over £20 on a pair (because we’re always losing or breaking them and can never be bothered to use the protective pouch past day 3 of owning them).
    2) The bigger the better (large enough to cover the majority of our face when we’ve had a little too much sun or we haven’t done our make up).

With these rules in mind, these are the 3 pairs on the top of our sunglasses wishlist this season:

Lipsy Logo Bow Sunglasses – We adore the super cute silver bows on the side of these sunglasses and the glimpse of  pink on the inner arms – girly and gorgeous and perfect to wear with feminine florals or a mini playsuit.

Silver Aviators – Ah, the Aviators, how we love thee! These are our festival sunglasses of choice and look great with a pair of distressed turn up denim shorts, a rock print cut off vest top and a pair of gladiators.

Tortoiseshell Wrap Sunglasses – Timeless, glamorous and sexy. These sunnies look best teamed with a maxi dress, chunky gold jewellery and a pair of wedges whilst sitting in a beer garden (or better still a beach bar!) on a long summer’s evening.
