It wouldn’t be summer without a stylish pair of designer shades to protect your eyes from harsh UV rays and the paparazzi (if you happen to be an A-list celebrity). It doesn’t even need to be sunny for you to pop some shades on. Sunglasses look cool whatever the weather, and if you do happen to be a celebrity, it is even acceptable to wear your shades indoors!
Why Buy Designer Sunglasses?
Do you really want to be seen in anything other than designer shades? If you are not that bothered about your appearance, a pair of designer sunglasses won’t be high on your list of acquisitions this year, but if appearance is everything and you put a lot of effort into your look, it makes sense to invest in some stylish designer sunglasses. But which brands need to be on your shopping list this year?
Top Catwalk Trends in 2015
The catwalks have produced some incredibly funky eyewear trends this year. Top designers such as Stella McCartney, YSL and Victoria Beckham all showcased some fabulous designs. Celebrities love designer shades: Harry Styles tends to favour Ray-Bans, Rita Ora likes Miu Miu, and Reese Witherspoon has been papped wearing Stella Mc Cartney and Oakleys, but top of our list has to be Lanvin.
#1 Lanvin Sunglasses
Lanvin is the oldest of the French fashion houses. The brand is synonymous with quality, so investing in a pair of Lanvin sunglasses is never going to be a bad decision. The 2015 Lanvin range of designer sunglasses is very much on-trend. Discerning customers can choose from sexy cat-eye styles, aviators, classic wayfarers and oval frames. And if you choose Lanvin sunglasses, you are in good company because Pharrell Williams loves them.
Ray-Ban aviator shades are an all-time classic look for men and women. There are lots of iconic styles to choose from, including retro frames in gunmetal and black, gradient lenses. Or if you want to add a bit of colour into your life, pick up some fabulously funky wayfarer denim shades in blue, purple, grey or orange.
#3 Miu Miu Sunglasses
The Miu Miu brand is an off-shoot of Prada and is well known for its gorgeous high fashion lines and cutting edge eyewear. Miu Miu designer sunglasses are much beloved by celebrities and if you check out who’s wearing what, you are sure to spot a pair of Miu Miu shades. The 2015 range of Miu Miu sunglasses is particularly impressive this year. Check out the semi-rimless designs and reverse ombre tinted styles.
There are plenty more designer brands to choose from if you need a new pair of designer sunglasses this year. Check out what your favourite celebrities are wearing and emulate their look. You don’t even need to spend a fortune if you covet a pair of Lanvin, Miu Miu or Ray-Bans. There are lots of bargains to be had when shopping online. But do make sure that the sunglasses you buy are genuine; many cheaper ones are imitations.
