Tom Ford Rick Aviators are the perfect style to accompany you through the warmer season with their golden frames and blue hues; you’ll love them so much you’ll probably end up sporting them all year long.

Cat Eye Sunglasses

A style that’s surely on the rise is the cat eye sunglasses. This edgy style is perfect for those days spent in the sun at your favourtie rooftop hangs around the city. Prada’s Cinema Evolution cat eye sunglasses are the perfect pair for such things. A thicker frame around the face with pointed edges give off an elegant, ‘off beat’ vibe you’ll love all summer long.

Round Sunglasses

Heading to a festival this summer? Be sure to snap a pair of the timeless round sunglasses to boggy along with you all summer long. Round frames offer the perfect dose of funky vibes every time you put them on. Ray Ban’s Round Fleck Sunglasses are the funkiest of all – with tortoise spotted frames and lenses that reflect summer sunsets; you’ll find yourself never leaving the house without them. 

Wayfarer Sunglasses

The ultimate cool girl style is the wayfarer sunglass. The ‘little sister’ of aviators, this style is perfect to pair with your classic black jeans and white tee combo. Spruce it up a bit with the Dolce and Gabbana wayfarers that sport a gold side paneling against a matte black frame for that extra burst of cool vibes to carry you through all summer long.

Wooden Frames
