Summer Sunglasses

My recent purchase of these bargain Vivienne Westwood sunglasses (£10 in ASDA!!) has prompted me to have a look at what is on offer by other designers and high street stores. I really want a pair of sunglasses for Reading festival this summer, so I want something on a budget incase I lose them but also a little fun and on trend. I'm also looking for another classic pair of sunglasses that I can wear for years to come.

The first place I look for fashion inspiration is my muse Marina and I love these round glasses she is wearing here:


Round glasses are a huge trend this summer and are in collections by YSL and Erdem and were seen all over Coachella paired with denim shorts and cropped tops. They also really remind me of Lennon, Gaga and Elton John and who doesn't want to feel like a star? My favourite pair of roound glasses are these ones by YSL

But New Look also have a pair for £4.99, perfect for festivals!

Sporty glasses like the ones by Bolle and Serengeti sunglasses, cat eye and quirky shaped glasses are also bang on trend this season so I'm keeping an eye out for these styles too. I would love a pair of heart shaped sunglasses, I lost my last pair in New Zealand :(

I would also love a pair of classic wayfarer sunglasses like Ray Bans. I love my pastel ones but they don't really go with everything.

I'm very tempted by these Police Sunglasses which I think are very chic.





Do you get a new pair of sunglasses for holidays or get the same pair out every year? It's not like we get much sun in the UK so I wont get to wear them much but I want to make in impact when I do.

  11. I am not liking that round sunglasses. It looks ugly. I don't think I will ever wear something like that. Not my type at all.

  14. I'm notorious for losing and/or breaking sunglasses, so I swear by places like New Look, H&M and Primark for cheap but on-trend shades. I'd love a pair of Ray-Ban wayfarers but I a) couldn't justify the money right now, and b) would be sure to leave them on the train or sit on them!
