style: my sunglasses collection

Something a bit different today – a blog post and video rolled into one! I thought I’d share my current sunglasses collection as they’ve got to be my favourite summer accessory. I’m never without them, even if they’re just an addition to my hair rather than my face. So, what’s what?

 

The Classic (Rayban)

 

These are my staples – classic Raybans Wayfarer’s. I got these in April for my birthday and they’ve not left my face since. They go with most things and you can’t go wrong with black.

 

The South Of France (Dorothy Perkins)

 

I wasn’t sure what to call these but there’s just something about them that reminds me of chic French women sitting outside cafes in Nice or St Tropez. I like that they’re paler than all my others – they look great with tan accessories, and they’re big without being obnoxious.

 

The Willy Wonka’s (Brown – Missguided, Black – ASOS)

 

Now, if we’re talking obnoxious – these are them. I started with the black pair and soon upgraded to a tortoiseshell too. I can’t get enough of these. Ridiculous? Yes. But I love them!

 

The Designer (Marc Jacobs)

 

My oldest pair, and oh-so-classic. These babies have been around for about 8 years and I still wear them. Perfect for sophisticated outfits and events when you need a bit of understated glam.

 

The Cat Eye (River Island)

 

These are definitely a fun pair of glasses – they look awesome with an all black outfit. I love the shape and pattern!
