With the world racing to reach normalcy and the sun shining to tan us silly, this summer season is a time when we can step out, dress up and just be outdoors again!

Sporty & Chic 

When the fields & courts inspire fashion, everyone and we mean, everyone stops and stares. From a sleek aesthetic to functional features, sporty sunglasses that can take you from a morning workout to brunch are surely a great pick. Think light-weight materials, shields, 100% UV protection and mirrored lenses.

Tints Everywhere 

Color galorethe trend for tint is one that is lighting up Instagram feeds all-over the world. We suggest opting for classic shades that are elevated with pops of color. This helps prevent that over-the-top aesthetic that goes onto becoming inspiration for memes and adds a playful touch that says you are clearly ready for summer. A fine example would be a pair of aviators flaunting a cheerful hue.

The Modern Cat Eye 

The cat-eye is undoubtedly one style that never ceases to be relevant. Summer 2021 sees a fun take on the everlasting style—sharp angles, narrower frames, exaggerated temples and more. Seek out these rather feline shades and instantly spruce up your outfits.

Chunky Is The Way to Go

Sunglasses with thick acetate frames & bright hues are the new must-have for the summer months. These go perfectly with straw hats, dazzling jewelry and even look great when they are tucked into the neckline of your shirts. Look to the likes of Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Gucci and more for this essential summer eyewear.

Really Round, Really Retro 

A style reminiscent of the good old days as well as last month’s Vogue, round sunglasses continue to be cool. As a rule of thumb, these frames are best suited for angular faces with sharp jawlines and high cheekbones. But as in fashion, broken rules lead to something fabulous! We would nudge those with softer features to always be on the hunt for the perfect—really round—pair, cause it exists.
