Over the course of the weekend, I made it my mission to shoot some of the key eyewear trends I spotted at Fashion Central at the 2014 Telstra Perth Fashion Festival. With one day of excellent weather, sunglasses were out in full force! Read on to see what trends to look out for this summer.
There are Clearly (see what I did there!?) two stand out styles for sunglasses among the style set.
It’s all about big block frames in black, tortoiseshell or with bold white rims and the classic Retro-Wingtip shape (typically what I sport, as they really are the most flattering shape). I loved the tortoiseshell pairs seen on the runway at Hello Parry -think Jackie O in a modernised shape. I am loving these ones by Derek Cardigan. If you spotted the rather elegant Jack Taylor above sporting the black frames in the blue suit and hat, I have to tell you, he is one very clued up 14 year old blogger. I know, I know. 14!
The second stand-out sunglasses style is coloured reflective glasses in all of their fun-loving summer cool. The brilliant part is that you can mix and match the coloured lenses to add a pop of colour to an otherwise monochrome outfit. I have worn a pair of these before for a shoot, but I gotta get onto it and snap some up. Now to find some in blue, green, red, yellow or purple?? How to decide?! I love these ones and this pair! For me this summer, these are the ultimate and the proof is clearly on the streets.
Frame Style: LOVE L746 in Brown Tortoiseshell
