The Best Sunglasses for Women This Season

Sunglasses are a must-have accessory whenever the sun is out. Not only do they protect our eyes from the sun, but they are a great way to express your personal style. Here are my must-have sunglasses this SS/12 season.


Black Magic

 These Dior oversized sunglasses will add a touch of sophistication to any outfit this season. The glossy black colourway and thick acetate frame offer a large frame which is great for when you don’t have time for make up! Team with a floral summer dress for an on-trend look this summer. (Dior DIORMITZA2 sunglasses, RRP $320)


Mermaid Muse


These Gucci sunglasses continue the mermaid trend that the catwalks of the largest fashion brands in the world have been flaunting. The arms and sides of the frame feature a gold band to form sections that mirror coral under the ocean. The cream color and large oversized design make these Gucci sunglasses a great option if you’re looking for a bit of drama in your wardrobe. (Gucci GG 3509/S sunglasses, RRP $365)


Color Blast

These MaxMara sunglasses promise to liven up any wardrobe with their teal color and striking design. The large squared frame offers a dramatic color injection, which looks great with a plain maxi dress on the beach or a tailored pant suit for the office. (MaxMara MM ISCHIA I sunglasses, RRP $220)


Vintage Charm


These striking Giorgio Armani sunglasses are your ticket to one of this season’s hottest trends; vintage. The circular design and tortoiseshell color are a key feature in vintage collections in eyewear. Team with a long line ivory blouse and skinny tailored pants with super high shoes for a vintage look. (Giorgio Armani GA 951/S sunglasses, RRP $365)


Always ensure you choose a pair of sunglasses with 100UVA and UVB protection (up to UV400 standards) to make sure your eyes are protected from the sun’s harmful rays.
