Whether you’re shopping for festival season or you’re looking for a new pair of designer frames to see you through the summer, there are so many new trends in 2016 for you to check out.

Here we take a look at 5 key styles that could give your SS16 wardrobe an instant boost of catwalk chic! And keep your eyes peeled ladies, because these trends are not as we’ve known them before. This year, we see some classic looks evolve into something much more exciting…

1. Oversized Sunnies

As ever, the oversized sunglasses look is hot, hot, hot. But wait, hang on a moment before you pick up a classic pair of all black full rim Pradas.  No, we’re not talking about timeless movie star style anymore. The oversized trend has morphed into something spectacular for SS16 and we can’t get enough of it.

Made for the bold and the daring, this trend has one very simple motto: “Go big or go home”. Not only does size matter but so does detail, so opt for something that’s as exaggerated and as flamboyant as you can handle – because it’s all about standing out this season. We love this Miu Miu MU 01RS oversized frame, featuring extended lenses and a glitter design.

2. Visor Sunglasses Trend

From looking like you’ve just come back from the future to looking like you’ve just stepped off the slopes, this trend is all about getting that FULL coverage. Awesome for sun protection in the summer heat and even more awesome for standing out from the crowd.

It’s got a sports luxe feel and this SS16 fashion must-have will double up as a winter sports accessory too. To get the look, go all out with these gorgeous embellished Dolce & Gabbana DG2150B women’s sunglasses, available in 2 colours…

Cat’s eye sunglasses are still a ‘thing’. In fact, not only are they still super hot for SS16 but they’ve turned up the heat with some awesome new styles this season! And the devil’s in the detail, so ditch those old one-colour cat eye frames and mix it up with some geometric lines, some stand-out patterns and super cool colour details.

Go full retro with these Marilyn Monroe THE MARILYN sunglasses, which are available in Red, Black or Silver.

4. Get Geometric

Geometrics have been everywhere this year and this trend works so well with sunglasses. Jazz up your summer eyewear with some funky angles, clean lines, super cool squares and some sexy circles!

Basically, anything that reminds you of your GCSE geometry class is a winner. We particularly love the Fendi eyewear campaign featuring Kendall Jenner and these strikingly futuristic Fendi FF 0041/S sunglasses, available in 7 colours at Select Specs.

As we mentioned for the first trend, this year’s sunglasses style advice is “go big or go home” and Select Specs is totally on board with this. Embellishment is everything this season and no-one can tell you you’re being OTT.

This look is all over the catwalk and you’ll fit right into any fashionista party with these Jimmy Choo VIVY/S frames
