This Summer floral designs seem to be everywhere, from graphic modern prints to vintage ditsy patterns, on clothing, bags and even sunglasses. Fashion house Dolce and Gabbana’s designs often feature floral motifs, including their Spring/Summer ’14 Almond Flowers Collection, which was inspired by the native almond blossoms of Sicily. Flowery accents give a feminine, romantic feel to an outfit. Here I will be taking on the difficult task of choosing my top five flowery sunglasses from this iconic brand.
1.DG4230. From the Limited Edition Almond Flowers Collection, these sunglasses feature intricate hand-painted metal blossoms and tiny gold leaves. The butterfly shape black acetate frame and gradient grey lenses give a chic, sophisticated edge. You could not fail to turn heads in these!

2. DG4231. Also from the Almond Flowers Collection, this style is available in a number of gorgeous colours. Pictured is my favourite, the red peach flowers option 28458G, which has grey gradient lenses. With the wayfarer style frame and bold floral design they have a lovely 1950’s feel.

3. DG4118. These unique shades come in a stylish grey frame adorned with contrasting yellow flowers, and grey lenses, in an over sized, retro shape. They would look amazing with a flowing maxi dress. Don’t be afraid to clash prints!
