Love them or hate them, the Kardashians are an unlimited source of eyewear inspiration – just take a look at our recent lowdown on the Kardashian family’s sunglasses. Kim loves her over-sized square frames and Kourtney favours a classic aviator, but when it comes to eyewear trends there’s one sister who’s always wearing the latest style.
Youngest member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, Kylie Jenner seems to have a different pair of shades every week. Just take a quick look at her Instagram page @kyliejenner to see what we mean.
This week, Kylie proved her fashion prowess when she showed off a pair of statement shield sunglasses.
In a snap that she shared with her 59 million Instagram followers, Kylie wore a pair of huge shield sunglasses with transparent blue-tinted lenses that covered most of her face. Featuring a futuristic design, they were decorated with metallic frames and stud detail around the edges. She paired these amazing shades with a totally on trend baggy denim bomber jacket and a Chanel quilted backpack for a luxe finishing touch.
Kylie was obviously very pleased with her new look, as she shared two different photos of her ensemble.
Shield Sunglasses: Top 3 Styles for SS16
Statement sheild sunglasses are one of the hottest styles of the year, so we’re not surprised that Kylie has snapped up a pair. The it-shades of the season were first spotted on the spring 2016 catwalks and now some of our favourite eyewear brands have included them in their latest collections.
Shield sunglasses have a contemporary look and add an instant dose of coolness to any outfit. They’re the perfect way to update your eyewear collection for 2016. So, if you want to take inspiration from Kylie Jenner’s latest eyewear look, here are our top three picks of shield sunglasses available at SelectSpecs.
Porsche Design P8479
The Porsche Design P8479 sunglasses are an almost identical dupe to Kylie’s shield sunglasses. New in from Porsche’s 2016 eyewear collection, they feature the same rounded, over-sized shield design with transparent lenses and metallic arms. They’re even finished wtih a studded frame. The P8479 sunglasses are available in a range of colours including this titanium and grey blue option for a cool and contemporary look.
Another new style for 2016 are the Prada PR 57LS sunglasses. These designer shades have a glamorous look, with wider arms and Prada’s iconic branding on the sides. The large wrap-around shield lenses have a blue tint that’s complemented by a gunmetal grey frame. Perfect if you want to make a style statement like Kylie.
Ray Ban RB3211
Last but not least, we have a trend-setting design from legendary eyewear brand, Ray-Ban. Like Kylie’s stylish sunnies, the Ray-Ban RB3211 sunglasses feature a futuristic look, with a curved, one-piece shield lens in a blue gradient effect and black metallic frames. A simple but stylish way to wear the trend.
