As fictional fashion queen Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada once said, ‘Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.’
Well they may not be groundbreaking, but there’s no denying that floral prints are a fashion staple that dominate the catwalks each season. Just take a look at Dolce & Gabbana’s latest sartorial offerings.
Floral fashion is fun, flirty and perfect for every occasion, from casual sunny days to summer weddings and everything in between. Ranging from delicate floral pieces to bold, abstract flower-printed accessories, it’s versatile, easy to wear and it suits everyone.
Recently though, we’ve noticed the floral trend cropping up in the world of eyewear. From everyday specs to stylish statement sunglasses, glasses are getting a beautiful botanical makeover with pretty petal-inspired prints and feminine embellishments.
Floral eyewear styles are perfect for adding a pretty look to any outfit and, unlike more fleeting trends, will look great year after year.
So, let’s take a look at some of the best glasses and sunglasses styles for SS16.
Dolce & Gabbana DG3224
Dolce & Gabbana are the masters when it comes to florals. The designer brand are world-famous for their amazing patterns, prints and embellishments, and their glasses are no different.
Part of the new SS16 collection, the Dolce & Gabbana 3224 glasses feature a subtle take on the floral trend, with two delicate white rose son the side of each frame. With a classic rectangular shape, they’re a sophisticated choice for a summertime look.
Lui Jo LJ2642
If ditsy florals and pastels aren’t your thing, brighten up your every day look with a pair of bold, blooming glasses such as the LJ2642 glasses. From our new favourite fashion brand Lui Jo, these glasses are perfect for nailing the floral trend but only if you’re not afraid of a little colour. Classic round frames are finished in an edgy and eye-catching purple, blue and pink flower pattern that’s sure to turn heads.
Looking for a more subtle take on flower-power glasses? Then look no further. The LAUREN glasses from Cosmopolitan’s eyewear collection feature classic dark red metal frames on the front and a dainty floral-inspired print on the sides. These specs offer a stylish nod to the floral trend without being too in-your-face, making them an ideal choice for the office.
Dolce & Gabbana DG4252
Florals and sunglasses are a match made in heaven; after all, they’re both summer favourites. New for SS16 is the gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana DG4252 sunglasses. These sunnies are a stylish new take on that classic Audrey Hepburn look, featuring over-sized black frames that are decorated with gorgeous red flower embellishments on each side.
While the DG4252 sunglasses are definitely an investment pair, their statement style will never get old. They’re perfect for an instant dose of glamour that will complete any outfit.
Lui Jo LJ630S
While florals are a classic print, they don’t have to be predictable. The Lui Jo LJ630S sunglasses combines retro round frames with a pretty floral print for a look that’s so on trend for SS16.
