In honor of Frankie’s Top 3 Budget Frames for Fashion post here’s five top frames from our luxury brands for those of us looking to treat ourselves, just a little. Of course, when you’re strapped for cash and need to budget, then budget. But when you’ve got some extra dough coming in why buy wine when you can afford champagne?
Originally this was supposed to be compiled of three frames like Frankie’s post, but when there’s 1,409 luxury frames to chose from then naturally I sneaked in an extra two!!
Miu Miu LU 04LV
These gorgeous Miu Miu frames do not hold back in terms of statement glasses and style. They are an ever popular purchase on SelectSpecs and boast eight different colour options (including a siren-esque opal cherry shade.)
Any self-confessed fashionista out there already knows Miu Miu is headed by the current Creative Director for Prada Miuccia Prada (Mario Prada’s granddaughter) and named the brand after her nickname at school. Known for having the bolder and more provocative designs compared to Prada’s traditional and chic tastes their glasses range are no exception. These frames are available for £162 here.
Tiffany & Co. TF2050B
You’d be mistaken to think Tiffany & Co stopped at just luxurious jewellery, oh no the brand actually extends into glasses, watches and stationary too. There’s been so much attention on different trends of frames this summer, however, we must not forget how the ‘glasses arms’ can add a touch of glamour too, which is exactly what this pair do.
For the sophisticated and classy glasses wearer the hint of blue around the frame would suit any hair type or eye colour, but what if you’re not a fan? Then they are also available in a brown Havana colour too. Been saving up for a rainy day? They’re £241.92 and you can take a look here.
Another Italian name which immediately conveys high-fashion gracefulness has got to be Valentino. Undeniably chic, these frames had to make the list for their pretty-in-pink ‘Rose’ frame and the classic bow detail on the arm.
Although this shade may work best for brunettes there are two other colours to choose from; another classic Havana shade to suit everyone and a timeless dark Red, which I reckon would look fantastic on blondes. Take your pick here, for £157.50.
Dolce & Gabbana DG3163
Were you a fan of any of Faith’s post on Dolce & Gabbana’s Top Five Floral Sunglasses? Well there’s good news for you because now you can add a touch of that Italian floral romanticism to your usual glasses with this unforgettable pair.
Dolce & Gabbana takes that thick classic cat eye frame to the next level by adding hand-crafted and hand-applied flowers to the top of the arm, need I say more? Also available in Crystal clear frame, for £164.16 check them out here.
Gucci GG 3677
Finally, but certainly not least, are these classic Gucci frames show us that luxury and fashion doesn’t always have to be about over-sized eye-catching designs but can be modest, timeless pieces wearable for everyday use.
Despite being perhaps the most subtle and simple out of this collection, there’s no lack of poise in their style and they might just be my favourite ones yet. Again, this isn’t your only option and there is a Havana, Fuchsia and Aqua Blue for the more daring. For more details, at £150.42 have a look here.
