While sunglasses look great with shorts, sundresses and a tan when the sun is shining, they’re not a summer-only accessory. After all, when you find a fabulous pair of shades, why wear them for just a few short weeks of the year?
With autumn in full swing, don’t let your favourite shades gather dust. Not only will sunglasses reduce glare and keep your eyes protected from those surprising bursts of autumn sunshine, but they will add a cool edge to every outfit.
Not sure how to style your sunglasses when temperatures drop? Here are three stylish ways to wear sunglasses through the autumn season.
1. Cool and Casual
First up, we have a laid back look that’s perfect for casual days, walking in the park and kicking through crisp leaves. This outfit starts out with a year round classic – the iconic Ray Ban RB3016 Clubmaster with black horn-rimmed frames and green-tinted lenses.
These fashion favourites will add a cool, vintage vibe to your look. Team them with on-trend ripped boyfriend jeans for comfort and add a knitted jumper and a snuggly scarf to keep you warm and cosy. A black biker jacket will add a tough edge to this outfit. Finish with a relaxed pair of trainers for an everyday autumn look that’s hard not to love.
2. Cosy Chic
Wood-framed glasses such as the amazing Arbor FX-20 Bamboo Frame shades are made for the autumn and go perfectly with the warm colours and fabrics of the season. The simple wayfarer shape gives them a modern look and the anti-glare lenses are great for those early autumn sunsets.
For a look that’s chic and cosy, pair wooden shades with matching neutral knits and classic skinny jeans. A fluff plaid scarf is perfect for cuddling up in while elegant boots and a handbag make this an ideal outfit for shopping days, coffee dates and trips to the pumpkin patch!
3. Retro-inspired Glam
Our last autumnal look is for the glamour-pusses who want to look fabulous all year round. Inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s iconic style, this outfit is perfect for wearing with retro-inspired cat eye shades such as the Prada PR 08RS sunglasses.
These elegant shades feature rounded cat eye frames and a glossy black finish. For this look, pair your shades with a classic little black dress and matching patent pumps. A stylish mac and an umbrella make this outfit appropriate for rainy autumn days while pretty jewelry adds a luxurious touch.
So, which is your favourite autumn-ready outfit and sunglasses combo? Are you cool and casual with a classic pair of clubmasters or will you be rocking the retro cat-eye look this autumn?
