If there’s one girl to get retro eyewear inspiration from on insta, it’s the gorgeous Bella Hadid.
She’s the queen of retro sunglasses and she’s a super fan of the tints. Here are some of our favourite looks to inspire you for the upcoming SS18 season. Time to stock up on shades of every colour, Bella fans!
Tinted and Geometric
Combine your love for retro tints with one of the hottest eyewear looks of the moment; geometric shapes and hexagonal silhouettes. Six or even eight-sided lenses have been taking over runways and have been spotted on everyone from bloggers and journos to celebs and models at LFW, NYFW and Paris or Milan. If you love Bella’s cute and colourful look in this photo, you can steal her style by selecting a geo-inspired frame.
If yellow is a little too ‘out there’ for your taste, you can always opt for a versatile brown tint instead, like these chic Ray-Ban Ray-Ban RB3556N sunglasses which are lightweight and comfortable to wear, and featuring a narrow set lens to keep your super retro.
Orange Tinted Lenses
The bold contrast of orange and white in this look as shared by Bella with her bestie Kendall Jenner is perfect for the festival life. If you’re looking for shades that can complement your summer wardrobe, go for a stand-out shade like orange. In colour psychology, it signifies fun, creativity, vibrancy and youthfulness, adding a real sense of summer to your outfit.
For girls who are afraid to experiment with loud colours even in the warmer months, accessories such as these Univo SR170 frames are the perfect way to inject a little brightness to your life.
Bright Red and Bejewelled
Bright red, and bejewelled for even more impact. This runway look as worn by Bella is not for the shy and retiring. This look is for the fashion confident, for girls who already own all the classic shapes, silhouettes and designs and are looking for something different to up their eyewear game. The bad news is, not everyone can pull it off. But if you’ve cheekbones like the Hadids’ and a strut like you’re FROW material, then this trend has your name written all over it.
This Dolce & Gabbana DG6109 frame is the perfect style steal if you’re digging our Stargirl’s catwalk ensemble for French fashion designer Alexandre Vauthier…
If you’re looking for some fashion-forward frames that are fun and lightweight for the summer, choose a chic trend like cutoff lenses. It’s a great look if you want 100% UV protection for your eyes abroad but prefer a barely-there feeling and shades that don’t steal the spotlight.
There are so many designer eyewear pieces that have the cutoff look right now, including styles in our Miu Miu range, Oliver Peoples, Chloe, and Fendi. But we are crushing on these cool Tom Ford FT0507 sunglasses right now and love their similarity to some of Bella’s fave shades.
