Holi is a Hindu spring festival celebrated globally, it is also dubbed the festival of colours or even the festival of love. Quite like the idea of May Day, the festival is meant to signify the beginning of spring, the end of winter, and a celebration of life, love and renewal. Sounds good right?
Well, we thought we’d bring it to life with a special celebration of colour of our very own! So here’s a list of some vibrant sunnies for you to don at the next festival of your choice, or just in your day to day life, because, let’s face it, colours just have a way of making you smile, don’t they?
While spring starts officially in the UK on March 20th this year, Holi is typically celebrated a bit earlier, falling on March 2nd in 2018, and although it may not feel like spring quite yet, why not get in the mood early with these vivid and colourful looks.
Blue is a peaceful colour that brings on ideas of the sea and sky, and what brings on the idea of spring more than clear blue skies eh?
We adore the sky-blue hue of these Guess GU3027 frames, which are guaranteed to add a pop of colour to any ensemble and are the perfect accessory to throw on at your next festival, for the most glam boho look you ever did see. Pair with an oversized white printed T-shirt dress for bonus style points!
While the original lady in red isn’t wearing sunnies, we thought we’d make an exception here as these Versace VE4334 are so fabulous!
Throw these on with anything from a matching bandanna, jeans and a shaggy jacket, to a little black dress, or even a red one if you dare. There’s no brighter colour than fiery red, so embrace the colourful side of life, this Holi season.
Even though white is seen more as the absence of colour than its existence, these crisp Marc Jacobs MARC 223/S sunglasses still make us think of a beautiful spring day, fluffy white clouds and not a care in the world. They will also look amazing after being covered with coloured powder!
These sunnies are effortlessly glam and statement worthy, pair them with your choice of festival attire or errand running kicks for a look that is as classy as it is bright.
Green may not be your go-to colour when you think of sunnies, however, it should be this spring!
These Givenchy GV 7012/S sunglasses are sporty, bright and beautiful. The perfect casual twist to any outfit, and will shockingly go with a myriad of colours, from white, brown, black and of course green, to even shades of yellow. Be careful to match the shades up together or wear them further apart in your ensemble, so yellow shoes with green sunnies, and you’re all set to be festive.
Get your yellow on in these MAX&Co. 326/S angular shades, and really bring the bright standout vibes to your look of choice. These sunglasses look perfect with neutrals, let them be the star of the show this Holi season.
Pink just has a way of making any look instantly flirty, feminine and fun! Get your hands on some of these Ray-Ban RB3580N cat eye beauties, and be the belle of the ball.
Pair with flared jeans, a crop-top in a contrasting colour, and a long line matching coat for a 70’s vibe that’s rocking, and the perfect look to welcome spring.
Now it is time to go celebrate, sunnies and all!
