There’s a lot to be said for French style. Some consider it the pinnacle of dressing well, while others see it as a fantasy just out of reach.
Just as much about what you wear as how you wear it, Gallic dressing is hard to master.
But, once you have it down to a T, your style will change for the better.
In order to prove that anyone can achieve the look, we’ve come up with a round-up of our favourite sunglasses from the best French fashion houses that are certain to give your outfits that ‘Je ne sais quoi.’
One of the most coveted French fashion brands, Chloe is one of those labels whose entire collections are feminine, bohemian, and modern.
Exemplary of these traits are Chloe’s Carlina sunglasses.
A signature shape by the brand, these frames combine retro with contemporary detailing.
The results are sunglasses bound to ensure all eyes are on you.
Round, oversized, and dramatic, Carlina sunglasses are accented with concentric circles around the lenses, adjustable nose pads, and engraved logos at the temples, all while offering 100% UVA and UVB protection.
What’s more, they’re available in a selection of colours and finishes, from on-trend rose gold to classic grey.
The go-to brand for French style aficionados looking for strong, sexy frames that make them feel powerful and confident; Celine is one of those labels always making waves in the industry.
When it comes to eyewear, it’s clear to see why.
The Celine CL 41377/S frames have long been a firm favourite with those in the know, which is why you should invest in a pair and add them to your accessories lineup.
Characterised by a distinctive straight edge at the top of the frame with aviator-shaped lenses, this style is instantly recognisable because you won’t find another pair of sunglasses like them.
Plus, they’re made from acetate and feature tinted lenses that offer UVA and UVB protection, as well as logo branding at the temples, so everyone knows exactly which French fashion house’s sunnies you’re sporting.
First made famous by Audrey Hepburn and her oh-so-chic fashion choices in films such as Sabrina and Breakfast At Tiffany’s, Givenchy is the go to label for classic and elegant French style.
Our recommendation from the brand are these thick-framed sunglasses.
The fast-track ticket to looking modern and relevant, these sunnies provide an irreverent take on a classic shape, so they’re just what you need in order to reflect your style confidence.
We love the combination of colrways to choose from, as well as the sleek logo details that adorn the temples and extend down the arms.
They’re the perfect combination of retro and contemporary, i.e. what Givenchy does best.
