How Ellen DeGeneres Makes Eyewear Look Effortless

Ellen DeGeneres ED Eyewear

Partly to celebrate the launch of her new ED Eyewear collection (and mostly because how can you not love her?!) We’ve rounded up some of Ellen DeGeneres’ best eyewear looks.

Whether its sophisticated sunnies or geek-chic glasses, she knows how to pull it all of with style.

Amber Frames

Seeking Shade with ED! ??

It’s only right to start the list with some of Ellen’s own. These cute round sunglasses from Ellen’s new ED sunglasses collection could not be more perfect for this time of year. The warm, amber coloured frames are ready for leaf crunching and pumpkin carving, but still look hot enough to make the most of the summer days we have left.

If you fancy some frames like this but can’t quite justify a trip across the pond to get them, why not try these burgundy beauties from MAX&Co? The round lenses give these a cute look and the slight point to the temple keeps them feminine.

The orange tones to the pair pictured are perfect for warming up an outfit, but if you feel like something a little cooler, they’re also available in green, grey and marble. Find them at MAX&Co 272/S.

Colour Match


Introducing ED Eyewear: A good pair of #sunglasses top off a great look! #EDbyEllen A photo posted by ED by Ellen DeGeneres (@edbyellen) on Jul 13, 2016 at 10:36am PDT

Ellen looks every inch the blue eyed beauty here, showing off another pair of her ED sunglasses. Teaming blue eyes with blue glasses is a brilliant idea for making your eye colour pop.

A clean plastic frame keeps this look chic and modern (and anyone that can colour match their sunnies to their shirt that perfectly, frankly deserves a medal.)

If you feel like doing a bit of eye colour enhancing yourself, why not try these Thin Lorin frames by G-Star

The petrol blue frames and dark lenses will help lift a grey autumn wardrobe, and if you fancy peeking over the top of them like Ellen, the dark hues of these frames are sure to compliment blue eyes. If you’re a brown eyed girl and you feel like you’re missing out then fear not, these frames are also available in butterscotch and blonde havana, to bring out the warmth in your peepers.

Ellen looks great in a pair of aviators alongside her wife Portia who looks every inch the film star in a pair of oversized shades. As this is a celebration of Ellen we’ll try to focus on her! Aviators are a classic, if you don’t have some already you really should invest in a pair, they bring effortless cool to pretty much any look.

These aviators from POLA are the perfect year round accessory. Slim plastic frames keep these sunglasses looking neat and feminine, whilst a big lens gives off all the right rockstar vibes. Stripping the aviator down to basics means these frames will go with everything and the excuse you’ve all been waiting for?

They’re less than fifty quid, you can thank me later. Find these at POLA by OPAL POIS045.

If you weren’t already feeling like catching the last bit of summer sun, then you might be now. Ellen and Portia look beautifully beachy in this St Barth’s selfie. Ellen’s clear frames are really on trend right now and paired with the dark lenses and a straw hat, help her outfit to look fresh and summery.

These Savannah sunglasses would work so well with a top to toe monochrome look, the clear frames in a wayfarer style make these the easiest thing to pair with any outfit. Wayfarers are a classic that is never out of fashion and the rubberised frames make these sunglasses hard-wearing as well as fashionable.

The lenses offer the highest available UV protection and are prescription ready. Better still, these are just ten pounds, find them at Savannah S8122.

Two Tone

Who needs makeup when you look this good with just a pair of glasses on? In this Saturday selfie Ellen and Portia look fresh faced and fabulous. Ellen’s two tone brown and black glasses look one part earthy, one part geek-chic paired with a denim shirt.

If two tone glasses sound like they could be your next style, why not try these frames by Hallmark. This colourway echoes Ellen’s earthy style, but with a splash of flirty pink thrown in. Multicoloured frames are brilliant for matching with accessories, a casual outfit with a pink stiletto or lipstick works really well.

If you don’t feel too ‘matchy-matchy’ then choosing a neutral base with a flash of bright is a good way to add a subtle touch of colour without feeling over the top.

These frames are available in three different colour ways, all brown bases with a highlight of pink, blue or grey. Fancy getting your hands on a pair? Find them at Hallmark 8203.
