Erykah Badu Eyewear Style

erykah badu eyewear style

Erykah Badu recently caught the attention of Vogue with an extreme pair of sunglasses. The shades were so elaborate that they could have been mistaken for a hat – but Vogue writer Rachel Hahn assured us they were indeed a very futuristic-looking set of frames.

Her eyewear choice was the Ogun Goon Badu Sheild and Knife (yes, it comes with a knife) by designer Soull Kehinde Fundsworth. And she looked too cool for words in her instagram post [insert words here].

This isn’t the first time that the singer has turned heads with her fashion choices. Back in 2014, she was the face of the Givenchy eyewear campaign, and she’s regularly spotted in big oversized shades and huge statement hats.  She’s a massive inspiration when it comes to accessories, and we worship her wardrobe motto of ‘the bigger, the better’.

Here are some of our favourite Erykah Badu eyewear looks to copy…


Flat Top Visor Shades

From VB and Cardi B to Gigi Hadid, it seems the queens of the celeb world are all over this trend. Full coverage is the way to go, and we see everything from the popular flash lens or the retro tint to simple, chic and black. The finished deal is sporty luxe, and adds instant edge to any outfit.

These larger than life bug-eyed frames, made of amethyst crystals, are everything. Festival season will be here before we know it, and big gemstones should be top of your shopping list.

The crystals on Erykah’s sunglasses are genuine (with healing properties and everything), but you can copy her style with some gem studded look-a-likes from Dolce & Gabbana…

Extreme cateye is the trend to know right now, so these Erykah Badu sunglasses are hot. We also love the Mother of Pearl design, which adds instant luxury to her look.

Tortoiseshell is one of the biggest style trends for 2019, and you’ll see classic tortoiseshell prescription glasses, as well as sunglasses, making a huge comeback for both men and women.

The exaggerated rims on these frames are just like Erykah Badu’s, and they are flattering on all skin tones…

We love these big round lenses, designed to make your eyes pop. Draw attention to your peepers, frame your face perfectly, and upgrade a dull wardrobe with a burst of blue. This is geek chic amplified. The perfect choice for anyone who wants to move away from all black everything. Plus, they’ve had the Badu stamp of approval.

These Lapö LAAA082 frames are a great style copy…

The Retro Aviator

Forget the metal aviator shades. Right now it’s all about the oversized retro frame. Plastic and acetate only. And deep set lenses to give you full coverage. For extra retro cool points, get a yellow lens tint like our eyewear goddess Erykah.

You can get the look with these Ducati DA5005 sunglasses, available in 4 on-trend colour combinations…
