Festival season is just around the corner now. We can almost smell it. We’ve waited with baited breath for this year’s festival lineups and payment plans for the big ones are already in full swing!
Whether you’re doing the classic Glasto weekender or you’re getting crazy at Bestival, no festival wardrobe is complete without a pair of fancy, festi-worthy and flamboyant pair of sunglasses to keep your eyes protected and ensemble lookin’ fly. Whether it’s for one night only or a four night affair, every festival goer deserves at least one pair of awesome fashion glasses to set their wardrobe on fire.
Here are some of the must-have festival sunglasses that are on my SS16 designer wishlist:
Perfect for: Secret Garden Party
It’s flamboyant enough for festival fancy dress yet it’s classy enough for everyday wear during the summer months. Featuring a unique floral-esque, jungle-inspired foliage print complete with wild butterflies, these designer sunnies represent the sort of girl who’s looking to get back in touch with her primitive, feral side and looking to have a good time wherever she goes.
The oversized lenses will cover hair-of-the-dog eyes like a pro and the slightly muted tones will ensure that these Valentino V707SB sunglasses will be easy to style with any outfit.
Giorgio Armani AR6005BZ
Perfect for: Beach festivals, festivals abroad.
This Giorgio Armani pair with winged design means that you will get added protection from the sun; not only will they protect your eyes from harmful UV rays but they’ll ensure that light cannot get in through any angle, reducing problems of glare and vision impairment. And when you’re partying on a beach for hours on end, it’s important to be able to see that sunset properly…..or that hot guy next to the palm tree…..or that cocktail bar in the distance.
But the winged design isn’t just for practicality and excellent visual clarity in a sunny destination – they feature a super sexy sequin design so you’ll get top marks in glamour too! The Giorgio Armani AR6005BZ Sequin Winged sunglasses are available in 2 gorgeous colours.
Dolce & Gabbana DG4253
Perfect for: Reading/Leeds Festival
There are fewer glasses quite as spectacular as these! If you’re looking for absolute showstoppers, there really is no holding back with the SS16 Dolce & Gabbana collection; from Renaissance decadence to 60s retro, every Dolce & Gabbana eyewear collection tells a story. And these floral embellished sunglasses with 3D detailing will scream ‘look at me’ wherever you go.
The Dolce & Gabbana DG4253 sunglasses come with deep set square lenses to hide those I-partied-all-night eyes and 3D flowers to make your outfit stand out. Choose from 2 colours designs.
Perfect for: Wireless Festival
If you’re going to be channelling 80s disco or 90s rave, these Valentino studded sunglasses are the on-point festival buy this year. They are all season specs so you won’t be bound to summer events and they feature a super cool dirty disco look that will take your wardrobe all the way back to Studio 54 in 70s/80s New York or the notorious Hacienda rave scene of Manchester.
The Valentino V690SR studded sunglasses offer a good all-round look for any music event in 2016 and they’ll look just as fab teamed with leather as they would teamed with denim. Very versatile!
Fendi FF 0153/S
Perfect for: Anywhere
You’ll be spoilt for choice with the latest Fendi collection here at Select Specs. From funky pop art inspired styles and geometric designs to gem studded creations that will blow your mind, SS16 Fendi doesn’t disappoint for festival season.
