The Summer is well underway and sunglasses are a must-have item, whether you’re enjoying the British heatwave or jetting off on your travels. One of this year’s hottest looks is to use blocks of solid colour across your outfit. The great thing about this look is you can use existing pieces in your wardrobe. Try sticking to one or two colours from top to toe. Primary colours are great but you could also go for bright pink, green or orange. Don’t forget to include your accessories and nail colours. Eyewear is an easy way to incorporate the look. Work this seasons colour-pop trend and refresh your wardrobe with some new sunnies in colours that look good enough to eat!
Many stylish celebrities including Cat Deeley and Cheryl Cole are colour blocking fans and here I have found three who have cleverly worked their sunglasses into the look.
Singer and fashionista Rihanna is often pictured wearing brightly coloured sunglasses, and these orange over sized cats eye shape shades suit her down to a tee. The contrasting green outfit brings the colour out even more.
Orange looks amazing on warm skin tones and dark hair. For a similar look, try these TM015S sunglasses from designer Opposit in colour 02 Orange/Pink. At under £70, you don’t need to have Rihanna’s bank account to be able to look as good as her.
Singer Gwen Stefani was spotted wearing these quirky round sunglasses in bright blue. They compliment her pale blonde hair and cool skin tone perfectly. Even off duty she has obviously coordinated her outfit and stuck to a blue palette.
Achieve the same look with these sunnies from the Opposit Designer Sunglasses brand TM507S in 12 Azure. They’re also available in lots of other bright colours including red and green. Pair them with jeans, a vest top and a classic red lipstick.
Model/socialite Jodie Kidd was recently seen looking stylish in some summery yellow sunglasses. The aviator style brings out her strong cheekbones. She has gone for a pale orange dress and bag to complete the fresh and youthful look.
For a similar style, try these Gucci aviators GG1030 in VHCFK yellow. You can also find them in green and red. Pair with a nude lipstick to show these eye-catching shades off to the full.
