With a new year comes that all familiar feeling. The itch to change things and start over, whether that be your lifestyle or the way you look. If you’re searching for a way to spruce up your style, one of the easiest routes to a new you is a fabulous new pair of glasses. And we don’t mean an upgrade on your old favourite style…we’re talking statement eyewear that will totally transform your look.
Sure, there’s a time and a place for pared-back, sensible specs, but if you really want to stand out from the crowd this year, statement glasses are the perfect way to shake up your look. If you usually opt for classic black glasses, choose a bold coloured pair instead. Or, if you’ve worn the same old style of shades for years, why not mix things up with a cool cat eye style or retro-inspired frame?
So, let’s take a look at some of the best statement specs and sunglasses available at SelectSpecs that will overhaul your style and give you a new lease of life in 2016.
Cool Coloured Cat Eye Glasses
What better way to freshen up your look than with a pair of bold and beautiful coloured glasses? If you’re stuck in a rut of dull black and brown glasses, a new hue is an instant way to change up your style and will also brighten up your face for a flattering new look. Those who’re feeling brave and love a little bit of retro-inspired fashion will fall head over heels for these pretty pink cat eye frames. The Miu Miu MU 01MV glasses feature a vintage-style shape in a cool candy pink shade. But don’t worry if pink isn’t your thing – we have a range of coloured glasses in a rainbow of hues available online.
Stand-Out Shaped Sunglasses
Some glasses are so special that they just don’t fit into a category and the Prada PR 27NS sunglasses are one of those pairs. These eye-catching shades feature over-sized round frames, but their most fabulous feature is their stunning swirled arms which are amazingly unique. These dreamy sunglasses have a retro vibe and will add a glamorous touch to any outfit. An unusual alternative to classic styles and run-of-the-mill shapes.
Fab Fashion-Forward Frames
Want to up your style game and become a bona fide fashionista in 2016? Then start with a pair of stylish stand-out specs such as these bold beauties. The Fendi FF0030 glasses feature a contemporary-meets-retro look with uniquely shaped frames and metal detail on the arms. They’re available in a range of colours too, from this chic soft green shade to grey and orange.
Sassy Swarovski-Covered Shades
Do sunglasses get much more statement than this? We think not. If you want to shake up your style, show off your wild side with these amazing snake-arm shades. The Roberto Cavalli RC890S sunglasses are crafted from silver metal and feature coiled snakes on each side while Swarovski crystal embellishments add a hint of subtle sparkle. One things certain, you’re sure to get noticed in this daring sunnies.
Striking Circular Specs
Finally, if your usual glasses style revolves rigidly around rectangular and square specs, break out of the box and mix things up with one of this year’s hottest shapes – the round frame. Inspired by retro designs, round frames are everywhere and will add an on-trend touch to your everyday style. We love the Miu Miu MU 06NV glasses which combine circular frames with a timeless tortoiseshell finish. And the best thing about statement glasses like these is that they work best with simple outfits, which means that dressing is a doddle!
