Sunglasses are important all year round if you want to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays, but let’s face it, they are much easier to style in the summer than in the winter.
We all know that wearing sunglasses indoors is bit ridiculous (we’re looking at you Snoop Dogg and Justin Bieber circa 2013) and when it comes to rocking a pair of shades in the winter months, the dilemma can be the same.
So how can you wear your sunnies without looking like a total plonker this AW16?
Sunglasses can look on point in the colder months, just as long you as stick to a few easy rules. Teamed with the right ensemble for the right occasions and outdoor conditions, they can look pretty seamless.
Here are 5 quick style tips to help you nail the winter sunglasses look for all year round protection.
Tip 1. Go for Classic Aviators
When it comes to winter sunglasses, go with the classics. They’re easy to style and they go with just about everything in your wardrobe. When in doubt, just pull out your timeless Ray Bans which look great for everything from winter sports and driving to sunny winter mornings when you’re walking the dog.
Go for these stylish Ray Ban RB3025 Aviator sunglasses with a grey or brown lens which is best for winter conditions.
Tip 2. Style All Black Shades
Keep it slick and go with an all black look. It’s the ultimate hue for the autumn/winter period and will look so stylish and sophisticated with your AW wardrobe.

Tip 3. Choose Muted Colours
AW16 colour trends include deep earth tones such as deep burgundy, olive green, dark teal and varying brown hues. Avoid summer fluorescents and go for something earthy instead such as these Celine unisex sunglasses which feature a dark mulberry hue.
Tip 4. Mirror It Up
Mirrored lenses are great for winter time because they help to reflect light, reduce glare and improve visual clarity. But they also make fantastic accessories, adding a fashion forward edge to your day to day outfits.

Tip 5. Get Winter Ski Style
If you really want to look the part, go for a ski goggle style frame; not only will you look like you’re ready to hit the slopes like a pro, but you will get improved coverage from the wide lens, making outdoor vision all the more manageable in the winter sun.
