We’re entering into the spring/summer season now and those big winter coats and knitted scarves and hats can soon go into storage. Festivals, holidays, cruises and summer events are at the forefront of our minds now. So it’s time to update our wardrobes. This includes accessories and your eyewear collection. Trending right now are clear/white sunglasses, a look that’s dominated the catwalks for a number of seasons. So if you still haven’t got your hands on a pair of these fun, funky shades, it’s time to invest.
Last year, transparent wayfarers were a big hit, especially when teamed with mirror or flash lenses. These cool see-through frames featured a fun, funky and edgy sports luxe look, and were great for festivals, outdoor pursuits and casual wear. But this year, we see a much more sophisticated selection of sunglasses for women taking on this fashion forward style. The clear/white sunglasses trend gets a chic revival in SS17 and here are some of our favourites so far…
Bobbi Brown THE AVA/S
These fab shades are a grown up version of the iconic transparent wayfarer, shades that have become hugely popular in men’s and women’s fashion. With a thick full rim, deep lenses and a slight butterfly silhouette, they are much more elegant than last year’s wayfarer sunnies. These are so wonderfully feminine and they will frame and flatter your face.
DVF DVF831S CARINE
It really doesn’t get more chic than DVF. Diane Von Furstenberg is an iconic designer and her collections always focus heavily on femininity. These beautiful shades feature a mix of light gold tone metal and stunning marbled white arms which extend to the frame front added style. Such a classy take on the white sunglasses trend!
White marbling is such a luxe look. If you want the perfect mix of edgy and high end, these Dior frames are a must for spring / summer. The gold tone metal finish adds a touch of class whilst the rose gold lenses bring a sense of contemporary chic to your look.
Vera Wang Luxe NASTYA
These Vera Wang sunglasses are so much fun. They combine transparent acetate for on-trend appeal, whilst combining this season’s hottest print. If you love classic houndstooth, these shades have the perfect fashion forward twist to bring your wardrobe up to date.
For something totally refined, it has to be these beautifully crafted and elegantly adorned white/gold sunglasses from Chopard. The design is timeless so they will never go out of style, and the intricate metal work will make them stand out with any outfit. Great for special occasions when you need to dress to impress!
Classically stylish and easy to style, these Infinity S2631 frames from our budget collection are an eyewear staple for anyone who loves the clear / white colourway. Oversized lenses bring a bit of glam to the table whilst marble detailing on the arms create a refined, high end finish (without the high end price tag).
Another gorgeous design from Dior, these designer shades have a futuristic edge. But with minimal styling and just a small splash of colour against an all white frame, they are so easy to style with your day to day wardrobe. On trend sunglasses with versatile features for all occasions. So elegant, super chic.
