Simple, stylish and utterly timeless. Gold will always be a favourite in eyewear and accessories. Worn as a statement, a gold metal finish can add instant glamour and sophistication to your outfit, whilst also remaining elegant and classic. In SS19, we see a metallic comeback. From gold aviators and gold cateye frames to sunglasses that are totally extra with blingy embellishments, there are so many ways you can get the golden glow this summer.
With festival season and holiday season looming, it’s time to add a splash of gorgeous gold to your accessories drawer. Here are some of our favourite gold metal sunglasses for women to buy in SS19.
Round Aviators in a Gold Metal Frame
If you’re looking for a pair of sunnies that are worthy of the gram, these Givenchy GV 7048/S frames are the perfect pre-holiday purchase. Round aviators have received the stamp of approval from every Instagram model going, including Kendall Jenner and Team Hadid, so snap away at those selfies.
Champagne Gold Sunglasses by Bvlgari
Not quite rose and not quite yellow, these soft pink-gold sunglasses channel champagne brunches and glitzy yacht parties. If you’re going somewhere high-status this season, don’t forget to pack these Bvlgari BV6092B sunglasses for extra currency. They fit right in at any VIP lounge!
Gold Steampunk Inspired Sunglasses
Go industrial-chic with these steampunk sunglasses from Chloe. They feature a luxurious gold metal frame front design, smoky grey lenses, and studded leather wings for unique charm. The Chloe CE148SL frames are the stand-out accessory of the summer, ideal for festivals and every travel adventure you have planned.
Miu Miu Gold Butterfly Lenses
Do you have a square face? A broad jawline? Or a wide forehead? The butterfly glasses shape is perfect for you (but it’s also great on other face shapes too). These intricately designed Miu Miu MU 56RS gold metal sunglasses are a must-have for your entire social calendar. From coffee dates and prosecco brunches to poolside at your hotel, these gold butterfly frames are beautiful for any occasion.
Gem-studded Gold Frame Sunglasses
This design is so Jimmy Choo. If you’ve seen the Choo clutch bags, you’ll know exactly what we mean! For those boat parties and glitzy summer soirees, you can’t go wrong with a bit of bling. Get the JIMMY CHOO AUDREY/S shades and you’ll be rave-ready in no time.
Classic Gold Metal Aviators
Gorgeous and eye-catching, but still kind of low-key compared to the other gold sunglasses in this list. This Kendall Jenner inspired MICHAEL KORS 0MK5016 KENDALL frame is all about celebrating a classic. If you love aviators, go for gold this summer – these sunglasses are such a versatile accessory and you simply shouldn’t live without them.
Laser Cut Gold Floral Frames by MK
If you want to be a bit extra in SS19, get your hands on the MICHAEL KORS MK1038 MELBOURNE sunglasses. They’re made for girls who want to get noticed. The fabulous floral cut-out design is a feminine touch to any outfit, and there’s enough flower power for Glastonbury too.
Visor Sunglasses with Gold Top Bar
Mono lens shades are not only bang on trend, but they’re kinda practical too (yep, they’re actually sensible). They offer maximum coverage and protection from the sun, and flying dust or debris won’t stand a chance when you’re out and about. The gold bar finish on the Ralph Lauren RL7057 frame adds a stylish edge – get these because they’re fresh off the catwalk!
Cool Cateye Frames in Gold
Cateye’s a big deal in SS19, and the extreme cateye silhouette is popping up allover the place. If that style’s not for you though, stick with someone with a bit more coverage. These MaxMara Occhiali MM ILDE III are just dripping in gorgeous gold, perfect for all your important daytime events.
Gold Retro Sunglasses by Versace
The glamorous Versace VE2161 frame is all about the 80s. Think New York’s Studio 54, retro Chanel or Dior costume jewellery, and 18k Rolexes. If you love the vintage era, these sunglasses are a wardrobe staple. Perfect for festival season, and ideal for your 5* holiday suitcase. Leave these at home if you’re backpacking though – they’re made for 100% glam only.
