With Cupid’s favourite day just around the corner, there’s no time to waste in picking a gift for the one you love. And if you’re bored (or she’s bored) of the same old chocolates and flowers, sunglasses make the perfect present to show you care. They are both practical and stylish, and they’re also a symbol of longevity. Because a good pair of sunglasses is like a good man…..they will protect her for many years to come.
So when it comes to treating your Valentine in 2021, don’t think budget – think investment. She’ll adore you for being so thoughtful, and will breathe a big sigh of relief that it’s not truffles and roses again.
Here are some of the best eyewear looks to inspire you…
(P.S, still get the flowers)
Heart-shaped sunglasses by MICHAEL KORS – £135.34
Nothing says “I love you” like a pair of heart-shaped sunglasses. But fear not if you’re worried about being too novelty. These fab frames are far from it. While they are fun and playful, they’re also on-trend, stylish and have just the right amount of bling to make her feel low-key glam.
These MICHAEL KORS MK1068 HEART BREAKER frames feature a gorgeous liquid rose gold mirror lens, giving her a flattering look for any day of the week.
Cute pink sunglasses by Kate Spade – £122.94
Made for girly girls who covet on-trend accessories with lots of pink, these Kate Spade LAMONICA/S designer sunnies tick all the boxes. They’re soft, elegant and très instagrammable.
She’ll love them if she’s a fan of round sunglasses. And here’s a quick crash course on round eyewear – they look best on a square face, but also look good on oval, heart and triangle face shapes!
Crystal Sunglasses by Tiffany & Co. – £227.31
Almost as good as diamonds (almost), Tiffany & Co. sunglasses are a symbol of quality, class, all things bling and beautiful, and definitely black-and-white-movie style romance. Tiffany blue is the best kind of blue, and these Tiffany & Co. TF4047B sunglasses are instantly recognised for its signature robin egg blue colour.
Finished with the Tiffany & Co. logo and a sparkly crystal design on the arm, these frames are bound to make her smile.
Big glittery Sunglasses by Miu Miu – £181.34
If she’s all about the glitz and glam, only these oversized Miu Miu MU 04VS sunnies will do. Pink is the colour of passion, and glitter is the new black. Together, they make a fabulous hybrid that Cupid can be proud of.
Featuring oversized gradient lenses, you’ll be giving the gift of full coverage and extra protection from the sun. Now if that isn’t true love, we don’t know what is…
Bold red sunglasses by Tom Ford – £273.87
If pink is the colour of passion, then red is pink ramped up to the max with a dollop of lust on the side. Fiery, intense and burning love deserves something bold, like these super on-trend Tom Ford FT0789 frames.
For the special person in your life who is far from a wallflower, these designer shades are a great investment piece. They’ll compliment her wardrobe and give her that high-fashion edge. A match made in heaven for her Chanel red lipstick or those infamous red-bottomed heels!
