We all know what wedding season means when it comes to our accessories. These days, your wedding guest outfit is no longer just about the dress. Or even the shoes. The way we accessorise can say a lot about us, and quality pieces can instantly rejuvenate a tired outfit.
Completing a reception-worthy ensemble is all about the perfect clutch, the right statement jewellery, and stylish headwear and eyewear. Those details really matter, and with summer wedding season officially here, there’s never been a better time to invest in a luxury pair of sunglasses for all your formal events.
When a casual pair of wayfarers just won’t cut it, here are the best elegant sunglasses for women to ensure you’re the best-dressed guest in attendance!
Dolce & Gabbana DG6113
It doesn’t get more chic or classic than a pair of black Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses. These feature a subtle cateye silhouette and slimline temples that blend in seamlessly with any outfit you’re wearing. Finished with gold metal detailing and a gold ‘Dolce & Gabbana’ logo, these sunnies are the perfect designer investment for every stylish event and occasion.
The perfect pairing with your favourite LBD, but versatile enough to complement any colour, print or fabric choice. Style with some open toe black leather heels for the perfecting pairing.
Marc Jacobs MJ 501/S
For those summer skintone vibes, we’re loving the Marc Jacobs MJ 501/S sunglasses in a warm toffee beige. While white and ivory are a big no-no, wedding guests can still enjoy a range of neutral shades, like oatmeal, sand, nude, blush or tan. These comforting hues work well in the heat of summer, and add instant femininity to any wardrobe look.
Complete the look with beige/tan heels and accessories. Opt for leather (or luxury vegan leather) to raise your style game, and don’t leave home without matching designer eyewear. For bonus points, match the colour of your shoes to your skin colour as this create an illusion of longer legs!
Tom Ford FT0921 Jacquetta
Bold and super glam, the Tom Ford FT0921 Jacquetta sunglasses can revive any dress in your wardrobe. This is the ultimate accessory that can turn your daytime outfit into something that’s event-ready, or an old dress that’s been hanging in your wardrobe for years into a showstopper.
Designed with a square frame, extra thick temples and an all-black finish, these sunglasses look like they’ve been plucked straight off the runway.
MICHAEL KORS 0MK5016 KENDALL
That’s right, aviators can be elegant too, and these MICHAEL KORS 0MK5016 KENDALL frames are perfect for events like weddings. They are a nod to Michael’s favourite aviator shape, and are totally inspired by everyone’s favourite Jenner/Kardashian sister.
They’re made from lightweight metal and feature an oversized lens and subtle branding for low key glam. Get them in matte black to elevate your wedding guest wardrobe, and style with a simple black clutch.
JIMMY CHOO KYLA/S 25TH
A bit of bling is always welcomed at weddings. As long as you don’t outstage the bride, it’s perfectly appropriate to bring a bit of razzle and dazzle to the wedding party. These 25th anniversary edition frames from Jimmy Choo feature a butterfly-shaped frame with cut-out detailing and hand-applied Swarovski crystals.
The crystals instantly add something extra to your outfit and matches well with any of the embellished clutch bags from the Jimmy Choo range. You’ll also find some amazing Jimmy Choo crystal heels to choose from – just make sure you stay out of the bridal section to avoid same shoe embarrassment with the bride.
