Five Frames You Need For Summer

Five Frames You Need For Summer

Ready to throw some shade?

By Bethan Warrior | 14th January 2021

Beach trips and sunset bars mean your sunnies game better be popping this summer!

In our humble opinion, you can never underestimate the power of a good pair of shades. They’re the sure-fire accessory for adding that instant ‘It Girl’ factor to any outfit, plus they really are an essential when living in our QLD climate.

Sunglass shopping can be tricky – and with so many styles and shapes out there, it’s well worth knowing what’s going to be the right pair for you. Lucky for all you shoppers, ‘cause we’ve teamed up with the legends over at Le Specs to uncover the top five styles you’ll want to keep your eyes on this summer. If you’re anything like us, you’ll be ordering one of each!

70’s Oversized

This summer sees us taken back to the hay day of hot pants and big hair with some seriously seventies styled frames. Super retro and timelessly chic, these are perfect for a statement piece this summer. We love seeing the oversized aviator styles with groovy tints paired with the classic tort print. You’ll be bringing a Studio 54 edge to your style this summer in this uber funky frame.

Be There Or Be Square

If you’re looking for the perfect pair of sunglasses to take on your beachside adventures, we’ve got it right here for you. Inspired by the relaxed luxury of the Plage de Saline beach in St Barts, the Saline style from Le Specs brings a modern feel to a sixties-style square frame. The striking white frame and mirrored lenses pair perfectly with this square shape we’ve seen soaring in popularity.

Pilot Perfect

Amongst the fads and phases of the fashion cycle, the classic aviator silhouette has stood the test of time. A true investment piece, you’ll wear these guys over and over again. Rimless glasses are also on the uptick this season, which is why we’re digging this vintage-inspired style. For a sophisticated and empowered look, you’ll want these cooler-than-Cruise, androgynous frames.

Skinny Oval

You can thank the likes of Rhi-Rhi and Bella Hadid for making skinny sunglasses a must-try trend for any fashionista. Capturing the essence of a 90s supermodel in these sleek, stylish frames, the oval will be reigning supreme as the slim shape of the season. Perfectly paired with a claw clip in your hair and some platform sandals on your feet to complete a happening look with endless street cred.

Dramatic Cat-Eye

Flattering and feminine, the cat-eye is also a staple we’re no stranger to. This season sees the return of an oversize, dramatic flick. Thick frames are coming in hot this summer which is why we’re loving the caramel Air Heart style from Le Specs. Not only is it a complimentary design for all face shapes it’s all a favourite of Meghan Markle and Oliva Palermo…talk about boujee!
