Finishing Touches: Sunglasses

Oliver Bonas Vienna Black Metal Cateye Sunglasses 45 xhqyyq

It might be more logical to dedicate a page to sunglasses at the start of summer, rather than now, but if you’re anything like us the glasses with which you started the summer have now been scratched/sat on/lost (delete as appropriate).

Even if you have managed to keep your shades in peak condition, there’s no denying that a new pair of sunnies can transform your mood and look. They are the lipstick of the accessory world – a payday treat which needn’t break the bank but can lift the spirits immeasurably.

Masters of the colourful acetate frame, Swedish designer brand Chimi, have collaborated with their compatriots at H&M to produce a bright, zinging collection of fashion-led frames and lenses. Snap up a pair at £34.99, hm.com

These are the epitome of Italian chic, with their over-sized lenses evoking timeless glamour. The black resin frames are embossed with Furla’s distinctive and oh-so-desirable logo in metal. £220, furla.com

Micro-sunglasses are the size of choice for the Gen Zers. Just £4 at George will buy you into the trend and score double points with their cat-eye shape. asda.com

Quay Australia have the most swoon-worthy frames which tick every trend box. However, this is a brand that goes beyond a hashtag, with ranges dedicated to supporting a diverse collection of causes from racial justice to education and hunger relief. These rainbow-tinted lenses in cute heart shapes (Heartbreaker, Gold Rainbow £40) are from their Pride collection. Have a browse on quayaustralia.co.uk and whilst you’re there pick up a rainbow-rhinestone embellished glasses chain for a mere £12.

Happy moments can be spent whilst browsing the always-excellent collection of glasses at TK Maxx. If a designer label makes your heart beat a little faster, this is the place to pick up the brand of your dreams. It’s also a cost-efficient way of stepping outside of your comfort zone and trying some of the more out-there styles around. From a selection at tkmaxx.com

For a more classic take on eyewear chic, Oliver Bonas never fails to come up trumps. These are just cat-eye enough to be modish but not so much so that you have to be a teenager to carry them off. £45, oliverbonas.com
