Sunnies are a wardrobe staple, here’s our top 4 cult classic styles
Whether they’re for sun bathing, driving, or hiding a hangover, sunglasses are a year round wardrobe staple; and we picked out our top four cult classic styles to see you through rain or shine.
John Lennon may have brought international stardom to round spectacles, but London brand Cutler and Gross nailed the style with their signature double dot milling. For street style inspiration see Aldene Johnson’s Cutler & Gross glasses and Alejandra Trejo’s circular Tom Ford sunnies.
Available in every colour combination imaginable, Ray-Ban’s most successful shaped sunglasses have enjoyed waves of popularity since the 1950’s. The Wayfarer style works with almost any outfit, smart or casual, and the frames are durable enough to survive many a festival mosh pit. See Oliver Cargill’s Ray-Ban street style.
Other wise known as the pilot, Top Gun brought eternal frame fame to aviator shape sunglasses. Rather like an over sized shirt, they look better when you pinch them from your fella, but if none are available to pilfer Michael Kors do a great selection. See Nevean Morgan’s aviator street style in Oxford Circus.
I spy with my little cats eye, a sunglasses trend to dress up the most average of outfits. Big enough to make a statement whilst hiding all manor of sins, these are a feline fashion essential. Celine do chunky cats eye frames best, and their Caty style pictured is available in Summer time hues of rose through to Autumnal tortoise shell. For street style inspiration see Julia Lawton in West London.

2 Mates & A Blog guest post & street style on Nicely Turned Out
Hello. We’re Chan and Dan from 2 Mates and a Blog and we have the absolute honour of guest blogging for Nicely Turned Out this week. With this in mind it was imperative for us to pull out all the stops and to hold back nothing. It was show time. We are both great fans of Nicely Turned Out for a couple of solid reasons, such as the quality of content as well as the quality of design. Oh, and not to mention the pretty spectacular street style they capture.
Now, some of you might have seen our blog before but we’re guessing a vast majority of you haven’t. If there was one thing we would love to get across to all of the Nicely Turned Out readers with this one post, it would be that we love doing things big. We not only love getting our creative juices flowing by either enlisting our fun loving, quirky outfits on ourselves or others but we love to create storyboards and mood boards to explain our thought process behind each one of them. So here goes this weeks’ inspiration. With one of the AW14 biggest trends taking over the world it seems, we opted to express our 70’s flare. Baring in mind the uber cool prints, flares, wavy hair and bold block colours, we proceeded to embrace our inner hippy. Chan enlisted the help from the classic cut out wide legged jumpsuit and a rather vibrant sequinned/ embellished jacket. To enhance the look that little bit further she added a heavily patterned scarf to her wrist. However to bring some of the 21st century back she chose gold toe tap pointed heels. Dan went for a rather chic black velvet jumpsuit with a gold netted cardigan. Her large round sunglasses gave her that 70’s edge along with her flowing wavy locks. What are your thoughts on the current trend? Is it a nay or yay for you? Will you be digging out your mums’ denim flares and wrapping a head scarf around your head like Rambo?
