The Round Frame

Cutler and Gross Round SunglassesJohn Lennon may have brought international stardom to round spectacles, but London brand Cutler and Gross nailed the style with their signature double dot milling.

The WayfarerRay-Ban Wayfarer Classic Sunglasses

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.

The AviatorMichael Kors Lola Sunglasses

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.

Cats Eye Frame

Celine-Caty-Cat-Eye-SunglassesI 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.
