Accessories | Sunnies Delight

Whether the sun is out or not, I've steadily been building up a little sunglasses collection (or should that be obsession?!) over the last few months. I'm the type of person that always likes to have a pair of sunnies in my bag and in the car. A good pair of sunglasses can (aside from the obvious sun protection element) make or break an outfit plus they are ideal for covering up eye bags telling tales from the night before (whether you've been on a wild night out or been up with your baby!) as well as being handy to throw on if the sun decides to make an appearance. I love wearing sunglasses whether it's sunny or not - often when I haven't quite woken up and I'm not quite ready to make eye contact on the tube in the mornings!

There are some great sunglasses on the market at the moment, and you'll be happy to know you won't have to spend a fortune on them. On the high street check out & Other Stories - my absolute favourite place to shop for sunglasses - they have a great selection of different shapes, sizes and styles, some trend led, some classic at purse friendly prices. I also love ASOS, Topshop, Monki and New Look. Other reasonably priced brands that offer stylish sunnies include Le Specs, Jeepers Peepers, Cheap Monday, Spitfire and Whistles.

Favourite sunglasses trends to try this spring/summer: Round (classically chic), coloured or mirrored coloured lenses (hippy festival vibes), cat eye (glamorous chic), aviators (sporty, traditional yet modern, updated this season with mirror lenses) and semi rimless (half framed sunnies as seen at Miu Miu and Opening Ceremony are fresh and youthful).

My latest sunglasses purchases!

I also just picked up a couple of pairs of round sunglasses - to trial the trend and style shape for my face - from New Look at a bargainous £5.99 each (black and tortoise) I love them - the hubby not so much! Says I look like Harry Potter! 

What shape are your favourite sunglasses from?
