|Florida Peaked Wayfarer // Celine Heavy Set Wayfarer // Istanbul Classic Style Wayfarer|
Now that the sun has decided to finally make an appearance this 'Summer,' I thought it would be the best time to do a little post on sunglasses. I don't know about your but I love putting on a pair of sunnies, they always make me feel a little more confident and stylish! There are so many fashionable designer-inspired pairs available both online and on the high street, however wayfarer sunglasses are a particular favourite of mine. I find that there is just something so classy about these retro shaped glasses. When I think of Wayfarers the first thing that pops into my head is Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, however I read somewhere that she wasn't actually wearing them, but a similar shaped pair. Either way, I think they are perfect for adding a touch of class to any outfit!
I have recently been introduced to a website called Icon Eyewear - you may have already heard of them. They are one of the largest manufacturers of sunglasses in the world and have been operating since 1984. There are so many fashionable pairs of sunnies on their website, catering for both men and women. I particularly liked the three wayfarer styles featured in the image above. It's funny because I always lean towards buying tortoiseshell glasses. I would really like a classic black pair, as they go with everything, and think the peach pair would add a quirky but feminine touch to an outfit. What I really found surprising was just how affordable their glasses are, with many of their pairs retailing at just £15.00. Although I love the idea of owning designer sunglasses, fashion trends change so quickly that I just can't justify the purchase. I much prefer to buy sunglasses from retailers like Icon Eyewear, who offer similar styles at more purse-friendly prices.
Icon Eyewear are based in the UK, however they ship internationally too (I know a few of my followers are from overseas!) Whilst browsing their website I noticed that if you sign up for their newsletter you get 10% off your first purchase - always nice to get a little discount!
I know quite a few people worry about finding a pair of sunglasses that will suit their face shapes, so here are a few tips to keep in mind when you are trying to find the right pair...
What's your favourite style of sunglasses?
