Forget Everything You Knew About This Sunglasses Trend

Bright, bold, tinted lenses are staying put for spring this year and we’re not upset about it. Practicality aside, accessories have never been more expressive and personalised, and quite frankly, we are spotting the retro trend worldwide. Sunglasses designer, Karen Walker is particularly a lover of the fun trend: “Although my usual go-to glasses have been cat-eye on rotation, we’re still having a lot of fun with tinted lenses. I’m especially looking forward to wearing them this summer!”

The best part about the whole trend is the fact that it offsets even the most serious of outfits. Structured blazer? Satin trousers? Black staples? With a pair of tinted shades, you’re good to go for any daytime occasions this spring. Stuck on what colour to try? Take Walker’s advice on what celebrities are loving at the most. “We’ve loved seeing our pink tints on some of our favourite faces; Lorde, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and on girls in our own hometown.”
