Summer, should equal longer days, lighter nights and ridiculous amounts of heat. But, if it’s like every other year here in the UK then were more than likely to not be gettin’ the suns full force, but a few measily hours a week. Yet when we do get a little bit of this beauty, whether it be warm or not, we’re all sure to bash out the shades. Most of the time not even remotely for eye protection, but because sunglasses not only hide your eyes from the rays, but totally transform any outfit.
In all honesty, I find that sunglasses are not only practical for keeping my cornea’s intact or transform my outfit, but they allow me to pop out with a bare minimum of makeup and still feel amazing. You know, trying to be all Kim Kardashian-esque when she leaves the gym wearing them? Yeah, your right in what your thinking that I aint Kim but by God can shades be a life saver. And with these life savers comes many a style, colour, material, design and brand. This could be allllll the way from good ol’ Primark to the ever adored designer end of Chloe, VB and more. Dependant upon the person, their bank balance or serious love of shades, we all buy at different price ranges and for different reasons. To some their a much neded vice and for those others( like me) they are a luxury no matter what the price. So, here’s to the Summer, endless laughter,refreshing drinks and lookin’ fierce in our eyewear.
Below is my top picks for Summer 2015 shade wearing, with the opportunity to save for or spluge on. Go on ladies (and gents) and get that summer style going because in a blink of an eye the sun will be gone and it’s back to thermal leggings and the constant use of an umbrella!
