The ultimate accessory for summer ‘18, these are the frames to invest in now

A chic pair of sunglasses can be an outfit game-changer, transforming a simple look into one of glory. They make the perfect companion to tired eyes and will help shield you from the glare of Saturday morning. 

It makes sense, then, that sunnies have become a street-style talking point, with the likes of Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner opting for bright colours and futuristic shapes day to night. And they are just as big on the catwalks, too, with colourful shades and blinged out frames all over this year’s fashion shows.
