Dior sunglasses eyewear accessories yellow investment classic statement colour sunshine holiday wardrobe

Yellow is the colour of the summer, but the sunny shade isn’t the easiest to wear. Opt for some statement yellow-lens eyewear to channel the trend – from small Nineties lenses to aviators to cat-eye styles. Here, the Stylist fashion team pick their favourites.

Dior Club 3 Aviators

Chosen by Kitty McGee, Executive Fashion Director

“I wear a uniform of minimal basics: crew-neck jumpers, white T-shirts and jeans or tailored trousers, so statement accessories are where I have my fun. I love a coloured lens and recently misplaced some blue sunglasses I have been wearing for the past few years, so these yellow Dior aviators are top of my current wish-list.”

Chloé oversized metal-frame aviators

Chosen by Arabella Greenhill, Fashion Director

“Metal-framed aviators are my jam. I have a pair of opticals in the same style that I wear for everyday and love. These will be perfect for my upcoming New York Fashion Week trip; they compliment colourful midi dresses as well as working with simple tailoring.”

Finlay & Co Wentworth Sunglasses

Chosen by Polly Knight, Fashion Editor

“I love a yellow lens so am thrilled about this trend. These feel statement enough but are still quite minimal, which I like, and the chunky black frame feels cool and fresh.”

“I like wearing colour but couldn’t do a yellow lens with a yellow frame too. This Moscot style is punchy but still feels really cool. I’ll be wearing them with a floral wrap dress and trainers until the temperature finally drops.”
