In summer, we all take out our best attire from the back of the closet: those tiny swimsuits, those stellar heels, the raffia clutches and, of course, the craziest sunglasses. We’re entitled to: it’s festival season, it’s vacation season and it’s, ultimately, the hottest season. There’s no better excuse to wear the coolest stuff, those things that make us feel free and happy. And speaking of sunglasses, here are three of the hottest trends to wear this summer:
1. Blue mirror lenses

Mirror lenses are a hit lately! We don’t just like them on sports sunglasses, for their high protection, but also on our everyday, urban shades. While yellow and green may still be around, it seems that blue mirror lenses are the most popular this season. Great news, if you’ve always wanted blue eyes! Plus, they don’t just look good with matchy-matchy looks like this one, but with almost every other summer trend, including neons and tropical style.
2. Neon pops

One of the perks of summer is being able to wear bold colors. Neons are, of course, our favorites. Neon sunglasses look amazing, but it’s even better when they’re not entirely colored: the interior or just the arms can make them pop, while keeping a formal front. Kind of like the old saying: “business in the front, party in the back”. Get the exact same look of Kelly Framel (pictured) with the Ray Ban Clubmasters in top brown on yellow.
3. Embellished frames

You’ve seen these around, you might have even DIY-ed a pair: embellished sunglasses. Anna Dello Russo made them wild in her H&M collection, putting animals at the corners of the frames, while other designers kept it light, with delicate flowers. Other possibilities include baroque embellishments, rock’n’roll studs and spikes, pretty pearls or glitter.
