Even though Britain is coming into autumn now, sunglasses are still a key item to keep on wearing – they’re not just meant for summer you know! Although we are experiencing this ghastly rain at the moment, there will be those days where us Brits are graced with a beautiful sunny day, hence that’s why you should always have a stylish pair of sunnies on hand.
Having said this, it’s no surprise really that many designers included sunglasses in their Fall/Winter 2012 collections. They are an all-seasons accessory! A chic coat is instantly updated when you flaunt an elegant pair of aviators or wayfarers. Prints, patterns and thicker frame styles are all must-wear trends to rock this season if you want to give your autumn outfits a fashion forward edge.
Vintage styles are huge for fall and ideal for people who are after a retro look. Cat eye sunglasses create statement whilst remaining fashionable thanks to their slanted wingtips and thick frames. Circle, or round, designs were seen all over the designer catwalks too and created an alluring flare that gave classic autumn looks a contemporary feel. Prada styles flaunt lady like details such as swirling designs on the temple part.
One of the top sunglasses trends for fall are wayfarer frames. This classic style has remained a staple accessory and has been revamped over the seasons. Extra thick frames were popular if you wanted to create the geek-chic look, but for this season the wayfarer has become more elegant boasting a slimmer less bulky frame. Ray Ban does an amazing selection of wayfarers in a range of gorgeous colours as well as classic oversized styles in complimentary hues that are perfect for fall.
Mock tortoise shell patterns remain fashionable throughout the seasons and are making themselves known this autumn appearing on the Ray Ban Clubmaster design. These beauties flaunt a thick bold upper frame with a metal rim below and were inspired by the 50s retro rockabilly style. The versatile hues will compliment autumn clothing perfectly!
