Specsavers has unveiled the key sunglasses looks for Spring/Summer ‘19
Your Style

Shades of Summer

We’ve unveiled our Spring/Summer ‘19 collection and this season, sunglasses are going from a supporting to a starring role as we see glasses wearers moving away from more functional styles to more statement pieces that express their individual style.

With over 100 sunglasses launching throughout the season, key trends include XL oversized square frames, cat-eye sunglasses with sharp angles and acetate colours in shades of pink, along with rich and earthy browns. 

Vintage inspired, the return of oversized square frames is both glamourous and statement-making. Practical and trendy, these frames are ideal for the summer months, offering protection from the sun’s rays. The classic cat-eye is also getting a funkier look this season. A fashionable favourite for decades they aren’t going out of style any time soon. A cat-eye pair of sunglasses will always have you looking stylish by the pool or on the beach.

While pop princess and Specsavers designer, Kylie Minogue, will also be launching a new range which features a pair of retro cat-eye shaped sunglasses in black with glitter cut-out detail.

When it comes to choosing sunglasses, my tips are find the right ones for you and your wardrobe and make them work with your individual style. Sunglasses might be a small accessory, but they can have a large impact on your look. 

While fashionable they are also practical and offer great UV protection. Lastly go for polarised lenses, it’s an option you’ll want: Polarising cuts the glare and are a must for the Australian summer.
