Temperatures are soaring and if you’re still mulling over last-minute summer buys, it’s time to make haste! Along with the right outfit and sunscreen, don’t forget the right glares too, which offer good coverage and also some runway-worthy drama.
This year, angular, mini silhouettes are all the rage. They’re not just more wearable, but also more of a statement for understated, face-covering wayfarers. But if you have to go big, think quirky coloured glasses, oversized ski frames or even good ol’ driving sunglasses. Take your pick from our list of the trendiest shades:
It may be too familiar, but there’s no denying that classic round glasses are the easiest to style. Take a cue from Mimi Chakraborty, who picks a Lennon-style pair, although you can go for wider, more colourful options.
The easy-going rimless glasses are our new summer staples. They are retro, versatile and are available in a number of shapes — rectangle, round, oval and cat-eye. The relaxed rimless silhouettes go with almost everything and are great for a minimalist look. Style them with denim like Hailey Bieber!
Ditch classic frames and go for fun shapes! It may not be too work-friendly, but nothing perks up a brunch date more than heart-shaped or candy-shaped sunglasses. Gigi Hadid’s Barbie-inspired look can be your go-to guide to style this audacious trend.
Futuristic, cool and Kim K-approved — these reflective mirror sunglasses are the talk of the town. These glares are versatile and almost exude a Terminator vibe. We love how Kim Kardashian pairs it with a hot pink, party-ready number.
Tara Sutaria gives off strong Austin Powers energy in her oversized, clear ski glasses. The gold tones make for great accents and we’d love to pair this with our clear masks, for a space-inspired look!
Dressy mini glasses
Rukmini Maitra’s angular, gold-toned glasses are the epitome of understated drama. They’re pairable and also offer great coverage!
Bella Hadid’s pastel frames help tone down the drama of her elongated, reflective glasses. Instead of regular bug-eye sunglasses or sporty options, opt for something roomier that offers more protection from the sun.
