Chunky sunglasses are shaping summer’s fashion

Summer is right around the corner, and this means sunglasses are your must have accessory, and what’s better than a pair of chunky sunnies?

These bold wardrobe additions are not just a trend that is shaping men and women's summer fashion but they are a statement and an expression of fun.

Chunky sunglasses are raising the bar for how people are dressing this summer, and it is setting the trend.

Fashion-forward chunky cat eye sunglasses

When it comes to being bold and confident, nothing speaks louder than a pair of Vivienne Westwood sunglasses.

These frames feature the iconic tartan print of the fashion house, in a mix of vibrant blue, green and pink which is a classic tinted frame. Their cat-eye shaped front is slightly geometric, which is a surefire way to catch someone’s eye.

Pair these iconic sunglasses with an oversized shirt and pair of simple blue-washed jeans—let the sunnies do the talking.

Cool girl red sunnies

We all know red has been trending since Autumn, and despite the weather changing, it’s not going anywhere.

This summer we’re evolving it to our eyewear choice, and these Specsavers red chunky sunglasses are the perfect pair. The cat-eye shape features a further pop of colour with mosaic print on the sides, to add an extra flare.

Couple these up with your favourite red accessory, whether that’s a shoulder bag, loafers or nail varnish.

Black chunky sunglasses

To achieve the off-duty model look, simplicity is the route to go.

These Compton black frames are finished with a two-texture style; a matte-black exterior and a glossy interior. The slightly oversized angular style is a modern take on the classic square frames and is the ultimate cool style.

For both men, these frames are the ideal day-to-night accessory.

If you’re moving from the office to after-work drinks, then these black chunky sunglasses can get you ready for the bright and dazzling sunshine.

Or if you’re in the market for even larger sunglasses to emphasise the celebrity style, then these bow-shaped chunky Liberty sunglasses are ideal.

The deep acetate sides feature a beautiful pink and green floral pattern, which is a much-loved Liberty design and eye-catching for those passing by.

Liberty has gone above and beyond with these sunglasses and they encompass the chunky sunglass trend.

Wraparound chunky sunnies

How to effortlessly capture today’s fashion trends? Combining them. And these wraparound, chunky sunglasses are a sleek way to ensure you’re the trendsetter.

In classic black acetate, these sunglasses have a subtle wraparound effect with pops of purple, white and blue on the sides.

Use these colours as a style guide of how to dress these sunnies: think a plain white-t-shirt with a pop of dark-washed denim maxi skirt, or juxtapose the athleisure aesthetic with an ultra-feminine summer dress.

Bold and bright chunky sunglasses

Summer means festival season is back, and the best way to elevate your outfit is a pair of bold and retro chunky sunglasses.

No matter rain or shine, sunglasses at a festival are essential and these Specsavers statement frames fit the bill. The deep rectangular lenses are in a crystal-acetate with a visible glittery core wire, meaning your eyes will be protected whilst you stand out from the crowd.

Pair with your favourite reliable wellies or boots, and a suede jacket for a great boho style.

Chunky men’s sunglasses

Everyone can get involved with this rising trend.

These striking dark-green crystal-acetate sunglasses are both chunky and with an angular feel—perfect for those looking to get involved with the trend but without going overboard.

Style these frames with a pair of suit trousers or jeans, and with a laid-back oversized t-shirt. Something lightweight and relaxed will complement these sunglasses and ensure you’re the most stylish in the room.
