Funky festival frames
If there’s any place where it’s socially acceptable to go wild with your style, it’s a festival. The fashion rules no longer apply — you could go retro with an oversized vintage shirt, or more modern with shorts and a tank top. Either way, you’re going to need to accessorise, and funky glasses are a festival must-have. The bolder the better we think.
The retro scene is big at festivals, so you’ll want to stay on trend. We think the hippies in the ‘60s had the right idea, and their style is perfect to create your festival look — just grab a tie-dye t-shirt and you’re halfway there. Next you’ll need some glasses to match, and nothing says retro like round glasses. With their circular frames, this Osiris pair is a nod to the flower power era, and their multi-coloured tie-dye colourway fits the boho theme perfectly.
Looking for funky sunglasses that keep your eyes protected too? These stand-out round sunnies from Kenzo are a great festival fit. Their chunky acetate frames are bold and blue, and the kaleidoscope print on the sides definitely makes a psychedelic statement.
We know that not everyone likes to go for the vintage vibe at festivals. Some people are just more into neon — and we love that too. If you love colour, then we know you’re not afraid to be adventurous with your glasses style. These Red or Dead 128 metal aviator-style glasses are modern and cool, while their bright blue lens-rims will make you stand out from the crowd.
More of a glitter person? These Marc Jacobs 25 glasses will complete your festival style. The magenta colour pops, and their sparkly sides will complement glitter make-up or face paint for the ultimate festival look.
Colour-tinted glasses are another festival style staple. To get the look with prescription lenses, simply choose your favourite frames and then add a coloured lens tint.
Want your stylish specs to be the talk of the party? We’ve got you covered. Whether you’re going to a themed party and need that missing accessory to complete your look, or just want to add a retro twist to your party outfit — funky glasses are the way forward.
The easiest way to go bold with your glasses is to go big. Oversized frames are great, just find your pair and rock them all day long. These burnt orange tortoiseshell VR 02 SUN RX frames are big, bold and perfect for a 70s-inspired outfit. Think Sonny and Cher or Studio 54.
Going back to the 50s with your frames? The cat-eye silhouette is very much trending again and is the perfect frame to complete a retro-inspired look. These Specsavers EDREI prescription glasses are a great take on the cat-eye design. Their exaggerated wings combined with the vibrant purple colour make the design very glamorous — they’re definitely bold, but also very stylish. Perfect for a 50s diner-style outfit.
Funky glasses for everyday
If you thought that statement specs were only for outlandish occasions, think again. Funky glasses can be part of your everyday style too.
Go wild for animal print
You can never go wrong with an animal print — they’re patterned enough to catch someone's attention, but not too ‘out-there’ that they would overpower your outfit. These Karren Millen KM 105 frames are stylish and fashion-forward. The cheetah print has golden undertones to bring out the elegance of such a timeless print – a perfect touch of luxury to your everyday looks.
In keeping with the jungle theme, these Specsavers HARRIET glasses are another alternative. Their green, tortoiseshell print adds a touch of animal adventure, while their classic frame shape is simple enough to be worn every day. A perfect way to be bold without being too bold.
Your go-to statement sunnies
Sunglasses can still be fun without the need for neon colours or big, bold patterns. For a statement look that’s more suited to everyday wear, these BALMAIN BL1550S SUN RX frames tick all the boxes. Their abstract cat-eye shape adds a contemporary twist to the retro style.
