Festival fun in festival sunglasses

Festival season is booming and we’re on board. What better way to celebrate the British summertime than with friends, good vibes and funky music? Another festival incentive is of course, the fashion. With total freedom to wear whatever you like, from casual comfort to practical wellies to all-out glam, this is a great time to make bold decisions with your eyewear. And who said prescription frames can’t be the talk of the summer too? Check out our round-up of festival eyewear styles.

Festival sunglasses

Earthy tones

Embrace an unconventional colour to create a fun, monochrome festival outfit. Like the earthy, green tones in the Specsavers Algae sunglasses. The green-tinted frames are the perfect companion to camouflage cargo pants and green wellies. Why not make it more fun and colour-coordinate with your whole festival clique?

Trending wraparounds

Wraparound sunglasses just keep growing in popularity, so now is not the time to let your prescription hold you back. For this trend, try the Specsavers Sea Bream. Not only are these super laid-back sunglasses great for festival fashion, but the understated wraparound style will take you through the seasons and years too. Pair with cut-off jean shorts, hiking boots and a muscle tee for a fun Y2K party look.

Add a sunglasses chain

An easy way to elevate your festival look is with a sunglasses chain. The pale-gold metal exterior of these adidas Orginals sunglasses could easily be paired with our gold fashion chain. Not only is this an added accessory but it’s also a practical way to keep hold of your festival sunnies over the weekend. That would be nice, wouldn’t it? Pair this sunglasses-chain combo with jorts, layered gold jewellery and an open shirt for added layers.

Funky festival sunglasses

Challenge fashion norms and step outside your comfort zone with these iconic sunglasses by Vivienne Westwood. Together the oversized frame, bold tartan pattern and chunky temples create maximum impact. The perfect statement festival sunglasses. Pair with a white top, red hotpants and platform boots to ace festival chic.

Two tone frames

Mix colour and pattern with the Specsavers Keppel sunglasses. The rounded frames are a classic silhouette that will flatter most face shapes. The tortoiseshell brow line is set against a crystal pink lower rim that complements and clashes in equal measure. Wear these festival sunglasses with a vintage look that combines worn materials like suede with a pop of pink. Embroidered cowboy boots or a waistcoat would look stylish paired with a white broderie dress.

Prescription festival glasses

Push the boundaries

Don’t let your prescription stop you from exploring festival glasses or sunglasses style. Take your prescription frames, like this Viktor-Rolf pair, and add a reaction lens at checkout. Your new festival glasses will take you from shade to sunshine. The unique double gold frames make for a striking festival look. Make them your centrepiece and pair with relaxed pieces to nail the effortless, 90s festival style.

Create your own

Another way to create your own bespoke festival glasses, is by using a prescription frame and adding a colour-tinted prescription lens. Start with a unique frame like the Specsavers Camila. Then add a green tinted lens to complement the vibrant yellow temple tips. Simply add a sun tint and UV at checkout. You can find more information about lens treatments here.
