As the sun beats down and the temperature rises, it’s the perfect time to buy some cool summer frames. But what do we wear them with?
From feminine rose to midnight blue, and elegantly swept brows to structured and powerful silhouettes, here’s Specsavers guide to summer style.
A feminine rose
The summer season is a time to inject colour into your specs. Rose quartz ruled the catwalks this season. It has the ability to add a sense of feminine calm to your wardrobe. Specsavers Merle (£25), FCUK 89 (£99) and Specsavers Peridot (£89) reveal the colour subtly. Wear with a stark white dress ending mid-calf and let your summer tan glow or pair with an off-the-shoulder top, romantic lace or a floral slip dress (forever a summer staple).
Step into a man’s shoes
Men’s tailoring in womenswear has reigned supreme since Marlene Dietrich started wearing tuxedos in the twenties. Gender blur has also transitioned to eyewear. Karl Lagerfeld (£125) is a perfect example. The bold masculine square silhouette oozes empowerment. Look to the colour mix when considering what to pair the glasses with. Blue and tortoise work perfectly together here.
Choose a tailored jumpsuit in spring/summer shades of blue and bare skin with an off-the-shoulder jumpsuit. Another evening option is shimmering silver which will pair with the frame’s blue perfectly. Denim is a big go-to when thinking of a more casual alternative, especially in ice blue. For this look go for Specsavers Vasa (£89) for a discreet version of the shape. The crystal grey checked brow is subtle but still bang on trend.
