With the year round Australian sun, sunnies have never simply been reserved for summer when we’re squandering our weekends away at the beach or eating more watermelon slices than we can count. Because of the ever present sunshine here, besides our little stash at home, we’ve always got a pair of sunnies in our car and another that we lug around in our bag.
Sunglasses need not be boring. If sun safety and protection against vision damage and nasty crow’s feet haven’t got you sold, sunglasses are also a fashion accessory in their own right.
This season, the fashion folk are more than a little smitten with statement sunglasses, and if you haven’t got the memo, the louder the better!
But let’s face it, models and sartorial icons aside, most of us would think twice before popping on a pair of neon glasses or Elton John’s signature heart-shaped frames. That’s why we were so intrigued when we were approached by iframes.
iframes is an online, Australian glasses specialist that offers specs from some of the world’s most coveted brands. Rayban, Kate Spade, Prada and Chanel- they’ve got it all! What fascinated us most about iframes is the ability to have a Virtual Try On. This feature takes the guess work out of shopping for sunglasses (which is a handy tool if you’re thinking treating yourself to a designer pair!). By uploading a picture of yourself, you can instantly see how any of the frames will look on you. Another feature we loved playing around with was Face Match which helps you pick out glasses based on your face shape as well as your personal style. After spending our Friday night scrolling through the site and playing with these features, we thought we’d show you some of our favourite statement sunglasses picks.
Nail the off-duty model look by playing with funky silhouettes. This Prada beauty will have you looking VS ready faster than you can say “Angel”.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, which are the fairest sunnies of them all
Opt for the Oakley Frogskins to channel your inner Rita Ora, and see the world through rose coloured lenses.
Round the twist
Give off a cool, trendy-meets-vintage vibe with round frames. You can never go wrong with your classics from Ray Ban.
