They are not just for shielding your eyes from the sun. Available in all shapes, designs and colours, shades are the best (read: very easy) way to dress up your outfit or look.
Classic styles like the aviator and wayfarer never go out of fashion. Statement pairs with mirrored lenses or a bold coloured frame, on the other hand, will get you noticed among the crowds.
Here’s a look at the current season’s offerings of must-have shades.
Givenchy’s dramatic design is a nod to the abstract notion of mirrors. It is inspired by rain showers, with hundreds of cascading crystals decorating the frame.
Bally pays homage to the warm glow of a California sunset. This design speaks of a laid-back ease, though the oversized frame also narrates a more glamorous persona.

Emporio Armani offers a twist to the usual aviators with a double-rim metal frame construct. The design offers a fresh take on the current language of street style – cool and collected.
