The summer ain’t over yet! The sun still beats down for a few extra hours everyday. What better way to embrace the end-of-season warm weather fashion moments than making a personal style statement with a pair of cool sunglasses. This season’s eyewear trends, no matter how big or small the brand, revealed itself in an unusual place, where we have never been to before, that is, going oddball or heading on home. It was literally a spectacle of flashy spectacles that are in colorful plexis, unique silhouettes, titillating details, irregular and playful shapes, and maxi or mini sizes. So you are perhaps only one little pair of sunnies away from transforming from an unnoticed passerby to a head-turning edgy streeter! Here, we’ve rounded up our favorite pairs at every price point that will defiantly elevate your ensembles for the rest of the summer and beyond.   

GUCCI has given the retro vibe a serious come back, encrusting yellowish lenses into fist sized flip-up black rims, with clear lenses in cream frames connected underneath. Dark balck shades were turned on with gorgeous cat-eye frames, effortlessly getting both style and sun protection at once. 

DIOR and MILA SCHÖN, on the contrary, took on a cool futuristic form, both installed colorful reflective lenses into rims that were designed with pure lines and futuristic accents. Korean eyewear lable GENTLE MONSTER is also on the modern side, playing around with metalized mirror lenses and funky designed frames, such as the circular ones with evenly spaced brushed Gold spikes on the rims, or the one which has taken the shape of teardrops.  

MOSCHINO and STELLA MCCTARTNEY makes sure everyone gets a pretty punch of bright colors, where the former ones features traffic colors like yellow and pink in mini cat eye shapes, delivering a playful attitude; and the later ones had oversized aviators in red and pink frames, giving off the impression that an alien invasion game is on. 

Who would shy away from excess? Indie brand LUMA has collaborating with LANA PARA, presenting sunglasses that have the entire lenses covering up by iridescent flowers! MERCURA, a new york based brand, is full of sunglasses in intriguing geometric shapes, gleefully embellished with an abundance of add-ons! 

After all, in this season’s opulent eyewear motif, if any of the attention-grabbing specs doesn’t put a flame under your summer style itself, nothing will! Put your sunnies on, you will find it hard to go unnoticed!
