Turn around – circular sunglasses are back
What do John Lennon and Steve Jobs have in common? Very clearly, they wore round sunglasses that became a striking distinguishing feature. In 2018 they are back and have become the légère style statement for the modern trendsetter. Ray Ban was one of the first of the retro wave, alongside Gucci and Saint Laurent. Round glasses are available in almost all colours and sizes, from medium large to narrow and mini-small. Models with transparent frames, pastel-coloured lenses or extravagant decorations are the proof that shades have entered a new generation. Only hippies wear round sunglasses? Wrong! Alongside style icons Gigi Hadid or Pop starlet Miley Cyrus, fashionettes have the advantage regarding sunglasses trends and had already discovered the Shades in 2017 to wear in everyday life. Particularly women with oval, angular or heart-shaped faces look good in the organic sunglasses shape, emphasising a feminine look.
These are the trends for circular sunglasses
The hottest trend of the season, even for circular shapes, is to show to the world which labels you love: The big names are really into to small accessories these days. Gucci is a prime example here: the design house once again proves how creative, stylish and elegant it can be at displaying the famous double G logo. The result: Wonderful large round sunglasses for women who like things graceful and opulent. By contrast, Saint Laurent focuses on smaller shapes in the style of musician John Lennon that bring the légère hippie vibes from those days into the modern streetstyle image of today. The delicate pastels of Ray Ban are really flattering and match delicate faces perfectly. Whether they are feminine rosé, heavenly sky blue or sunny yellow – the colourful circular lenses make the summer even lovelier.
