Cool kids like Vanessa Hudgens don’t consider their round frames as festival-only gear! Coachella being long gone, pair them with your casual downtown looks, day or night.

Seventies revival doesn’t only call for festival fun and laid-back attitude. It’s also the decade of glamour, as Marc Jacobs and D&G reminded us on their latest summer runways. With those big, square sunnies, it’s all about dolce vita and jet-set ventures!

Beyoncé’s name could be a synonym for “glamour,” so it’s no surprise to see that she picked a pair of ’70s-inspired square sunnies for a stroll in Paris. This shape of frames gives instant chic, so go for floppy hats or flow-y maxi dresses. As for Mrs. Jay-Z, her vision of luxe is golden tones, from her blond mane to her matching bronze frames and stunning sandals.

With eyebrows!

Eyebrows have been the beauty focus of this summer’s runways, from Alexander Wang’s big brows to Haider Ackermann’s extreme arches. But the eyebrow-trend was best adopted by Prada by way of their amazingly expressive sunnies, topped with colourful brows.

With eyebrows!

Leave it to Anna Dello Russo to always wear the most outrageous getups right off the runway! Vogue Japan’s headmistress roamed around Milano, wearing Prada’s Minimal Baroque sunglasses and pairing them with a matching Prada stole and a contrasting yellow suit. If you’re feeling a bit less adventurous than Miss ADR, let your eyebrow sunglasses do the talking and keep the lines of your outfit as minimalist as possible.

Classic

Rock ’n’ roll is here to stay! Same goes for the classic Wayfarer. Ray-Ban’s bestseller has been worn through the decades by countless rock stars and trendsetters alike, from Michael Jackson to Katy Perry. What’s great about this shape is that not only does it fit everyone but it also gives a touch of edgy attitude.

Wayfarers are the most versatile eyewear option out there. Just like Hollywood cutie Emma Roberts, pair them with your off-duty outfits for a trendy, laid-back look.
