There’s nothing quite like a pair of sunglasses to amp up your attire, giving you that sartorial look; cue designer Karl Lagerfeld and editor Anna Wintour with their signature sunglasses. But you don’t have to hide your beautiful peepers behind a boring black pair when, there are so many new styles out there to begin with. While in 2018 we see a lot of slim trends, 2019 will be bolder with bigger frames and embellishments.

Take a look at some of the cool styles out there.

Thick-framed ala grandmother’s glasses

BOSS 1058/S

BOSS 1058/S sunglasses feature their vintage full acetate frames with metal rivets and subtle engravings. This brown havana with gradient brown lenses is perfect for a ride out in a convertible with the top down, we reckon.

Moschino MOS 031/S

The iconic double question mark of Moschino’s is turned into a metal trim to embellish the temples of these acetate sunglasses.

Mirror lenses

Carrera 1023/S

Don’t want to be looking like you’re full on staring? Hide your eyes behind mirror lenses. Trust us; you’ll need this when you’re staking out your crush.

CARRERA 1023/S sunglasses are available in black with multilayer Carrera colors such as red, black and white combined with red flash lenses, dark Havana with blue shaded lenses, black/gold with golden brown mirror lenses and full black with grey lenses.

Fossil

Tiny cat-eye lenses

Fendi FF 0370/s

Fendi is going all out with their micro cat-eye lenses: using light materials and eye-catching geometries for their design, their FF 0370/s sunglasses feature the brow-bar in Optyl, an extra-light plastic material with extraordinary colour effects–combined with metal, enhanced by bicolour polka dots.

Max Mara

This slim Max Mara cat-eye shape in acetate flaunts an up-to-date interpretation of a 1990s-inspired design translated with a contemporary touch.

The morning-stroll-visor-look

Take cue from aunties and ahmas who busy run morning errands at the market – but this time, elevate your style with diamantes and embellishments.

Jimmy Choo Siryn

Jimmy Choo’s Siryn features an oversized mask design decorated with sparkling Swarovski crystal detail above the upper part of the frame giving the frame a daring fashion look.

Marc Jacobs

Fashion bold colours 

Fashion is fun, when you have one stand-out colour to be the focal point.
