Fashion: These are summer's hottest sunglasses trends

SUNGLASSES are an essential part of every summer wardrobe, and not just for eye protection purposes.

The right pair of sunnies can turn an average outfit into a triumph, especially if they’re one of the latest crop of celeb-approved shades.

Take the shortcut to stellar summer style with these fashionable frames…

1. Nineties cat-eye sunglasses

Beloved of Bella and Gigi Hadid, Sofia Richie et al, Le Specs’ narrow, Nineties-esque cat-eye sunglasses have become ubiquitous in paparazzi shots of fashion’s hot young things of late. The good news is that these skinny, eyebrow-revealing sunnies are less than £100 – but if you want an even cheaper pair, Topshop does a decent £20 dupe.

2. Retro round sunglasses

Round frames are making a big comeback this season – with huge, retro-style sunnies showing up in lots of designer collections, from Acne to Max Mara. Pop on a pair of these face-shielding shades when you want to exude celeb-dodging-paps-at-the-airport kind of nonchalance.

3. Marble sunglasses

Not literally marble, of course – eyewear that heavy would be hard to keep in place – but the marble trend has made its way from the interiors world to accessories. If tortoiseshell was your go-to for shades before, try switching it up with this modern motif.
