You know it's summer when you suddenly feel like it's time kick back, max, relax and slide on a pair of so-slick-I-ain't-even-trying sunglasses.
When it comes to shades you're either the type who spends big (only a designer pair will do, and you're all over Prada's Spring/Summer 2014 tortoiseshell cat-eye line up), you lose/ break/ borrow eyewear every season so anything goes, you're a Ray Ban girl through and through or you wear nothing but OTT oversized styles.
Think retro Dame Edna chintz meets Rihanna-in-her-pearl-round-lens-Chanels vibe.
Whatever your preference on the sunglasses front, it's definitely the right time for new pair. The best bit? Team with a punchy lipstick and you could literally run the world.
This edit is full of styles - on trend, on budget (unless you're actually considering an investment purchase) - to wear on top of your double denim weekend wares, to sunny soirees and all holiday/ festival long. In fact, these babies are so good you'll want to go for at least two pairs. Because must-have accessories should come in plural. Always.
Take a flick through this shopping gallery to see some of the pairs we've got eyes on from Topshop, River Island, Mango, French Connection and Net-a-Porter (*whispers* the designer ones).
FYI if you're buying into the latest trends - mirrored/ coloured lenses, bold frames, kooky embellishment, Wayfarers, cat-eyes and geek-sleek square styles are the way to go.
