Trends: Relax into summer colours

Last minute inspiration to elevate your style

The sunny season is upon us, and UV protective sunglasses – with quality lenses – should be top of mind. For style and colour, the season is unconventional and eclectic, offering a broad spectrum of eyewear shapes and influences (in particular the 1990s- and 2000s-inspired), in alluring colours which offset classics and soft and soothing multi-colored combinations – tones of fuchsia, raspberry, and bright orange, alongside a broad palette of natural greens and sky and ocean blues which bring a boost of energy and stylish fun. Above: Night 2 by FACE A FACE – a charismatic matching of bright tones, www.faceaface-paris.com

The style is pictured in a bright orange acetate with black detailing and purple ‘pop’ lenses. www.retrosuperfuture.com
