Summer is around the corner and your probably more ready than ever for those long days in the sun, a cold drink on the beach and that irresistible smell of a braai on a warm summer’s night. You’ve saved up money for that holiday (well done), you have worked hard at getting your summer body ready (good for you) and you’re ready to get your tan on (so are we!) But wait…have you found the perfect sunglasses to see you through the season? No? Hold up! Summer 2016 is all about irresistibly statement-making sunglasses and you simply can’t go into the sunny season without looking on point (we would never allow that!!) We’re talking big, flashy sunglasses that are good for anything but going unnoticed! Try any of these 5 major sunglass trends to instantly refresh your look:
1. Mirrored Lense
Check your hair and look superb all at the same time! Who needs that old portable mirror after all? The reflective mirror sunglass trend still stands from 2015, but instead of a plethora of colourful mirror lenses, this year it’s all about mirror colour- mirrored lenses. That’s a bit of a mouthful, so in other words, silver! You will love that they match with every outfit and provide an eye-catching, brightening effect around the face.

4. Cat Eye Frames
Cat eyes are nothing new, but there are no rules for the retro style that's made a big comeback. Cat-eyes offer a refreshing diversion from the ubiquity of square Wayfarer-ish frames and oversize Jackie-O-style glasses. What’s great about Cat Eyes is that they are quirky without being unflattering, and can add a minimal retro flair to any outfit.

5. Clear Frames
Transparent sunglass frames are the choice of minimalist hipsters around the world. Perfect for the person with a capsule wardrobe, who wants their sunglasses to match everything! Clear frames brighten the face and because they are colourless, don’t be scared to go for a pop of colour in the lens department.
