Another classic sunglasses frame that hasn’t seen the end are aviators. Ever so chic and easy to wear, the aviator has again been updated because we’re not just seeing black or rose gold tints. These days, tints in yellow have started to make the rounds and while it might sound a bit ‘out there’, give it a shot because you’d be surprised at how easy they can be to wear and pull off!

If you thought oversized sunglasses were so 2004, then you’re sorely mistaken. Larger-than-life frames have come back and seem to be here to stay, at least for the SS21 season. If you think the trend isn’t for you, just know that after a sleepless night or a Zoom cocktail party that went too hard, hiding behind a giant pair of sunnies is the best beauty trick in the book!
