We’re almost at the end of our road folks. Soon we will be armed with everything we need to embrace the Toronto summer and hit the patios looking cool, sexy and bloody fabulous. But true fabulous status can absolutely not be reached without a crucial piece of armour. This essential appendage not only shields from the harsh rays, but also provides the perfect cover for people watching, and of course, some anonymity from the dreaded paparazzi; you know you’re going to end up on Instagram, Twitter and/or Facebook so you’d better be looking the part! We are of course talking about the humble sunglasses. No summer ensemble is complete without them, and we have a rundown on the styles your face should be sporting this summer.
What Goes aRound
Get your Brit cool on and snag yourself some circular frames. Channeling the iconic John Lennon look, these are the ultimate in retro shade chic. Chuck on a pair of skinny ankle grazers, an old concert tee and a pair of chunky heels, then top the look off with a pair of these bad boys… You’re so hip, it hurts!
What’s New Pussycat?
Sticking with the retro vibe, these shades will instantly turn you into the coolest cat on the block. Cat-eye shades are all the rage and pair perfectly with the high-waist/crop-top combo that is so prevalent this summer. Pull your hair back into a bouncy ponytail, slap on some red lippy and you’re all set to go to bag yourself the baddest boy in town.
The Bold and the Bedazzled
Bright colours and punchy prints are everywhere from dresses to trousers, shirts and sandals, purses and even playsuits. So, of course the trend has trickled over into the world of face-wear! Have some fun with your shade choices this summer. Choose colour and adornments to bring attention to your beautiful face and really stand out from the crowd!
