06 Apr Sunglasses trends for summer 2016

The clocks have sprung forward and the lighter nights are creeping in, so it’s about time we started thinking about the sunglasses we’ll all be wearing in the coming months!

Our customers like to have a little fun with sunglasses, thinking of them as a fashion accessory as well as a necessary item to protect our eyes from UV rays.

At Craven & Murray we stock a huge range of designer sunglasses that you can have to your prescription, so we’ve rounded up the latest trends in eyewear so you can get a head start on your summer look.

Invest in a neutral colour

Light frames in pale blue, dusky grey, nude and taupe are a common look in the designer ranges for 2016.

These pale and muted tones are inspired by sleek Scandinavian design and the colours found in nature to keep it simple and incorporate shades that go with everything.

Take a look at the new designer sunglasses from Tiffany & Co and Polo Ralph Lauren to introduce neutral frames to your look this year.

Sweet pastel shades

Baby pink, pale blue and soft lilac were among the brighter tones spotted on the spring and summer catwalks, and they are great colours for brightening up your wardrobe this spring and summer.

This feminine colour palette complements a range of looks, from a statement against an all-black outfit, to dressing up a floaty summer dress for an evening walk along the beach.

Try the Tiffany & Co range for beautiful, stylish frames in light pastel colours to achieve this look.

Take a look around

Round lenses make a bold statement in any frames, and the collections from a range of designers incorporate this shape for summer.

Aviators with round lenses have taken on a fresh look, and this shape suits both men and women equally.

Take a look at the collections from Chanel and Polo Ralph Lauren to incorporate a modern look with round frames this season.

Cat’s eye frames

Cat’s eye frames are glamorous and chic, and there are always plenty of sunglasses created in this stylish shape from a range of designers each season.

Add a modern touch of class to your look this summer with a traditional cat’s eye shape or make a true statement with a bright colour or embellished frame.

Chanel have added some sparkle to their cat’s eye collection, while Tom Ford, Polo Ralph Lauren and Maui Jim have a more traditional approach to the look.

Bigger is better

Some designers have decided that summer 2016 is the season to go big or go home!

Playful plastic frames come in all shapes and sizes, so the bravest fashionistas among us can make a true statement with sunglasses that say it all.

Chanel, Tom Ford, Tiffany & Co and Polo Ralph Lauren all have some fantastic sunglasses frames that truly announce that summer has arrived.
