You know when you're walking down the street and you're enjoying the sunshine... and then you run into a pole because the sun blind-sided you? Where were your sunglasses when you needed them?
They're probably black, inside a black case and lost inside your black bag, which is full of black bits and pieces. Well, luckily for you, this year is all about brightly coloured, statement sunglasses – guaranteed not to get lost in the bottomless abyss you call your handbag, and not just because you won't ever want to remove these beauties from your face.
Whether you want Harry Potter-style circular frames or a modern twist on the classic cat's eye, there's literally something for everyone, as long as you're not afraid of bold colours and quirky embellishments.
Karen Walker and Ksubi have released some particularly excellent statement sunnies that will flatter most face shapes and if you're on a budget, check out Le Specs and MinkPink, who always produce fabulously on-trend sunnies for reasonable prices.
If you're still a little nervous, why not start with quirky frames in black or tortoise shell or go for a frame shape you know suits you in a bright colour? We're loving the modern cat's eye frames from the Graz and Ellery collaboration and the purple glitter Dolce & Gabbana shades.
What do you think of these colourful statement sunnies?
