Summer is upon us, and so is the excitement and anticipation for a new season of style! I don’t know about you but by mid-march, I am already scoping out what is going to be in style this season, and what classic looks will be making a comeback.
Part of my anticipation for the season is always indulging in a new pair of sunglasses or two…or three. Who am I kidding, at one point I almost had a pair for every outfit in my wardrobe! Sunglasses are a staple of summertime and can truly take a look from zero to hero. They are a character-defining staple for an outfit. When you think of Tom Cruise in Top Gun you don’t just imagine plain old Tom Cruise, you imagine him in that sexy pair of Aviators. When you think of Audry Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s I can guarantee you imagine Aubry with her pair of Manhattan’s perfectly balanced on her nose.
What I’m saying is: you can’t be ready for summer without sunglasses, which is why I was so excited when Warby Parker reached out to me and asked me to check out their new Summer Sun Collection. Along with the Summer Sun Collection, you can also check out their full fabulous range HERE
The Summer Sun Collection is a wonderful mix of fun, colourful frames that are still flexible to your everyday lifestyle. I love how classic all the frames are, they truly last the test of time.
On a side note, they also offer prescription lenses in just as many high quality and fabulous styles. This makes me very happy since I wear prescription glasses/sunglasses and finding a drool-worthy pair is always a jackpot.
As I drooled over the amazing frames, I was inspired to pair them with some of my favourite summer looks.
They really do have a pair to match any outfit or style with their Summer Sun Collection. It has a perfect mix of polished, classy frames, as well as more eccentric, bright ones.
My first look is my take on the restyled, classic trend: The Canadian Tuxedo. Denim on top and denim on the bottom. As it is a classic style, it should only be paired with the perfect pair of classic sunglasses: Elle or Jones.
Both of these frames drew me in from the start. Both black and tortoiseshell are great to pair with any outfit. Dress them up, or dress them down, you will be on trend no matter what.
I wore my favourite 80’s style jean shirt from Forever 21, and paired it with my vintage torn jeans from Hollister.
My next look is a popular trend for the festival season, or casual fun day out. By pairing fun bright patterns with fun bright frames, you will feel unstoppable from dusk til dawn in Flynn.
This particular frame is definitely one of my top picks. The blue tint on Flynn caught my eye right away and makes it the perfect accessory for a fun summer outfit. The pink frame is also my top pick simply because this girl loves pink! 😛
I paired my favourite Rose Kimono from Forever 21 with black cut off shorts. Since the Kimono is such a big piece, I keep whatever is underneath it simple so it doesn’t get too ‘busy’ looking and still compliments my sunglasses. I decided to wear a simple white T-shirt from H&M paired with my favourite pink cap from Forever 21. My cut-offs are a pair of Guess jeans that got the chop and I ironed on a happy little robot patch to add some character.
Last but not least, for those warm summer evenings filled with laughter and *hopefully* delicious food and drinks.🥂 The perfect elegant night out must be paired with the ever so elegant Haskell or Aubrey.
I love dresses that can be worn casually or easily dressed up. This little black dress from Forever 21 is my go-to. It has a flattering cut and being black it easily goes with anything. I paired this with my silver and black gladiator sandals. A little pop or chrome or colour goes a long way with a black dress. Overtop I have worn my Material Girl dress shirt for when it gets a tad chillier in the evening.
Both these sunglasses are a perfect pair because of their versatile frames. They easily switch from casual day to evening ready glam just like that.
These are my 3 favourite outfits for summer so far!
