When it comes to designer investments, I often find sunglasses are a great place to start. There’s something about a really great pair which can truly transform an outfit, and a well-placed accessory can make an affordable outfit look (and feel) a hundred times more expensive.
When it comes to buying sunglasses, I’m incredibly picky. Frames have to be chunky, over-sized and classic in shape. I hate anything too fiddly or identifiable, which is why I’ve fostered a bit of an obsession with Celine frames. Understated and elegant, their frames are classics which I pull out all year long. My most recent purchase are these Shadows. This two-toned is a fun update on my usual choice of tortoiseshell, and I’m obsessed with the navy fade, which will look as great when paired with a pair of jeans, as when they’re dressed up with a coat.
In my experience, Celine make some of the best quality sunglasses out there – chunky and sturdy enough to survive a few drops and falls, these have already established their spot in my handbag!
Celine Shadow Sunglasses are priced at £371 and are available here
