Living in the tropics means having to enjoy summer almost all-year-round. Temperatures may have dropped for the last few months but now it's starting to pick up again. It's a signal for us to start preparing our wardrobe for brighter days ahead. Before everything else, start with the most essential summer accessory — sunglasses. Not only does a pair of sunglasses protect your peepers from the harsh sunlight but it can also elevate your outfit like no other. Refresh your style and update your sunnies collection with the latest trends. From retro silhouettes to bold prints, here are the most interesting sunglasses designs this season.
Glam '60s cat eye
Prada eyewear collection, Price unavailable
Popularised by Audrey Hepburn, the cat eye sunglasses became the actress' signature eyewear after being famously photographed in 1951 at Sussex Beach donning the unique design. Decades later, the retro silhouette is making a comeback once again. This time, it's embellished in animal prints with leopard being the most popular choice.
Gentle Monster Boogie, SGD396/~USD293.05
Another classic design that's being revived by style enthusiasts is the aviator. Practical and stylish, it's a great choice for everyday wear. For a more modern look, choose one with sleek metal temples and lens with playful tints. You can match this versatile pair with fun, summer outfits like floral sundresses or bright tank tops.
