Sunglasses, The most important accessory

Sunglasses are extremely practical but also have the skill of elevating a look to stylish and sophisticated.

The ‘IT’ accessory, sunglasses are the basic necessity for anyone that’s got style, everyone should have at least one pair in their wardrobe.

The earliest references to sunglasses to protect the eyes from the suns glare is with the Roman emperor Nero, it is said that he wore polished gems to watch gladiator fights.

In the 20th and 21st century UV protecting sunglasses have become a staple to everyone’s wardrobes.

We think you should own between 2-3 pairs, This will ensure you have a pair appropriate for all occasions, outfits and seasons.

You should generally have a black and a tortoises shell pair as they go with everything and cover all bases within your collection.

You can then branch out for more adventurous colours to go with other items in your wardrobe.

Go for quality.
