Unlike clothing and hair trends that change from season to season, sunglasses styles seldom undergo any major seasonal changes. I mean look at the Rayban Wayfarers and Aviators that are still seen on tonnes of celebs from LA to London (The Olsens, Kate Moss, Sienna Miller to name but a few). But that doesn’t mean you can get away with just any old style this summer season.

Selecting the right pair of retro-style sunglasses is crucial. Thick, plastic frames harking back to the 1970s are making it big this season, taking over from the ever-popular 1980s style of 2007. This doesn’t mean that the acid brights of the 1980s aren’t in trend anymore, because they are! Confused? Choose a pair of thick framed bright coloured sunglasses and you’re sure to be bang on trend.
