I’ve got to be honest – I am over Winter, I can’t wait for Summer to arrive and with the great anticipation that I have I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t already well-prepared for what this Summer has to hold.

Although the UK is a place where realistically we don’t see an awful lot of sunshine, that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be prepared for those days when we do happen to have a little ray of sunshine peek out from behind the clouds, and if like me you are sincerely hoping for sunshine this Summer, then chances are that you will already be thinking about the appropriate sunglasses to tackle this task.

So looking at this Summer, what are the hottest trends? The best buys? The right purchases to make? Well here are my top five tips for sunglasses this Summer:

Ray Bans

Ray Bans are a brand that you can always depend on and regardless of the season you simply know that these are going to be in style. With classic designs including the Wayfarer and the Aviator you know that you can always get a timeless classic with a modern design from the Ray Ban range, and if you are looking for a pair of sunnies that really stands apart from the crowd then you can’t go far wrong with the choices that Ray Ban can offer you.


A good pair of Oakleys can often be the essential summer accessory and if you are looking for a brand of sunglasses that gives you great protection and looks fashionable at the same time, then you could have found just what you are looking for with a pair of Oakleys. One of the great features that Oakleys have is the ability to chop and change many elements of their design and this means integrating new colours, features and designs into the mix.


Not always at the forefront of market-leaders in the sunglasses industry, it’s easy to overlook the Bolle brand as a mid-class design and for this reason many people simply don’t rate it as a market leader in the sunglasses industry, but if you don’t want to spend hundreds of pounds on a pair of sunglasses then this design could be just what you are looking for to provide you with fashionable, safe glasses at a great price.


Another brand which doesn’t get an awful lot of air time is Persol, but this isn’t to say that it’s a brand that you should forget about – in fact if you are looking to stand out from the crowd then it’s often better to go with a brand which isn’t so well recognised! For something unique, different and still super stylish, Persol could be a great option for your wardrobe.

Michael Kors

I had to throw this in at the end, the truth is that my own sunglasses are Michael Kors and I’ve had them now for around six years with no problems whatsoever – I love them. They offer great protection and are stylish through any season, the ideal accessory and a great option for people who are looking for a timeless classic through a pair of sunglasses.
