Ray Ban have been my favourite brand of sunglasses for a while now but since they cost a lot of money, it’s not often I can buy a pair just like that. I usually save my money for things like bags, jeans or shoes as I take into consideration that living in England doesn’t always give you the opportunity to wear sunglasses so it’s not a purchase which I could wear all the time.
I wanted to spend my birthday money on a pair of new sunglasses that will be a classic and ones I can wear all the time no matter what outfit I am wearing. I already have a pair of the Cats 5000 in pink glitter, which I wear often, and some brown Aviators with gold frames. I find the metal frames to be really delicate so I do prefer the plastic as I can be incredibly clumsy.
I’ve narrowed my choices down to 5 sunglasses. I was going to include the classic Wayfarers but they really don’t suit my face shape and I find them too masculine since I a very girly girl. I do love them though but I don’t think they are the sunglasses for me. I never used to be a fan of the tortoise colour as I found it awkward, but over time I have grown to love it. It’s funny how your opinions change so much isn’t it? I think tortoise might be more suited to me because I have pale skin and I am blonde, I find black is too harsh on my face so I try to avoid wearing it as much as I can.
So, I love the cats eyes shape sunglasses as I think they are quirky but they look classic at the same time and I love the colours (images 1 and 2) and the Jackie Ohh II have been a pair that I have liked for ages due to the oversized frames (image 3). The wider shaped red gradient sunglasses (image 4) I am unsure on, I love the colour but I think the shape might be too wide for my face and the last ones (image 5) are the Cats 5000 in tortoise. I already have this frame so I know it suits my face and I thought the colour would be more classic. Which ones do you like the most? I’m kind of leaning towards the cats eyes ones I think.
