All eyes are on 70s-inspired sunglasses this summer.
Accessories can elevate any type of look if styled the right way. These big, bold sunglasses? Well, they can take any casual look and add an instant dose of glamour.
Just recall how the disco decade’s divas wore their favourite oversized tinted shades. I’ll never forget Sophia Loren and her go-to glasses that covered half of her forehead, nor Brigitte Bardot’s iconic white frames.
And then there’s Jane Birkin — whom, in case you didn’t know the Hermes Birkin bag is named after — and her large rectangle sunglasses.
If you’re getting the urge to deck out yourself in full 70s garb, you’re not alone. Lyst has reported a growing demand for laid-back, bohemian 70s style pieces. It looks like our obsession will only grow now that summer’s arrived.
So we say hop aboard the trend and stock up on 70s sunglasses you can wear this season and beyond. We’ve found the best ones to get from the high street (and a couple of bonus designer options, if you’re looking to invest).
From oversized square shades to aviator-style frames, these sunglasses from ASOS, Mango, NA-KD, and more are on my wishlist.
