Fashion Friday – The Ultimate Festival Sunglasses

Table of Contents

This week is a busy ones for music fans globally with festivals kicking off all over, we take a look at our favourite festival sunglasses out there. Including a daily competition we are running in celebration of festival season where we give away a pair of sunglasses to one lucky winner. The variety of different festivals around nowadays is incredible, from Glastonbury to chili festivals to festivals for your pooch the possibilities are endless.

While the possibilities of sunglasses are endless, festivals provide the perfect opportunity to experiment with some bolder colours. Hopefully the sun is shining wherever you are so your bright shades can really stand out in the crowd. Now is the opportunity to really push the boat out with some wilder designs, for example if you’re going to an electronic dance festival you could opt for something kind of futuristic with geometric lines. Maybe you’re heading to a festival on the beach, so we would suggest something with a blue lens to mirror the warm waters you are partying next to.

Blue lenses

These P3 Shadow Sunglasses in Bright Chrome Blue Gradient by Randolph Engineering are perfect for the aforementioned beach party. The blue round lenses give a slightly retro feel to the frame while the incredibly well crafted silver frames reinforce that American Air Force feel that is syonymous with Randolph Engineering. All of their products are hand made in America and are one of the most well made, durable sunglasses in the market. Want to know a bit more about the brand?

Most festivals involve a certain element of moving around, some more than others. If you are attending a particularly lively festival, maybe one in the mountains such as Snowbombing in the Austrian Alps. For this occasion, no brand is more suited than Smith Optics. A fresh new brand to B Sunglasses, Smith’s mantra is to help you fully enjoy whatever life throws at you and was originally set up as a snowboarding goggle brand but has since branched out in to sunglasses, utilising their impressive “Chromapop” lens technology. Shop the Smith Lowdown XL Sunglasses in Havana Yellow.


Gold is good for any occasion, but we think these gold aviators by Michael Kors are the perfect festival sunglasses due to their stand-out mirrored lenses. They are really easy to style with anything, and can look super retro and cool whilst still being on the classy side. The reflective gold mirror lenses will look amazing when the sun is shining or when the festival lights are bouncing off them.
