Autumn is a strange time of year. Everyone is just getting past the summer hangover. No one is quite sure what they should be wearing, it’s not cold enough for your parka but the T-shirt weather ship has certainly sailed. People who are way too enthusiastic about Christmas are getting really excited for Christmas, some even starting to creep the Christmas songs in somewhere. But for the rest of us Autumn seems to mean the days are getting significantly shorter and the mornings a lot cooler. However the most defining feature of Autumn for everyone is the colour. American’s call it Fall for good reason, and as all of the leaves die off they cast a beautiful sea of browns and yellows across the country. This means in terms of your outfit, a lot of deep greens, browns and yellows can come in to play and you can think about breaking out the knitwear.
Inspired by the beautiful colours of Autumn, here is a selection of sunglasses perfect for those long walks, morning drives to work with the low sun, and weekends away.
Persol Metal Bridge Round Sunglasses in Havana Crystal Green.
The first pick is from Persol’s new Calligraphy collection, the Metal Bridge Round Sunglasses in Havana Crystal Green are a beautiful take on a classic style. Persol is one of the oldest eyewear companies in the world. The name is derived from “per il sole,” which, in Italian, means “for the sun”, and it continues to grow as one of the most recognised makers of high-quality eyewear.
Jimmy Choo Dema Sunglasses in Havana
British high fashion house Jimmy Choo has been making luxurious shoes, handbags and accessories such as these Dema sunglasses since 1996. The browns used in the sunglasses along with the metal embossed detailing on the frames make these the perfect statement piece this Autumn.
Fendi Orchidea Cateye Sunglasses in Havana Palladium
The iconic Karl Lagerfeld has long captained the Fendi ship, continuing to create lavish, contemporary and stylish designs in everything he does. This season his sunglasses are no different. These Fendi Cateye’s will likely be a best seller, and are sure to sell out quick. Forever popular among fashionistas and bloggers, the Fendi sunglasses are always a crowd-pleaser.
Hugo Boss Wooden Temple Keyhole Square Sunglasses in Horn Brown Blue
These wooden temple sunglasses from Hugo Boss are a perfect addition to your Autumn wardrobe. Adding something a bit different, the wood brown compliments the blue lenses perfectly while the classic keyhole frames add a bit of class. The colour of these sunglasses is almost reminiscent of bonfire night, while the style will certainly look great all year round.
Arabella Sunglasses in Blonde Havana & Holt Sunglasses in Havana Gradient Both by Tom Ford
Both very different from each other, but both a great addition to an Autumn look. The Arabella sunglasses are becoming an increasingly popular Tom Ford style and the Blonde Havana works perfectly with the shape. The oversize frames stand out yet are easy to style. The Holt sunglasses are a fairly new style from Tom Ford and the metal bar adds quite a masculine look to the sunglasses. The two tone colour-way really sets these sunglasses apart, though.
Saint Laurent SL 132 Sunglasses in Black
Saint Laurent continues to push boundaries, these SL 132 sunglasses in Black are a testament to that. The oversized geometric shape of the frames make the sunglasses really stand out, while the 56mm lenses are a subdued brownish grey, perfect for those Autumn days.
Stella McCartney Falabella Square Sunglasses in Light Havana
Certainly one of this seasons favourite’s, the Stella McCartney Falabella sunglasses epitomise everything that has made Stella McCartney the fashion icon she is today. The glamorous chain detailing on the front of the sunglasses looks amazing when combined with this light Havana colour. A must have addition to any fashion savvy individual this Autumn.
