Sunglasses are never out of fashion. You can wear them any day and on occasion. Sun or cloud, sunglasses can be worn as a simple and effortless fashion accessory to add more style to any casual wear. All you need to do is to put on a pair and et voila—your look is transformed and complete.
When did sunglasses become a fashion accessory?
When sunglasses were introduced in the 1920s, they were worn by the regular people like you and me as a simple fashion accessory. Back then, sunglasses were used only for extreme water adventures and snow sports. They were also mostly associated with people who worked in the travel industry, such as pilots and aviators.
Between the '50s and the '60s, Hollywood stars started wearing sunglasses to conceal their identities from the intrusive paparazzi and their exploding light bulbs. Since sunglasses were been adapted by Hollywood stars, they have been then associated with fashion and glamour.
From then on, sunglasses have become a fashion staple on the runways and a trendy accessory that can transform your look!
How can sunglasses transform your look?
Depending on the type of the sunglasses you choose, you can instantly transform your look! The shape and color of the frames can have a big impact on your overall look and feel, and the image you project. With the right pair of sunglasses, a basic outfit can go from giving out a casual to an edgy and sophisticated one! Here are a few ways you can transform your look with sunglasses!
1. Give your look a pop with coloured sunglasses
If you’re someone who owns a wardrobe that mainly consists of classic colours and likes to stay away from flashy and bright colours, you may find yourself blending into the background and wishing for a little colour to accentuate your look from time to time. A pair of sunglasses with coloured frames or bright reflective mirrored lenses can really make your outfit pop and add that vibrant touch to dark coloured ensemble. Bright coloured sunglasses will add that touch of colour to your classic outfit, giving a unique edge to your look and making an effortless fashion statement.
