12 Pairs Of Classic Sunglasses To See You Through Winter

It's time to throw some shade.

Winter’s chilly mornings may be on the horizon, but that’s no excuse to now ditch your sunnies.

While they might be considered a warm-weather staple, there’s no doubt that a pair of sunglasses are an investment piece that never loses their allure.

A classic way to instantly uplift almost any outfit, a new pair of shades are one of those accessories you can repeatedly wear all year round. Nevertheless, whatever your preference, choosing a flattering pair of frames that tick all the style (and comfort) boxes is a daunting task.

To assist you in this seemingly endless quest, we’ve rounded up our favourite styles of sunglasses guaranteed to keep you looking stylish all year long.

1. Cat Eye 


Upswept frames are the one style that has stood the test of time and compliment almost every face shape. Adorned by our favourite celebrities such as Selena Gomez and Kourtney Kardashian, we don’t expect to see this style of frame going anywhere anytime soon.

3. Oversized Sunglasses

Perfect for those with a stronger jawline or a square face shape, round or circular sunglasses act as a perfect juxtaposition. Worn by Hollywood’s A-list like Gigi Hadid and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, there’s no harm in investing in a timeless pair. 
The Wanderers

Italian-made and crafted with Italian acetate frames and brass metal arms, the La Furore glasses have an easy, unisex, laid-back design that are the perfect accompaniment for your everyday life or for your wandering.

They would be perfect standing on your tiny balcony in Furore, facing the most enormous of sunsets, the Amalfi Coast stretching out gold and blue before you. Carved by the cascading waters of the Schiato River over centuries, the narrow inlet is the perfect space to wade into the water before you remember that there is freshly baked bread and hand-picked olives being delivered to your beach chair by local vendors.
