Style Safari – Retro Sunglasses guide

By Stefano on May 20th, 2013

With summer fast approaching (- or due to make an appearance any time now) your look is not complete without a set of shades. With so many different styles to choose from and plenty of good High Street versions at a fraction of the cost, some of the coolest ones right now have got to be retro inspired ones. Sunglasses have become iconic items in fashion terms, with certain styles becoming synonymous with particular famous people in history; From James Dean, Gregory Peck, to Roy Orbison and Karl Lagerfeld (- and not forgetting Tom Cruise in Top Gun, if we have to…) here’s our top 12 cool retro picks…

No-way-farers

There’s an urban myth that in London that you are never 8 feet away from a rat, it’s clearly bullshit but you try to get 8 feet away from a pair of Wayfarers this summer- you won’t. The number of companies ripping off the Ray Ban original is staggering with prices and quality ranging from £12 for a cheap pair from Topman up to £115 for a pair of Ray Ban’s from ASOS.

However if you’re like myself then you don’t want to wear this seasons equivalent of vermin but don’t want to spend £115 on some awesome but very breakable/losable/lendable sunny G’s. My suggested solution is these Cheap Monday Night Watch Wayfarers, cheap at 200 Krona (under £17) and looking more than your average Wayfarer with a squarer, more angled structure. These shades come in 3 colours: light turtle (pictured above), grey and black all available at Caliroots and though it is a bit of a snub having to pay the same again in P+P that you have for the glasses themselves (200 Krona) for £34 you have a pair of branded, wellmade Wayfarers that won’t make you cry if you drop ‘em under a bus.



Outfit picks

Love the Look: Coral shirt and navy shorts

Bit of a controversial choice this I’m sure, but for me this chap has got style in buckets. Coral was such a hit for women last year and the year before I hope it’s as big in menswear this year. It looks great with my other favourite colour, grey and is a surefire winner with all the washed out pastels we’re seeing at the moment.

Back to our Nipponese gentleman, his pairing of the shirt with a navy pair of shorts reveals his expert fashion nous and it’s set off wonderfully by his gold plaited belt. Now clock last years’ one hit wonder, the Wayfarer style sunnies and tell me he’s not your new style icon?

It’s almost but not quite spring, which means it’s time to stock up on madras shirts, short shorts and sunglasses. Topman are on the case, they have launched a range of sunnies in conjunction with Linda Farrow called ‘The Classic Sunglasses’.
As well as Linda Farrow the four other guest designers this season are Bernard Wilhelm, Oliver Spencer, Kim Jones and 0044. You can’t currently get the Kim Jones ones online but fear not I have it on good authority (aka the Topman press office) that there will be a delivery next week .

Top Five: High street sunglasses

By Isabelle on April 26th, 2007

Redavi
If you still own a pair of wrap-around shades throw them on the floor, them stamp on them. You can’t beat a classic pair of aviators for timeless chic, and theres lots of styles to choose from on the high street. Wayfarers are the latest style to make a comeback, and they’re great for adding a retro touch to any outfit. I’ve featured Monsoon’s aviators before, but these red ones are great for adding a subtle flash of colour. See after the jump for full selection and product links.
