Accessorize with mirrored sunglasses

Sunglasses might seem like a summer-only staple, but they can become a winter necessity perfect for protecting your eyes from the glare of the sun, especially while driving. Walk out in style and make an icy statement with reflective shades. Here is a little styling advice.

Choose your colour:  While many fashionistas go for dark-tinted shades, this trend covers the whole spectrum. Go for a mod look with mirrored sunglasses in neon frames or choose pastel colours. You will look fabulous if you stick to a classic shape like an aviator or Ray-ban pair as the reflective tint is trendy enough on its own.

Try a top knot: All eyes will remain on your standout shades if you choose a simple hairstyle. It is easy to find a chic top knot tutorial online that is funky and simplistic to elevate your whole look. A chic updo is perfect for a workout, on the job style or holiday traveling.

Complement with extras: Amp up the shine on your sunglasses by topping your whole outfit with a few awesome accessories. For example, you can tie up your neon green aviators with darker shades of emerald or blue touches in a blanket-sized scarf you wrap around your neck. Keep everything cohesive by choosing colors in the same family without being too matchy-matchy. Finally, add a pop of bold lip color for one last touch.

Go oversized: Not only are oversized jackets one of the coziest things on the planet, but it’s also one of the chicest. Paired with skinnies, or trousers—the oversized fit is so on-trend right now, you can practically wear it with anything and get away with it. A pair of perfectly round shades lends a hippie feeling to this otherwise basic style of jacket and jeans. Also known as “teashades,” this trendy shape hasn’t changed much since models made them part of their signature look for fashion week.

Stick to the basics. A dress paired with a blazer is just about the easiest combo to throw on in the morning especially if both are the same colour, and yet, it can look just about as fresh and fashion-forward as any complicated mixed-print outfit. Going monochrome is trendy nowadays and you can flatter your outfit with simple black sandals, as well as pumps, flats, or even your favourite sneakers. Don’t forget, dark shades also add a jolt of coolness to it.

Play with contrasting colors: Nothing makes an outfit pop like the addition of contrasting hues. If you already added a dash of red to your mixed print separates and the result is the perfect mix of retro and modern, you can get more creative by swapping your simple sunglasses for bold color or print. Funky frames in citrus hues are practically made for brightening your day. Don’t worry about matching a statement color with your outfit—mirrored shades can totally hold their own solo and your outfit will do the rest.
