INSIDE REISS: SUNGLASSES ARE OUT

23.07.12

What do your sunglasses say about you? Here at Reiss HQ we've been dusting off our sunnies in preparation for a week of good weather. From cats eye styles through to aviators and wayfarers, the inside of Reiss Towers is like a sunglasses showroom today, but what does your choice say about your style?

VINTAGE:

The square frame and faded lens of these vintage sunnies give them a chic, 70s vibe. Channel the decadent glamour of Donna Summer and Bianca Jagger by wearing with wide leg pyjama pants, big brushed-out hair and a disco soundtrack in your head.

WAYFARER:

The skinny jeans of the sunglasses world, the Wayfarer speaks of a rock and roll attitude and laissez-faire approach to life. Pair with buttoned-up shirts, vintage band t-shirts and worn-in Converse for authentic with-the-band style.

CATS EYE:

You love the elegant style of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly and defer to dresses over jeans any day of the week. Cats eye sunglasses hark back to the glamour of 1950s Hollywood with summers spent in Saint Tropez. Pair with polka dots, heels and scarlet lips.

AVIATOR:

From Johnny Depp to Magnum PI, the aviator is one of those styles which can work with a whole host of looks. Our favourites are these by Ray Ban, with their faded lenses and slim gold frame. Pair with a lightweight blazer and chinos for some authentic Italian elegance, or make like Tom Selleck in a Hawaiian tee and washed denim shorts.
