12 OTT sunglasses to put some spring in your SS20 wardrobe

There’s no sign of summer just yet, but these SS20 sunglasses will have us well prepared


People underestimate the humble sunglasses in the accessories world. They aren’t as celebrated as the statement shoe or the classic bag, and sure, they may not be as versatile as costume earrings or chunky rings (especially in Ireland, where, let’s face it, we don’t get a lot of sun) but sunglasses have the power to completely transform a look. Who among us doesn’t feel a complete confidence overhaul when we put on a pair of fabulous sunglasses?

When it comes to decorating your summer outfits with warm weather-ready sunglasses, the bigger the better. More is definitely more here — a ridiculously OTT pair of sunglasses can elevate any everyday outfit, from jeans and a t-shirt to a dress and heels. They go with everything, they’re so much fun to wear, and often, they’re the hardest working item in our accessories drawer.

In the market for some new frames before the summer hits? Here are some of our favourites.
