Woman with shades

The sun may be shining at the moment, but how long until the days become shorter and the skies become significantly more grey…not long at all.

There are some accessories that are season specific, but sunglassess are not one of them. Yes, I know they are designed to shield your eyes from the glare of the sun’s rays, but they are also great for disguising eye bags, hiding behind after a big night out and of course, upscaling an outfit to total diva status…

The art is in the choosing – finding sunglasses that you can wear throughout the seasons is not easy. Go too light and they may not work in the winter months, go too dark or heavy and they may weigh down that summer dress. Below are a few that are just right for all year wear, chosen from online retailers www.smartbuyglasses.co.uk.
