Chic shades are a total summer must. The right sunglasses do so much more than protect your eyes from the sun; they hide tired eyes, cover a makeup-free face, and work wonders at finishing off your look. If you didn't already know (and to be honest, I only just found out), ClearlyContacts.ca is THE place to buy sunnies this summer. They have loads of choices, offer free shipping on orders over $99, and right now, all designer shades are 50%(!) off until July 22nd. You're welcome/I'm sorry :) :(
If you need a little help narrowing down the endless options, Derek Desierto, the official stylist and in-house designer for ClearlyContacts.ca, can help. Here, he shares some of his favourite summer sunnies:
Derek Cardigan Sunglasses in Birch, $49.99, ClearlyContacts.ca
If you’re the type to notice what the celebs are hiding behind, you’re no stranger to translucent frames. Nude and blush tones are the hottest shades this season. Subtle and stylish, these Derek Cardigans suit almost any face shape. Reach for these along with a printed dress, chunky wool cardigan, and your favourite ankle boots to rock the look.
Ray-Ban Clubmaster, $124.95, ClearlyContacts.ca
Keep it classic in these timeless Ray-Ban Clubmaster sunglasses. These shades are ideal for an afternoon ride on a vintage cruiser. Try them with a loose button down shirt, bright coloured slim pants and ballerina flats.
Tom Ford Bailey Sunglasses, $128.92, ClearlyContacts.ca
Sleepless night? Oversized sunglasses are masking some of the most stylish camera shy, sleep-deprived faces this season. These retro style sunnies don’t just rely on their size to make a statement. Keeping on trend with the irresistible cat-eye shape, these Tom Ford’s are the best date to any patio party. Pair with a soft chiffon dress and toughen up with a leather jacket and you’ll be ready to roll.
