Do you have different sunglasses for different types of outfit?
Been wearing cat eye tortoiseshell ones for about three years however bought a black pair to go with an abroad wedding outfit recently. I don't like them as much and will probably forget about them and lose them...
No, one pair of plain tortoiseshell which goes with anything, they are comfy, suit me, sit on my head well, inexpensive and easily replaceable if lost. No metal trim or logos, plain tortoiseshell arms.
yep, tortoiseshell cat eye style, yellow and pink Boden, just ordered some black ones in &otherstories sale (only �11), various cheapo M&S etc from over the years. I love sunglasses. Never get super expensive but kind of upmarket high street as I don't like really flimsy ones. Hate aviators. Don't like any with anything metallic at all.
Last year, after DH stood on my lovely old sunglasses, I found a pair in primark for Â£1 that really suit me shape wise. This year they've brought out the same shape in 6 new colours, so I've bought them all!
Depending on my mood I'll match or clash my sunglasses to my outfit.
I have a few pairs, not to go with outfits but just because. But I always end up wearing the same old tortoise shell ones that are horribly dated. The lenses in them are phenomenally comfortable and I can't bear looking theough the others. Expensive crap
I have two pairs of Rayban Wayfarers, one black, and one tortoiseshell. I also have a pair of navy framed DKNY ones that I bought as an emergency hide behind hungover after a hen night. I can't wear any of them now because I need prescription lenses (eyesight has deteriorated alarmingly), so have a pair as close to the black wayfarers as possible. I asked optician about getting prescription lenses put in Rayban frames, but it wasn't possible.
