Iconic Sunglasses

Summer or winter, every woman has at least one pair of sunglasses in her accessories armoury – they shield us from the sun as well as hide sleepless nights and the occasional hangover. Here’s an edit of our favourites…

By Petro and Laura

Jimmy Choo£319

Laura owns these and they always draw compliments when she wears them. The rhinestone detail somehow makes them work both in the city and on the beach; they’re great on oval and long faces

Ray-Ban£125

The most classic of the lot, you really can’t go wrong with a pair of iconic Ray-Ban Wayfarers. Laura has had hers for years and they suit pretty much everyone who tries them on

J. Crew£59

These cat’s eyes are very similar to the Jimmy Choo pair Petro bought this winter. Pale pink gives them a retro edge and they look good on fair skin; they also work well in winter-ski sun

Céline£229

Laura has this pair and always raves about them. Classic, cool shades that scream effortless style and suit almost every face shape

Gucci£240

This pair haven’t actually made it yet but they’re on the trigger-buy button. Oversized, 60s and tan – these practically have Icons engraved on them

Valentino£200

Two-tone is the easiest way to add an interesting edge to a plain swimsuit. Laura has a tan and cream Laura Imami pair, while Petro has turquoise and tortoiseshell ones from Stella McCartney
