OK I’ve not had a new pair of sunglasses in ages, but decided it was more than the right time to change that up now we’ve had a bit of sun peeping through this Summer!
I always feel like I struggle when it comes to choosing a pair of sunnies. My eyebrows are quite thick, dark and bushy and I despise it went them sit too obviously above my sunglasses. The bigger the sunglasses, yet the more shaped so that they don’t take over my face, the better. I guess it’s due to my preference why I’m always drawn to shades that resemble the cat-eye style, which is exactly what I’ve gone for this time!
These new sunglasses I’m wearing in the photos here are from Layoners, an Italian inspired eyewear brand that offers trend-led and fashion-forward styles.
When I read their brand story, Layoners take pride that their product offerings come straight from the runways of Milano to the streets of New York. Layoners have worked to create an array of sunglasses that brings the perfect mix of refined haute couture and hottest street style trends, at prices that don’t break the bank.
I was super happy to spy on the Layoners site the widest variety of styles, even though I knew I was looking for a cat-eye style pair. Saying that, they offer everything from thick oversized frames, cat-eye and retro shapes, to modern and futuristic silhouettes. It takes a while to ensure you’ve seen everything they offer, as I for one didn’t expect the collections to be so big!
The pair I’m rocking are called Black Pearl, which I came across quite quickly and made a note of them as a potential favourite. The cat-eye style covers up my eyebrows but doesn’t really take over my whole face, so when they arrived I was mega happy with them! They have UV protection and 100% polarized lenses, and come with a sleek black case and cloth.
These cost 33.99 euros, which is approx £30-£31, which I feel isn’t too bad for a durable, well made pair that sit perfectly on my face and protect my eyes from the sun.
If you’re seeking some new sunglasses inspiration for the rest of the UK Summer, or are due to head off on a holiday now that lockdown restrictions are much more eased, I’d highly recommend checking out Layoners. They also offer mens styles too!
