Sun's Out, Shades On - S/S18 Sunglasses Trends

Sun's Out, Shades On!

Summer has finally arrived, which means longer days, hotter weather and the sun is brighter than ever. A key accessory for this kind of weather is obviously sunglasses. Even though sunglasses have always been a trendy accessory when styling outfits, it is however more popular than ever. Just scroll down your Instagram feed and you will guarantee see, multiple fashion models, influencers, bloggers, you name it in the industry, wearing sunglasses to conclude their final outfit look, like a cherry on a cake. I even believe sunglasses can turn a basic outfit into something trendy, with the variety of styles we are now offered, it is just about finding a style that suits not only your face but your overall personal style.
As you can probably tell, I am a big fan of sunglasses and the owner of a rather large personal collection which comes in to use on a regular basis.
I have noticed that sunglasses designs are revolutionising fashion accessories today with designers having no boundaries in product creation and transforming basic frames to futuristic, avant-garde pieces of art as seen in this years S/S18 sunglasses trends.
So what are the key sunglasses trends this S/S18?

90s Micro

This sunglasses trend just screams the 1990s and is seen on literally everyone in the name of fashion and you can't deny that they are super edgy. These micro sunglasses are not the best style to protect your eyes from the sun due to their small size. Best worn on the bridge of your nose.
Styles include a variety of coloured lenses and frames shaped in cat eye, small round circular and rectangular frames. Seen at Prada and Miu Miu.

Oversized Maxi

This sunglasses trend is literally the opposite to the 90s Micro trend, as it is based on big oversized frames. This style is perfect for the none makeup days or for hiding a bad hangover, you won't have to worry these bad boys will definitely do the job in hiding the bags under your eyes. Seen at Marni, Saint Laurent, Fendi and Giorgio Armani.

Extra Diva

This trend is one of my favourites just because it is that EXTRA! Styles include dramatic, oversized futuristic frames, encrusted in diamonds and jewels, shaped as flowers, cards or designer branded logos. This trend has no boundaries and anything goes. It is the contemporary evolution of futuristic extremism in sunglasses design and it is the perfect bedazzled eyewear trend for all divas. Seen at Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Miu Miu.

You Heard It Here First: Sabo Skirt

You Heard It Here First: Sabo Skirt

Instagram is like a treasure box in terms of using it as a platform to discover new online fashion brands all over the world. I probably follow more fashion brands than men on Instagram (FACT). Recently I have been searching for potential Summer outfits for my upcoming holidays around Europe. I'm not sure if this is just me but I love coordinating my planned outfits in relation to the country I am visiting, for example using the countries traditional culture as outfit inspiration. So in my head I have an image of exactly the style I want to go for the only trouble is I don't know which brand sells these items or where to start to look for them, so what do I do, I research online. That is when I came across a GEM on Instagram, a brand that matched the exact Summer 18 style I was looking for and I thought I would share them with you.

Introducing you to the Australian fashion brand, Sabo Skirt.


About Sabo Skirt

Sabo Skirt is an Australian label founded by BFF's and sisters-in law Thessy and Yiota Koizoukas who are BTW in their 20's and are also on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, (Legit life goals). The brand originated from being a blog in 2011 but has now grown into its own empire due to their unique designs, brand originality, affordable prices and lets not forget their HUGE online fan base including their IG following of 1.6 million followers.

 Sabo Skirt sets their own trends with their statement feminine touch to all their designs. I love how they play around with materials in layering the fabrics in a flirty manner enhancing the female silhouette and adding additional details to complete the look with bows, frills and cute prints.
The brand as a whole has a very European vibe to it, eg, I would wear their cute stripy sailor dress with their straw hat in St Tropez and wear their polka dot cut-out dress with their matching hair scrunchie in Tuscany.

Their current collection includes womenswear products such as dresses, playsuits, knitwear, tops, bottoms, sets, swimwear, outerwear, accessories, sunglasses, bags, hats, jewellery and shoes. 
Their current collection includes:
