TLSE Trends: Spring Shades
Well, it's happened - Spring has finally sprung! Yeah yeah I know, we've all heard the news reports that La Nina isn't done with us yet. (I'm beginning the think La Nina is a bit of a cranky bitch, to be honest.) However, in Sydney right now the temperature has definitely been warming up and some of the days lately have been truly spectacular, and that is really exciting!
Last year we came out of lockdown in Sydney on the 11th of October, pretty much halfway through Spring. And then, in a cruel twist of fate, the Omicron outbreak followed right as we neared Christmas, with most people either testing positive or in a sort of self-imposed lockdown for most of the Summer trying to avoid it. So, I think it's fair to say, we ALL deserve to enter into this season with a sense of fun and freedom, and really looking forward to the good times the future is going to bring us.
In the spirit of looking forward, and looking cool, I felt the perfect way to honour Spring was a TLSE Trends article dedicated to sunglasses. Not only essential for protecting our peepers from the harsh Australian UV rays but the perfect accessory to any daytime outfit, sunglasses are both a fashionable and functional item. So, here are our TLSE picks for the hottest sunnies this Spring...
Inspired by the earthy tones of the Australian coast, these shades will take you through the seasons.
With a timeless and chic look, the Bones is a mid-size frame with clean lines and a bevelled brow. Featuring branded metal temple caps and OBE fixed hinges for a premium, high-quality finish.
Wearing these feels like the first warm spring days, bathing in sunshine, the smell of fresh flowers, birds singing sweet nothings.
With their strong attitude and retro flair, these West round sunglasses feature a dual-tone havana frame combined with gradient brown lenses for a look that is both classic and effortlessly chic.
Classic vintage style aviators crafted in high-quality recycled black acetate with contrasting orange lens with Category 1 UV protection.
The Dixie is a vintage-inspired aviator made from choc tort acetate paired with a cinnamon-coloured lens. This style not only ﬂatters the face, but the colour combination makes it the ultimate staple piece.
