If you think that sporty and glam can’t go together in one look, then we have just the accessory to prove you wrong! The whole laid-back luxe trend is huge at the moment – it’s great for when you want to infuse a burst of sparkle into your everyday look; keeping it casual but striking.
Adidas have got the look spot on with their new Cambridge watches. Available in a variety of colours including hot pink and violet in addition to your staple black and white versions, these watches are perfect for making a statement and are effortlessly trendy.
If you like your watch on the larger side, the Adidas Cambridge watches are a great option. If you also can’t resist a bit of sparkle, even better, as the hot pink and violet versions boast diamante embellished bezels. Some of the Cambridge styles also come without diamante studs – the Cambridge watches are unisex and not all guys, or girls for that matter, always want the bling effect so both tastes are catered for! The Cambridge watches incorporate all the regular Adidas functions including three hand movement and a date window and are ultra sleek with the style versatility to work with every look.
If you prefer a watch that is a little smaller, the Mini Cambridge Adidas watches, as the name suggests, are scaled down versions of the Cambridge watches. Again, some options within the Mini Cambridge collection feature a diamante-studded bezel whilst others are left plain. The rubber straps inject a casual and trend inspired edge and the dials are sleekly and minimally designed; displaying the iconic Adidas logo at the top centre.
These new Adidas watches perfectly build the bridge between sporty and glam and are an incredibly hot style of watch to be wearing this season. They’re great for dressing up a casual look, whilst also adding a more laid-back feel to a dressed up outfit. Best of all, they’re budget friendly at between £39-£46.80 each!

If you are looking for something that extra bit special in a pair of sunglasses, then you need look no further than the Oakley brand. A fine combination of unique, innovative style and incomparable function, Oakley has a distinct vision all of its own and embodies the notion that only the best is good enough.
Part of the reason why Oakley has become so renowned and respected in the eyewear industry is because of its polarization technology. Many of the Oakley styles ranging from the fashionable Oakley Frogskins through to the exclusive, statement and sports orientated Pit Boss sunglasses incorporate Oakley’s High Definition Optics and Polarized lenses. Oakley’s High Definition Optics (or HDO) provide the ultimate in visual clarity and effectively eliminate any distortion. Often a pair of standard lenses will slightly distort images whereas HDO lenses enable to you see everything exactly where it is.
Polarized lenses then work to enhance the effect of HDO by balancing light transmission and blocking out glare which can be potentially damaging to the eyes. A huge number of professional athletes including Jake Halstead and Ryan Sheckler opt for Oakley sunglasses with polarized lenses and HDO because they help to maximise performance and always keep the eyes and face protected from harmful rays whilst on the go.
However, Oakley also appreciates that even if you prefer a more fashion forward pair of shades, you may also want to enjoy the superior Oakley technology and therefore a number of the ultra stylish Oakley sunglasses such as the chic and oversized Abandon ladies sunglasses, and the demure, versatile and super sophisticated unisex Square Whisker sunglasses, all have versions available that include polarized lenses.
Part of the reason why Oakley has become so popular is that it provides style options for every sport requirement whilst also creating a superb range of more fashion and trend led designs. Made using lightweight materials including the highly durable C-5 alloy for the slimmer wire style frames, to the robust O Matter frame as seen in some of the more bold designs that require that extra impact resistance, every part of every pair of Oakley sunglasses through to the frame, fit, aesthetic detailing and lens is designed with the wearer in mind and aims to create the best visual quality and experience possible.
Here at Shade Station we have an extensive collection of Oakley sunglasses available including some of the most iconic designs such as the Oakley Jawbone to the high tech Split Thump sunglasses which innovatively allow you to listen to music and communicate whilst on the go!
So why not check out the entire Oakley sunglasses collection and see the world through the truly unique Oakley eyes!

Michael Kors is very much a leading lady type of label. Glamorous, sophisticated and expensive, it is favoured by Hollywood’s A-list and even the First Lady herself. Since the Obama’s entered the White House, Michelle Obama has often been snapped wearing Kors to black tie events, which has helped the label enjoy a massive surge in popularity amongst everyday women.
Kors began designing from an early age and set up his own company ‘Michael Kors’ in 1981. Whilst steering his label to success he also found time to take on the role of Creative Director at French design house, Celine. He oversaw proceedings at Celine for 6 years between 1997 and 2003, during which time he established a critically acclaimed ready-to-wear womenswear line and put Celine firmly on the fashion landscape.
When he left in 2003 it was to concentrate his efforts on his own expanding label. Among the Kors firmament is his very successful watches and accessories line. Which Shade Station will naturally concentrate on here!
We know we bang on about designer watches being a great substitute for a ‘way-beyond our price tag’ designer frock, but it really is true. Michael Kors dresses can cost in their thousands where as a Michael Kors watch will you set back between £55 and wait for it….. £500! For a really special dress watch it’s worth splashing out on a little designer bling. There’s nothing worse than seeing a beautiful outfit teamed with a below par watch. Michael Kors watches are elegant, shiny and the perfect accompaniment to a posh dinner date.
There are many different styles of Michael Kors watches and most of them have pretty highly polished bracelet straps or linked straps. There’s an abundance of silver and gold plate and there’s rose gold, tortoiseshell and even some bright colours thrown in too. All the dials feature the Michael Kors logo for a little extra designer prominence.
As with some of our other designer watch brands, Michael Kors watches fit the bill perfectly for party season glamour. So if you’re looking for an extra little sparkle this Christmas, make sure you consider Kors for stylish wrist embellishment!

Whilst the world of fashion has suffered a great loss, Alexander McQueen’s collections are still incredibly prominent and the streets (especially in London) can be seen adorned with style icons and fashionistas rocking his trademark skull print scarves, jewellery, clothing and sunglasses. We are extremely excited to announce that the Alexander McQueen sunglasses collection has arrived at Shade Station and is the perfect expression of the designer’s amazing talent for sharp style and his sense of imagination.
McQueen was always regarded as an elaborate expressionist and combined the use of unusual materials and fine craftsmanship to create his iconic pieces. The collection of Alexander McQueen sunglasses are definitely reflective of this with each pair also featuring the iconic skull emblem either on the temple or positioned on the arm. Alexander McQueen sunglasses are luxuriously distinctive; fusing bold, exquisite colours and textures and designed in statement and ultra glamorous oversized shapes with fine attention to detail including elaborately finished and uniquely shaped arms and thick frames. Sleek oversized aviators and butterfly inspired shapes are also aesthetic themes that we see within the range and depict McQueen’s flair for statement style entwined with his love of elegant, romantic twists.
Alexander McQueen sunglasses are a huge hit among a number of style icons and celebrities. Catherine Zeta Jones has been spotted wearing a pair whilst Jessica Simpson and Heidi Klum are also fans. Cheryl Cole also sported a pair from the collection when filming the recent X Factor auditions.
If you are looking to make a bold style statement this season, then a pair of Alexander McQueen sunglasses will do the job perfectly. A fine expression of the designer’s personality and extraordinary talent, each and every pair is unique and dynamic in variety, colour, depth and style.
