Gucci sunglasses are the ultimate in luxury and glamour and the brand is highly associated with only the most sophisticated and fashion aware individuals. The brand was founded by Italian designer Guccio Gucci in 1921 and the style remains classic yet constantly on trend. Gucci sunglasses include a great selection of oversized wrap style, aviators, and shields, all complete with the famous Gucci logo.
There are some gorgeous new additions for 2009 including the GG3034 D28 style in either jet black or with a brown tortoiseshell pattern. These are a simple but very dramatic style with thick frames and a bold logo on the hinge. You can imagine only the most dramatic A listers wearing a pair of these and celebrities such as Kylie Minogue, Lucy Lui and Gwenyth Paltrow have been seen wearing similar Gucci styles. The oversized GG3030 22D Gucci shades are a little different in the sense that the design experiments with a bold splash of blue. These are certainly an eye catching pair of sunnies without being to over the top, and are definitely great for a fresh summer look. The new aviator styles are also delicately beautiful and a little more subtle than the classic oversized styles.

Michael Kors watches are incredibly refined, distinctive and offer a beautiful range for ladies. What makes the brand so exquisite is the ability to make the manufacturing of the timepieces as discreet as possible, meaning that the watches are fantastically crafted and look aesthetically stunning. The watches are styled in such as way that they are elegant, sophisticated and classy, as great emphasis and care has been placed on the construction.
The range offers some fantastic tortoiseshell styles which add a bit of spark to the collection and something that many other designer brands do not seem to focus on. Tortoiseshell is great for jazzing up a plainer outfit such as a work suit and injects a bit of individuality. There is also a beautiful and delicate bracelet style watch in the collection which is wonderfully feminine. The watches are coloured in creamy and brown tones meaning they are versatile yet very unique.

It could have been dismissed as last season’s trend, but the Gladiator sandal has continued to make its mark in the category of must-have summer sandals.
At the start of spring it was all a bit touch and go, and those of us who’d bought into the foot fashion last summer were unsure as to whether we should be slipping our feet back into our Spartan sandals or if we were expected to steer clear. But then, as if by magic, the celebrities started stepping out; paving the way and continuing to stamp their approval on the Roman revolution.
Rather than an array of flats though, this season, footwear designers have pulled out all the stops and we’ve been plied with knee-high straps, tassle-tastic embellishments, leather discs, rope plaits and most shocking of all – high heels!
One celeb who can’t get enough Gladiator glory is Miss Gwyneth Paltrow. From Giuseppe Zanotti flats to sky high Givency ankle boots, her tootsies haven’t seen the likes of a filled-in shoe for quite some time. Also keen on the Colosseum craze are Kate Moss, Lindsay Lohan and Sienna Miller to name a few, and just last week Elle MacPherson was seen dropping her kids off at school in a pair – true model mum behaviour.
If you’re keen to put your best foot forward in some thongs, take into account your size and shape. If you’ve got long legs, you’ll be able to pull off the knee high styles no problem, but if you’ve got slightly shorter legs, a lower pair will be more flattering. Then it’s up to you to mix and match them with jeans, dresses and shorts – all of which work a treat with the trend. Colour-wise, metallic shades add to the Mediterranean look, but black and brown versions also add versatility.
The motto of the sandal season then – wear them high or wear them low, just make sure you invest in a pair of Gladiators if you want to keep your footing in the style stakes.
