Falling in love could see you starting to look at the world through rose-tinted glasses, but it would seem the latest trend for lovebirds is to actually start sporting matching specs. Only yesterday Kelly Osbourne and new beau Luke Worrell were seen hand-in-hand wearing identical yellow and purple sunnies. Catching up on a spot of shopping in Beverley Hills before they met up with Mrs O, we hope the Chanel boutique managed to dissuade the young lovers from buying exactly the same outfits too. It’s not the first time they’ve been snapped looking like peas in a pod either; last month they both left a Covent Garden nightclub wearing heart-shaped shades.
But it’s not just Kelly and Luke that have been doing a Posh and Becks. Model of the moment Agyness Deyn and best bud, fashion designer Henry Holland have also been pictured wearing near-identical shades, (and shirts, shorts, shoes and hairstyles), and Paris Hilton and Benji Madden have also been accused of falling victim to the latest fashion.
So why is wearing the same specs so appealing, and is there such a thing as unisex sunglasses? Well it would seem the answer is yes! Whether you’re rocking the androgynous look á la Deyn, or simply fancy borrowing your other half’s stylish sunnies, unisex shades won’t leave you looking out of place. And they’re more common than you think. Whether you’re a label lover or a plain Jane, brands including Armani, Versace, Marc Jacobs, Rayban and Oakley all have a fantastic selection to choose from. The only problem you’ll face is who gets to wear them first – you or your loved one? It’s only then when you’ll realise why a matching pair might be the only way to go.
