Summer 2011 is all about statement style and if you’re looking to add a sense of the wow factor into your wardrobe, then we urge you to take a look at the latest new styles in the Tom Ford sunglasses collection.
Ladies, if you know your stuff about fashion, then you’ll already be all over the cat-eye trend that’s been a hot look for stars including Kelly Osbourne, Angelina Jolie and Hilary Duff. If you want to take the ultra feminine cat-eye look a step further, then the dramatic Daphne sunglasses are the perfect choice – and not for the faint hearted! These amazing sunglasses feature a super bold shape and definitely bring the cat-eye and winged look right into 2011!
Preppy or geek-chic sunglasses are also still a hot look to be working and once again, Tom Ford has infused his own distinctive stamp on the trend with the launch of the Carter sunglasses. This unisex design is ultra sleek and simple with perfectly rounded lenses and the signature Tom Ford T-bar detailing. Fashion icon Fearne Cotton has been spotted wearing the Carter sunglasses and this is definitely a style that adds personality and individuality to your look.
The Tom Ford Campbell sunglasses are a new style for ladies that are reminiscent of the Wayfarer but with a more square-shaped and unique finish. The thick frame features square angles, which creates an androgynous inspired edge to your look and also includes the iconic Tom Ford T-bar detailing along the arm and over the temple.
These are just 3 of the new styles just launched within the Tom Ford sunglasses collection, so make sure you take a look at the whole range, which also includes a great variety of demure and understated designs. For this season however, Ford has definitely focused on expression and character; taking inspiration from retro styles and adding creative twists to bring them right into the modern day, and also making each style distinctive as Tom Ford.
A huge number of celebrities and trendsetters are fans of Tom Ford sunglasses including the Olsen twins, Elijah Wood, Jennifer Aniston and Anne Hathaway to name only a few. Tom Ford is definitely a must-have label for any fashionista and a pair of Tom Ford sunglasses are the perfect way to express a unique sense of style and personality this season!

If you’re looking for the perfect pair of sunglasses this season that tick all the style and trend boxes, then look no further than Italian fashion brand Prada.
Prada is one of the most sought-after designer labels of our time and a pair of Prada sunglasses are the perfect way to add a show-stopping edge to your look. Retro inspired sunglasses are a huge look this season and the PR19MS Prada sunglasses capture this trend perfectly whilst also maintaining the distinctive and high-fashion Prada edge.
A style for ladies, the PR19MS Prada sunglasses feature a thick frame which reaches a point at the upper outer corners and therefore creates a sultry cat-eye effect. The bold rectangular silhouette of the design remains the statement aesthetic feature with the iconic Prada lettering logo elegantly and demurely displayed beside the hinge.
The PR19MS sunglasses are available in an array of colours ranging from a dark Havana frame with graduated brown lenses, a classic black frame with graduated grey lenses, or for something vibrant and ultra feminine, a clear pink florescent frame with graduated brown lenses.
Style icon Nicole Ritchie is a fan of cat-eye sunglasses, teaming her pair with a dressed down daytime look and proving just how versatile the style is. Kelly Osbourne has also been spotted wearing a pair, again using them to add a striking finish to a simple white tee and black leggings.
So why not go a little more bold and statement for 2011! Ideal for complimenting a fierce dressed up look and a great way of jazzing up a casual outfit, the PR19MS Prada sunglasses definitely have that retro inspired wow factor and really add a sense of personality and elegance to your style.

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.
