Fashionistas sit up and take note! Those in the know have made their style predictions for the year ahead and it’s looking like another vintage inspired annum…
The following trends are going to be hot in 2011 and as always Shade Station have got the perfect pair of sunglasses to compliment all of fashion’s fancies.
With the return of Biba and Halston in 2010, it was clear the era that gave us Studio 54, platform shoes and Saturday Night Fever was going to have a big impact on 2011. Already the high street is awash with flowing skirts, pleated culottes, retro colours, flares, headscarves and oversized sunglasses. In it’s new year edition Heat magazine encouraged readers to stock up on super-sized shades and Vogue.co.uk predict sunglasses to take on “exaggerated shapes…. the new shades have a quirky retro feel”. To channel Farrah Fawcett in her Seventies heyday, super-cool brand D Squared sunglasses would achieve the desired effect. And lovely Pucci sunglasses are also ‘very of the era’.
Ladylike Sixties and Pretty Fifties
With the midi skirt the length du jour, the full circle skirt remaining popular and pointed kitten heels replacing towering heels, 2011 looks set to be a refined year. In terms of accessorising your prim but pretty outfit, Fashionising.com suggest cat’s eyes sunglasses are the shape to be focusing on. Check out our vintage sunglasses section or our Marc Jacobs sunglasses and Tom Ford Sunglasses for feline shapes. For classic Fifties and sixties oversized sunnies hit our Chanel, Prada, Roberto Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana and BVLGARI sunglasses pages!
Another trend that is hanging on for dear life… Seemingly more popular than ever this year, shops are bursting with leopard prints, zebra, tiger and ever giraffe! If you’re wearing animal print on your person we would kindly suggest not wearing matching sunglasses and instead choose a pair of big sedate black or brown shades. However if you need to jazz up your outfit with a little print there’s plenty of tortoiseshell to go around! Almost all of the designer labels at Shade Station have tortoiseshell sunglasses on offer, however we particularly like Ray Ban’s tortoiseshell Way Farer sunglasses and Oliver Peoples shades too.
White and Orange
Maybe it’s because of the whole Seventies vibe going on, that both white and orange feature so strongly this year… whatever the reason it’s nice to see some bold colour on the catwalk. Ray Ban sunglasses are always on trend with their bright colours and Marc Jacobs sunglasses, Carrera sunglasses and Von Zipper sunglasses have some great styles with white frames too.
These are our pick of the big trends for 2011 so whatever look you fancy trying, remember, we’ve always got the best selection of sunglasses to compliment your style!
