INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
AT THE BEACH WITH ASOS INSIDERS & RAY-BAN
By Steven Potter, 9 June 2019
When you think of the Platonic ideal of sunglasses, it’s hard not to picture the Wayfarer®. Called ‘the most recognisable style of sunglasses in history’, the shape has been around since the 50s and again cemented itself as a go-to style for musicians while also making its way into some of the most stylish flicks ever made. The silhouette goes with both beach-ready looks like the ones above and is understated enough to slide easily into your summer wedding look, too. The black frame is the classic OG, of course, but the model is also available in tortoiseshell finishes.
For a more lightweight frame, you can’t go wrong with Ray-Ban® and its Round, Oval or Square styles. These were particularly popular with musicians of the 60s and with throwback influence (think tie-dye), making up much of our summer wardrobes, these styles are the cherry on the top of a summery look steeped in nostalgic feels. Take a peep below for more iconic frames and pastel-coloured lenses.
