History doesn’t always repeat itself, but some trends are just too good not to bring back! The 1960s was certainly a distinguished decade of fads, and thankfully, we’ve come a long way. You may laugh at pictures of your mom in go-go boots or your dad rocking a bowl cut, but this decade gave birth to some looks that still have a place in our hearts. Circle lense sunglasses give a nod to ’60s style while still looking incredibly fashion-forward.
This Fashionista’s look has a retro edge that would have fit right in at a Beatles concert back in the day. Her leather brogues, polka-dot blouse, brooch and bold lip color gave her an irrefutably cool presence, but nothing was as eye-catching as her eyewear. These gold rim Ray-Bans are definitely a retro-lover’s must-have of the season.
If you aren’t completely convinced that this trend is here to stay, you may be hesitant to splurge on a pair of designer shades. These tortoise shell sunglasses from TOBI are totally Twiggie-esque and such a steal. Pair it with this ASOS smock dress and some leather booties and you’ll look absolutely iconic.
During the months of heat waves and sunny days, you can’t afford to leave the house without sunglasses. Finding the perfect pair can be a daunting task, but don’t sweat it! Round-shaped shades are suitable for any decade.
Spotted: The Dries Van Noten spring 2013 ready-to-wear show featured models in vintage-inspired shades that complemented the retro looks on the runway.
