Getting ready for summer is no mean feat – we all know the old slip, slop, slap routine, but it’s not just about slapping on a hat, no Aussie is truly ready for summer until they have found the right pair of sunnies. Once those bright rays hit, you can’t go anywhere without a pair of sunglasses. And while the protection of your eyes is our biggest concern, with a pair of Le Specs sunglasses, you don’t need to compromise on style.
A bit about the brand
Le Specs has been doing the rounds since 1979, and with each year, they have given us bold, and iconic sunglasses, at affordable prices. Creating trends with every new release, their sunglasses have been worn by huge celebrities like Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.
Being fashion forward and trend savvy isn’t their only focus – all sunglasses are tested comprehensively to ensure they meet international protective standards, and each pair is fitted with lenses that filter out 100% of UV rays and blue lights. Every pair is hand polished to ensure they exceed all quality standards.
While 2020 has been a strange year for us all, it hasn’t stopped Le Specs from staying on brand and delivering us more youth driven and fashion forward iconic sunglasses. Let’s have a look at some trends for 2020.
Take on the classics
Le Specs has been one of the pioneers of creating affordable sunglasses that hark back to the timeless shapes. Reinventing the classic shapes, Le Specs does this without the hefty price tags. One of our favourites that Le Specs have reinterpreted is the Clubmaster. With their own twist to the iconic shape, Le Specs has built a huge range of options that all nod to this timeless classic.
Styles like the No Smirking, Teen Spirit, Fire Starter and Bandwagon take on the shape of the clubmaster, however with their own spin on the classic style, each of these sunglasses styles differ slightly to make them suitable for different face shapes. Check out some of these timeless styles below:
All about the lenses
2020 is about adding some life and colour to our lives any way we can. And what better way to do that than with the lenses of our sunnies? Le Specs continues to grow the stable of lens colour options, with most styles now being available in a huge range of colours.
With the retro appeal of the 60s and 70s flower power era, coloured lenses can now add that pop of colour to your outfit without compromising the protection of your eyes. With polarised, mirrored, gradient and basically any colour of the rainbow lenses available, let’s check out some of our faves below:
Who runs the world?
While a pair of sunglasses can be worn by anyone, there are some styles that are so strikingly feminine that any woman who wears them exudes power and commands respect. The Cat-Eye shape frame is so innately feminine, that anyone who adds these to an outfit is really looking to up the ante. While many brands have tried this shape, Le Specs interprets the cat-eye shape into several different styles, such as Liar Liar, Air Heart, Beautiful Stranger & Eureka, each one with their own exaggerated feature. Some of our faves include:
Oversized sunnies are a trend that will never ever get old. And luckily for us, it suits every face shape, and even better has the added benefit of protecting more of the delicate skin around our eyes. Le Specs meets the demand of this mystery inducing trend with oversized styles in many different shapes. Whether you’re after rectangular, round or square styles, Le Specs has got something for you. We think some of the best ones are:
Back to the Future:
A little more risky, but definitely a statement maker are shades that reach into the future with geometric shapes that we didn’t think were possible in sunglasses form. Le Specs grabs this trend with two hands and gives us some of the coolest and most futuristic shapes we’ve seen out there. But just because these styles may be a little out there, like all of their other shades, these ones come in heaps of different colour options and more importantly, the same high level of protection as all of their sunglasses. Slide into the future with some of these styles below:
No need to compromise on quality:
While Le Specs offers a huge range of styles that will keep you on trend at all times, when you buy a pair of Le Specs, you are buying true quality – some the design features include:
- Polycarbonate Frames – making your sunglasses durable and lightweight
- Le Tough Frames – frames that are designed to last with flexibility and extreme comfort
- Polycarbonate Lenses – lightweight to add to the comfortability of your sunglasses, these ones are scratch resistant and shatterproof
- Spring Hinges – allow a huge range of movement, making sunglasses flexible and able to fit any face shape and size
- Adjustable Nose Pads – each pair of metal framed sunglasses is fitted with adjustable nose pads that allow a tailored fit
- Signature branding – the Le Specs branding is subtle yet instantly recognisable which lets the individual pair of sunglasses do the talking
