I hope you all had a nice and sunny bank holiday weekend and were rocking your sunglasses! I sure did! This summer pastel colours are huge. If you want to wear head to toe pastel then may I introduce you to Miu Miu eyewear. For summer Miu Miu has bought out a range pastel coloured crystal frames and they are pretty cute. Pastel colours may seem hard to wear but as long as you pick the correct colour for your skin tone it will work. Pastel colours always look more striking when you have got a tan going on which is why it makes them perfect for the summer.
These Miu Miu glasses are not just in sunglasses styles (which is what most of brands seem to do), they are also available in optical glasses so us optical wearers are in luck and are able to keep up with this fashion trend in our eyewear. If you are one of those people who tend to stick to muted colours all year round then these Miu Miu beauties guarantee to add just a hint of colour to your outfit.
However, I do know that not everyone is keen on crystal clear & pastel frames but if you are new to this trend and want to try it out then I would recommend you to wear a colour you are familiar with such as the crystal black (top left corner) or the purple (bottom right). They are the safer options and will work for most skin tones. Of course if you want to go for it then try out the other colours. However if you REALLY want to go for it then get the sunglasses style, wear them as sunglasses first and see how you get on with them and if you like them put some transition lenses in then you get the best of both worlds!
The Miu Miu sunglasses are more wacky compared to the optical range but I guess with most brands that is to be expected because for some reason, in general, we are more willing to go a bit more adventurous with sunglasses shapes and colours compared to normal glasses. I love the glasses and they are good quality frames although the sunglasses use better hinges compared to the optical range. I don’t know why but I am seeing more brands doing that. Surely optical glasses need better hinges? Anyway, if you are out and about and want to treat yourself then head down to sunglasses hut and I am still waiting on more information as to where you can buy the optical range. I will let you know!
