Just like the hat and the scarf, sunglasses helped create Audrey Hepburn’s well defined style. In 1961’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s Audrey catapulted sunglasses from daytime wear into a new realm of fashion necessity. Paired with her legendary little black dress and an oversized hat, Holly Golightly gave character to sunglasses and made them a must have accessory. Although, many claim those famous sunglasses to be Wayfarers they were in fact the design of Italian eyewear company Persol. However, Ray-Bans aren’t a bad substitute for the popular style. In recent years Ray-Bans have made a comeback with today’s youth giving the classic style a remodel for the 21st century. Another popular look was the rounded frame sunglasses seen in the movie How to Steal a Million. The spectacular eye catching white ensemble involving a white suit, hat and sunglasses took our 1950s darling into a new era of 1960s mod. The sunglasses were by designer Oliver Goldsmith who was also responsible for Audrey’s sunglasses in Charade, Two for the Road and Roman Holiday. You can see a similarly inspired look from fashion juggernaut Chanel. They’re fresh take on the round frames are a popular design among celebrities such as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Nicole Richie. Sunglasses are the perfect finishing piece, adding an air of mystery and seduction; there is a style for every occasion.
