Trend Report: Sport-Inspired Sunglasses

The Tour de France starts this weekend and it appears that the fashion world has been taking cues from one practical cycling accessory and adding it to a list of must-have trends. We are, of course, talking about those multi-coloured, thin wrap-around sunglasses that have taken Instagram and high fashion editorials by storm.

We’ve seen them on everyone from Bella Hadid to Kim Kardashian and even HRH Princess Anne – who’s worn them on multiple occasions including at the recent Royal Wedding. This latest trend seems to be a balance between on-trend and practical, which ultimately is what you want out of your accessory. They also come in smaller, narrower versions, which then ventures in ‘The Matrix’-style territory.

So, the question is: are you going to channel your inner Cadel Evans or Gigi Hadid? Usually we find these glasses in the Oakley or Bolle variety but we’ve also found some pretty fashionable ones for you to get your hands on as well. Take some cues from our celeb inspiration and snap up a pair of our favourites too.
