Trend Alert: Statement Sunnies

By Kaylee Spahr

Statement sunglasses are in and they’re not going anywhere. From street style in New York City to here on the streets of Oxford, everyone is rocking bold sunnies. From bright colored mirrored aviators to oversized cat eyes you’re bound to find a pair you’ll love. So many brands have bought into this up and coming trend by creating unique shades that express a variety of styles. From Dior to RayBans to the cheap-o glasses sold on Amazon you’ll have plenty of options to complete your look.

My personal go to brand for statement sunnies is an Australian company called Quay. This brand is conveniently sold at Nordstrom as well as on their website, quayaustralia.com. Quay is the definition of unique—with varying styles and colors these sunglasses can amp UP any outfit. Pictured below to the right are my favorite pair of statement Quay sunnies. These shades will instantly make anyone look fashionable and put together without even trying.

If patterns make you uneasy, Quay also has a great selection of a more basic and neutral styles as well. These type of shades are also a great basic as you can count on them looking great with any outfit. As pictured below, these rose gold shades are the perfect mix of basic and bold all in one.
