Summer is the season to go out and play. Personalities are emphasised through summer accessories; from quirky bikinis to stylish sunglasses, everyone has their go-to summer look.

This season, our trends speak to a variety of personas, empowering you to find your shades and face the sun," says Earl Kopeledi, Sunglass Hut Marketing Manager.

Stylish Squares

Protect your skin from the sun with square silhouettes; perfect for the confident and mindful type. Square lenses for summer provide full protection from wrinkle-causing UV rays. They’re perfect for people with round faces, as they balance out proportions and add a dose of classical cool to any summer look.   Gemaen Taylor and Rowlene Bosman  are some of the few celebs who love squares. 


Sunny Tints

Tinted sunglasses are not a new trend and are the perfect shades to transition from the beach to the bar. Engage with your inner fashionista and revisit this style favourite.  Celebs seen rocking this tinted eyewear are "It Girls" Bella Hadid and Kylie Jenner.
