I love the change in seasons and how it brings about new, emerging trends in the fashion world. It always makes me feel much more inspired and adventurous when it comes to putting outfits together and I find myself rooting through my wardrobe to find what I have tucked away from former Summers that I can pull out to fit with the upcoming styles and trends.
I feel like I’m such a culprit for getting on board with marmite trends every season and there’s no change there today, because I’m bringing you what is no doubt a major love it or hate it trend piece for Summer 2020.
I don’t know about you, but glasses chains in the traditional sense completely remind me of grandma’s and librarians. I seem to remember they would wear their reading glasses with a very delicate, thin gold chain around their necks, over the top of a pointelle cardigan and frilly collared, cotton shirt and I also recall seeing photographs of my dad wearing sunglasses chains in the eighties before I was born. So with those two images in mind, I can kinddddd of see why some people might think these lovely little accessories belong in the archives, however, I recently picked one up from Mango (albeit, very tentatively) after seeing a couple styled up over on Instagram and I have to admit, I absolutely love it.
Sunglasses chains add something so extra to an outfit and create more of a feature when you’re otherwise wearing quite a plain or basic outfit. Since picking up mine, I’ve seen so many others on the high street so I thought I would share some with you, along with a spot of Pinterest inspo to get your imagination flowing and maybe even tempt a few of you into picking up one of these pieces for yourselves.
I quite like the chunkier style chains because I feel like if you’re going to make a statement, you might as well go for it. However, if you’re a little sceptical but still want to buy into the trend, there are some thinner, more subtle chains available for you to give it a try.
Accessories are a great way to freshen up your look and you can pick up one of these for less than £10, so why not give it a go and update your eyewear this Summer?
