SUMMER STYLE REPORT: SUNGLASSES!

In the first of our sizzling summer style series, DREAMCATCHER reporter Manda gives us the lowdown on the coolest sunglasses… which ones would YOU choose?
Pic one…
Manda says:
Trying on sunglasses is a lot of fun - and also a great way to suss which styles suit you. I actually like all of the styles pictured, but I tried on lots to get this shortlist! I think this pair are my favourites… the quirky shape makes me look a bit eccentric, which I like!

Cathy says:
I like these too… the mock tortoiseshell rims are very vintage and I love the big, round shape… they really suit Manda and make her look fab! These would look awesome at any swish holiday resort!

Pic two…
Manda says:
I like these pinky sunglasses because they are basically multicoloured and shiny - and they also double up as mirrors! Really cool and unusual! All of the styles except for the black ones are from Accessorize - they have lots of styles to try, so there's something for everybody!

Cathy says:
These mirrored pink sunnies are lots of fun… though the pale frames are not going to be to everyone's taste! The boxy shape of this pair won't suit everyone, but Manda has great bone structure and carries it off well. Who says you can't see the world through rose-tinted glasses?

Pic three...
Manda says:
There's not a lot to say about these black sunglasses except to say that they're from River Island - and that they made me feel like a celebrity!

Cathy says:
These are classics… black, cool and timelessly fab. The curved, sweeping shape is very flattering, too! Black goes with everything and suggests an air of quiet, careless sophistication. They definitely do have a hint of the celeb about them, too… step out in style and see if the paparazzi are fooled! Perfect for that summer 'red carpet' moment… or for posing around town!

Pic four…
Manda says:
The photo doesn't show these too well, but they are similar to the pink pair, except with purple highlights - and they are possibly even prettier! I really like these… they feel so unusual!

Cathy says:
The blue/purple colouring suits Manda well… and the mirrored lenses are eye-catching and different. This shape won't flatter everyone, but it looks great on Manda!


Now for YOUR verdict… which pair of sunnies would YOU pick, and why? Which do you think suit Manda best? COMMENT BELOW to cast your vote!

  1. I would pick the first pair of sunglasses, they look really classic and edgy, and would suit anyone.

  2. I would pick Number 3, as they look quite sophisticated, but I think Number 1 suit Manda the best.

  3. Tortoiseshell, because I already have a pair like them, just not round!

  4. I love number one, but I have such a small face that I'd look slightly bug-eyed wearing them!

  9. AHHHHH. So much attention. So many compliments. This feels so weird... I was actually kind of putting off reading this for a few moments when I saw it was up, but hey it's not too bad in the end :) Though I have to say it's weird seeing 'Manda says' and then stuff I didn't actually say and doesn't entirely sound like me... I mean, it is pretty much what I said, just the way some of it's phrased doesn't actually sound like something I would say? A lot of what I do say is probably incoherent rambles though so a bit of rephrasing probably does make a lot of sense :)

    Also, I didn't *actually* go through that many to make a shortlist, I just randomly picked the ones that caught my eye and tried them on, but if you wanted more dramatic effect, I'm all for it!!

    I've actually never heard anyone compliment my bone structure before... but thank you!
    Ahh I'm getting a bit overwhelmed now, don't think I quite realised what I agreeing to back then haha!

    1. I know, apologies Manda… your comments were very brief and while you were away I couldn't get you to add to them, so had to str-eeetch them to fit the spaces by the pics. The comments need to be a short para rather than just a sentence, ideall, or else I'll need to add/edit. Sorry! xxx
