Giorgio Armani Cat Walk Open Lenses glasses with wavy tubular detail, S$435

Prada Ornate sunglasses, S$550
Remember the cult favourite flame shoes that Prada released first in S/S’12 and then F/W’18? This pair of sunnies is another way to join in the fun if you couldn’t get your hands on the limited footwear release. Inspired by 1950s cars with cartoonish flames, all eyes will be on you when you don this fiery piece. Pair it with a denim jumpsuit and a pair of dad sneakers for a cool street style.
Dior DiorSoLight1 sunglasses, S$640
Despite its large mask-like silhouette and the oversized square frames, this Dior pair is actually pretty lightweight. Best of all, because of its size, it’s a perfect accessory for no-make-up days. Also available in pink and ivory, pair it with a flaming red pantsuit and studded heels to show who’s boss.
Gentle Monster Peggy 01 sunglasses, S$467
South Korean label Gentle Monster is known for being a trendsetter, rolling out pieces that are quirky and unconventional, yet aesthetically pleasing. And this pair is no exception. The cat-eye silhouette further emphasises the retro vibes of this sky blue creation and features a unique meal nose strap design. Throw on a ’60s hippy tie dye shirt (which is back in trend, btw) and slip into some bell-bottoms to really play up the vintage effect.

Jimmy Choo Bee/s 55 sunglasses, €725 (S$1,101.53)
We all love a pair of cat-eye sunnies, but cat-eye sunnies with bling? Heck yeah! Malaysian shoemaker Jimmy Choo’s iteration comes with a luxe touch, with Swarovski crystal embellishments all over its metal frame. Most of all, we love the removable Choo metal charm, which looks like you have a dangling earring on. How unique. Wear a black velvet dress and silver strappy heels and let this piece sit on the top of your head as a finishing touch.
