How do we get from cringe to chic in less than 1 second?
Just put on a pair of these Raybans and you are good to go.
These babies are the Rayban Round Metal Sunglasses. They come in a total of 6 colours that vary in terms of frames and lens. The ones here are the gold frames with the classic green lens and they are perfection. I have been obsessing over these style of sunglasses ever since I saw them on the beautiful Carmen Hamilton, also known as @chroniclesofher_ in the Instagram world. If you aren’t following her, you should. She’s a gorgeous Australian blogger who blogs for her own site as well as Vogue Australia. This naturally means that her style is just impeccable.
After seeing them on her, I was obsessed with the look and hunted these pair down. Made in Italy, these Raybans feel a lot more delicate than the usual Wayfarers and definitely need a lot more care and attention. Hence, I can’t simply chuck these in the bag without its case, for fear of ruining the thin gold frames. They also do not block off the sun completely as sunlight does pass through the tops and sides of the lens. However, it does provide UV protection.
And goddamn, do they look chic.
Throw this on any outfit, even without any makeup on and you look like a million dollars. Perfect for any occasion and light as a feather, I barely notice having it on my face. This was a welcomed change from the heavier sunglasses I owned that tend to sit on my nose a little heavier, even touching my cheeks.
If you like simplicity and timeless designs, then look no further.
