Sunglasses to make you feel like a Movie Star

by Mary Lowe May 29, 2021

We've been searching high and low for sunglasses with movie star appeal. Finally we've found some that look fabulous, are high quality and don't break the bank. This means you can choose multiple pairs to match different outfits and access your inner movie star. We have 5 styles to choose from: Hayworth, Monroe, Bardot, Crawford and Bacall.


Cat eye sunglasses Leopard print

The Hayworth's are a petite cat eye frame that ooze sophistication and glamour. Available in leopard print (pictured above), black or pink.

As the cat eye shape is so reminiscent of movie star style we decided to to order the Monroe's too. 


Cat Eye Sunglasses Black

Monroe offers a slightly bigger cat eye than the Hayworth. The thicker frames adding a little extra drama. They're available in a classic black. Or if you fancy something a little different a latte or tortoiseshell.

That's the cat eye shape covered. Next we decided on some round frames. Bardot

Round Sunglasses Apricot Coloured Frame

Bardot offer more face coverage with their large round frames. Imagine how these will look with a scarf wrapped over your head!


Square Frame Brown Sunglasses

We love these sunglasses, they have a rounded square frame and the tones of browns offer a truly unique look.

Last but by no means least...


Burgundy Frame Square Shaped Sunglasses

The Bacall sunglasses are a beautiful shade of burgundy with ombre style lenses (opaque not mirrored). They have a large square frame and we love the added pop of gold.  

My personal favourites are the Bardot style as I feel they fit my face properly and have just the right amount of drama. The only problem was I couldn't decide which colour frames to get....so I went with both the oat and black. Black is a staple, will go with all my outfits and are a little more understated, where as the oat offer more of a statement look.
