A good pair of sunglasses is priceless. I honestly don’t know what I would do without sunglasses. First of all I actually need them. My eyes are really sensitive to the sun and start to water when it’s too bright. Second of all I love them for the style they bring to a whole outfit. And let’s not forget that they cover up dark circles and tired eyes better than any concealer out there right? I’ve had the same pair of classic Ray-Ban wayfarers for years but this doesn’t mean that I don’t like to change it up every now and then. Sunglasses are like shoes – some go with certain outfits better than others so it’s good to have a few pairs in your wardrobe to pull out depending on the occasion. Take these Chanel 5320 sunglasses for example – my latest love. First of all anything from Chanel is going to stand the test of time – not only in quality but also in style. So if you do buy something from Chanel and want to invest the money into it, it’s nice to know that it’s not going to be something that you will throw out next year but instead something that you will keep and treasure for the future.
Chanel Sunglasses: A Lookbook
In the 5320 sunnies it’s all about the red and the lines of the frame define the silhouette of the butterfly. Red, the colour of passion and courage, is symbolic to Chanel. It lined the 2.55 handbag and was worn on Gabrielle Chanel’s lips.
I actually have been wanting Chanel sunglasses for awhile. I have a Chanel WOC and I’ve written about Chanel make-up HERE previously but I’ve never owned any other accessories so sunglasses were next on the list. But of course anything by Chanel is also going to be very expensive. These 5320 shades have a touch of red around the frame so give them a bit of a cool, chic look. And we all know that the colour of red is very important to the Chanel brand – it signifies power and passion – two things key to the Chanel woman. These sunglasses are super chic and look amazing paired with a little black dress or a white button down shirt, jeans and heels and a power red lip. Think sexy but chic and you will get my drift. Sunglasses have the ability to change a look and to be honest I love wearing them at all times.

A little tip on how to save on sunglasses? I’ve actually found a way around this as I’ve discovered Sunglasses Shop where you can buy loads of designer sunglasses at really amazing prices. Honestly if you are looking for designer sunnies at a less expensive price then you have to check out their site HERE. They also have brands like Prada, Miu Miu and Ray Ban. The Chanel 5320 sunglasses in this feature were discounted 50% off the original price from Sunglasses Shop (they were originally £240 but lowered to £120) making them extremely affordable. And it’s not often you find anything from Chanel on sale. Ever.
