The sun is shining, the weather is sweet …
Summer is here! Warm temperatures, sunbeams, cool drinks, friends, family, acquaintances and colleagues meet, and the smell of barbeques is in the air – everything you need for a perfect outdoor party!
Pool party, garden party, cocktail party in the open air, a picnic or perhaps you prefer a beach club? There are a variety of leisure options in summer that always guarantee a good mood.
If you want to organize a summer party, good planning is the key! In addition to summer food such as salads, brochettes, dips, fruits and BBQ, cool drinks are particularly important. Although icy drinks should be avoided on very warm days, as they send false signals to the body that makes it produce extra heat and make you start sweating even more, an ice-cold lemonade or a cold beer simply tastes better when the temperatures are high. Decorative items, such as small lanterns, fairy lights, comfortable seating and garden torches can easily create a pleasant atmosphere and underpinned with good music, nothing can stand in the way of a perfect summer fete.
But there is also another important question: what to wear at a summer party?
If the party has a specific motto, then the dress code is usually pre-determined. For summer parties without a given motto, light and airy clothes, open shoes and sun hats are the perfect choice. Bathing suits shouldn’t be forgotten when the party is taking place on a lake, on the beach or by the pool. But no matter what the location, an important accessory should not be missing: the perfect sunglasses that match your look!
Wearing sporty square sunglasses in a classical all-black look and slim fit, such as the Nike Flex Finesse eyewear, you make a casual appearance at every summer event. Kaia Gerber, daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford, shows how cool a plane, black pair of sunglasses can look. Combined with a bandana wrapped aROUND the head, denim shorts, shirt and sneakers, this accessory is the perfect companion. Although it is an inconspicuousness model, it is a real eye-catcher, as it is completely in black.
Sunglasses should definitely not be missing as a fashion accessory, especially at a beach party! Everything is permitted: colourful and eye-catching, discreet and classic, eccentric or feminine. Model Gigi Hadid has released her own collection of sunglasses in cooperation with the label Vogue Eyewear. Narrow models in Boho-Glam-Style or retro design can be found in her collection. Particularly popular are cat-eye glasses with a plastic frame, for example, in the colour Havana and with blue lenses. With this model you feel like you are wearing the beach and the sea directly on your nose.
Casual, Summery with Tinted Lenses
Sunglasses lenses in different colours are not only popular with female eyewear lovers. Colored sunglasses lenses also give a man’s look a certain refinement and summery flair. ROUND glasses and metal frames are the favourite designs. Vincent von Thien, male model and social media influencer likes to wear ROUND sunglasses with orange to red tinted lenses. A similar example is the Prada Sport model with golden metal frame and dark pink tinted glasses. Tinted glasses in bright colours such as yellow, orange, pink, red and light blue, can also be worn very well at dusk, without the view being darkened.
The 80s are Back
80’s models are celebrating a comeback. Especially popular at summer parties is retro jewelry with a hippie touch. Fluttering skirts, airy tops and colourful jewelry can also be combined with retro models like high waist shorts and crop tops, as blogger and influencer Negin Mirsalehi shows on her Instagram channel. Typical for vintage sunglasses are wider full rim frames, ROUND shapes and rich colours. The cat-eye by Guess in the colour red is an accessory that lends your face the perfect 80’s look.
Whether a beach party, cocktail party or barbeque, various eyewear designs can always be worn at every summer festivity. It just depends on how you use the sunglasses to complete your look.
