Shopping for sunglasses for someone like me can feel like shopping for jeans. They are a wardrobe necessity, and it can take me time to find the right pair. So when I have found a pair I like, I may end up wearing them repeatedly without change for a long period, I tend to get lazy about it. I find myself emotionally drawn to shoes and dresses which I update more often. Unless I am melting over something very specific, I opt for something classic and timeless.


This mindset was true up until I  came across Le Specs, an economically friendly sunglasses label filled with forward shapes and design details. The company, once popular in Australia during the 80’s, has resurfaced in 2006 after a 20-year hiatus.  Le Specs re-launched using sixty percent of their most popular and original moulds and have already collaborated with designers like Henry Holland and Craig and Karl. They have also reestablished their following with fans like Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Beyonce, Kate Moss, and the Delevigne sisters to name a few.The price point for each pair of shades varies between $55-$80 which is pretty impressive for quality sunglasses these days. What a fun way to explore different looks without hurting your wallet!
