Sunglasses are undoubtedly a key asset when one needs to up the ante of an outfit without doing too much.  And our favourite celebrities and influencers rarely give up opportunities to do just that. Adding an extra dose of fabulous with statement sunglasses is par for the course and this year we’ve been seeing a particular pair we are enamoured of.

These may look familiar not just because of the ubiquitous bedazzled ‘DG’; Rihanna wore the very same sunnies last season to tease the debut of her much beloved ‘Stunna’ liquid lip paint.


Toke Makinwa: On a casual lunch date, Toke paired her Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2018 sunglasses with a loose pink top, hot pink mules and a Givenchy Antigona in metallic textured-leather for a cute yet casual look.


Idia Aisien: Take your next airport style cue from Idia, opting to glam up the athleisure vibe of her grey Adidas tracksuit, she kept the focus on the OTT sunglasses with her hair pulled back, the Balenciaga Speed trainers, a tan Celine Phantom and burgundy Louis Vuitton Pégase Légère 55 trolley in Fuschia epi leather. We love this casually sophisticated street-style look.

Sai Sankoh: The reigning influencer queen of old school glam, Sai has worn hers not once but twice. First, in a daring black Giorgio Armani dress with aplunging neckline, John Anthony bolero-style jacket, Rene Caovilla shoes and a Valentino Rockstud clutch for lunch, then to dinner clad in a decadent purple Cushnie et Ochs dress emboldened with  a matching turban, Rene Caovilla shoes, a luxurious fur and the statement glasses to complete her look.
