Leading ladies like Jennifer Lawrence and Scarlett Johansson have been spotted donning these stylish shades, adding an air of elegance and mystery to their ensembles.

Channel your inner John Lennon with retro round frame sunglasses. These timeless shades have an unmistakable vintage vibe that complements various face shapes. Whether you prefer a thin wire frame for a subtle look or a chunky acetate frame for a bold statement, round sunglasses are versatile and chic.

Mirrored Aviators

Aviators are a classic favourite, but this summer, the mirrored version is taking the spotlight. The reflective lenses not only add a futuristic edge to your look but also offer additional protection by reducing glare. Mirrored aviators have been endorsed by action stars like Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot, who appreciate their practicality and effortlessly cool appearance.

Transparent Frames

For a contemporary and chic look, transparent frame sunglasses are the way to go. These frames come in various shapes and colours, but their defining feature is the see-through effect that creates an illusion of floating lenses. This summer, celebrities like Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet have been seen embracing this trend, adding a touch of modernity to their summer attire.

This summer, sunglasses are not just a practical accessory to protect your eyes from the sun; they are a stylish statement that complements your overall look.

Summer Update

As the days get shorter and the air gets crisper, you’ve probably noticed that summer is making its exit from the UK. Yep, it’s time to bid farewell to those sunny days and warm vibes though here in UK we don’t get many sunny days anyway 🙂

Summer in the UK might be short and sweet, but it sure knows how to make an impression. It’s when we hit the parks for picnics, hit the beaches for some sun-soaking, and let the good times roll. Ice cream trucks become the soundtrack of our lives, and festivals like Glastonbury and the Edinburgh Fringe keep us entertained.

But as August wrapped up, September has already knocked on the door, and it’s pretty hard to ignore. The days start getting chillier, and the nights—well, they’re downright cold. Plus, you can’t ignore those leaves changing color. It’s like nature’s way of saying, “Autumn is on its way!”

While we might miss those sunny days, autumn in the UK has its own charm. Think cozy sweaters, hot tea, and those lovely walks through crunchy leaves in the countryside.

Here at Arlo Wolf we have started our working on our list of Autumn glasses  so stay tuned.
