We might not be able to afford that Prada, Miu Miu or Dolce & Gabbana handbag (yet!), but with a bit of vigilant saving (aka restraining ourselves from going to the mall),  a pair of investment sunnies might soon be within our reach.

Round tortoiseshell frames

We love this pair by Prada. Round sunglasses are ideal for those with square faces according to Sunglasswarehouse.


Dainty wayfarers

This is a more modern twist on the classic Ray-Ban wayfarer and is ideal for those looking for something delicate and light.

Colourful, square frames

Best on those with oval faces, this pair by Prada is beyond gorgeous.

Classic round Jackie O-style frames

A classic girl? Go for this Dolce & Gabbana winner.

Quirky cateye

This Miu Miu cateye is light-weight and perfect for those looking for something a bit different.

Sunglasses available from Sunglass Hut and Luxxotica.

Qaanita wears the Lancome Juicy Shaker Lip Gloss.
