Pairing sunglasses with other accessories

  • Print

When done right, eyewear can add a hint of suavity to any outfit but the questions are how to pair your sunglasses with other accessories for a chic look. Ishaan Kataria, Director, Gem Opticians, and Salesh Grover, Business Head, OSL Luxury Collections Pvt Ltd - Corneliani, share some smart tips.


*Patterned metal-framed sunglasses and cufflinks: Lightweight metal framed sunglasses with patterned detailing are popular these days. Cufflinks are a great way to add a personal touch to an outfit as it is a piece of jewelery along with functional benefits. It helps in displaying one's unique fashion sense and can simply add that tinge to a basic shirt. As long as it's a long-sleeved shirt with requisite holes in the cuffs, one can work cufflinks with all kinds of outfits.

*Aviators and leather belt: Aviators is a summer staple but they can look great in winters too, especially when supplemented with gloomy outfits for a laid-back look. These can also be paired with a formal and semi-formal outfit for a more sophisticated look. Inclusion of a good textured leather belt can take one's look to the next level. A belt is, of course, important in keeping one's pants in place; however, they need not be just functional. It's a good idea to splurge in tan browns, black and navy blue color. The best tip would be to match the color of the belt with the shoes.

*Dark tinted lens sunglasses and tie: They can make you look debonair when complemented with a formal outfit. The dark tinted sunglasses reduce the glare of reflective surfaces which makes them suitable for driving and, therefore, upping their utilitarian quotient too. A tie is an easy way to sharpen up the everyday work wear. It's a eulogy for being a great add-on to accentuate one's look. Whether suiting up for the office or laying out a look for the evening, a tie allows one to pull together the incongruous elements of the wardrobe with a touch of texture or complementary color.

*Simple square-shaped hipster glasses and wallets: Hipster sunglasses are unconventional and undoubtedly head-turners. These can subtly highlight the geek chic style of a person. This style can also be paired with a bearded face to bring out the adventurous appeal. Instead of going for a mundane one that does its job well, invest in a good wallet that not just houses cards, money and other important things but is also classy and elegant.
