Now that the sunshine is shining and spring summer fashions can start to be safely worn - without the threat of frostbite - it's time to whip out your biggest and best oversized sunnies. Here's why you should wear them, and how to wear them, for a fabulous, everyday look...
Not only are sunnies a must for protecting your precious peepers but that can also hide a heap of beauty sins. Late nights in front of the TV, feeling a little 'under the weather' the day after a night out with the girls, not to mention one of the only bad things about spring - hayfever! - can all leave you with tired, dry, red and watery eyes. Sometimes makeup just can't fix the issue, but a huge pair of fantastic sunnies can. This is why sunnies on a sunday are like peas in a pod. They just fit! Read on for which beauty looks to rock with yours....
A bold pout
With little of your face on show under a pair of ginormas shades, make sure your lips do all the beauty talking! A bold pout will balance the look perfectly, especially if you have a heart shaped face. Wearing a loud lipstick will draw the eye to your mouth, so that your sunnines don't steal all the limelight - you want people to remember that someone is living behind those shades! Choose any colour that you like - but remember, brights look best when the weather is fine. Our pick? A bright pink. It is breast cancer awareness month after all! Try Savior Faire's Showgirl Mini Lipstick. So cute and compact, you can take it everywhere for touch ups on the go.
An up 'do
When wearing a HUGE pair of sunnies, keeping your hair off your face looks just plain lovely. Plus, if you are wearing said sunnies due to a hangover headache, an up do of the top knot variety is often the easiest and most hassle free hair style to opt for. Just make sure you use comfy hair ties, like these ones from Twistband, so that your head doesn't hurt (even more) Nothing worse than a bun-ache once you've created the perfect up 'do - you'll just have to take it out mid way through the day.

A spritz of spring fragrance
Can you image Liz Taylor or Marylin Monroe rocking their shades without a glam fragrance trail following behind them? How about Audrey Hepburn or Sophia Loren? The answer - heck no! No doubt these ladies knew the power of a stunning pair of shades and a sensual yet elegant perfume. Make sure you live up to the mysteriously glam rep your shades deserve with a sublte shot of a sexy scent. Our latest fragrance fave? DKNY's Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Eau So Intense. With accentuated notes of delicate florals, absolute citrus, and a crisp apple blossom accord, it makes for an amazingly feminine and fresh scent, ideal for spring/summer.
So, are you inspired to pull out your oversized shades yet? I hope so. After all, four iconic woman can't be wrong! What style of sunnies do you love best? My latest love are my Karen Walker Super Strength shades. Perfect for every occasion (espeically pool-side!) - Lauren
