5 Pairs of Sunglasses that Work with your Suit
As an entrepreneur and company director, I’m regularly attending business meetings wearing a sharp suit, complementary tie and on-point, freshly polished shoes. But whenever I need to step outside in the sun, I worry that adding my trusted Oakley sunglasses to the ensemble doesn’t guide work, and ruins the whole look.
So how can you pair a suit and sunglasses and keep the smart and focused style you’re going for? Here are 5 pairs that will work with any kind of suit:
- Ray Ban Wayfarers
These classically cool frames will work with just about any outfit, but in black or grey the iconic, angular style will help keep the glare from your eyes without taking anything away from your professional and stylish look.
- Saint Laurent D Frame Acetate
If you like the Wayfarer styling but want something a little more stylish and original, opt for Saint Laurent’s beautiful D Frame acetate frames in black. You get the same effortlessly cool style, but a few extra points from the hipsters.
- Givenchy Square Frames
If neither of the above quite work for you, and you want something a little more high-end, then you can go wrong with Givenchy. These frames keep the smart, stylish look with the angular square frames and will work beautifully with any suit, whether it’s Tom Ford or Tesco.
- Tom Ford Marko
If you’re just not keen on the Wayfarer look, then aviator-style frames will work just as well. These Tom Ford aviators are metal framed and feature dark lenses, which is generally a much better choice to accompany a suit than mirrored lenses.
- Ray Ban Clubmasters
If you prefer the slightly retro smart look – think Mad Men here – then you can’t go wrong with a pair of Clubmasters. Ray Ban make the quintessential frames in this style, but you can find beautifully made pairs from Gucci, Tom Ford and plenty of others.
