It’s that time of year when everyone needs a bit of a style overhaul. We’ve got the pick of the Autumn/Winter 2010 collections arriving in high street and designer stores, so there is no excuse to miss a trick when it comes to the latest trends. Not one to be left in the dark, WantSunglasses has had its very own A/W makeover and we’re sure you’re going to love it.
Thanks to a complete redesign, the website looks hot to trot!
With all the best of the new designer collections up and online from the likes of Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, Gucci, D&G and Yves Saint Laurent, we are here to help you complete the perfect winter look. Accessorise your oh so trendy camel coat with the latest Balenciaga beauties, or team your beloved shearling aviator jacket with the infamous Ray-Ban Aviator. Let WantSunglasses be the ones to provide your finishing touches this season.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that now the summer has passed there is no call for sunglasses. Low sitting sun and road glare are still good enough excuses to get the Pradas out and, let’s face it, us girls (and I’m sure you boys are the same) really don’t need much excuse to ramp up the glamour factor in any situation.
Also, launching in the next couple of weeks at WantSunglasses is our range of Oakley ski goggles. Taking a fashionable jaunt to the piste to try out your D&G winter warmers? Why not make Oakley your choice de jour when it comes to your ski goggles? The Oakley Stockholm is the perfect choice for any female taking to the slopes for ski season. With Oakley, you can trust that they know exactly what they’re doing when it comes to keeping you safe and comfortable, so all you have to worry about is the fabulous outfit you’ll be wearing underneath your ski gear.
Also, for those moments spent dining and relaxing at the peak of the piste, you’ll need some super stylish sunglasses to keep up with the Jones’s and keep that nasty snow glare out of your eyes. All of our sunglasses are 100% UV protective and we have a great range of polarized sunglasses which are superior at blocking glare.
Take your stylish steps with WantSunglasses this Autumn/Winter season.

News just in! Fearne Cotton has been spotted in the sunnies that you’re all going to be wanting to get your hands on this Autumn/Winter season. Hot on the heels of the announcement that she will be the host of the first ever Teen Awards, which will take place on the 14th November, Fearne Cotton has been showing us all why she is a style starlet that is so in demand.
After hosting her regular Radio 1 show Fearne was snapped on her way to yet another photoshoot and covered up with a stunning velvet coat with fur trim, topping her look off with a super trendy leopard print hat and ‘shape of the moment’ sunglasses. All the biggest and best designers are getting in on the act when it comes to the new look round sunglasses and we have got some beauties on our site from the likes of Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren and Giorgio Armani.
Also, if you’re looking for a more affordable option then why not head over to WantGlasses, our sister site, where you can find great frames that will really give you this look for a fraction of the price. Either wear them as glasses, or simply tick the box for tinted lenses and hey presto you have a hot to trot pair of round, retro sunnies.
Here’s an extra tasty bit of gossip for you in addition to this sunglasses style update…
Mischa Barton, who was recently one of the subjects of Fearne’s ITV2 show, ‘Fearne And…’ has expressed her anger at the way she was portrayed on the show. The former O.C. actress told OK!:
‘I think Fearne Cotton’s show is a joke and she’s a joke. I can’t hear Fearne’s name without seeing red. ‘I wish I hadn’t done it and that’s bad because there are enough misconceptions about me in the press. She’s got nothing to lose if she makes a more salacious story, she’s only got everything to gain.’

Super cool music mogul Kanye West has been flexing his fashion muscles bit by bit over the last couple of years and has become a regular fixture at the seasonal fashion weeks. Kanye knows how to exercise his fashion credentials to perfection in these bad boy sunglasses from Gucci. You’ve got to look stylish when you’re an all-rounder like Kanye. Not content with dominating the music world and forays into designing for the likes of Louis Vuitton, Kanye has directed and starred in a short film to accompany his new album. This man doesn’t stop
Still, at least he’s got the Gucci sunglasses of the moment to keep him on the ball when it comes to looking good. The Gucci GG 1627 sunglasses are sexy frames for any man this season. The acetate frame with the classic Gucci racing stripes add a great twist to the traditional aviator. It is hard not to be charmed by Kanye West’s mix of dapper style and urban street cred. It’s a combination that not many people can pull off with such aplomb so hats off to him.

Coming across this little ditty has brightened up our grey, rainy Friday so we thought we’d share it with you! You may have already seen this, but if not…enjoy.
None other than Her Majesty The Queen has recently caught the bug for 3D viewing. However, don’t expect her to be sporting the large, plastic frames we make to with at the local cinema. No, these are suped up in a manner befitting a royal. Rumour has it that the Queen called in her personal assistant to adorn the arms of her 3D sunglasses with the letter Q in Sworovski crystals. The definition of bling or what!

Nicole Richie is stepping back into the limelight with her Winter Kate and House of Harlow fashions lines going strong and a new book due to launch, so she is making sure that she looks the part. Nicole has resurrected these trusty favourites from Chanel. She was seen sporting these a couple of years ago, along with the likes of Mary Kate Olsen, however they now couldn’t be more on trend, so we can completely understand her renewed love for them. For those of use who haven’t got the budget for Chanel, thanks to the trend for round sunglasses at the moment, there are plenty of more affordable options on the market.
Just within the Giorgio Armani collection alone there is a great choice, of rounded retro influenced beauties. Round sunglasses were also a talking point at Armani’s latest collection shown in Milan this week.
Round sunglasses have been a slowly emerging trend, but now is really the time to grab the bull by the horns and go for broke with this look. Whether you go for the full volume retro glamour of Nicole Richie’s sunglasses or the more John Lennon classic style on the Giorgio Armani catwalk, dip your toe in the trend this season.

With Paris Fashion Week getting underway and London and Milan just passed, we thought we’d give you a taster of some of Milan’s street style that you can easily emulate. This season’s Fashion Weeks have seen all the editors and fashionistas out in force and, of course they are sporting the latest in sunglasses trends. These ladies definitely know what’s hot! Many of the styles we’ve been seeing over the past month are based on trends that have been bubbling away quietly in the fashion world but are now really breaking onto the high street. Think Harry Potter style round frames and fantastically feminine cat’s eye sunglasses. A bit more daring than your Ray-Ban Wayfarer (which is still going strong), so if you’re looking to make the ultimate style statement with your sunglasses then follow the lead of the Milan Fash Pack…
You can find a great range of frames to meet all of your fashion needs at WantSunglasses. For round frames Giorgio Armani is super hot, for cat’s eye, look to Christian Dior or Marc Jacobs for great selections.
