Melbourne Cup Carnival has snuck up on us again and the big question on everyone’s lips is… are you ‘fashion ready’ for Spring Carnival?
• Dress – tick.
• Heels – tick.
• Fascinator – tick.
• Bag – tick.
• Hair/Make Up – tick.
All sorted right?
Not quite! That’s only five of the top six essentials for a complete race day look… You forgot about your sunglasses!
Sunnies are a must-have finishing touch to any race day outfit. They add can an injection of haute couture to your Spring Carnival style and I’m here today to introduce you to the perfect designer sunglasses destination in Melbourne to ‘get stylishly shady this Cup Carnival‘.
The Bupa Optical team can help you find the perfect sunglasses for your look this Spring Racing Carnival. They house a fabulous range of designer sunglasses in-store including Furla, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Missoni, Oakley, Oroton, Ray-Ban, Tom Ford, Zac Posen and more.
When you are getting dressed for a race day, remember that all your accessories need to ‘work’ with your dress and heels to complete your look. This includes finding the perfect colour and style shades to suit your face, personal style and outfit, at the Cup Carnival.
This season I’ve fallen in love with the Cutler and Gross range of sunglasses. The British luxury eyewear brand design styles which are seriously fashion forward, with designer considerations in size, shape and material. They are one of the more expensive brands stocked at Bupa Optical, but are in my opinion seriously worth the investment.
Cutler and Gross styles have been worn by some of the world’s most recognisable celebrities over the last four decades (including Rihanna and Sir Elton John) and this season I’m loving their Berry Red metal bridge shades (style 1008). Inspired by the 90s Seattle grunge scene, this is a classic compact frame featuring circular lenses and vintage pins… luurrvvve!
For any day of the Spring Carnival, you can’t go wrong with a great quality pair of classic black sunglasses. My top pick are the Prada Cinema sunglasses (style SPR 25R). Their geometric shape and metal detailing make them on trend and ever so stylish!
