WORDS BY JOSEPH FURNESS
Picture, if you will, a mash-up of the Tour de France, chemistry class, and Cyclops from X-Men. What do you get? This season's killer accessory for men and women alike: cycling sunglasses. Because who wants to be looking 2018 when you could be flexing like it’s 2045.
How are we so sure that the cycling sunglasses trend will catch on? Because the likes of Bella Hadid, Alex Badia, Winnie Harlow and (wait for it) Princess Anne have been rocking the look as of late. And not only are these shades hot right now, they’re also future-proof. Fashion giants such as Prada, and Versace haven’t even released their take on the trend yet (set to drop in Spring/Summer '19), so why not buy a pair now and get your money’s worth?
They pair perfectly with our current wardrobe of technical/workwear fits, they’re extremely practical (due to classically being designed for use during performance sports) and — most importantly — they do a splendid job of covering our faces when we’re feeling fatigued or hungover (tbh, the latter usually leads to the former). So it’s decided, we’re officially waving goodbye to teeny-tiny specs and hello to XL shades.
