Jessica Alba is a girl after our own hearts. Not content with a single pair of sunglasses, she favours an entire wardrobe of sunshine shades! In the space of a few short weeks the new mum has enchanted us with a host of new season gems, each offering a fresh springtime look that we would be more than happy to channel.
First up was a nude oversized pair of Dolce & Gabbana frames, a chic hexagonal sunglasses wardrobe staple - perfect for adding a polished finish to Ms Alba's off-duty look. Next we had Dolce & Gabbana’s fabulous blue leopard-speckled sunnies – ideal for adding pep to low-key style, these are definitely top of our shopping list.
The next two frames from La Alba’s spring summer 2012 sunglasses wardrobe are the new ultra-hot Persol Capri Edition shades. Based on an iconic Italian villa in Italy the frames come in a host of covetable colours – as Alba shows with her electric blue and cream choices.
Finally she rocked another pair of Dolces - this time a pair of clear frames with a reflective lens – perfect for rebounding the paparazzi glare as well as bringing a fashion forward edge to Jessica’s simple outfit.
Looking forward to another sunny weekend, we are going to make like Jess and mix up our very own wardrobe of shades. From classic ‘icons’ to hot new sunglasses must haves, why commit yourself to a single look?
