Contrasts: pair your mirrored sunglasses with a contrasting complementary colour--opposites look great together; red with green, yellow with purple, blue with orange and so on!  This creates a high-impact look that's sure to turn heads.  Keep things simple with maximum effect by stick to just two colours.

Tonal: match the colour of your reflective sunglasses to the colour of your outfit and other accessories, keeping this tonal.  This creates a more subtle effect that is easy for anyone to pull-off, as model Lena Perminova demonstrates above.

Floral: Give your feminine florals an edgy injection by pairing them with mirrored sunglasses.  Delicate floral prints contrast nicely against a pair of statement-making reflective sunnies.  Choose a pair in a similar tone to your outfit to keep the look more subtle.

Weekend Wear: we love the way that a pair of mirrored sunglasses can instantly make your casual weekend wear look ultra-cool, seen here on blogger Sincerely, Jules.  Next time you throw on your comfy shorts and casual top on a Saturday, add a pair of reflective sunnies for instant cool.

Coordinates: tie your reflective sunglasses in with the rest of your look to make it more cohesive by matching the colour of the lenses with other colourful accessories.  Keep the rest of your outfit neutral for a more classic effect.  Giovanna Battaglia shows us how it's done!

Monochrome: if you're not into colour, but love a monochromatic look, you can still rock this trend!  Just keep your eye out for reflective silver lenses, instead.  They add a seriously edgy touch to any black-and-white look.
