Last weekend an unusual and mysterious sight appeared in the sky. What was this glorious, burning light we asked ourselves? Then it dawned on us; it was the sun and summer is finally here.
The annual dash for the nearest patch of grass is a British tradition, but it can be expensive fashion-wise. With little warning that warm weather is around the corner and we have to scramble to assemble a suitable outfit.
Designer shades perfectly pull together a summer look, and the good news is that you don’t need to spend a fortune to get your hands on them. Here are some tips on how to get eyewear by your favourite brands, without breaking the bank…
Buying designer products online from an authorised dealer is much cheaper than shopping on the high-street. Online retailers have fewer overheads to pay (like rent and retail staff wages) so they can afford to sell the same products for less. Our site has the latest styles from designers like Marc Jacobs and Ray-Ban, and prices can be up to 70% less than on the high-street!
Purchase Last Year’s Styles
Unless you work for Vogue, the chances are that no-one’s going to notice if your D&G sunnies are last season. They’re D&G and that’s all that matters. You will pay a premium to be bang on trend, which seems silly when sunglasses from last season still look super-stylish.
In fact, quality designer eyewear is built to last so it’s supposed to be worn summer after summer after summer!
Visit Voucher Sites
Voucher sites are a big trend at the moment and a great way to save money. Companies like Love My Vouchers offer promotional codes, which give you discounts on specific brands and products. There can be a fast turnaround on offers, so it’s worth keeping your eyes peeled for new deals. Signing up to email alerts will keep you up-to-date.
Shop In The Sales
This one’s a no-brainer; just like high-street brands, designers have seasonal sales. This is a similar point to purchasing last year’s styles, but you can often find offers on this season’s styles too, especially around Christmas and in the pre-summer sales.
If you’re on a really tight budget and even our fantastically-discounted sale prices are out of your reach, why not DIY? Buy a pair of our basic frames and jazz them up with sequins, glitter and appliques from a haberdashery store.

Buying designer sunglasses doesn’t mean you have to default on your rent. If you follow our simple tips, you can have a roof over your head and look good. Do you have any more ideas on how to get designer eyewear for less? Leave a comment!
