Top Ten - Vintage Sunglasses

Vintage sunglasses are such a great investment. A good pair of shades will take any outfit to the next level as well as being practical in the sunnier months or to take on holiday. Trends will come and go but a pair of vintage sunglasses will stay timelessly stylish and enhance any outfit whether vintage, high street, designer or a mixture of all three. There are also some truly amazing designer vintage sunglasses if you want to invest a little more money. You can spend around £50-200 on a pair of designer vintage sunglasses that will prove to be a great investment. Like all vintage, if you care for them and keep them in good condition then they will only ever increase in value. Meaning you can treasure them for many years and also potentially sell them on for a higher price in the future.
