Is there anything better than treating yourself to something new to wear for the summer?

I’m sure you’ve already seen that clothes shops on the high street are embracing the cold-shoulder trend and throwing themselves back to the nineties with spaghetti strap mini dresses and chunky sandals. But, at our opticians in Derby, we’re celebrating summer with some stunning designer spectacles just in time for that summer holiday, garden party or wedding.

Designer Brand Spectacles

Over the Spring, we’ve had two big British brands that have been really popular with patients: Ted Baker and Joules. It’s looking like they are going to stay at the top of the trend list through Summer too.

Ted Baker Glasses

There’s something for everyone, with big, square frames, round styles à la John Lennon and some seriously cool colours available. Muted tones have been really popular, with patients opting for navy blue, burgundy and grey.

Ted’s style benefits are backed up by comfort. The frames are really lightweight – we’ve had patients tell us that they completely forget that they’re wearing them!
