Summer’s finally at our doorstep, so let’s make the most of it! You’ll be ready for any occasion with a few simple outfits and sunglasses to enhance your summer look day after day while being protected from UV rays. Below are three fashion suggestions that are perfect for exotic trips abroad, weekend getaways to the beach, or an outing to one of Quebec’s many festivals.

If you’re lucky enough to be heading to a vacation destination, here’s a look that will give you the air of a celeb on the go in total comfort. Trendy sweats make it possible, and layering makes it practical. Choose natural fabrics to ensure you’re ready for changes in temperature while on board. For an eye-catching look, use black and white as your base, paired with seasonal shades to add style (we’ve chosen pink). Complementing the ensemble is the most important component: classic sunglasses recognized world round, Ray-Bans.

Whether you’re headed to a beach in our own beautiful province, on the Atlantic coast or in the Caribbean, plan on packing at least one timeless ensemble – a one-piece swimsuit and a long white tailored shirt as a cover-up – for an elegant, versatile and distinctly European look. Add a straw sunhat and oversized sunglasses to block the rays in style! 

A colourful look for festival season

Festival season has officially begun, which means it’s time to have fun wearing the latest trends, including colourful shades sure to dazzle the crowd. Take advantage of the party atmosphere to add a playful touch to your look with fruit-themed accessories. When you’re not in festival mode, wear your colourful sunglass frames to enliven an otherwise neutral outfit.

These are just a few examples from the wide range of sunglass frames available at all Opto-Réseau clinics. Click here to see our collections of frames.
