Follow the 70s trend when wearing sunglasses this season

This season's sunglasses trend is for the 70s vibe, which has made a strong resurgence in 2011, one expert has noted.

Georgie Pincus, personal stylist at StyleU, said celebrities are trending the Aviator and the Jackie O look at the moment, with dark lenses coming as no surprise.

She added that some styles never go out of fashion, and this is evident in new Tom Ford sunglasses, which change colours from season to season but retain a similar shape, with 'the classic Whitney' always being the favourite.

As far as the main designers are concerned, fashion shows were "awash" with references to the "laidback vibe" of the 70s this season, Ms Pincus noted.

"Sunglasses were at the forefront of this whimsical trend. Designers such as Chloe, Stella McCartney and Gucci sent their girls down the catwalk in neutral hues of Studio 54," the expert added.

This look is likely to be one of the key trends for autumn/winter 2011, the expert added.
