Victoria Beckham Designed Sunglasses That Will Never Go Out Of Style — PHOTOS
You know the phrase about kissing a few frogs before you find your prince? Well, the same goes for the perfect pair of sunglasses, and even celebrities know the struggle. Victoria Beckham designed her own go-to sunglasses that you can now buy, too. Because when it comes to finding the style of your dreams, sometimes it's best to just do it yourself. And finally, after rocking these sunnies for over a year, Beckham is sharing her creation with the rest of us.
You've probably already seen this style if you're a Beckham fan, since the designer has been teasing us all but wearing these awesome shades. Named after herself, The VBs are just the right balance between classic and trendy. They appear timeless yet still make a bold style statement. These sunnies are described as "iconic yet wearable" on her site, and I can't think of a better way to sum them up in just one phrase.
The VBs come in six different rims — classic black, amber tortoiseshell, polka dots, lush green, green and black marble, and grey — so you can combine your personal style with Beckham's timeless design aesthetic. A pair of these fabulous finds will set you back $365, so just save a dollar a day and by this time next year, they'll be all yours!
“I really wanted to create a frame that felt like an instant classic; like a style that you’d always owned, or always wanted to own,” Beckham told Refinery29.
It looks like she's done just that. Now only are the shades just the right shape — slightly oversized, but small enough to allow for your fabulous brows to peek out — but they are made to be durable as well. According to Refinery29, the designer "tapped local artisanal workshops in Italy, and German optical manufacturing experts at Zeiss" to make frames that were long-lasting. And it's a good thing, too, since they'll never go out of style!
Beckham is no stranger to a good pair of sunnies. She's tried out a lot of styles over the years, and although some of them haven't quite nailed it in the timelessness category, they definitely have made a statement. Here's some of the styles that she's tried out before finding her perfect fit.
1. Oversized Hexagons
I can see the whole pretty and proper aspect to these shades, but there's a reason why bulky sunnies have gone out of style.
2. Tiny Aviators
Beckham's shades here are just a tad too small to be her go-tos, IMO.
3. Bubble Shades
The combination of almost completely frames round and super reflective lenses is too early '00s to be enduringly stylish.
4. Sunset Hues
Beckham was definitely feeling these ombre aviators at the time, but something tells me they wouldn't go over so well today.
Work it, VB!
5. Terminator Lenses
These bad boys were debuted at the 2006 Chanel fashion show, where she sat front row.
6. Clear Blue
Proving to be a true '90s star, Beckham owned her blue sunnies like they would never go out of style.
7. Big And Bulky
This style was a little too large for her face. In the early '00s, it was the bigger the better when it came to sunglasses..
She might have tried a few sunglasses duds in her day, but without all her experimenting, we might never have the awesome VBs.
