You know summer has arrived when you see people getting excited about a slew of festivals. Once you’ve figured out what to wear, the next step is rounding off your outfits with the right eyewear. Below we share inspiration for three major festivals.

Summer is here, festival tickets are booked and you’ve found a sitter for your kentia palm plant. Now all that’s left is finding the perfect accessories for the festival. Whether you’ll be rocking in the mud or consuming copious amounts of Scottish brie, we’ve got you covered with great options to wear. After all, with so many fun events coming up, it’s the perfect excuse to try something new and get some new frames.

Literary bookworm

Book lovers unite because there are many literary festivals dotted around the country to enjoy. Stick to basics like thick-rimmed frames in black and semi-rimless browliner styles for a pared back look. And because book festivals aren’t all novels and poetry, fun coloured frames in red and firecracker prints are perfect for when the band starts playing.


Who doesn’t love a food festival where you can taste delicacies from around the world? While you indulge in chutney and crackers, don’t forget your glasses. Thick-rimmed styles in trendy clear and classic tortoiseshell colours are great options that’ll complete your look without taking attention away from that yummy gluten-free pizza.

Rock n roller

Whether you like rock, pop or everything in between, get into the festival spirit with round and pilot style shapes. Thin metal frames are the perfect materials for unleashing your inner rocker. As for frames that will withstand your adventures in the moshpit*, opt for plastic and acetate frames in fun colours because, that’s what festivals are for.

Scout, Maverick – just add tints to turn into prescription sunglasses

Thinking about how to handle a prescription when the sun comes out? Just add a tinted lens your frames to turn them into prescription sunglasses. We suggest doing this with your free second pair!

*We don’t advise going into moshpits wearing eyewear as this could cause an accident.
