Tired of those tiny sunglasses with pea-sized lenses that are, yes, very Instagrammable but do nothing to protect against the sun? Look to Princess Anne, a very unlikely style icon paving the way for the next big eyewear trend. Today, the 67-year-old, fresh off Saturday’s royal wedding between her nephew Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, attended the Chelsea Flower Show wearing a pert cream coat and kicky brown pumps that she coolly accessorized with a pair of sporty Adidas sunglasses. The frameless aerodynamic sunnies, which boasted mahogany red polarized lenses and are more often worn by UV-conscious athletes than an event-hopping royal, added just the right amount of contrast to the princess’s otherwise very prim look.
While Princess Anne’s choice seems a bit unorthodox - both because it is more expected for her to wear a classic Jackie O - type pair and also because they don’t resemble the current wave of Matrix sunglasses - the royal is actually right on trend. For Spring 2018, both Stella McCartney and Fenty x Puma showed some sporty incarnations on the runway - and it looks like like Princess Anne beat all of the Instagirls to the sun-deflecting punch by test-driving a pair first. What a ray of light.
