London street fashion has consistently gained attention and recognition since the Beatles dominated the music scene. Prior to the phenomenal rise of the Fab Four, a lot of people thought that the Brits only dressed in formal frocks which reflected the classic inclination of the culture; the world was not yet aware that the U.K. already had it all figured out and instead of following the prevailing trends, the British fashion scene actually dictated their trends.
Nowadays, it’s still incredibly easy to distinguish the Brit fashion sense from the American’s. Brits easily incorporate high-end and humble pieces together for tstreet fashion that’s worthy of Vogue recognition. For most Brits, sunglasses are a requirement because they love soaking up the sun when there are generous amounts of sunlight and heat on “lucky weather days.” From formal galas to a Top of the Pops concert at Hyde Park to a trip to the local pub, sunglasses are a must have for both men and women.
For the year 2012, optical stores in London came out with the list of the most in demand designer prescription sunglasses. London optical shops (well, a great number of them) participated in this ranking to guide the spectacles-wearing public on the hippest frames for shades and prescription sunglasses. These include polarised varifocals which a lot of cyclists claim to use because these progressive lenses hold their own prescription and can accommodate distance differences for all sorts of activities; the top part holds the normal prescription and can be used for driving, the middle part is for moderate distance vision and can be used for watching TV or working on the computer, and the bottom part of the lens is for near-distance activities like reading and needlepointing.
The leading designer prescription sunglasses London optical shops claim to be really popular is still the Ray Ban Wayfarer. The young and hip individuals of London like the timeless “cool” appeal of the design and they are considered the most versatile because it’s easy to transform them from shades to regular vision-correcting spectacles. The frames also come in really funky colours and prints which a lot of people are drawn to. Coming in at a close second are the Ray Ban Aviators which are soaring once again in popularity due to the twenty-fifth anniversary of eighties iconic Hollywood movie, Top Gun.
Third is Yves Saint Laurent’s round sunglasses which are greatly similar to the Soho style which John Lennon popularised in the seventies. They are very chic but fall flat in the versatility department as not a lot of people have the right facial shape to pull them off.
Fourth is Dior Lady’s Lady 1 sunglasses which are must-haves for women who want a really sophisticated style. The frame’s arms are very textured and the contrast of black and red boosts the luxurious quality of the sunglasses.
The Fendi FS 5171 is also very in demand and Brits love Fendi as much as Hollywood does. The most popular colour is the one for the Havana style which just exudes glamour.
