Who’s to say statement sunglasses belong strictly to summer and all its sunny outlooks, micro-denim wardrobes and upbeat party moods?

Rather, one might suggest there’s a stronger argument for wearing them on the dullest, darkest, coldest of winter days. Surely the low weather points are the time we most need a sartorial lift?

Which leads me to these wild shades by Australian sunglass success story, Le Specs, the current go-to for Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and half of young Hollywood.

Cats-eye enough to be feminine with angled edges and graphic prints to make things interesting, they’d work just as well with a black trench coat or LBD as they would with distressed denim and a marle hoodie.

Consider them a metaphorical trip to Mykonos, minus the long haul.
