Trend Watch Wednesday: {Specs + Smooches}

Two of my fav ways to heat up my summer look are fun sunglasses + killer new lip color. And when you get a dynamic combo that works soooo well together?

Magic, honey.

Here are some drop-dead-gorgeous lipstick/sunglasses combinations that are sure to brighten your face and turn some heads (in a good way!)

Demure Darling

Gucci Metal Frame Aviator and Burberry Beauty Lip Cover in Delicate Rose
This delicate pair of aviators and blush colored lip color is the perfect combo for giving good face. Try this look with undone hair (loose curls or a top knot) and a stylish pair of skinnies for a summer slam-dunk.

Wild Child

Gucci Oversized Acetate Sunnies and Guerlain ‘Rouge Automatique Lip Color in Champs Elysees 165
Unexpected sexiness is what this duo is all about. Celebs like Rihanna and Katy Perry are known for rocking colorful shades and bright lips. If you’re feeling crazy, trying pairing this combination with a maxi dress in hot pink, cerulean blue or chartreuse yellow. Not ready to go all out just yet? Pair the combo with a fun nail color, like Essie nail polish in Coral Reef, to take a walk on the wild side.

Paparazzi Princess
Victoria Beckham Modern Cat-Eye Acetate Sunnies and Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lips in Shocking Pink
This pout/specs combination screams “I’m ready for my close-up.” Step in front of the camera with a pair of big ‘ole cat eye sunnies (a ‘la Twiggy) and a classic true pink lipstick or gloss. The perfect look for those mornings when you had one too many Cosmos the night before, these saucer-sized lenses ensure you always look magazine cover-worthy.

Sophisticated Lady

House of Harlow 1960 “Nicole” Shades and YSL Volupte Lip Color in Rose Paris N. 27
Coral red lips + a fantastic pair of vintage-with-a-modern-edge shades are ideal for any aspiring fashionista. This summer, bright coral lips will be uber-popular amongst the trendy crowd and, best of all, you don’t have to be a tween to pull this off. In fact, this combo works best on ladies ages 25-60!

Retro Vixen

Ray Ban Cat-Eye Frame Acetate Sunglasses and YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm in Juicy Grapefruit
Sport these tortoise shell cat eye shades and pale pink lipstick and peeps everywhere will swear you’re Audrey’s twin sis. Channel your inner Ms. Hepburn and make her trademark style all your own. This look goes wonderfully with a side swept bang and curve hugging pencil skirt. Oh, and don’t forget a pair of pearl studs to top off the retro fab ensemble!

What is your favorite lip color + sunnies combo? Do you love a glam cat eye frame with a daring red lip? Are you more of an aviator/sheer gloss kinda gal? Do tell!
