There are people who pull off the messy bed-hair look effortlessly and then there's me. The harder I try, the messier it gets and so the baby hairs, flyaways, oddly straight sections and uneven middle part has become the norm for me. Not even a simple plait could save me.

However, these amazing sunglasses have saved me from my awkwardness behind the camera. I've never really been a sunglasses person because I spend most of my time at uni and unintentionally come across as a snob when I wear them on campus. But this pair is quickly growing on me and I always carry them in my bag wherever I go.

Wayfarers are the classic shape - they suit practically any face shape and are unisex (which, for some strange reason, is an important factor for me). No doubt, aviators and reflective lenses are equally great but I always opt for the understated and complimentary rather than bold, statement pieces (...aka safe?). Nonetheless, this is definitely a step up from my cheap pair where the 'tortoise shell' frame was literally peeling off. When it comes to investment pieces - a quality pair of sunglasses, in a colour and style that reflects your personal style and is one you'll wear often, is a wise one to have. I've learnt my lesson there.
