Tilda Swinton for Gentle Monster by Erik Madigan Heck.
Not every trend trickles down from the runway to your local mall but those that do tend to be everywhere. They wiggle their way into your brain until you start obsessively hunting for the perfect one. Now Trending is our weekly roundup of the thing that’s been haunting you.
There are very few things that Tilda Swinton wears that the average person could rationally incorporate into her own outfits. Red sunglasses however, happen to be one of the few pieces you should consider. Take a look at this Gentle Monster ad — the slick shades are striking against her skin and look especially stylish against the matching top. And it can work the same magic on everyone, even if you’re not into monochromatic dressing. A pair of cherry-red sunglasses can spice up a pair of jeans and a white T-shirt or transform a simple black dress and heels into a chic, powerful look worthy of any Phoebe Philo–lover.

These are by far the most expensive of the bunch but they also have a unique design — the retro-inspired frames feature two different colored lenses to give the illusion of cutouts at the edges of the eyes.
