|Sandals: £24, Next. Sunglasses: ToyShades. Jeans: £210, Paige|
If ever I was jealous of a company pipping me to the post of a business idea, ToyShades would be it. Affordable, cool, accessible prescription sunglasses and glasses. Who ever said you could only ever have one pair of lenses? Why not mix it up, and when these frames cost around £40 with prescription lenses (often while you wait!), you can afford to be a bit more adventurous.
And the range they have is so vast that whether you’re after something fashion forward, or a more classic shape, you can guarantee there will be something for you. Frames start at £20 and then standard lenses start from £20 (the only lenses you can’t get as prescription are mirrored).
So you can shop ToyShades range online or they have a concession in Topshop Oxford Circus currently offering 1 hour prescription turnaround (for most cases – my prescription was too strong sadly!), and it’s doing really well – no surprise there though, really – it’s a genius concept.
