With the highly anticipated 2017 season starting to kick into gear – and the temperatures slowly creeping up – it’s time to think about a fresh new wardrobe. With the latest spring and summer styles already filling up the shops, now is the time to get your hands on the hottest designs before everyone else cottons on, and, with some must-have pieces, it is truly a case of the early bird catches the worm.

On an island that is frequented by some of the world’s most stylish and uninhibited dressers, your outfits need to be given some serious consideration from head to toe if you want to stand out amongst the IT crowd. Accessories especially are a great way to set yourself apart, and can you think of a more important statement piece than sunglasses in the dazzling bright summer days the White Isle is famous for? Exactly.

From beach to boat, seaside restaurant to sunset hotspot, it’s a great idea to curate a selection of shades that caters to all eventualities. In an ideal case, this should include a high quality classic style that goes everything, a show-stopping fashion frame to dazzle with at the island’s trendiest destinations and one or two fun but functional pairs you don’t mind scratching on the sand or losing at a raucous pool party. Whatever your sunglasses requirements, your one-stop-shop for expert advice, friendly service and an assortment that combines cool up-and-coming brands as well as renowned designers is Optica La Mar in Santa Eulalia. Fluent in German, Spanish and English, owner Georg Seidel is a well-known and popular face on the island with many regular clients. With an uncanny knack for immediately identifying the perfect shape of glasses for customers before they have even tried a single pair – seriously, his abilities are comparable to a face lift – and a cheeky sense of humour, it’s always a pleasure to drop into the boutique on the seaside promenade in the pretty town.
