Summer Shades Shopping with Deuxmode

Sunglasses are basically a life essential and, to us, a good pair of shades can complete a look entirely. Whether you're channelling off-duty in a tee and jeans, or going all-out-glam for brunch with the girls, sunglasses are the finishing touch that can elevate almost any outfit.

However, it's so easy to lose sight of why shades are so important for our health! Whether your sunning it up abroad or simply enjoying a summer day at home, protecting your eyes from the harmful rays of Mr Sunshine is essential. In fact, it's almost equally as important as protecting your skin!

Investing in a GOOD QUALITY pair of shades is a summer must and, below, we're talking about how the lovely people at Black & Lizars helped us do just that

Before now, we hadn't actually considered an opticians when shopping for new sunnies, however, after visiting the Black & Lizars Glasgow City Centre store on Gordon St, our opinion has most definitely changed.

From the moment we walked in the door we received the most fabulous, personalised service. Nothing was too much hassle and the lovely girls in-store were on hand whenever we needed some specialised shades advice.

From finding the perfect fit for our face to picking out the most fabulous frame colour, Black & Lizars definitely provide a unique shopping experience, so different to other eyewear retailers on the high street.


The thing that surprised us most was the amazing collection of sunglasses Black and Lizars actually had in-store. Think Tom Ford, Ray-Ban, Prada, Chanel, Gucci and so many more, the designer collection was HUGE, which naturally made our selection process so much more difficult.

However, after spending far too much time trying on different frames and taking far too many selfies, we managed to whittle it down to just two pairs.

Laura picked out a black pair of Chanel shades. Bold and classic, it’s a staple pair she’ll definitely keep for life. From the huge, almost mirrored lenses to the statement silver Chanel hardware on the legs, they are perfect for adding a touch of wow to any look!

Olivia opted for a gorgeous pair of tortoiseshell Gucci sunglasses. Featuring huge, slightly cat eyed, frames and the most beautiful, intricate detail on the legs, they are a total investment piece and will go with pretty much any look in her wardrobe!

So if you're in need of some new summer shades, we honestly couldn't recommend Black & Lizars enough. Along with exceptional service and a huge in-store selection, they also offer amazing guarantees. If your new shades start to loosen over time or anything (within exception) happens to them, just pop back into your nearest store and the amazing staff will be happy to help!
