Splendour Sunglasses Guide by Just Sunnies

July 7, 2017

The countdown is on. In only a few short weeks, thousands of people will flock to the North Byron Parklands for one of Australia’s most iconic festivals; Splendour in the Grass. A festival that gathers some of biggest local and international acts for a three day extravaganza of sun, dancing and music.

As is the way with any festival, the fashion is a crucial part of the vibe. Typically, Splendour draws a boho look that echoes the aesthetic of the neighbouring towns such as Byron Bay, Lennox Heads and Bangalow. However, there is certainly no shortage of glitter that goes around as well.

For a full day in the sun, your sunglasses are absolutely essential. Not only do they offer the practical benefit of protecting your eyes, but they also add a crucial element to your festival look. Looking to the trends from earlier festivals this year, here are our top sunglasses picks for Splendour in the Grass.


Tinted shades are all the rage right now. A call back to an era gone by, if vintage is your style then these sunnies are totally for you. Hot Tropic is an oversized aviator shape with a gorgeous rose tint that will make you the envy of all retro fashion lovers. As the age old maxim would suggest, life looks better through rose-coloured glasses.


Who better to honour at a music festival than Kurt Cobain? His iconic shades have made a comeback in style and Raen brings them to life with Figurative. The classic rounded shape is impossible to miss and will undoubtedly have heads turning when you get grooving at Splendour. Alternatively, if you would like to combine the frames with funky tinted lenses, try Kurt by Sunday Somewhere.


Step aside roundies, there is a new player in town. Hexagon shaped sunglasses have been going OFF as of late, seen sported on some of the highest profile fashion icons worldwide. Ray Ban 3548N are a subtle variation of this style with a rounded top but shaped bottom to add a little edge to your look. Jazz it up with mirrored lenses or tone it down with classic black – the choices are endless!
