Are you familiar with these futuristic-looking sunglasses by Dior? The “So Real” shades have admittedly stolen the thunder from Dior’s “Technologic” sunglasses last year because both models were released around the same time, but now that I actually had the chance to try the “So Real” sunnies on myself, I’m kind of over them because they didn’t suit my face as much as I hoped they would. I did like the architectural concept of the “So Real” however and that’s where the “Technologic” sunglasses come in because they’re like the grown-up and sophisticated sister of the “So Real”, a modern and updated spin on the classic aviator silhouette. But “Made in Italy” or not, there’s no way I’d spend more than $500 on a pair of sunglasses. Sorry, Dior!

When it comes to setting fashion trends, Dior seems to be on quite a roll at the moment. First, we had the Mise En Dior craze and now we have everybody lusting after their uber-cool “So Real” sunglasses. Karen Walker and Céline, move over! If we could crown one pair of shades the official sunglasses of 2015, it would definitely be Dior’s “So Real” frames. And even though these sunglasses are everything but affordable at $595, virtually every fashion influencer – from bloggers to fashion editors to supermodels to celebs (and let’s not forget about all the countless Instagram sightings) – has been spotted wearing these sunnies. They come in a wide range of great styles, but if I had to pick a “So Real” favorite it would probably be the crystal (clear)/silver version with the blue mirrored lenses (last one pictured below). But no matter how much hype is still to follow on these lovely shades, there’s no way I would lay down almost $600 on a pair of trendy sunglasses that’ll probably be so passé 6 months from now.

Not the cheapest pair of sunglasses I’ve ever seen, but still way more affordable than the real deal.
