Bright is all right

Sunglasses are a year-round necessity here in the UAE but, in some other countries, spring is the time of year to invest in some nice sunglasses, so we're going to embrace that fact. First up are these eye-catching Danica Patrick Nascar wraparound shades. Brightly coloured and reasonably priced, they're a winner.

Porsche poser

If you're looking for sunnies with a bit more sophistication, this Porsche Design pair is the ones for you. The shape is classic but with a modern twist in that there's a carbon fibre-like design running across the top of them. In addition to this cool black pair they also come in dark brown Havana, dark red and blue.

Check them out at porsche-design.com. Dh1,100.


The right Formula

These 2012 Sebastian Vettel/Red Bull Racing shades are so new they're not even on the Red Bull store website yet. Luckily we tracked them down so you, too, can wear the sunglasses the two-time F1 champion will sport this season. Navy, and badged with the official team logo, you're bound to look like a winner in them.
