Coquette: Romanticise your everyday

Have you been spotting bows all over the place? From hair accessories to decorations on bags, the hyper-feminine aesthetic is taking over. A level up from ballet-core, the coquette style is a soft and dainty, modern twist on the Victorian Regency era: think fashion with frills, lace, pastel colours and lots of pinks.

The coquette trend brings romance to our wardrobe, which can be embraced through our glasses and sunglasses choice, through the signature characteristics. This look infuses your every day with enchantment and timeless elegance. Discover our favourite coquette-style eyewear with complementary outfit inspiration.

Bow glasses

To embody the full coquette-charm, you need to choose these Liberty London glasses. With their playful take on a bow design, you can bring the romantic aesthetic right into your wardrobe. The complementary pale-pink crystal acetate is the ultimate ultra-feminine feature that is both charming and effortlessly chic.

Pair these frames with a delicate ribbon tied in a bow in your hair, pearl earrings and a pearl necklace to embrace the trend. Add a blazer and a pair of ballet flats to bring the coquette style to the office.

Pink and delicate frames

For a more practical take on a coquettish design, opt for these Karen Millen glasses. The smokey-crystal acetate frames are in a beautiful rose pink and beige ombre effect, allowing you to slightly lean into the romantic charm with a touch of whimsy to your everyday look.

Grab your favourite tracksuit, for a cosy and comfortable vibe and elevate with your favourite silver hoops to complement the subtle rose-gold metal detailing at the temple.

Romantic heritage

The coquette aesthetic is reminiscent of the Regency era, where interwoven, fragile lace is adorned on dresses and jackets. These Liberty London glasses offer a nostalgic nod to this style, with the delicate cut-out detail on the elongated corners. The pattern, with pearl detailing, follows the iconic Liberty Iphis art nouveau design and is reflected on the twisted metal sides.

The refined rose-gold metallic frames will pair perfectly with a trending pleated, chequered midi skirt with a simple grey wool cardigan. To incorporate elements of girly-core and elegance, let the frames do the talking.

Bow-shaped sunglasses

Is the sun shining and you’re wanting to ensure you’re wearing the coquette-trend? Then we’ve got you covered. As a leader in the coquette aesthetic, Liberty London has also created a graceful pair of sunglasses for you to add to your collection. These Liberty sunglasses are in bronze metal with blush pink enamel highlights on the rim and at the slim metal sides.

They are in the whimsical shape of a bow, which can be added to any laid-back outfit for the perfect girly and unique touch. Grab your favourite oversized shirt or blouse, light-blue washed jeans and trench coat, to create the ideal spring look. Through these bow sunglasses, you can celebrate femininity and beauty in every outfit you wear.

Dainty and soft sunglasses

Despite Vivienne Westwood being synonymous with punk and rebellion, the brand also indulges in the romance and soft nature of the coquette style. And the silhouette of these Vivienne Westwood sunglasses offers the ultimate feminine touch.

The softly rounded triangular metal lenses have delicate Rococo-inspired detailing on the hinge to incorporate the iconic orb and make these frames stand out. The subtle floral design adds a lovely small detail that elevates the sunnies above your current collection.

These luxury sunglasses would pair flawlessly with a lace maxi skirt or slip dress, and dress it down with your favourite pair of casual trainers to nail that cool-girl coquette style.

Floral fantasy

Looking for an overt and bold coquette pair of glasses? Viktor&Rolf’s limited edition, 30th anniversary frames are the ones for you. The angular cat-eye shape is crafted from a beautiful emerald-green crystal acetate, which gives hints of springtime. The star of the show? The metal roses are engraved on the temples of the frames—bringing the coquette-style to any paired attire.

Combine soft makeup, with a light-pink flushed blush and your favourite gloss, to represent the hyper-feminine aesthetic and with Valentine’s Day around the corner, these glasses will enhance any girly outfit you pair them with.
