Traditionally, children’s sunnies probably weren’t top of your must-have list. Well they are now, as Stella McCartney launches a range of super cool mini-me sunglasses for kids. Our favourites are the iconic futuristic Falabella Chain Flat Tops (pictured) which come in an array of shades – think contrasting blue/turquoise, navy/yellow and pink/orange – complete with laser-cut chain design.

If you’re after a classic frame, the collection also includes aviator and wayfarer styles. And, bonus, if you have a child that wears glasses then check out the opticals range. The colours are more sensible but the frames still give them the style factor. Up there in the ultimate kids accessories for 2016.
