Everyone has different items of clothing and accessories they consider a wardrobe staple. That’s what makes up your signature style, after all. Hailey Bieber knows this well, as she has built up an impressive list of staples to help her channel that effortless, LA model off-duty look. Her key pieces include baggy jeans, crop tops, oversized blazers, gold minimalist necklaces (to be layered together), and Nike sneakers. When it comes to her other everyday accessories, Bieber’s sunglasses and handbags skew towards the classics with a touch of trend-driven elements. Her collection of sunnies is exceptionally on point — you’ll rarely see her out and about without a sleek pair from Saint Laurent or Linda Farrow.
Bieber, in particular, loves to wear the Saint Laurent SL 462 design, as it is a timeless butterfly style. In addition, she owns several sunnies from Linda Farrow’s collaboration with The Attico, which she first wore back in 2016. The Rhode Beauty founder doesn’t shy away from trying on more niche indie brands, either. Take Velvet Canyon, for example. She first wore the brand’s Zou Bisou frames in 2019 while running errands in Los Angeles. According to Velvet Canyon founder Bec Nolan, this street style stamp of approval held a special meaning for the small Australian brand.
“We first saw her in [the Zou Bisou sunglasses] back in 2019 and she’s been wearing them ever since,” Nolan tells TZR. “I love seeing our pieces being worn over and over again. It’s nice to know that even celebrities, with their endless wardrobe options, will wear key pieces consistently.”
Bieber likes to style her sunnies with everything from dresses to comfy-casual loungewear bottoms, and her recent looks below are proof of this. Ahead, get a closer look at which brands and shade silhouettes she likes best, then shop them too.
The stylish A-lister often turns to trend-forward frames when she wants to give her OOTD a sartorial edge. Take, for instance, her oval Tag 2.0 style from Balenciaga: these sunglasses are bridge-less and feature a thin brow bar instead. For an 818 Tequila event in August 2022, Bieber paired them with bold accouterments — think sheer stockings, chunky platform loafers, and a black shoulder bag from BY FAR — that rounded out her attention-grabbing look.
Another one of her go-to trendy frames is a sporty oval silhouette from Bottega Veneta. She wore them nonstop throughout fall 2021 and owns the style in three other colors: yellow, green, and black. Sadly, the Italian fashion house has discontinued the shades, so the model’s exact pair are out of stock. However, you can still shop the Bieber-approved Balenciaga frames, plus similar designs, in the edit ahead.
Slim Oval Sunglasses
Bieber often accessorizes laid-back outfits with slender oval lenses. This style, like the DMY by DMY pick she’s rocking here, is one of her en vogue selections. “The shape is a good way to add an interesting element to an otherwise casual look,” Los Angeles-based stylist Catlin Myers tells TZR. Shop the model’s exact pair, or browse through a selection of similar styles below.
Bieber can make any pair of sunnies look cool and this includes rimless shades. “The style is a great way to add some edge to a look,” notes Myers. “Pairing them with a leather jacket — like Hailey did — gives it a cool-girl vibe. These types of frames are especially flattering on oval or heart-shaped faces. And, they’re best worn with hairstyles that aren’t too fussy or done up.”
‘90s-Inspired Rectangle Sunglasses
One of Bieber’s go-to silhouettes is a ‘90s-inspired rectangle frame. In June 2021, she wore a pair of Linda Farrow x The Attico sunglasses while meeting France’s President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte Macron.
“While a bit trendy, they are perfect for right now,” Myers tells TZR. “The ‘90s are still going strong.” Bieber is on the same page as many other A-listers like Rihanna and Bella Hadid, who are quite fond of the sleek, square-shaped style, too. Pro tip: These sunnies suit round and oval face shapes especially well. “A wide narrow silhouette gives a complementary contrast,” Myers explains. “They are a pretty versatile style … You can either go full ‘90s by pairing them with a vintage-inspired look, or for a chic, sleeker feel, pair them with a clean, modern dress like Hailey did here.”
The street style star knows how to pull off a good pair of colorful frames. Whether it’s a white-on-black pair from Reality Eyewear or lime-green hexagon sunnies from the Linda Farrow x The Attico collab, Bieber seamlessly integrates them into her outfits. Here, for example, she teamed her white frames with an elegant crop top from Jacquemus in a matching shade. The exact pair Bieber wore above is available below, but there are also plenty of other styles to help you channel that model off-duty vibe.
“Colorful sunglasses will always be in style one way or another,” Myers tells TZR. “Anyone wanting to make a statement can rock them, and the key to styling them is what you wear them with. They can add a fun pop of color to a neutral color or black look.”
Bold Butterfly Sunglasses
The quintessential Bieber pair of sunglasses would have to be the SL 462 butterfly-shaped pair from Saint Laurent. “This seems to be a go-to for Hailey, but really it’s a classic for anyone,” says Myers. “This versatile black-on-black style will go with everything and works well with a variety of face shapes. It puts a cool, polished spin on any outfit — dressed up or down.”
Slender Metal Sunglasses
Bieber likes to keep a pair of slender metal frames in her sunglasses arsenal. She often seeks out gold lenses that complement her complexion and hair color. Thin metal frames are a good style to have in your eyewear rotation thanks to their versatility as both gold and silver shades will go with every outfit.
“These are an easy, timeless style,” notes Myers. “They tend to be mostly flattering on face shapes similar to Hailey’s, and they have an effortless vibe that works well for more casual outings.”
