Every outfit instantly becomes ten times cooler when you add a pair of sunglasses. When those sunnies are made by Prada Linea Rossa you know you're onto a winner. Inspired by sport and lifestyle needs, the collection is dominated by sleek lines and contemporary shapes. Look for the red line that gives the collection its name.

Italian passion on sunny days with Prada Linea Rossa

Previously known as Prada Sport, the Prada Linea Rossa eyewear collection is heavily influenced by activewear and leisure time. The line was introduced in 1997 with a focus on skiing, sailing and car racing, and you can still see some of those sports' influences in the current collection (if you feel the need for speed). Tough acetate plastic is the main material used, perfect for nailing that laid-back everyday look. These sunglasses are fantastic on crisp, sunny mornings, teamed with a tartan scarf and a navy blazer. A pair of beige trousers and some smart loafers finish the chilled-out look, just grab yourself a macchiato and head out for a stroll in the park with your other half.

Up your game with sporty Prada Linea Rossa sunglasses

The sleek but sporty aesthetic of the Prada Linea Rossa collection makes it perfect for accessorising your 80s streetwear-inspired outfits. Next #ThrowbackThursday, wear your pair with retro trainers and a brightly coloured tracksuit top (and watch those 'loves' and 'likes' tally up). Prada Linea Rossa sunglasses are also ideal for popping in your hand luggage next time you jet off abroad (or head to the British seaside for a staycation). Teamed with a Breton T-shirt and a pair of red shorts, they add the perfect finish to a nautical look - ideal for blending in with the yacht set (or scoffing local seafood treats).
