You might have your swimsuits, summer dresses and shorts sorted, but you can't head off on holiday without a chic pair of shades to wear, now can you?

Cue Princess Eugenie offer us some inspiration. The bride-to-be has been wearing these statement sunglasses all summer long and we're in love!

Her round style is by Illesteva, a brand whose famous fans include Bella Hadid, Olivia Palermo, Sienna Miller, Zara Tindall and Alexa Chung. We love the contrast ring running around the inside of these black frames, which is a subtle but very striking design feature.

Sadly, Princess Eugenie's are sold out, but make sure to look at Illesteva's whole collection at Net-A-Porter. If the real deal is a bit more than you wanted to spend, check out the more budget-friendly alternatives in our edit below. With options starting from just $5, looking like an off-duty A-lister doesn't have to cost a fortune!

  • Words of wisdom: Nelson Mandela’s quote on an invitation to the couple’s wedding

    The adoption of this heartening message by English literature graduate Eugenie, 28, was prompted by her own admiration for Mandela.

    Two weeks ago she attended his centenary celebration, hosting a reception at Coutts Bank where she met veteran anti-apartheid campaigner Andrew Mlangeni. It is understood that Eugenie is friends with his grandsons Ndaba, 35, and Kweku, 33.

    Wedding guests are asked to reply to the Lord Chamberlain’s office at Buckingham Palace for Eugenie’s much-anticipated nuptials to Jack, 32, at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, at 11am on October 12.

    The dress code is ‘morning coat’ for men and ‘day dress with hat’ for female guests. Like her cousin Prince Harry, Mr and Mrs Brooksbank-to-be have invited members of the public. Eugenie’s sister Beatrice will be head bridesmaid.

    Meanwhile Eugenie, keen to look trim on her big day, has put herself on a not-so-delightful diet of Alkaliser juice – a cocktail of cucumber, mint, ginger, spinach, lemon and celery – with breakfasts of nut and seed granola and coconut and mushroom soup for lunch.

    Olympic diver Tom, 24, who is married to film-maker Dustin Lance Black, 44, last week posted this charming picture, of their son – making sure that Robert’s blue Adidas shoes were front and centre. ‘Too cute’ Tom said with a love-eyed emoji.

    Daley has been a brand ambassador for Adidas for years.
