As Australians continue to bask in the scorching summer sun (we’re not jealous at all), Bauer Xcel Media has published a stylish meme generator to its Cosmopolitan and ELLE magazine websites, sponsored by Sunglasses Hut. Leading up to the meme generator, readers can scroll through summer’s 10 most ‘grammed accessories, including plenty of sunnies, bags and hats, to have all the celebrity summer style inspiration they need before submitting their own selfie to customize their look.

To get involved, participants are required to upload their selfies to the virtual fitting room, pick their summer sunnies style, and find their celebrity match to unlock an exclusive voucher to spend in Sunglasses Hut. From oversized aviators and sparkly specs to cat eye glasses and colored lenses, participants can choose from 10 stylish sunglasses before adding them to their selfie to complete their look.

What’s more, to maximize campaign awareness and encourage others to get involved, after submitting their looks participants can share their customized selfies with their friends through Facebook. ‘Shop now’ and ‘download voucher’ call to actions are also featured upon entering to drive website traffic and boost sales for Sunglasses Hut.
