In my opinion, accessories (especially sunglasses) are the best finishing touch to any look, regardless of the season. Adding sunglasses to your ensemble is the way to convey your cool, however—much like shoes—there are too many styles on the market to choose from so before you invest in your go-to pair, here are a few qualities you should look for in your new shades:
Ideally you want a pair that you can wear to the office, to your bud’s backyard BBQ, biking with your friends and brunch with your babe. The solution? A frame that’s classic and can stand the test of time, like aviators and wayfarers. If you’re not sure what shape best complements your face then I suggest you go with an Aviator frame. It’s always a safe bet.
If you’re opting for a classic frame then look beyond black as the color option. Think: patterns, colors and textures. This subtle detail will allow you to stand out and express yourself. Don’t go for basic. Basic is boring.
Last but not least, stay within your budget. You will be very disappointed if you break the bank on a pair of sunglasses you end up losing or breaking.
To help you find the perfect pair of sunglasses, I’ve compiled an assortment of sunglasses for you to choose from. They embody all of these qualities (versatility, creativity and affordability) and are available in a wide range of colors, textures, lenses and finishes. Remember, you’re not shopping for an accessory to only use this season. You want a nice pair of designer frames that will last well past the summer. Consider it a splurge without an expiration date.
