The title pretty much says it all. A fun pair of sunnies does wonders for a potentially “blah” ensemble. Summer’s a comin’, and I’m looking to make a statement this season! Although I love classic designs (think aviators & wayfarers) as much as the next, I’m all about fun versions as of late. Yes, first and foremost you want your sunnies to complement your face shape, but you also want them to reflect and represent your personality. Go bold! I mean, you only live once, right? And yes, I just said YOLO. I’m embarrassed, but I’m just going to own it, ha.
1. Embellished Sunglasses
These shades may not be for everyone, but I personally love them. Style them with a “simple” outfit to elevate your style game tenfold. Try pairing them with high-waisted shorts, a loose tee and gladiator sandals for an effortlessly fashionable everyday look.
2. Mirrored Sunglasses
These babies are straight-up BAMF. They come in an array of colors and styles so feel free to experiment. They may feel a bit 90s, but hey, who doesn’t like a good throwback? Plus, they look good so who cares about whether they’re “in” or not. Try styling them with a summery maxi dress and faux-moto jacket for an edgy getup.
3. Animal Print Sunglasses
Animal print is always a do in my book. As I’m sure you all know, I’m a huge fan because it has so much personality…and then some. Although I’m all about leopard coats and snakeskin dresses (fake of course), not everyone is gung-ho about wearing a bold pattern from head to toe – cue sunnies. Incorporate a fun pop of it by throwing on animal print shades. If you’re extra shy, sport them with neutral colors like I did above for a foolproof ensemble.
4. Cat Eye Sunglasses
Last but not least, and quite possibly my fave of the four, cat eyes. I’m wearing a tame style above, but exaggerated versions are impossibly fashionable. Brands are upping their cat eye sunglass game this season with modern touches, embellishments and colors so you can choose your level of boldness.
