Summer is hardly complete without one (or two or three) new pairs of sunglasses. After all, you'll be sporting them on a daily basis and in a variety of different locations. A girl needs her options ... am I right?
My Ray-Ban Aviators are classics which are on regular rotation during the year in Los Angeles, but when I head out to the Hamptons for the summer, I add a few new favs to my collection. From the beach to the pool to porch happy hours to field trips for lobster rolls and ice cream, there's a pair for every occasion.
Here are my top 5 fav, fav, fav sunglasses styles for the summer ... plus a few suggestions of pairs to snap up in each trend!
This year's runways were filled with hi-tech styles and fabrics, so it makes perfect sense that the trend would infiltrate the accessories game! While scuba fabric is singular to skirts and tops, sunnies enjoy their moment in the future with innovative color patterns and shapes.
From Coachella to Fashion Week, mirrored sunglasses AB-solutely dominated street style photos. Dressed up or dressed down, these are a must-own.
A Blue Streak
Colored lenses are hardly new, but this year the hue of the moment is definitely blue. The beauty of this trend is that you can easily match it with any frame shape that fits your face!
Who said your accessories can't enjoy a little bit of flair as well? Dress up you sunnies with a bit of embellishment - from flowers to studded accents.
Some say the bigger the better, I say the more shapes the better! Heart shaped lenses are a popular cute-sy look for certain occasions, but put a grown up spin on it with angular points. I especially love this pair that Shay Mitchell created with Quay.
