Shades Of Summer

Summer Sunglasses

Summer has once again reminded me of the impact sunglasses can have on an outfit. And this year I’m realizing they’re one of the most powerful accessories you can add to complete your look. Plus, let’s not forget the fact that the right pair of shades can make you look instantly cool. I normally prefer more classic styles for the sake of wearability, but I’ve been itching to branch out with louder frames, like this Thierry Lasry pair of thick translucent frames worn by Julia that almost feel futuristic, or this modern twist on retro inspired frames sported by Petra. I also love this contemporary take on the vintage cat-eye shape, bordered with playful printed frames, as seen on Olivia (similar styles here and here). But even though I plan to try these more current trends, I’ll always have a soft spot for the classic aviator, like those worn by Julie. They’re a sunglasses staple that remain on trend no matter what styles come and go, so you can’t go wrong. To shop these styles and more, visit Shopbop’s eclectic collection of eyewear:
