Some fashion folks have an obsession with shoes, bags, hats, or socks (what?). My obsession is mostly with sunglasses. Much like pasta, I don’t discriminate. I love sunnies in all shapes and forms: round, cat-eyed, aviators…you name it, I dig it. And while some of us go hunting for dresses when temps start rising, I head straight to the sunglasses category of my favorite online shops. My motto: there is no bad outfit an incredible pair of sunglasses can’t fix. It’s true, give it a try.
Get your credit cards out and snag some of this season’s most coveted frames.
Le Specs Hollywood Boulevard Cat Eye
If you don’t know Le Specs yet, get familiar. They’re quickly becoming our go-to brand thanks to their flattering shapes and super affordable price tags. These babies below are on the top of our spring wish list– they’re a pastel and cat-eyed dream.
Ray-Ban Mirrored Foldable Sunnies
Every girl needs a pair of Ray-Bans in their accessories closet and if you already have the Clubmasters, we recommend these as your next purchase. The round shape is flattering on most face shapes (particularly square) and they’re foldable so you can package them perfectly into your tiny new spring clutch. Hello day-to-night, are you there? We’re ready for you.
Opening Ceremony Dart Sunglasses
If you dare to stand out amongst the crowd, look no further than these electric yellow stunners from Opening Ceremony. They’re the just the right amount of daring, and that pop of color will carry on nicely through summer.
CRAP Eyewear Nightshift Aviator Shades
We’re pretty sure Boogie Nights inspired these shades a bit, and we’re not mad at that. They’re that perfect counterpart to your black maxi and fringed suede vest and just a mere $58 (roller skates not included.) Take that, designer sunnies.
Barton Perriera Dalziel Sunglasses
Barton Perriera has quickly become one of our favorite eyewear designers. Their quality is unparalleled and their designs are both fashion-forward and wearable. While we have our eyes on a bunch, none quite give us goosebumps as much as the Danziel. Just look at them lenses!
Fendi 49MM Cat Eye Sunglasses
Fendi knocked it out of the park with their double-framed, geometric 49 MM sunnies. They’re practically a piece of art and well-worth the investment.
Stella McCartney Cat Eye Sunglasses
Stella has answered our spring sunnies prayers with her most recent cat eyes. The colors options are spot on (they also come in a soft blue) and the style is reminiscent of the 50’s circa Grease Lightening.
Oliver People’s Daria Sunglasses
We’re starting to see a 70’s trend amongst eyewear, and this style tops our wishlist. This simple, yet very bold, frame is perfect for swanky brunches with your girlfriends.
Smoke & Mirrors Shout Sunglasses
Another eyewear brand you should know is Smoke & Mirrors. And while all their frames are worth your money, we’re bananas over this yellow number.
Cutler and Gross Octagon-frame metal mirror glasses
Could there be a cooler pair of shades to have ever existed? Probably not, but we dare you to find them. Cutler and Gross never disappoint, but these octagon sunnies are just as killer as they come.
