No matter how you spin it, flip it, or twist it we all know that when the sun hits, it’s time to break out the sunnies. Sunglasses are a great way to protect your eyes, but the main goal is to look cool doing it and what better way to do this than to get artsy with it? We curated some of our favorite sunnies for Summer ’17 by using color as our theme, so we have 10 sunnies that suit all your hue needs. So this is a call to all the cool girls and art babes to commit to color this summer!

Just like the saying “Every girl needs a little black dress,” every girl needs a sleek pair of black sunglasses. Black is a great color in general, it slims, it gives an edge, and it makes life a little more mysterious — which is always a good thing in our books. With the Edge Sunglasses by Celine, you’ll not only have a timeless pair of sunnies, but an effortlessly sheek addition to your shade archive.

With its monochromatic design mimicking broken glass, Top Shop’s Carrey Browbar Sunglasses are the it-factor when it comes to anything in the greyscale fam. You can even get away with wearing these to an all-white party if you’re feeling adventurous. I mean breaking glass and breaking rules are essentially what 2017 is all about right?
