If you’ve ever needed inspiration in the sunglasses department, this post is bound to have you covered for life. Let’s face it–sunny beach days, rainy afternoons, swollen eyes, whatever the situation may be, a good pair of shades is always a necessity. And being that we are smack in the middle of summer on this very day (which by the way, it’s practically August, so where on earth did summer go?),
it’s time to revamp your sunglasses department and add a few cool shapes, colors, prints, and looks to your repertoire. If you aren’t ready to make the leap to a hardcore cateye, why not start by opting for a leopard print pair? A fun cateye can be bold and statement making. So can the very round ones, whose shapes and styles are endless. Out-there prints may not be for everyone, but they can be fun to play with! If you’re thinking off the pair in your purse at the moment, and it’s looking like a simple Ray-Ban aviator (nothing wrong with those!), it’s time to experiment.
