The Season for Sunnies!

March 21, 2015

I think I've actually forgotten what sun feels and looks like.  After such a cold and gloomy winter, I am more than ready to head to Los Angeles next week for my spring break.  The first thing on my packing list is a stylish pair of sunglasses! This season, say goodbye to aviators and wayfarers, because oversized sunnies are in!

I've noticed that, when helping my friends pick new glasses or giving out style advice, people tend to shy away from larger frames because they feel it gives them a "bug eye look" (like that's a bad thing?). But you don't have to be an Olsen twin to rock the oversized sunnies style! There are hundreds of different frames for every face shape, and here are just a few of my favorites. 

 

 

These Prada Baroque 55mm Round Sunglasses ($300.00) will FOREVER be my obsession.  These look best on heart, oval, and square shaped faces.  The glasses are large, but they are lightweight, which is great if you have a delicate face.  I just love the design on the side of the glasses.  It's so classic and fun, and these sunglasses are perfect if you're looking for something sophisticated.

 

 

Here is another pair of huge designer sunglasses, Jimmy Choo's Millie Bug Eye Sunglasses ($465.00). Great for all face types, these stylish shades are very modern.  I really like the gold accents, and the shape of the glasses is really unique! 

 

Wildfox is known for their crazy cool sunnies, like these Malibu Sunglasses ($179.00).  These come in a bunch of different colors, but this pink, brown, and yellow mixture is my favorite.  These glasses are 1960s inspired, and I just love the retro look! They're perfect for a fun and summery style.

These Marc by Marc Jacobs 57mm Oversized Sunglasses ($120.00) are another great choice! I love the red color; it's always fun to incorporate statement colors into your accessories! 

 

Designer shades are fab, but stylish sunglasses don't have to break the bank! There are plenty of frames available at very reasonable prices! I really love these Paris Metal Sunglasses ($36.00) from Topshop.  The color is perfect for spring, and they are a little thinner, which is a nice look for round faces! 

These Leith Penelope Tortoise Round Sunglasses ($34.00) are perfect statement shades for a bold and trendy shopper on a budget.  I love the thickness of the frame, and the tortoise pattern is so cute!

 

Shopping for sunglasses doesn't have to be a struggle!  Channel your inner fashionista this spring with a pair of oversized shades!  (But don't forget to snap a selfie before you buy your new frames, because sunglasses must be snapchat-worthy!!)
