Hello summer Solstice, my favorite day of the year when the sun stays out forever! It tells me its time to: go to the beach, book vacation plans, read trashy novels, fit into my bikini, and get a hot new pair of sunglasses. It’s when our shades, due to breakage, loss or boredom, give us our first taste of summer gratification.
Celebrities and other A-listers have made sunglass shapes and style quite the statement accessory. Everybody wants to know who is hiding behind those “Foster Grants” and how they can attain that “Hollywood Endless Summer look.”
But picking the right pair to go with your ensemble can be such a challenge.
Simply start by channeling your inner grooviest self.
Here’s a start:
Oversized sunglasses have always been popular with celebs, but now they have been slimmed down to be less conspicuous.
Butterfly shapes have appeared on the likes of Nicole Richie and Rihanna, and socialite Kim Kardashian.
50’s Cat Eye frames are making a comeback this season. These fashionably loud frames are great for making a statement but not for the everyday look.
Aviator sunglasses epitomize effortless chic. They are classic and never go out of style. Shake it up this year with some blue or orange lenses.
Shades are all about having fun and picking the right shape for your face. Take a smile test. You will know immediately whether or not they are for you.
The right sunglasses are a great investment in summertime glam!
(Did I mention they’re also good for you. not like that lobster roll I’m craving right about now!)
Happy Solstice Everybody!
