Looking for an easy way to increase your cool factor this summer? A pair of sunglasses may be all you need.
If festival fashion has taught us anything, it’s that your look isn’t complete without the requisite pair of stylish shades. Unfortunately, what constitutes as stylish is a little less clear. Can I still wear aviators? Yes. Are we over mirrored lenses? Of course not. What’s this season’s Wayfarer? The cat eye. Feel a little bit more eyewear-educated? We thought so.
To expand on that Cliffs Notes version of this summer’s sunglasses trends, we turned to the experts: your favorite celebrities. Hollywood’s A-list spend their days shielding themselves from the paparazzi, so naturally they know a thing or two about eyewear. And if you think about it, it was the Olsen Twins who were the first celebrities in sunglasses to truly own an eyewear look. Remember “homeless-chic? Styled along with layers of baggy clothes were their oversized frames. Only Vogue’s Anna Wintour has been able to compete for ownership over that shape (and we’re pretty sure knowing Anna, she’d win).
If oversized shades aren’t the right sunglasses for your face shape, we’ve got plenty of other celebrity-endorsed options to choose from. Looking for something a little less classic? Try Solange Knowles’ hipster frames. Caught the cat eye fever? Look no further than Rihanna’s retro shades. And if attracting attention is your main goal, then do like Cara Delevingne and sport some mirrored lenses.
