Style Swap: Tell Your Aviators To Go Fly A Kite

You really can't go wrong with standard aviators—the Tom Ford Hunters above are an undeniable classic. But peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a classic, too, and you wouldn't want to subsist on a diet of only the sticky kiddie favorite. Add some spice to your summer shades menu by plunking down for a pair of shield sunglasses. They're like aviators' edgier, more rockin' cousin. The Gucci Oversized Shields with logo detail above ($350) fuse a sporty, starworthy shape with timeless tortoise for a total glam rock look. Three of our other faves (in every price range) are below:

image
Have a mint to invest in a new pair of shades? Pick Christian Dior's Escrime wrap shields ($225) with brown-to-ocean-blue ombré lenses and coral colored stems. The huge label at the temple will let everyone know you have high-class taste, just like fellow Dior fans Gwen Stefani, Beyoncé and Paris Hilton.

You can still snag a designer label, even if you don't want to pay top dollar for a pair of sunglasses you'll probably either lose or sit on sometime during the summer. $70 will get you these peachy Armani Exchange shields . With rose colored glasses as swanky as these, it's impossible not to have a positive outlook.

image
Embrace the white hot heat of summer with Nine West's white plastic shields ($34). The slightly masculine shield shape takes on a feminine twist with this sleek, frosty color. If you're still getting used to the idea of swapping aviators for the more rock 'n' roll shield shape, this pair is a little less severe and a great place to start the trend.
