While oversized black Jackie O.â€™s and preppy-chic tortoiseshell frames show no danger of going out of style, go out on a limb this summer and add some pop to your accessories repertoire with some candy-colored plastic shades. Chunky frames in vibrant hues of magenta, lilac, canary yellow and soda-pop orange are making a splash with trendsetters who know how to protect their peepers in style.
For over-the-top ’80s glam, try Gucci’s violet oversized horsebit sunglasses in gorgeous grape ($162 @ Bluefly.com) or, for more affordable retro, go for Delia’s Aviator Sunglasses($12.50) with plum-colored lenses. Diesel’s selection of bright plastic frames ($50 @ Overstock.com) is a veritable snow cone stand of eyewear: cheery cherry, orange and lime flavors will add color to any ensemble. And Forever 21â€™s F0982 model ($6) is like an optic version of a dreamsicle, with juicy orange and lemon yellow swirls.
