Trend Alert: Made in the Shades

Prep your peepers for a summer full of sunshine by picking up a pair (or two, or three…) of the season’s trendiest sunglasses. There’s a style for every face shape and pairs in every price-point, so there are no excuses for not indulging in the hottest accessory of summer.


Aviator styles take you up, up and away.

Splurge: Fendi’s signature B Buckle makes your handbag an “It” bag, and now it adorns the chicest sunglassesicon, too ($295).

Save: You don’t have to adopt a socialite’s spending habits to look like a hip jetsetter. Mossimo’s Modified Pilot Sunglasses ($17) look good by land, sea or air.


White frames are white-hot for summer.

Splurge: Ralph Lauren: Collection snow-white frames ($156) should be all the reminder of snow you’ll need when you’re lounging poolside.

Save: Isaac Mizrahi’s white rectangle shadesicon ($20) will go perfectly with your two-tone trendy swimsuit.


Go retro with oversized goggle styles.

Splurge: You won’t fade into the background while wearing these oversized Versace Rimless Shield Wraparound Sunglasses ($210).

Save: Test-drive this edgy ‘80s-inspired look with Old Navy’s Shield Sunglasses ($12.50).


Jackie O’s are always in style.

Splurge: Yves Saint Laurent’s logo sunglasses ($260) are a flattering take on Jackie’s signature big, round sunglass style.

Save: Preppy, clean and classic, Anthropologie’s tortoiseshell Tigress frames ($28) work well by the pool, on the tennis court, or on the deck of a yacht.


Colored lenses add pop to your peepers.

Splurge: Dior’s Diorly rimless shades ($395) are a lovely royal shade of violet with bold Dior D details.

Save: See the world though the proverbial rose-colored glasses when you don Kenneth Cole New York Rose Lens Sunglassesicon ($40).

How to Choose the Right Shape for Your Face:

* Make sure your eye is in the center of the lens.

* The frames should not extend above your eyebrows unless the lenses are very dark and your eyebrows can’t be seen.

* The lowest part of the frame should not extend down past the widest part of your nose.

* The shape of the top of the frame looks best when it mirrors your eyebrow shape.

* Never repeat your face shape in your sunglasses.
