What: White Oversized Sunglasses

Why: White shades are “it” this summer and look great against a fresh tan. We’ve seen hip New Yorkers and posh Hamptonites wearing them all over the streets and beaches.

We say, if you’re going to give this style a try and leave your dark Jackie O’s at home, be picky. Learn from celeb mistakes like wearing plastic Wayfarers in white that many of us left behind oh-so-long ago and scary reflector styles a la Britney Spears. Instead, take a cue from stylish gals like Nicole Richie who know just how to rock the trend.

Just like other peeper protectors, there are styles for every face and prices for every pocketbook. Slim, square and easy on the wallet are these Michael Kors Glam Horsebit Sunglassesicon available from Macy’s for only $90. Have a heart-shaped face? Nothing works better than wrap shield aviators by Ray-Ban with white metal frames. As for round faces, we’re fans of these Gucci Rectangle White Sunglassesicon. But that’s just the start. See more fab styles below from ShopStyle, and don’t forget to consult our guide to Fashion That Fits Your Proportions before shopping.

So what do you think? Is this another fashion fast one that Hollywood’s trying to pull? We say it’s hot whether you’re a celeb or a wannabe and can attest to the trend from what we’ve seen, but are white oversized sunglasses really “it” in your neck of the woods?
