There are some people who wear sunglasses year-round, at night, and even indoors. If I’m being honest, I think the sunglass-obsessed crowd can go a little overboard (and come off totally antisocial), but I get it. Sunnies might just be one of my favorite accessories EVER—which explains why, during summer, I don’t leave home without them. Here are my 6 favorite sunglasses styles for summer 2018.
Here are my 6 favorite sunglasses styles for summer 2018.
I’m all about using eyeliner to create the perfect cat-eye, but for makeup-free days—especially in the heat of summer—I prefer to make a statement with some cute sunglasses instead. These cat-eye frames are especially chic because they’re small and narrow, and I’d rock them with a vintage dress or swimsuit for a throwback look that’s totally modern.
You’d have to literally be living under a rock to miss the pink trend that’s sweeping fashion and beauty—everything from bags to shoes, eyeshadow to hair is getting washed in a rose-colored hue, and in my opinion, there’s no better way to jump on board than with pink sunnies. Not only are the frames a gorgeous soft pink, but the lenses are tinted, too, so you get a double dose of this fun, summer shade.
The 90s are everywhere in fashion and beauty, including sunglasses. These oval shades are perfectly vintage in a super trendy way, with thick lines and bold colors that will render your makeup routine completely irrelevant. Seriously, you can slide these on, add a swipe of lip gloss, and you’re ready to go be the life of any party.
Summer’s the time to go bold with fashion and take risks that seem a little over-the-top for fall or winter. These sunglasses take bold to a new level, and I love them because not only do they have a cool holographic tint that makes them a perfect fit with any outfit, but they’re also large enough that you can see without being seen (read: #incognito). Now, to be clear, these aren’t the shades you wear if you’re trying to blend in with the crowd. Wear these if—and only if—you’re ready to be the talk of the town.
Looking for sunnies that offer a pop of color but are still chic and sleek enough to work with nearly any outfit? If so, these Ray-Ban shades are totally perfect. The cool, red/burgundy hue reminds me of a summer sunset, and the square frames look good on both oval and round face shapes.
There’s a reason aviator-style sunglasses are popular year after year. I mean, seriously, how can you not feel like a movie star every time you slip them on? Admittedly, these won’t do much for sun protection, but they will do EVERYTHING for your fashion game. The holographic shades are the perfect pair of sunnies to turn a simple t-shirt and shorts into head-turning fashion.
