3 Must-Have Summer Sunglasses

One essential in any girl’s wardrobe is a great pair of sunglasses.  Such a small accessory but it makes such a huge statement.

What I love about sunglasses is that they not only add to your look, but they express how you feel – I definitely have sunnies for my different moods!  So with summer in full force, it’s time to invest in a new pair.

Here are my favorite picks for a seriously shade-y summer:

The Glam
I’m a sucker for all things vintage and Christian Dior.  These oversized sunglasses will add super chic to any outfit and look keep you looking sexy while lying on the beach.  The cat-eye style is all the rage right now and this is a great option for you if you want to jump on this trend.  This pair is super glam and is great for Friday evening patio drinking, formal events/weddings, or days when you just want to let out your inner diva.

The Classic
Nothing gets more classic than a Ray-Ban aviator, ok well maybe the Ray-Ban wayfarer (which is one of my go-to frames).  There’s something to effortless and sexy about an aviator style and they look great with just about anything.  Wear on the beach, pair with boyfriend jeans and a t-shirt, or rock with a blazer and skinny pants – however you wear it you’ll look fab and classic.

The Casual/Everyday
This is such a perfect, no-fuss pair of sunglasses.  They’re light, they have a bit of color (perfect for summer), and are the perfect pair to throw on when you’re running out the door.  These are your perfect casual go-to – try pairing with shorts and a tank or a flirty sundress.  They’re perfect for the beach as well.  And at $11.99 you can’t really beat the price either!
Côte d’Azur Sunglasses, $11.99

So these are my three essential styles to get you through the summer.  There are a TON of options out there and at various price points, so don’t feel limited!  Play with color, size, shape – you never know what will end up working best!
