From cat-eye versions (both exaggerated and subtle) to circular frames, this season is all about warm tones in cheerful shapes. Save for a certain iconic fashion editor, we’re imploring all street style stars to push those black oversize thick-frame glasses to the back of the drawer. (And while you’re at it, you may want to give those well-worn aviators a break.) Tinted and reflective lenses in playful silhouettes are the direction to go in to ensure staying on-trend. Trust us, the right pair of sunnies have a surprising amount of statement-making power.
The last, but definitely not least, rule to follow is matching your face to the appropriate frame. One easy pointer to remember: try to go with a shape opposite of your face. So if your face is round, stay away from round glasses—opt for square or rectangular instead. Heart-shaped faces are complemented best by a cat-eye silhouette, while those with an oval shape will find round frames most flattering. The best part about all of this? Spending less on your sunglasses means having a bigger collection. This roundup of our favorite of-the-moment pairs is all under $100. —AZ
