Fashion Favorites: Sunglasses

Sunglasses are an important aspect of any daytime look. They not only complement your outfit, but also reflect your style. Even if you're just running out the door in shorts and a top, adding a pair of oversized sunglasses and a messy bun makes your look all the more chic. The 4 main types of sunglasses to have are: aviator, cat eye, wayfarer, and Jackie O. 

Aviators look good on just about everyone and are great for every day. They have classic metal rims and are really lightweight. My favorite brands for aviators are Ray Ban and Gucci. 

Cat eye sunglasses have a really sophisticated classic style that I love. Make sure to get an oversized pair, all the more glamorous, in black or tortise. Vintage cat eye sunglasses are great, but if you're looking for a modern brand you can't do better than Dior. Anytime I see amazing cat eye sunglasses they always turn out to be Dior. 

Wayfarers are also a great every day look. They're timeless and cool. I love the oversized black Ray Ban's, but Chanel also makes exceptional wayfarers for a more designer look. 

Jackie O glasses are what you want to wear for special daytime occasions with a nice dress, say if you're going to the races or a daytime wedding. With these type of glasses the bigger the better. You can't go wrong with Celine, Dior, or Chanel, for these. 

Some of these brands can be expensive, but if you absolutely love and buy a great pair of sunglasses they will last you a long time. If you're willing to put thought into your outfit, then having great sunglasses will make you all the more stylish. Make sure to try on various pairs and brands to make sure that the sunglasses complement the shape of your face. No matter how many pairs you try on you'll always find your way back to your favorites!
