STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Sun, Shade And Spectacles

Style Advice of the Week

Who would have guessed that the sun is finally shining in New York? After the past few weeks of scattered showers and thunderstorms, a sunny day is definitely a much needed surprise. However, the sun did not catch this Fashionista empty-handed. She was well prepared with her stylish sunglasses.

I’d have to say that my favorite aspect about sunglasses is that there are so many different shapes, styles and colors to pick from. Each and every pair has something special about them. At the end of the day, a pair of spectacles has the power to make or break an entire ensemble.

I love how this Fashionista paired a very feminine and delicate blouse with rockstar styled sunglasses. The two give off completely different attitudes and yet they complement each other effortlessly. Skinny jeans and simple flats are always a good choice when walking around the streets of New York. The look is versatile and is always casual. Headbands like the one this Fashionista has chosen are a perfect addition to an outfit for a sunny day. They keep your hair out of your face and offer a little pop of color (which is never a bad thing).

Now in terms of sunglasses, you need to find a style that fits your face and truly exemplifies your personality. If you are absolutely obsessed with the ’50s like I am, then a pair of cat eye styled sunglasses is right up your alley. If you are more into the incognito look, then try this pair of Oakleys. The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to a pair of shades. If you love the Beatles or anything hippie related, try out this pair from Forever 21. Lastly, if you are more of the retro type, this pair by Lauren Conrad is perfect for you.

As you can see, sunglasses come in a variety of styles. The best thing about this eyewear is that there is never just one type that is considered “the fashion.” Sure, every once in awhile there may be a trend that comes along, but since everyone has a different kind of face, a variety of sunglasses will always exist because one style does not fit all.

So, next time you head outside be sure to grab your favorite shades to protect your eyes from the shining sun. Be daring and try on every pair in the store. Experiment with bright colors, tortoise shell, even exotic shapes and sizes. You never know how great a pair may look until you try!
