It’s been incredibly sunny these past few days, giving us an excuse to break out (or buy) our favorite pair of sunglasses. Summers are mostly spent outdoors, and the city is no exception. As well as fun accessories, our eyes need serious protection against those harsh UV rays. So whether you’re strolling through Central Park or running to your next class, sunglasses are a summer essential in New York City. Luckily, there are countless shapes and styles to choose from to easily make your own.
On one of the sunniest days this week, I spotted this Fashionista rocking a pair of circle lenses from Marni that perfectly tie her outfit’s modern ‘70s vibe together. She sticks with thick solid brown frames that complement her lightweight vintage blouse, cream culottes from Zara and classic pair of black Chelsea boots. It’s the ombré lenses, however, that add the standout factor to the ensemble. The dual tone, which can especially be seen in strong sunlight, is super versatile and applicable to any style. This neutral color makes them easy to pair with different outfits, as well. Sunglasses with fun frames and statement lenses are definitely a must-have accessory this summer.
How To: The key to finding the perfect pair of sunglasses is figuring out which lenses best fit your face shape. From there, choose a frame that you feel best suits your style. To rock this look, go for a solid pair of frames with ombre lenses that will go with most of the pieces in your wardrobe. Stick with a neutral color to accomplish the same vibe as this Fashionista’s ensemble.
