ALL IN THE DETAILS: The Perfect Summer Shades

Whether they’re hitting the beach or just walking the streets of Manhattan, everyone knows that the number one necessity for summer is a killer pair of shades.

The perfect pair of sunglasses can take any look to the next level. Like a necklace, bracelet or earrings, it’s an effortless addition to complete your outfit. There are so many popular frames and lenses that it’s tough to choose just one pair. The best solution is to splurge on a few!

Aviator, Wayfarer and Clubmaster frames with reflective and polarized lens are some of the most popular styles right now. Many of these unisex styles have made a comeback from the ‘80s and ‘90s. My personal favorites are the traditional Ray-Bans round-frame because they’re simple and match almost any outfit.

This Fashionisto is sporting a simple pair of clear-framed reflective lenses to complete his mostly monochrome outfit. To keep the focus on the sunglasses, he’s wearing a vintage tour T-shirt, black jeans and leather boots. Small accents in the form of silver earrings and a silver ring match his shades and add personality to his look.

How To: Get creative! With sunglasses the possibilities are endless. It is easy to find a combination of frames and lenses that fit your personal style. If you’re wearing a monochromatic outfit, choose a pair of shades that pop to add color to your look. If you opt for a more colorful outfit, throw on a silver or black pair of sunglasses and head out the door to enjoy the day.
