Fifty Shades

Does your wardrobe need a little pick-me-up? Well before you head out to do some major damage on your Amex the easiest way to amp up your game is with some super glamorous, super chic sunnies!!! And don’t fret about splurging a little on a pair that you die for.  The great thing about this accessory is you can rock it all year long from season to season.  Sunglass hunting should be fun so be sure to play around with different shapes, styles and colors.  Varying your sunglasses is a simple way to give the same outfit a whole new look!!!  For example, think of your basic cut-off jean shorts and white t and add a funky red cat-eye frame for a fun, edgy look.  Take this same basic ensemble and give it a more boho vibe by channeling your inner hippie with some 70’s-esque round frames.  Well now we know why Nicole Richie owns as many pairs of sunglasses as there are stars in a night sky!!! Sometimes a great sunnie is all a girl needs to catapult her look to chic status!!! Check out my favorite sunglass styles below!

Mirrored
Time to head into the future with this sci-fi look.  The ultra-reflective lenses have a more casual vibe and are best worn on your dressed down days!

Cat-Eye
I’m obsessed with the retro 50′s style, über chic cat-eye frames.  What I love about this look?  Sexy yet versatile these style sunnies can easily take you from  daytime errands to an evening cocktail party!!!  An extra bonus: The cat-eye looks flattering on almost all face shapes!

Clubmaster
This boyish silhouette first came onto the scene in the 50s. Known as “brow-line” glasses back then, Ray Ban popularized the design when it introduced the “Wayfarer Max” and “Clubmaster” in the 80s. Today, the glasses still retain its clean, retro appeal but get updated with funky hues!

Embellished
It’s all about making a fashion statement with these style shades.  Think of your favorite shades but now adorned with jewels, crystals and funky prints.  This style looks best when the rest of your outfit is kept simple or solid. Most importantly, this style is all about fun so make sure you’re having lots of it when rocking your embellished shades!!!
