Sunglasses can definitely make or break your outfit. They are a must have item so it's worth spending a little time to land the right pair for your lifestyle and budget. It seems like every year there is a twist on a frame style that everyone MUST HAVE. I have found that over time, it's best to stick with what works on your face shape and also that the classics don't seem to ever go out of style. You can't go wrong with Ray-Ban or Chanel. If you are going to invest in an expensive pair of sunglasses, make sure to choose a classic brand and style. Above is a sampling of what I feel are great investment glasses. The brands represented are in the "better" category Everyone likes a deal. You can always search on line for discounts and free shipping but I always recommend trying the glasses on in person before buying on line. I have had great luck with a flash sale site called Beyond the Rack, for authentic brands like Tom Ford and Ray-Ban for half the price. If you are looking for Chanel, ebay (which can be risky) or The RealReal offer pre-owned designer items for less, but the competition can be fierce to get them. When buying on ebay, make sure to only buy designer items from a top rated seller like myself :) And finally, don't forget the designer retail outlets such as Nordstrom Rack, Last Call, Saks Fifth Off and Bloomingdales Outlet. If you are lucky, you may land your dream sunglasses for a fraction of the cost.
The sunglasses shown above are listed below with the exception of the Chanel which are available on Chanel.com.
