I am an aviators girl through and through, but this summer I decided it was time to step away from my go-to sunglasses in favor of bold sunnies. Here are three summer shade trends that will probably be sticking around for a while.
1. Bold Side Panels: These may appear standard in the front, but a glance to the side reveals a bright color that brings a burst of summer to otherwise ordinary eyewear. This pair has a splash of electric blue with a classic tortoise shell front.
2. White: Seen throughout the decades on movie stars such as Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly, white sunnies immediately transmit glam. They continue to reappear in every era and are currently everywhere this summer. This is an easy trend to get on board with — white sunglasses are classic and easy to pair with all of your seasonal white ensembles. (This pair is from Old Navy, in stores now.)
Also, a few other ultra chic examples of this trend can be seen on Atlantic-Pacific
3. Round and Rounder: Go for the O for a shift from the common wayfarer shape. This trend is for the gal who likes to take risks. The bigger, the bolder, and a little closer to the effervescent Jackie O. This pair is from Anthropologie. A bunch of affordable options can be found here.
