When you’re a fashion person, sunglasses are the beginning and end of every outfit you create. They’re the icing on the cake, the perfect finishing touch, the je ne sais quoi that pulls it all together. At least, that is when you’re wearing an extremely on-trend style.
Growing up, I’ll admit I was a bit of a snob, and during my teenage years, I entered a phase where I insisted on only wearing designer sunglasses. Oh, how times have changed. I love a trendy pair of shades that make my outfit pop, and next to a $400+ option, my favorite sunglasses just so happen to be under $20. What’s funny is that since I’ve humbled myself in terms of eyewear, my style has only gotten better.
So with this, I ask you to take a chance on a pair of trendy frames that will replace an outdated pair you might have splurged too much on. I’m still investing in the trends that will last a lifetime (like oversize Celine sunglasses), but if a trend is new to you and you’re not quite ready to dive right in, there are plenty of options to try out the trend before fully committing. Below, find the five sunglasses trends replacing the outdated eyewear currently holding you back.
