Byrdie: 33 Pairs Of Cool Sunglasses We’re Eyeing For Spring
You have options.
If the regurgitation of trends over the last few decades has taught us anything, it’s that everything (eventually) comes back in style. Sunglasses are no different. The teeny-tiny silhouettes that reigned in the early ‘90s have regained popularity across generations while brands of all sizes are reinterpreting the light-tinted gradient frames that were big in the early aughts. So regardless of which style you go with today, it's bound to be just as relevant in the years to come. In other words: Don’t be afraid to experiment with different shapes or prints when investing in your next go-to pair.
Today, the options for sunglasses go far beyond the traditional brown and black acetate styles. Whether it’s by incorporating a pop of color or taking a risk with a bold animal print, there are a few different ways to give your eyewear collection an update. The reality is: there’s no such thing as an impractical pair of sunglasses. Much like other essential accessories, they have the power to elevate a look.
Part of the second collection designed in collaboration with influencer and editor Alyssa Coscarelli, the curvy, cat-eye shape is unlike anything on the market. If you’re feeling bold, go with the ‘Crocodile’ green or ‘Sky’ blue pair.
