Sunglasses do more than protect your eyes, they also make fashion statements. You can also wear oversized glasses to cover up your makeup-less face when you’re running errands and you might run into people you know. The point being, sunglasses are multi functional and their versatility always helps me justify purchasing a funky or sophisticated pair.

I like to purchase a variety of glasses, because sunglasses really change your look and help freshen up your style whenever you wear them. But, remember to consider the shape of your face, so you do not over accentuate a round face with extra round, oversized glasses. Aviators are one style that typically looks good on everyone. With that being said, let’s start shopping, ladies!

I love the old school shape that’s made an amazing come back in the fashion world. I really think this is a classic shape, although it may not look great on everyone’s face, it will look nice on an oval face. The best part about these fun glasses is that they cost $130. Marc Jacobs knows how to make a trendy style affordable, and I like to take advantage of trendy and affordable options.

I don’t think this next pair will be everyone’s favorite choice, but I adore them because I think they are fun and hip. Even though they’re not a sophisticated, classic pair, you can wear them as a weekend trendy pair. They are perfect for a boat or daytime party. I like to diversify my sunglasses so I have options for different occasions. I like to have certain glasses for my long walks along beach, glasses I wear during the daytime, and glasses I wear when I’m driving. This pair is an aviator style and comes in three awesome color combos. I love the blue and white and black and white.
