Your Next Summer Staple: 12 Sunglasses to Play Faves with

With overstock from 4th of July discounts and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale just around the corner, July is one of the best times to buy summer shades. The hype over all the new seasonal must-haves has dissipated (and thus the markups) yet you still need to get through a good two (or if you’re in a nice-year-round kind of place, twelve) plus months of sunglass wearing weather. These are all chic and modern with a vintage flair, and most of them are marked down at their respective retailers too. Let us know what you’re eyeing this month (bad pun… we know.):

It’s a good idea to have at least one classic, go-with-anything pair of sunglasses. Pale pinks, classic tortoise shell prints, and natural solids with metallic accents are beautiful, classic color palettes to go with. When it comes to choosing the best shape of sunglasses, consider two things: face shape and hair. There are guides like this one all over the internet (of course) but it really boils down to what flatters YOU individually. Wayfarer and round lenses with a partial frame are safe bets, but when the occasion calls for a subtle, retro cat-eye, anyone can pull it off (with the right lipstick). Think about how your BROWS and BANGS will either be hidden or amplified by each style too. It helps to reminisce about your fave old pairs for a moment, and try to find a similar structure within a fresh new one.

Sunglasses like the red cat-eye and all the reflective versions above are like your most vibrant bikini: you don’t sport it every time you head to the beach, when you do it changes the whole vibe.
