These are truly your next must-have accessories this season.
Oversized Retro Frames
These larger than life, oversized sunnies are making their way back up the totem pole. The oversized, retro look was quite a hit in the ‘70s, but there are plenty of modern updates that we love. From square-shaped to circular, these funky styles will give you summer look some ‘70s flair. Pair these frames with your favorite long-sleeved dress, and some white, chunky sneakers to modernize your ‘70s style. These sunglasses come in bright colors like blue, green, and orange, or more muted colors like nude and black. If you really want to jazz up your look, transparent or clear oversized, retro sunnies will make heads turn! These sunglasses are so fun to style, and you can find them at Urban Outfitters, ASOS, or any designer like Miu Miu and Dior.
Another one of our favorite retro styles made a huge comeback – the cat-eye. Me-WOW! Cat-eye sunglasses are so flattering on the face because of the exaggerated wing-shape. These are statement sunglasses, but they can still elevate any basic outfit. For a day out in the city, pair your favorite cat-eye sunglasses with baggy denim jeans, chunky sneakers, and a cropped tank for an effortlessly trendy outfit. Be bold in the classic tortoise cat-eye frames, or grab a plain black pair and call it a day. Celine has some of the brightest colored cat eye sunglasses like orange to make your outfit stand out. For a more affordable option, check out Urban Outfitters because they always stay on trend! Talk about a purrrfect style for summer!
