“These sunglasses ($450) by Parisian sunglass designer Anne et Valentin are the ultimate in femininity. They are available in six colors and feature textured acetate with an immaculate finish."
“I love these shades ($420) in this bright hue, Midori. The designer, Patty Perreira, says these frames capture the image of 1960s French pop with an edgy sex appeal, and I can’t agree more.”
“These Chrome Hearts oversize retro-inspired sunglasses ($1,495) feature floating lenses and gold titanium, the perfect blend of fashion and function. And for the photography and optics enthusiast, these shades are manufactured by German optical company Carl Zeiss International.”
“These seafoam colored glasses ($295) by Oliver Peoples are a chic variant on Pantone's color of the year, emerald. The sunglasses are perfectly proportioned, and the rounded shape flatters every woman's face. They have very mod, gradient shaded lenses.”
“Featuring Chanel's signature quilting detail, these silver metal frames have detachable quilted side shields as well as the classic interlocking logo on the lenses.” ($660)
