My sunglasses collection
Can someone have too many sunglasses? Sunglasses are a summer fashion staple, but when you live in an area like San Diego as I do, having a collection of sunglasses year round is considered pretty normal. I did an inventory of my sunglass collection and realized that I generally stick with one or two styles, so maybe it’s time to try something new.
It seems as if retro styles have made a comeback this year - think cat-eye and square shaped - but I find myself gravitating more towards contemporary styles and liking this selection of sunglasses.
You could go with sunglasses that are “hot” and “trendy”, but after browsing a number of fashion websites and checking out what sunglasses celebrities are wearing nowadays, I got the feeling that just about anything goes and there really are no rules when it comes to choosing the best style of sunglasses. Besides, sunglasses - just like any fashion item you wear - is an expression of your own unique style, so wear whatever floats your boat. The best styles are the ones that YOU like!
What I do like is this pair of BCBG Max Azria “Lively” sunglasses in the dark color available at Glasses.com. Click here to browse other styles.
It’s been awhile since I’ve shopped for any type of glasses online, so I had no idea that sites like Glasses.com give you the option to choose five frames that you like and have it shipped to you so you can try them on at home to pick and choose the ones that fit good and look good. Then decide the glasses you want to keep and ship back the trial frames. This option is only available for prescription eyeglasses and not sunglasses, though.
