2013: The Year of the Statement Sunglasses

Over at The Budget Fashionista they share the 2013 trend that is making its way around the fashion world.  The photo above from Manrepeller's Instagram feed is evidence of this trend that has everyone expressing their fun and colorful side.  From bold and flamboyant to brilliant and striking, the sunglasses of this year are the epitome of what fashion is all about.

Sunglasses are one fashion accessory I can't do without, being that I live in Southern California.  In a previous post I shared the collection that I have amassed, but the other day I did clean out the drawer that was full of sunglasses. I don't know why I held onto glasses that were scratched and broken, including a pair of wannabe classic Rayban aviators that have seen better days.

The practical side of me tends to gravitate towards the boring black or brown sunglasses in classic shapes, so will I be adventurous this year and go for a little color?

Here are a few sunglasses to consider if you're thinking about having fun with this latest trend...

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, these Jeremy Scott sunglasses could add a bit funk to a simple outfit... ($255, available at

If you like fun patterns and designs, these Stella McCartney over-sized teardrop sunglasses may just work... ($225, available at

Because I have alot of readers from the UK, I thought I'd share these Diesel sunglasses. I could picture myself wearing them at the beach on a hot summer day or even at the ski slopes during the winter. That is, if I ever do try out skiing. (£72.00, available at Red Hot Sunglasses)

The cat's eye are still a classic style, but add a bold color like red for pizazz...($22, Available at

If you're a UK reader and these statement sunglasses are not your thing, you can always go with one of my favorites, like these classic Rayban Aviators from Red Hot Sunglasses, which never go out of style. If you're in the U.S., the Sunglass Hut has a pretty good selection of styles and brands.

Will you be making a statement this year with your sunglasses? Do you have a favorite style?
